A Look into Bridal Designer Hayley Paige

A Look into Bridal Designer Hayley Paige

Bridal mogul Hayley Paige is renowned for the sparkling, lavish, and colorful dresses she designs. She’s made quite the splash in the bridal world, creating a community of brides unlike any other before her.

Hayley Paige grew up in California and was a gymnast throughout most of her childhood. She learned crochet when she was about four years old, but didn’t start to design or make her own dresses until around high school. Paige spent a lot of time reading bridal magazines and was absolutely fascinated by the emotion and authenticity behind the dresses she read in those magazines. She designed both of her prom dresses on her own, and both were, of course, white. This was the beginning of something entirely new for Hayley Paige. It was the beginning of her enormous impact on the bridal industry.

Paige attended Cornell University and double majored in both pre-med as well as Fiber Science and Apparel Design. Up until college, Paige always thought being a bridal designer was just a dream she would never really achieve, and instead imagined going into medicine. Just before her senior year, Paige interned at Elle magazine, and that was when she began to fall in love with design. It was at this point that she started to believe in herself. Now that she’d had a taste of the world she wanted, she could really have it.

After an immense amount of determination on Paige’s part, JLM Couture finally took a chance on 25-year-old Hayley Paige. The beginning of Paige’s bridal line was barely funded, with two pattern makers and two sewers apart from Hayley herself. The original Hayley Paige line launched in 2011, alongside the Blush by Hayley Paige collection (which is very similar to the Hayley Paige, just at a lower price point).

Today, Hayley Paige creates over ten collections every year, with approximately fifteen to twenty dresses per line. Each of Paige’s dresses are known for their genuine uniqueness. They’re sensual, yet elegant. Simple, yet fabulous. Classic, yet modern. The Hayley Paige Red Carpet collection is the most unique of all, composed of one-of-a-kind, off-the-wall pieces. Paige strives, in all her works, to create dresses she’s never seen before, using flowers, lace, stripes, and exposed backs to achieve this.

Paige’s dresses have been seen on many red carpets before, including the CMAs, VMAs, and CMTs; Paige’s works have been worn by celebrities such as Carrie Underwood, Olivia Wilde, and Chrissy Teigen. Kelsea Ballerini, a country artist, was also recently seen on the James Corden show wearing a custom blazer designed by Hayley Paige.

Hayley Paige collections are currently available in twenty six countries. Her dresses can be found in extravagant bridal publications such as The Knot, Martha Stewart Weddings, and Brides, as well as popular television shows such as Say Yes to the Dress and Hayley’s own digital series Hayley Ever After.

Depending on the dress, Hayley Paige gowns range from approximately $3,000 to $8,000. Paige’s extravagance and reputation allows brides to be their truly authentic selves on their special day. Paige has designed a dress for every girl’s taste: flowers, lace, tulle, sensuous, modest. It’s all there. Every bride deserves to be a princess or a queen on their special day, and Hayley Paige brides are undoubtedly the happiest.
