Wedding Dress Wednesday | Claire Pettibone

Our mission at Whisper & Blush is to find the most lust-worthy gowns that stylish brides are “pinning” and “liking” – so the dress this week certainly ticks that box. In fact, we’re pretty sure most brides looking for gowns on Pinterest would have been stopped in their tracks by this image at some point during their dress research…

Stunning! The detail on the back of this gown is a whole other level!

… The beautiful back-detail; the embroidery, the lace appliqué; the gentle use of colour – this dress can come from no other than LA-based designer Claire Pettibone.

Part of the Still Life collection, the Papillon dress,  *referring to the French for butterfly other than the small dog – obviously !*  is a beautiful ivory gown with a sheer back featuring an embroidered garden scene of flowers and butterflies.

Given that most of your guests will spend a good chunk of your ceremony literally watching your back; this dress really knows how to make an impact. And what we love about it, is the front is just as pretty too…

Slim fitting gown with lace appliqués and butterfly detail to shoulder
We think that this gown is perfect for a summer wedding  – for brides looking for a relaxed “garden-party feel” but still definitely want to ‘Wow” (and quite frankly, who doesn’t?!) Teamed with simple make-up and flowers in the hair this is one seriously show-stopping dress!
