Fashion designer Claire Pettibone is finally discussing what went into creating Nikki Reed’s wedding gown.
According to Pettibone, Nikki Reed “really kept Ian in mind” when designing her gown.
People magazine reports the 26-year-old actress added details she knew her groom would like, including the “low, sexy back.” Pettibone told the magazine the couple would call or text each other during each of her three fittings.
“He was so excited for his bride, and called or texted her during every fitting!” she shared. “She wouldn’t tell him any details, because she wanted him to be surprised on the big day.”
While much of the dress’ design was based on Nikki Reed’s suggestions, Pettibone said it was truly a team effort.
“My design aesthetic was a great fit for the vibe Nikki wanted for her wedding day with Ian: a little boho, romantic and timeless, with a sexy [twist],” she said. “She was so happy with what we had originally decided on, that we really didn’t make any changes at all.”
