Glitzy Additions

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.

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 […]

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.

A message from Jenna… “I wore the Portia on 9/22/12 when I married my love.  I have to share a story with you first.  In July of 2011, my now husband and I were in Charleston, SC while I was finishing up training for my new job with Walgreens.  We parked the car so he […]

A message from Jenna…

“I wore the Portia on 9/22/12 when I married my love.  I have to share a story with you first.  In July of 2011, my now husband and I were in Charleston, SC while I was finishing up training for my new job with Walgreens.  We parked the car so he could finish a phone call and when I looked to my right, I saw your Charleston store.  I immediately took a photo and sent it to my best friend (who introduced my husband and I and was our MOH).  I told her we would be shopping here for the big day, which I had no idea would come in 2012.

I had totally forgotten about this until the day I chose a Modern Trousseau gown from Hayden Olivia Bridal in Charlotte.  I randomly chose this shop because it was centrally located for my mother (WV), my now sister-in-law (Atlanta), and myself (North Myrtle Beach, SC).  I hadn’t looked at Modern Trousseau gowns, I actually was not a fan when they pulled Portia from the rack and insisted I try it on.  It was gown number 3 and from the moment I put it on, I knew it was the gown I would marry my husband in.  It was so comfortable.  I could wear it everyday!

Thank you for designing my dream gown, and being a part of the fairy tale I’ve always imagined!”

Congratulations Jenna, we loved working with you!

We are so thrilled to share that some of the exact gowns that were just launched at Bridal Market in NYC this past weekend have already hit our gown gallery.  Our designers are so great that they allowed us to pre order so we would be one of the first stores to have these gowns available.  They are new, stunning and ready for you to slip into.  We are often asked, do I need an appointment?  We do ask that you make an appointment so we can make sure we have a dressing room available for you as well as a helpful consultant to answer your questions and provide you with an unforgettable gown shopping experience.  Here is to Bridal Market 2013 and gorgeous gowns that have already arrived- Cheers!
