If you’re the type of bride who prefers turquoise to diamonds, wildflowers to roses, braids to updos, and a VW bus to a limo, then we’ve found the bridal collection for you. Designer Claire Pettibone recently debuted her new Romantique collection, and the “graceful, poetic, and bohemian wedding gowns made with love in Los Angeles,” to quote Pettibone, are a boho bride’s dream come true.
Pettibone describes the collection as being, “A little Moroccan villa, a touch English garden; timeless with a vintage vibe.” Take a page from Pettibone’s style book and accessorize with chic gladiator sandals and flowers in your hair (or an adornment from Salem-based Twigs & Honey), and you’re ready to
walk skip down the aisle.
The gowns are priced from $1,500 to $2,800, and will be available beginning in November—just in time for spring and summer weddings.
