Dress Theory: "Esther" by Hayley Paige

Esther by Hayley Paige is without a doubt one of our favorite gowns available from the Hayley Paige line. We love the sweet and subtle pinstripes, the flowy organza, and the beautiful neckline. It is no wonder that this gown has quickly become a favorite in our Alabama bridal boutique.

One of the things we love most about this gown is that it really doesn't have to have any accessories to be perfect. However, if you absolutely adore big bows we think a large raw silk sash pairs well with the gown. To complete the look, we suggest adding a veil with sheen organza trimming from Haute Bride and a pair of chandelier earrings.

At the reception, shed the veil (and bow if you added one) and put on a large statement necklace like the one below from Haute Bride. We love the idea of adding a pop of color, which is why we love sampling this option with blush stones. We think adding blush on at the reception is the perfect way to create a little color interest without steering too far away from the bridal white.

Our Huntsville Bridal Shop Owner, Morgan Bolen, shared why she loves the Esther gown.

The Esther gown is one of my favorite ball gowns in the store. I love the way the skirt flows and how the pinstripe detailing in the fabric is understated but so beautiful! Esther has that fairytale factor that makes me want to try it on and twirl around like a little girl!
