Styling Session – The Statement Bride

There are many types of brides in this world, each with her own style and personality. So, this post is dedicated to the statement bride. She is the bride who knows she is the crown jewel of her big day and is not afraid to step into the spotlight. For this styling session, I wanted something dramatically different from my last blushing romantic look, and this Hayley Page mermaid gown was just the thing.

The back of this gown is stunningly unique top to bottom. just look at those details!

If you wear this gown down the aisle, prepare for audible gasps.  The gentle sparkle of the gown combined with the warm toned underlay really makes the designs pop! Her perfect match is, of course, this Hayley Paige veil with the beautiful scroll work floating behind you down the aisle. One of the fabulous aspects about this veil is that the lay is very streamlined with a bit of flare at the bottom. Not to mention, this design keeps the gown from being over-shadowed while still adding that perfect touch to make the perfect look for the statement bride!

These fabulous little earrings are the perfect compliment to such a statement dress. the shape of the crystals mirror the details of the beading beautifully without taking any attention away from the gown itself.

Accessories are a must for the statement bride, and these classic Sara Gabriel earrings add the perfect touch of sparkle. Silver is a modern and clean metal that lets the stones shine through. These earrings are just the right size and keep the art deco stylized feel of this bridal look cohesive and glamorous.

 

Let me tell you a story about how this is not lace. Shocking, I know. It's actually Hayley Paige's own Marrakesh Beading.

You may have been wondering, what actually is the embellishment on this gown? Is it lace? Perhaps Embroidery? Nope. Instead, this Marrakesh beading is a Hayley Paige original. It adds a beautiful little touch of sparkle with every step without being heavy or chunky. This unique detailing helps the fabric maintain a beautiful body and flow.

I Just love the detail on this bodice! the shape of the neckline is so flattering and the scrolling is beautifully placed.

From top to bottom, this is truly a look for the statement bride. Every line, stitch, and fabric choice was carefully designed to create a truly unforgettable look. Every bride is unique in her own way and has her own dreams for her wedding day. This is your day to stand out from the crowd and bask in the spotlight, own it! In the meantime, keep an eye out for more styling sessions during this summer!

Brooke the intern,
Over and out.
