Sneak Peek: the Claire Pettibone Gothic Angel Collection


Claire Pettibone‘s latest couture bridal collection, Gothic Angel, is inspired by gothic cathedrals and includes details like intricate laces, shimmering beadwork and sequins, and embroidery made to look like stained glass. Claire Pettibone said, “The iconic angel comes to life, not on the feathered wings of an imagined future, but here and now, as a powerful and beautiful woman welcoming us to Heaven on Earth.” From the metallic lace to the use of blues, blacks, and gold colors, the plunging backs, and sleeves resembling angel wings, the details of these gowns are simply magical – and perfect for brides looking for a creative, artistic, extraordinary wedding gown.

This absolutely spectacular collection will be available during an exclusive trunk show at Little White Dress Bridal Shop, March 6th-8th! In addition to the Gothic Angel collection, Claire Pettibone’s under-$3,000 Romantique line will also be available to brides during the trunk show event.

Featured: A Colorful, Creative Shoot with the Reem Acra Eliza Gown

Urban Safari Photography_Glam Circus-83

This past summer Little White Dress participated in a colorful and fun styled shoot at Z Mansion at the Ranch. The concept is so cute:  Inspired by a stylish couple whose first date was at the carnival, some incredible Colorado wedding vendors created an amazing wedding look to show just how fabulous it can be when a couple draws their wedding inspiration from their own story… and that you can do it no matter how odd or crazy it might seem!

Fitting with the glamorous and subtle take on the circus theme, the shoot featured the Reem Acra Eliza gown from Little White Dress. This gown is SO much fun, with incredible volume and texture, yet so elegant and flattering. For how dramatic this gown is, it’s also incredibly light and easy to move in. We love this dress!

The shoot was featured on Every Last Detail, a really wonderful site for wedding inspiration and planning. Check it out!

Below are some of our favorite photos from the shoot, all by Urban Safari Photography. (Including the cutest pups ever!) Don’t miss the end of the post for a list of all the awesome vendors involved. Enjoy!

Oscars Fashion Recap!

We may be a bit biased (given that we’re in the business of beautiful gowns here at Little White Dress Bridal Shop!), but the red carpet is always our favorite part of the Oscars. This year we loved seeing lots of bridal fashion inspiration, and of course we loved seeing several Little White Dress designers represented on the red carpet. Our favorites are right here!


Marchesa 2015 Oscars

Rita Ora, Karolina Kurkova, and Georgina Chapman (Marchesa designer and wife of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein) all wore dramatic, memorable looks by red carpet staple Marchesa, a designer we are proud to carry at Little White Dress. We adore the fitted silhouettes, dramatic ruffles, and luxe gold details of these three gorgeous gowns, which are so fitting for a glamorous event like the Oscars.

Naeem Khan

Naeem Khan 2015 Oscars

Naeem Khan, another designer whose bridal collection is available exclusively in Colorado at Little White Dress, adorned a bevy of stars at the Oscars. From the intricate beading seen on Solange and Willa Holland, to the ombre draping of Hannah Simone’s gown, we can’t help but fall even more in love with Naeem Khan’s exquisite and elegant designs.

Naeem Khan Julianne Hough bridal

Julianne Hough wore a floral embroidered gown by Naeem Khan. This gown is available in ivory as a bridal gown from Naeem Khan’s Fall 2015 bridal collection, aptly named the Tuscany gown.

RIVINI by Rita Vinieris

Kelly Osbourne Rivini Rita Vinieris Oscars

We were so excited to see Kelly Osbourne in a custom RIVINI by Rita Vinieris gown, especially because her gown is a version of our own RIVINI Martini gown! The Martini gown is a fun and flirty blush gown with a hi-low hem – it’s one of our favorite gowns at Little White Dress! {Photo on the right by From the Hip Photo.}

Jenny Packham

America Ferrera Oscars 2015 Jenny Packham

America Ferrera looked stunning in an ombre green Jenny Packham creation. With Jenny Packham’s signature light, flowing fabrics, and flattering twisted straps, this gown in would make for a romantic bridal gown. Several gowns in our Jenny Packham collection at Little White Dress fit the same feminine and romantic notes.

