California native Hayley Paige got her start in fashion by interning for Nina Garcia at Elle magazine while attending Cornell University, where she designed an award-wining 10-piece bridal collection her graduating year (talk about an underachiever). She went on to work for Jill Stuart and her ready-to-wear collection, eventually becoming a designer for the Melissa Sweet bridal and bridesmaid collections as well as the head designer for the Marchesa Eterna bridal collection at Priscilla of Boston. The young designer is quickly climbing the wedding dress ranks with her designs, which combine romantic and bold embellishments with classic designs.

Woman Getting Married Says:
I like the surprise elements of a Hayley Paige wedding dress. Whether it’s the chunky beads she decides to adorn the top with or the tiers of chiffon she’ll put on an otherwise simple dress, she is definitely going to keep getting better and better with each collection. Her wedding dress designs are fresh and fun while remaining simple in all the right places, and her prices are still on the lower end of the spectrum when it comes to top wedding dress designers. Whether you’re looking for an A-line gown, fit-and-flare or a ballgown, Hayley Paige’s designs have something for everyone while still remaining unique and timeless.
Below are my favorite dresses from her 2013 and 2014 Bridal Collections.
