Cherry Blossom Wedding Dress by Claire Pettibone Les Fleurs Wedding Dress Collection

Introducing Les Fleurs

I'm always dreaming of flowers, but this season, I let my botanical impulses run wild. Every collection begins with a spark, a point of inspiration, and so it began this time with some custom gowns for a few of our brides. A blue embroidery to match her eyes and the sea, another with Peonies blooming along sage branches. These custom gowns were so beautiful, I was compelled to create this new collection, Les Fleurs. And although flowers for spring may be a cliché, there is a reason for their timeless quality; an allure that cannot be denied. Each flower has its unique charm and character. From the promise of hope in the first cherry blossoms of the season, to lush and intricate peonies symbolizing love and good fortune, I've infused the essence of flowers into every aspect of this collection. Let the flower-filled weddings begin! Colorful Wedding Dresses Odessa Blue and Peony by Designed Claire Pettibone Odessa Blue Wedding Dress with back detail with corset styling Wedding Dress Odessa Blue in front of Floral Archway Bride holding Wedding veil in Odessa Blue designed by Claire Pettibone Corset back detail wedding dress with blue embroidery Odessa Blue Odessa Blue Wedding Dress with back detail with corset styling Bride holding Wedding veil in Odessa Blue designed by Claire Pettibone Embroideries are almost like paintings for me, and choosing the colors for the threads and placing the elements on the body in a way that brings a lyrical and whimsical beauty, a breathtaking moment, as happens when those first blossoms of spring appear after a long winter…it truly never gets old to me. The Odessa gown is a favorite of our brides, and for those looking to infuse a little "something blue" into their wedding dress, take a look at Odessa Blue. Shades inspired by the sea and sky, these vibrant flowers bloom along metallic silver branches and leaves. The softly structured bodice adds support, and in this case, the dress is lined in our Pearl silk. We kept the back bodice sheer, to highlight that pretty low back, and the floral appliques trail along the shoulders for either a strap or an off-the-shoulder drape (or both). Paired with our floral accessories, the Azure Wildflower hair vine is hand crafted by Erin Rhyne and available exclusively in our Flagship salon in Los Angeles, and our online shop. The pale blue centers of these hand-painted flowers perfectly match our blue silk and embroideries.

A renowned cake artist known for her exceptional designs and delectable flavors, her cakes are literally works of art, and they couldn't be a more perfect pairing with my collection this season! I thought it would be so fun, given the floral elements that are clearly such an integral part of both of our work, to collaborate and create a few cakes inspired by these dresses. My flowers are made of threads embroidered on tulle, and hers are made from spun sugar - every petal and berry sculpted and painted by hand. Aren't they just too pretty to eat? But of course, the cake is also delicious! Kelly works closely with her clients to create a unique and personalized design that aligns with their wedding style and vision, so for all you nature lovers looking for a wedding cake sure to inspire oohs and ahs, just give her a swatch or a photo of your Claire Pettibone gown, and let her whip up some edible art!

And hello to these stunning cape sleeves! My signature embroidery in shades of dusty rose and sage green, this floral strewn sweetheart neckline silhouette has you draped in blooms and blush silk. This time with a sheer bodice, it can be lined if you prefer, but I have to say, I love the sheer play of branches and leaves against skin in a subtle, and very feminine ode to nature's beauty. Speaking of which, a huge thank you to another female collaborator on this shoot, Azalea of Wild and Behold Flowers. They're a boutique floral design studio that creates stunning floral arrangements for weddings and events. In this case, since the dresses were quite colorful, we wanted to impart the feeling that the bride herself was the queen of all the flowers, so Krystin of K Bella Events guided Azalea and her team to create this stunning floral arch as a frame for our beauties. Greenery, and neutral cream blossoms add impact to this dreamy greenhouse at Lavendar Marketplace & Workshops. This historic home built in the 1890's was a dream venue for our hothouse "flowers" to make their debut, and my long-time friend and collaborator Jeremy Chou photographed it all to perfection. Jeremy is one of the top wedding photographers in the world, and he's shot my dresses many times, so it was a joy to join forces for this project. Dmitry from Love is Wedding was there to capture it all on video, so if you've been following my IG reels or joined me recently on TikTok, you'll see a glimpse into this dream world of Les Fleurs.

I was lucky enough to visit Japan this spring for the first-time during cherry blossom season. As I was planning this trip and simultaneously designing this collection, I knew it just wouldn't be complete without a Cherry Blossom gown. Thanks to K Bella Events, who planned and designed this gorgeous shoot while I was traveling, it all came together as I had envisioned. And when we arrived on set, this dogwood was in full bloom! Maybe not cherry blossoms, but an equally stunning explosion of spring, and a charming little cottage on the grounds of Lavender Marketplace for our Cherry Blossom dress. Delicate pink blossoms are scattered over this A-line silhouette. It has a deep V neckline in front and back, flowing tulle sleeves dripping in petals, and a dramatic flower-strewn train. Shown here in blush and ivory embroidery, this gown can also be made with all ivory flowers. Paired here with a beautiful floral hair comb by Twigs & Honey, and goddess-worthy bridal makeup by Chloe Ho who created such stunning hair and makeup looks for all of our beauties. I love this pop of blue on the eyes! April Ivory Wedding Dress Model in front of Wedding Floral Arrangement Wedding hair and makeup styling Low Back wedding dress by Claire Pettibone April Ivory Wedding Dress with Plunging Back Another bride favorite, the original design of this dress features blush flowers, so now we've added a new Ivory colorway to our popular April gown. This soft mermaid silhouette has a gorgeous low open back tied with a gossamer bow and pretty blossoms along the plunging neckline. And of course, if you're wearing a floral wedding dress, let's add a floral hairpiece! My bridal hair accessory collaboration with Erin Rhyne was inspired by some of my signature colors and embroideries. Erin's work is also infused with the beauty of the natural world, and she uses only the highest quality materials to create her pieces. Her hairpieces range from ethereal floral crowns to delicate hair vines and intricate headpieces, and each piece is carefully handcrafted to perfectly match the bride's vision and style. These exclusive pieces are available at our Los Angeles salon, and our online shop.

This ivory and pale gold dress features my signature illusion back with intricate embroidery details. The sweetheart neckline plunges to show just the right amount of skin, capped sleeves balance the silhouette, and the shape is effortlessly beautiful - what I call a "soft mermaid", we find this shape is so stunning on our brides! A very intricate and detailed gown that somehow remains simple and understated, this one is sure to become a classic, and for those old-school fans, you may see recollections of Orange Blossom, a gown from the early days that I just had to reinvent here with Hana. Most of my brides are married in outdoor settings, and my vision this season is to transform them into the most unforgettable floral goddesses.
