When brides chooses a gown at Hayden Olivia, they are also choosing an experienced team to run ideas by, discuss accessory options with, confide in, cry with…we take this 4-9 month planning/fitting process very serious.  Chelsea is a bride who we will never forget.  She went the custom route…to the hilt and her gown was simply perfect for her.  She was savvy and knew exactly what she wanted.  She entrusted the process of finding, purchasing, customizing and fitting one of the most important gowns of her lifetime and we are so glad that she did.  Here is a note from Chelsea…

“I just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks for all of the help you gave me over the past year with my wedding dress. I received so many compliments on it at the wedding; many guests saying it was the most beautiful dress they had ever seen.  I want brides out there looking for a dress to know how amazing you & your team are. Thank you for truly making this experience amazing for me.  Here are some photos I received from my photographer, Brooke Images, of me in the dress at the wedding. The dress is just stunning!”

-Chelsea Brack Lawrence

After searching high and low for bridal jewelry that was the “good sparkle” and great quality we were a bit disappointed.  Come on…we wanted sparkle that would compliment the ring!  We were beyond excited to meet Lindsie of Haute Bride.  Ladies, these jewels are the closest thing to the real thing that you will find.  We are anticipating our trunk show August 15-18 where you can view the entire collection.  Earrings, bracelets, necklaces, belts and hair pieces will be available to try one and purchase. Here is a peek at how gorgeous her pieces truly are!

Top 5 to Look for in a Dress Shop

Completed your research online and browsed through Pinterest for hours?  Sorted through a big stack of bridal magazines?  It’s time to make appointments and get shopping.  If you are close to a mid size city, you will most likely  have shop/boutique options.  Here are a few things that we think are important in a Dress Shop, these make Hayden Olivia unique and we think you will appreciate them as well.

1.  Full Service

Hayden Olivia offers a full range of services for the bride at a specific range of prices.  We take you from initial ideas all the way through the final alteration process.

2.  Brides Choose

When you walk in, expect to see gowns out in the open.  A consultant will take the lead and walk you through the gowns in which the bride chooses which styles to try on.  We carry specific styles (like vintage or glam or lace), perfect for a bride who already has a style in mind.

3.  Accessories Galore

In addition to gorgeous gowns, we have all the other accessories a bride will need, like shoes, veils, jewelry and even undergarments.

4.  Couture Shop

What does couture mean?  Our definition is this:  Handmade, quality fabrics (100% laces and silks) and we like to add made in the USA!  Many of our designers produce gowns right here in the US.  Ladies, they feel amazing on because they are top quality and lets be honest, if your going to spend on a dress, it might as well be the best quality you can find.

5.  By Appointment

This means we focus on the ultimate gown experience and want to exceed your expectations.  By appointment allows for us to make sure we have a dressing room and consultant available for you.  Some days we can accommodate a same day request however most appointments book out 1-2 weeks in advance.  While searching for  the shops you plan to visit, make it a priority to schedule appointments so you receive the best experience possible.
