Claire Pettibone’s wedding gowns always make us feel as if we’ve stepped into a dream. Her Viola gown, from the Windsor Rose China collection, is no exception. The embroidered tulle overlay features delicate lace flowers atop a platinum silk skirt with a mermaid silhouette. The super elegant Guiper lace trims and sheer back would make any one of us feel like a fairy princess.
For the bride who seeks refinement and structure, Charlie Brear brings us a bias cut slipper satin sheath gown with a V-neck and fitted bodice featuring simple, satin buttons. The low, sultry back and short satin train add a little spice to the situation while your styling options are endless because of its structured simplicity. Consider adding a bold necklace or lace jacket to this slim-fitting gown.
Go Grecian with this brushed silk charmeuse column gown. The intricately beaded illusion neckline and delicate cap sleeves give way to a romantic low back and small, elegant train. The smooth, understated skirt is endlessly elegant.
Kate Middleton is as timeless as the lace-sleeve trend she kick-started at her 2011 royal wedding to Prince William. Designer Claire La Faye has received the memo and so much more. These delicate three-quarter-length Chantilly lace sleeves continue into a drop-waist bodice and a full-flare A-line chiffon skirt with a dreamy 18-inch train. Elegant buttons up the back add the perfect final touch.
