I knew this day would come, I just didn’t think it would be so soon.

One of my very first Wedding Dress of The Week posts featured a romantic wedding gown by Claire Pettibone.

And here I am again, a few months later, featuring another one of her stunning creations.

I blame this image.

It’s been doing the rounds on Pinterest since the dawn of pinning (or thereabouts).

Try as I might I can’t deny the beauty of this dress and therefore the deep need within me to share it with all of you lovely readers!

So let’s collectively swoon over yet another Claire Pettibone wedding dress with an exquisite back.

This one’s called Orange Blossom and it’s part of her Continuing Collection.

Why I adore Orange Blossom by Claire Pettibone… did you not see the images above?

This beautiful gown is in full bloom with silver flowers of different shapes and sizes embroidered on tulle with an exquisite, illusion tulle back and delicate cap sleeves.

Perfect for… creating a whimsical, ethereal bridal look.

Not so perfect for… bras and Spanx.

Team it with…chic, short haircut or long hair swept over one shoulder and the sheerest of chapel length veils so that the flowers on the back peek through.

Totally and utterly gorgeous.

I might just start a Claire Pettibone fan club. Who’s with me?!