Reem Acra

Nina Dobrev Reem Acra Oscars

Nina Dobrev’s fiery Reem Acra number had us reminiscing over the latest Reem Acra bridal runway show, where we saw this headline-making bridal crop top strut down the catwalk! It’s so fun to see daring, modern looks on the red carpet AND in bridal fashion!

Bridal Inspiration

Bridal inspiration 2015 Oscars

There was no shortage of bridal fashion inspiration at the Oscars this year. From Julianne Moore in Chanel, to Marion Cotillard in Dior, Zoe Saldana in Versace, and Karolina Kurkova in that gorgeous Marchesa gown, there were so many beautiful bridal moments on the red carpet. We would love to see fashion-forward brides inspired by these four gowns!

LWD Designers at New York Fashion Week

Designers Reem Acra, Jenny Packham, Naeem Khan, and Marchesa – all available in Colorado only at Little White Dress Bridal Shop – showed their latest ready-to-wear collections this past week at New York Fashion Week to rave reviews. We at Little White Dress watched the coverage from here in Denver, in anticipation of April’s New York Bridal Fashion Week, where we see the new bridal collections firsthand. We love keeping an eye on all the amazing things our designers are doing, and Fashion Week is always an exciting preview of the styles, trends, and inspirations that will likely make their way into the bridal collections in a couple months.

Here’s the scoop on these four fabulous fashion shows and a straight-from-the-runway peek at what we’re loving most from these new designer collections!

Reem Acra

Reem Acra – born in Lebanon and now based in New York, and a favorite designer of celebrities – was inspired for the Fall 2015 season by another creative, successful, stylish woman: Stevie Nicks. The lush textures and bohemian styling of the collection results in absolutely exquisite details, and an almost Renaissance-meets-Game of Thrones romance. We’re bound to see several of these gorgeous gowns on the red carpet this year! And we’re hoping to see hints of these rich textures and boho-chic details in Reem Acra’s upcoming bridal collection.

Jenny Packham

After a few seasons of light, ultra-feminine looks, Jenny Packham turned to the darker side for her Fall 2015 Ready to Wear collection – and we absolutely love it. Her signature beading, classic silhouettes, and Kate Middleton-approved ladylike looks haven’t gone anywhere, thankfully – it’s just a slightly edgier evolution for the designer, which was inspired by a trip to the Prado museum in Madrid. Her dramatic use of silver could mean a move toward this striking metallic in bridal wear, in place of the rose gold that has reigned in bridal style this past year. (How fun would that gown on the right be for a glamorous bride?!)

Naeem Khan

Naeem Khan‘s shows are always the talk of the runways, and this season was no exception – starting before a model even walked down the runway. (The show’s backdrop was a graffiti mural that the artist was finishing as audience members found their seats.) The Indian designer’s celebrity-approved looks – just watch the Oscar’s red carpet this Sunday! – are edgy, yet feminine, and with such luxurious details. Just take a look at the ombre effect of the ball gown on the right, created with hundreds of layers of silk. The same powerful aesthetic is sure to be visible in Naeem Khan’s new bridal collection: he designs his bridal gowns each with a specific jet-set destination wedding location in mind.

Design duo extraordinaire Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig of Marchesa created an opulent fashion spectacle at their Fashion Week show, set in the elegant St. Regis Hotel. So opulent, in fact, that it was inspired by the idea of an Opium Dream. Anna Wintour and Blake Lively were spotted front row, mesmerized by the 3-D poppies, wisps of cloudy-colored fabric, and 1920s silk fringe that floated down the runway. We hope the same dream-like effect is infused in Marchesa’s upcoming bridal collection!

LWD Bride: Kristin’s Sophisticated Wedding at the Sanctuary


Spectacular views, elegant details, and a cute-as-can-be couple. Kristin and Dean’s fall wedding at the Sanctuary Golf Course really has it all! Our favorite part? Kristin’s gorgeous lace Liancarlo gown from Little White Dress, of course! This drop-waist strapless ball gown with richly detailed lace has both a flattering fitted look and the romance of a classic full skirt. This wedding is the perfect example of how sophisticated style can blend so well with the natural beauty that Colorado is so famous for!

Congratulations to Kristin and Dean, and many thanks to Brinton Studios for sharing their gorgeous wedding with us!
