One Great Dress: Hayley Paige Dori

Let’s be honest, the Dori gown by Hayley Paige is one of the most gorgeous wedding dresses we’ve ever laid eyes on. The lavender color is sublime, and can you believe the beaded bodice was originally designed as a crop top? We’re so glad they combined this layered skirt with an equally stunning bodice. We envision this gown floating down a grand staircase, with a French Castle looming in the background. Pair an unstructured bouquet with this polished gown to add that effortless flair.

One Great Dress – Carol Hannah Whitfield’s “Belmont” In Bali


At the first glance of Carol Hannah’s “Belmont” gown you wouldn’t think destination wedding in an exotic place such as Bali. But this just goes to show, that most dresses can be totally made to fit whatever venue when styled right. A little bit of inspiration goes a long way, and with great attention to detail and staying true to culture and the environment you can make it work. Imagine Belmont in soft white, with a bouquet full of the bright and colorful native flowers of Bali. See yourself walking down a green pathway to stepping stones across a creek bed to stand in front of a high cascading waterfall with your honey at the end. Real flowers intertwined into your hair creating that bohemian style, and your wrists covered in bangles waiting for that special ring to be placed on your left ring finger. (Sigh…) But of course, as long as you feel amazing in Belmont (as I’m sure you will) it will fit any venue and is truly One Great Dress.

Now I can just see you both riding off into the sunset along the beach with Belmont’s silk waving gracefully in the wind behind you. It’s like your honeymoon started the moment you said “I Do.”

Carol Hannah Trunk Show is coming to Lovely DC January 17-19th and you yourself can see if Belmont is right for you! Make your appointment at
