Romantique by Claire Pettibone at The Dress TheorySo if having a high-caliber bridal gown that’s distinctly you is a must, you won’t want to miss the bridal trunk show in Seattle at The Dress Theory featuring our recently debuted California Dreamin’ gowns and other bestsellers in the Romantique collection.


The California Dreamin’ gowns are a boho bride’s delight. This ethereal group of gowns includes flowing silhouettes, feminine off-the-shoulder sleeves, delicate embroidered lace, and stunning signature backs, the perfect fit for the bride who prefers things like braids to formal updos or a VW bus to a limo.

Romantique by Claire Pettibone at The Dress TheoryWhen asked about the Romantique collection, Claire said, “Romantique has a relaxed elegance so that a bride can really make it her own. I love that our brides don’t fit into a ‘type’ and that my collection seems to attract the coolest, anti-zilla, girls-you-would-totally-be-friends-with.”


From the graceful Bel Air gown, with a lavish dose of sparkle and an excess of elaborate embroidery, to the intricate Dixie gown, mixing Victorian sensibility with a modern touch, the collection offers something for every bride looking for a dress that highlights her unique love story.


When asked what their favorite wedding dress in the Romantique collection is, The Dress Theory office manager, Kaitlyn Barinaga said, “The Dress Theory Seattle brides would probably answer with Cheyenne. This dress encompasses every quality our Claire Pettibone brides are looking for. From the lace, fit, and detailed back, it fulfills each bride's need for sexy, yet it’s a grandma-will-approve and husband-will-cry type of dress. And each bride has the ability to tailor this dress to their own personal style. That is why we love this gown!”

When asked why they decided to carry the Romantique collection in their store, mother and daughter co-owners Starla Flake and Melanie Erpenbeck said, “We put so much thought, time, and heart into our curated collection of gowns and try to have something for every bride’s style. About a year ago, we wanted to enhance our selection for the boho chic bride that was looking for something unlike every lace wedding gown out there… When we began our search and came upon Claire Pettibone’s Romantique collection, we knew we had found it, thanks to her incredibly creative style and the reputation behind her exclusive collections. It was a perfect fit for our shop and has reached a bride that previously would have had to travel to find her dream gown.”

In a town in England linked to the legend of Robin Hood, you’ll find James Bride, a family-run bridal salon established in 1860 that’s brimming with vintage flair and some of the best bridal offerings around, Claire Pettibone wedding dresses being part of the crème de la crème of course. 

If you’re a bride located in or around Nottinghamshire county who’s yearning for a truly authentic look for your big day, you’ll definitely want to attend the bridal trunk show in Nottingham at James Bride October 14th and 15th.

Although the store carries both of our collections, the bridal trunk show will feature our recently debuted California Dreamin’ Romantique collection.

Ranging from the Laguna Gown with stunning crochet cut-out cotton Guipure lace and sexy side-slits to the La Cienega gown, which marries Spanish splendor with classic Hollywood style, this boho bridal collection includes a delightful mix of flowing silhouettes, feminine off-the-shoulder sleeves, delicate embroidered lace, and signature stunning backs, making for understated yet highly stylish gowns.

Enamored with the collection, James Bride owner Pam Hope said, “The new 2017 Romantique collection goes beyond all expectations with amazing laces and delicate beading to give you the dress of your dreams.”  

Although the Romantique collection appeals to many brides seeking a bohemian look, the collection was originally created for brides who adore Claire Pettibone wedding dresses but don’t quite have a couture budget. 

In addition to complimentary drinks and nibbles, you’ll receive 10% off your purchase during the trunk show.

We hope you don’t miss some of the best bridal in Nottingham, and what’s sure to be a spectacular time.

We have fans far and wide, but in the United Kingdom we’re pretty certain that the staff at Blackburn Bridal in London are our most devout. And while the fact that they’re our top stockists in the UK certainly points to major fandom, it’s the fact that store owner Russell Blackburn will respond with “Claire Pettibone” without hesitation when asked who his favorite bridal designer is that has us crystal clear on the matter.

With a store as zealous about our brand as Blackburn Bridal, it’s not surprising that they’ll be hosting not one but two bridal trunk shows in London featuring each of our collections.

The bridal trunk show for the recently debuted California Dreamin’ Romantique collection will be held on September 30th through October 2nd.

From the Coachella gown, evoking infectious grooves and desert reveries, to the Pasadena gown, epitomizing old-world elegance, the collection offers a bevy of beguiling dresses for the boho bride. 

The bridal trunk show for the Gilded Age Couture collection will be held on October 7th through the 9th.

From the rose silk velvet inlaid details on our Lillian wedding gown, harkening back to a time of exquisite artistry, to the Morgan gown, teeming with dazzling antique gold embroidery, the collection offers ethereal wedding dresses that allude to a dream world where beauty reigns. 

When asked about the collections, Russell, a bridal style savant who recently appeared in the E4 mini-series “All Hail the Veil” and is often asked by leading bridal magazines such as Brides and You and Your Wedding to contribute his knowledge and expertise, said, “The collections represent a very feminine woman who has a bohemian style and spirit… We have brides visiting us from far and wide looking to become a 'Claire Pettibone' bride.”

On Saturdays and Sundays during the trunk shows the bubbly will flow and a 10% discount will be offered, as one-of-a-kind brides from all around peruse what we dare say are some of the best bridal offerings in London.

Romantique Lace Gown

When the owners of London and Lace Bridal Boutique first waked into our showroom, it took about 5 minutes to realize that this couple was someone we not only could do business with, but could be friends with. Down to earth, funny, and a deep appreciation for our brand, had us smitten! We know that not only South Carolina brides from Greenville to Charleston, along with girls from cities across the southeast including, Charlotte, Asheville, Savannah, Knoxville, Birmingham, Daytona, and New Orleans, will be well served to make the trip to this charming spot! That is if caring, genuine service and a relaxed heart-felt experience are what you are looking for when shopping for your wedding dress.

Over the years, we have come to truly appreciate the relationships that are formed between our company and the salons who represent us. We care deeply for our brides, and we want to make sure that the salons that we sell to, take just as much care of our clients as we would…sort of like leaving your child with a trusted friend! We’re happy to say, that London and Lace share this passion for our clients. In their own words, “We believe in the way things were originally done, with love, care, and the natural materials that our earth has provided.”

We produce all of our Romantique gowns here in Los Angeles with our amazing in-house team. No mass production, or over-seas sweat shops! That doesn’t matter to everyone, but it matters to us, and it matters to London and Lace. They pride themselves on not only presenting beautiful gowns for their brides, but collections that are ethically produced, and we are proud to be carried by this like-minded salon.

Romantique Lace Gown

If you’re the type of bride who prefers turquoise to diamonds, wildflowers to roses, braids to formal up-do’s, and a VW bus to a limo, this collection is for you. “After countless love-letters from brides who adored my collection but didn’t quite have a couture budget, we felt it was time to launch Romantique”, Pettibone explains. “It was really important to me and our company to make this collection with quality and integrity, so we chose to keep the production at home here in Los Angeles. Romantique has a relaxed elegance so that a bride can really make it her own. I love that our brides don’t fit into a “type” and that my collection seems to attract the coolest, anti-zilla, girls-you-would-totally-be-friends-with”, says the designer.

The collection includes a mixture of flowing silhouettes, feminine sleeves, delicate embroidered lace, and signature stunning backs. Graceful and ethereal, Claire Pettibone Romantique features understated, elegant gowns priced from $1,700 to $2,900, perfect for your own love story.
