Bridal gown designer, Hayley Paige is an expert at all things bridal and fabulous! Even though she’s been busy working on her own wedding this coming July (Swoon! We can’t wait to see her dress!) she sent us her 5 best tips on bridal dress shopping. We hope her expert advice will help you find the dress of your dreams! Enjoy the Hayley Paige 2015 Fall Collection.
Tip #1: Avoid shopping with too many voices or too many strong opinions. I think it’s fun to keep your friends and guests on their toes with regards to your dress.
Tip #2: Try one of each silhouette! You never know what you will end up liking for your big day.
Tip #3: Just go for it. I find more women telling me that they wish they would have gone for something more over-the-top and unique, than regretting a style risk. What’s the worst that can happen? You look back realize you were a little wild and a whole lot of fabulous? Confidence is key!
Tip #4: When in doubt, think about what your groom likes on you. I’ve had appointments where the bride can’t decide between two gowns and usually the minute I tell her to think about which one might make her hubby-to-be a little more weak in the knees, it usually helps with her decision making.
Tip #5: Allow yourself to be pleasantly surprised and try one at least one ball gown and one fitted look. Sometimes we garner up this vision of what we see ourselves in on that special day, but once you become that lovely girl standing in front of a sparkly mirror, all bets are off! I’ve had plenty of brides walk into an appointment thinking about Kate Middleton and walk out of that very appointment mind-blown by Jessica Rabbitt.
