California Dreamin’ with Claire Pettibone Romantique

October 18

Bohemian nonchalance. Ocean mist sparkle. Lavish floral lace. Relaxed glamour. Spanish splendor + classic Hollywood style. Palm trees line the sun filled shoreline. 

We were taken away by Claire Pettibone's newest Romantique collection, California Dreamin', when we first saw them in April while at New York market, and have been dreaming of them ever since. Those are just a few of the ideas that inspired the collection, and we loved how we saw the story and heart of it all unfold after seeing each dress. Pure, effortless California vibes infused with a balance of simplicity and stunning detail such as lavish floral lace, elaborate ebroidery, and who can forget, the signature Claire Pettibone back, truly make this collection all about approachable opulence. It had us falling in love with boho chic all over again, and we can't wait for our brides to see the gowns for this weekend's trunk show! Scroll a little to see a few of our favorites. If Romantique dresses are sprinkled all over your Pinterest boards, make sure to give us a ring to get your appointment scheduled before these beauties head off to their next trunk show. A little surprise that we just found out about-we get to keep them for a little longer than originally planned so they will be in the shop through October 29th! We can't wait to meet you all this weekend!

The Details:
The Time & Date: October 21st-29th (Surprise! Our trunk show has been extended!) 
The Dresses: We will have the California Dreamin' collection as well as favorites from past collections, Bohemian Rhapsody & Into the Sunset!
The Good Stuff: We will have our stylist from Claire Pettibone, Wendy, in the shop October 21st-22nd to help our brides find their bridal style.

Going Gold

September 29

Styling photoshoots is a pretty fun part of our jobs. We collaborate with venues, designers and wedding planners from our area whenever they are planning a styled shoot, and we have such a great time showing our most unique and photo worthy gowns in a variety of settings! This shoot, though? It was extra special, and it was an absolute honor to be included in it.

Shelbie of Five Star Portraits approached us about her Going Gold shoot to raise awareness for childhood cancer. She began photographing children with cancer a few years ago when a friend's child was diagnosed and found out through research that the National Cancer Institute only spends 4% of its budget on researching childhood cancer. Shelbie then decided to broaden her efforts this year and undertake a styled shoot to bring even more awareness to childhood cancer which is represented by gold. Once she told us that little detail, we knew we had what she was looking for in our gold sequin bridesmaid dresses. We also loved how this shoot included high school seniors who wanted to contribute to this wonderful cause, and might we add how much they completely rocked their ensembles?! We could not be more proud or thankful to be included so thank you, Shelbie.

Scroll a little ways to see the beautiful shots, and then head over to Shelbie's blog to read her own take on the shoot, as well as to see her beautiful images of these sweet, sweet kids. You can also do a little research on childhood cancer here to see what is happening and how you can help! 


BHB Real Wedding: Melissa & David

September 15

We all love gazing at the thousands of pictures and pieces of inspiration on Style Me Pretty on a regular basis (who doesn't?) so it warms our hearts to see features of our own #BHBrides from time to time! This could not have been more true for Melissa & David's big day that was featured on SMP just last week. The love they have for each other is visible, and we can only imagine how sweet and meaningful that made their wedding day! Melissa was radiating bridal beauty in her fitted lace Ellis gown. The accessories she selected complimented the gown just perfectly, making her bridal look classically swoon worthy. 

Melissa & David- Congratulations on the start of a wonderful life together; we wish you all the happiness in the world. Thank you for allowing us to be a small part of this special time in your life! 

Scroll down to see some of our favorite images of their big day from Dana Fernandez Photography and then head to Style Me Pretty to see even more! Cheers!

BHB Real Wedding: Sarah & Austin

August 18

Sarah & Austin's May wedding was a beautiful rustic fete with the most perfect soft details & colors, and it had us swooning at the first picture! Their big day was held at the The Carriage House in Conroe which made for a beautiful backdrop, full of natural light. Sarah was a bridal beauty in her fitted lace Enzoani gown that featured an unique racerback design. Sarah, thank you for making us a part of your big day. We hope you enjoyed the search for your gown as much as we did, and we wish you and Austin all of the happiness in the world! Cheers!
