Wedding Gowns, Bridal Gowns

I outgrew Hello Kitty when I was seven years old but I guess some girls aren’t too old for this white Japanese cat by Sanrio.

Japanese brides who have the money for kitsch can shell out $4,000 for a ruffly, pink wedding dress adorned with Hello Kitty’s face. And if that’s not enough for the hardcore fan, you can apparently get an entire Hello Kitty
wedding done at the Daiichi Hanyu hotel chain in Japan. Wedding packages cost somewhere in between $8,71-
- 22,275.
Sanrio’s not the only company to offer cartoon-themed weddings for the childlike bride. Last year, Disney launched a line of wedding gowns for women who want to look and feel like their favorite fairy tale princess on
their wedding day. The most expensive Disney Princess wedding gown is a thousand bucks cheaper than the Hello Kitty wedding dress, and I guess that’s because the Disney gowns are a lot less poofy and busy-looking.
Claire Pettibone is well known for her frilly frocks, lacy bridal gowns, and luxury lingerie, making her pieces perfect for feminine, flirty brides. Pettibone looks at a rather unusual source of inspiration for her 2009 bridal collection:
wedding cakes. This season you can expect a lot of beaded floral appliques, ribbon-tie straps, delicate embroidery, and wedding gown styles that will make any blushing bride look sweet and sexy. One of my favorites is Jean, an elaborate sweep-train wedding gown with silver, gold, and ivory embroidery lined with pearl silk. I love
how the deco-beaded insets gives the bride an old-fashioned glam look that’s perfect for formal evening weddings. Mind you, this is just a sneak peak of Pettibone’s new bridal pieces. The dresses from her Spring 2009 collection are fresh off the runway and are not yet available in stores!
