Real Wedding: Paige & Jesse

Tell us about THE dress and what inspired your look.

I was unbelievably nervous for the day I would look for my wedding dress! A girl dreams about this day. When it finally arrives, it’s hard to wrap your mind around it, you almost feel unready. I searched for a month online researching wedding dress shops in NYC. I didn’t want anything that anybody had seen before. I wanted my dress to have that WOW factor every woman wants! I wanted a non traditional gown that had intricate beading, detail, and class. Then I stumbled upon Lovely Bride. The second I clicked onto the website I was in love! I knew that this would be the place I would find my dream dress. I honestly didn’t even look or book an appointment anywhere else. When arriving that warm day in July, I was no longer nervous about being disappointed, I was excited! Anna Campbell is by far my favorite wedding dress designer I have ever come across. Her gowns are so uniquely intricate, classy, beautiful, and timeless. That day the first dress I put on was the dress I walked down the aisle in. The Amity gown by Anna Campbell. It has a beautiful simpleness to it in a way I always wanted. It had the WOW factor without being too busy. The back glistened like a chandelier and the silk was so feminine. Silk is the most beautiful fabric and I’ve always adored it.  I have always been a person in love with the past and woman from recent times, so elegant and classic. I knew I needed something that expressed that part of me and who I am. This dress made me feel like I took a step back in time, and for that I am forever grateful<3

What were the most important details to pulling off your dream wedding?

The most important details to me were in the little things. The things most people don’t initially think about but everyone notices and remembers that day. I knew I wanted gold sugar on the blush champagne glasses, white silk gloves for the bridesmaids to match my dress, greek vines for their hair to balance my crown, birds nests to rest the rings, love birds in a vintage white cage as you entered the ceremony, turning vintage bird cages into hanging lanterns, vintage mr and mrs forks, elegant gold table number stands, all the little details that seem so minor in the grand scheme of things I have always had a passion for. It’s the little things.

What was the most memorable moment?

The most memorable moment for me was 100 percent walking down the aisle. I have never felt so much joy and nervousness in my entire life. When my dad took my hand I officially had already lost it. I cried the whole way down the aisle and I didn’t have a care in the world. I always thought I would be worried about everyone around me and yet I didn’t even notice they were there. Seeing my husband, tears rolling down his face, was the only face I remember. When we said our vows I swear time stopped. You know those corny scenes in movies where everyone in the room disappears and they are the only two there. That is honestly how it felt. The greatest man I know was looking back at me just the way I always dreamed. So for me yes, the most cliche moment talked about is the most memorable, because it was the most incredible and important memory a woman can have. The man you love more than anyone pledging himself and his life to you forever.

If you could give future brides any advice, what would it be?

Don’t regret! So many brides over and over again have said to me “If i could go back I would have done…” Do not let that person be you! There are so many things in life we regret and don’t like to look back on. This day should not have to be one of them. Put everything you have into your wedding, take in every single moment, do not let others sway your decisions on ideas, make sure you take time to love yourself and destress yourself throughout the process, be kind and patient with your fiancé and your family, make it everything you said you would! On your wedding day take in the fact that this day is actually about you! Everyone you love is there to celebrate you and your husband, that is so amazing to me!  I can honestly sit here and say not from a haughty arrogant heart but from a blessed and humble heart that I do not regret! My husband and I both look back on our wedding day and agree that it was perfect. Were there a couple flaws, oh I’m sure, but what day doesn’t have flaws? Always remember what is most important and make it the greatest day of your life, after all why not?!

Bridal Market Wrap Up

Bridal Market is essentially fashion week for the wedding world…all of the designers flock to New York City with their brand new collections, showing off the latest trends and getting us ready for what will be in stores later this year! All of our Lovely ladies from around the country came to New York to shop and stock up to put the best gowns in our stores, and we’re excited to share a sneak peek with you!

Hayley Paige Bridal Market

It was great to see our favorite designers and their newest creations on display. While it’s always hard to pick favorites, a few trends this season particularly stood out as we get ready to dress up our 2016 brides.

Bring on the Sleeves

It’s always fun to see different silhouettes, and this season was no exception. Long-sleeved gowns made a huge statement at market this season…ranging from lace to silk, sleek & elegant to 70s inspired bells. We totally picture these gowns being worn in a romantic forest ceremony with twinkle lights!

Cream of the Crop Tops

We love love love the two piece look, and our designers do it best! Paired with either a sleek mermaid skirt or a full tulle ballgown skirt, you can’t go wrong! Or get two skirts to rock separate looks for your ceremony and reception! Our ladies in LA particularly love this trend…perfect for a beach soiree.

Flower Power

The prettiest motif there ever was…florals! Maybe because we’re so excited that spring is finally here, or maybe just because these dresses are everything! Whether the flowers show up in a lace pattern, in applique details, or even in a daring print, we think that these dresses are perfect for the girly girls out there.

Pretty in Pastels

For the brides that aren’t just that into white dresses, color is definitely having its moment this season! From pale blues to blushing peaches, these gowns had just enough of a punch to set you daring brides apart from the rest.

Meet the Stylist: Hannah at Lovely New York!

If you come to Lovely New York for an appointment, you might be lucky enough to find yourself working with our adorable stylist Hannah! Having just been married herself, she has all of the knowledge and insight into wedding dress shopping. Read on to get to know her better, and to schedule an appointment with Hannah just call 212.924.2050

Meet the Stylist - Hannah at Lovely New YorkTell us a little bit about yourself.

I moved to New York two years ago from Ireland with my then finance now husband, Mike. We had two weddings!! One in New York’s City Hall and one in Ireland. I had worked in fashion buying for six years before I started my career at Lovely. Planning a wedding made me fall in love with all things bridal and I so I am thrilled to have joined the team of Lovelies in New York this January.

What is your favorite dress at Lovely and why? How would you style it?

There are so many A-MAZING dresses it’s hard to pick just one! My current favorite is the Cleo dress from Rue de Seine. It is the epitome of boho style! We have nicknamed her the Stevie dress after Stevie Nicks! If I were to style this dress I would be barefoot and flower crown clad at a sunset ceremony on the beach!

Meet the Stylist - Hannah at Lovely New York

Describe your dream wedding (or tell us a little bit about your own!!!)

Our wedding was honestly like a fairytale (cheesy I know!) We got married in an old Irish Castle called Borris House. It is surrounded by acres of private woodlands and walled private gardens, there is a chapel on site where we had our ceremony and we even had a double rainbow on the day!  We rented the castle for three days and had it all to ourselves which meant we could spend time exploring the grounds and enjoyed a pre wedding BBQ rehearsal. I wish we could do it all over again!

What advice do you give to your brides when searching for a gown?

I have a few tips for brides buying their dress! Firstly, be open to ideas! So often the very thing you think you don’t  like may look and feel fabulous on you! Try on a few different styles at your first appointment and narrow it down from there. You may surprise yourself! 

Secondly, do your initial appointments with one or two trusted friends or family. Sometimes big groups can make it confusing! You can always bring the whole party for your pick up appointment and wow them with your awesome dress! 

Thirdly don’t be afraid to say yes! When you find a dress that feels like you, that fits your theme and venue and makes you feel like a rock star… Um … I think you found it… yay!!!

Tell us about THE dress and what inspired your look.

I wanted to look elegant and funky! Wedding dress shopping was a little difficult for me because I am a bit of a perfectionist, so I had to let go of the idea of THE dress being perfect and just focused on feeling beautiful and being comfortable.
