Dress Theory: "River" by Blush by Hayley Paige

River by Blush by Hayley Paige is an easy favorite from the Blush Collection. We love the lines on the elongated bodice, the airy tulle skirt, and the horsehair trim that helps create so much drama! It is easy to see why River has been a favorite among brides at both our Huntsville Bridal Shop and Nashville Bridal Shop.

River is offered with or without a gorgeous beaded bolero and we really love pairing the gorgeous gown with the bolero for a bride who loves bling! However, we also absolutely adore pairing the River gown with a gorgeous lace bolero and sash. For the bride who loves lace, this is a great way to incorporate lace into a gown without lace and to still have a great party dress for the reception! To complete the ceremony look, we suggest adding a simplistic veil like Arabia or Natalie from Toni Federici.

At the reception, shed the bolero (whichever one you selected) and tie on a bling belt that will work well with your colors. We absolutely adore the Eden sash by a.b. Ellie with this gown and think it is perfect for a fun night of dancing.

Our Nashville Bridal Shop Owner, Ella Kinsland, shared why she loves the River gown. 

River is the epitome of a WOW gown. It has a stunning fit and has tons of drama in the tulle and horsehair trim skirt. I love pairing this gown with a lace bolero, but also love the gown just as it comes. It has such a sophisticated look and is sure to be a favorite by the fiancé.
