I don’t pay much attention to trends. Although one movement I do fully support is the shift towards individuality in weddings. Which is why I like the lovely Claire Pettibone collection. Her gowns offer brides an alternative to the strapless ball gown. It really warms my heart to see more and more brides confident in their personal style, and resisting the pressure to fit into a particular “bridal” mold.
Antique lace, illusion backs and floral embellishments… these are all things that stir my soul, but really, it’s not about a sleeve or a sash. Does this gown stir your soul and make you feel a bit overwhelmed (in a really good way)? Do you feel beautiful and so ready to meet your partner at the end of that aisle?
This season is about a dream-like goddess walking through rose petals (I guess it’s no secret I’m an unabashed romantic!).
