It’s all too often we always tell our friends, family, and brides how much we LOVE our job, but there are moments in this job where we truly need to pinch ourselves to make sure it’s not a dream… We are ECSTATIC to share with all of you our most recent pinch worthy moment when we had the chance to interview wedding dress designer extraordinaire and powerhouse of the wedding world, Hayley Paige!
To say we were ecstatic would be a total understatement, but we have no shame AT ALL because after you’ve browsed this feature, you’ll love Hayley Paige as much as we do. Just look at her amazing work! Stunning!!
Can you describe a Hayley Paige Bride?
The Hayley Paige bride is not your basic bride. She takes risks in her life and style, and doesn’t let anyone dull her unique sparkle! The Hayley Paige bride is girly, adventurous and an all-out bombshell!
Do you have a favorite aspect/step of the design process?
The initial step when it comes to design is truly one of my favorite parts! I love seeing my ideas come to life as a sketch and playing into any personality and inspiration I have, whether it is a print from a gown I saw on the red carpet, a ready-to-wear piece a friend wore or music and people that inspire me! Seeing a bride wear a Hayley Paige dress on her wedding day is also such a beautiful moment and really reminds me why I do what I do: for the bride!
What do you think are the most important things a bride should consider when they’re choosing their gown?
A bride-to-be should have true conviction when choosing her wedding dress! No matter the opinions shared by her family or bridal party, the bride should absolutely choose a dress that she is comfortable in and where she feels like the most sparkly, beautiful version of herself.
As the head designer for Hayley Paige, Blush by Hayley Paige, Hayley Paige Occasions, Hayley Paige Red Carpet and La Petite Hayley Paige at JLM Couture, what do you do to relax and escape from your busy schedule?
I love spending time with my husband, Danny, our dog, Winnie, and my friends and family! A good margarita can cure a long day!
Any favorite quotes you live by?
A few…’Hustle and heart will set you apart,’ ‘keep calm and sparkle on’ and ‘shine on you crazy diamond.’ I hope all these quotes instill a sense of authenticity and being true to who you are and not letting anyone bring you down or what you have to offer the world!
