Hey gals, I am new on here and was searching to see some pics of “real brides” wearing my wedding gown Hayley Paige HP6362 Khalessi and I was so excited to see these posts. The wedding is October 26, 2014. I ordered the gown Sept. 2013 at a trunk show at Wedding Atelier on Madison Ave in NYC. It arrived 3 days ago (6/3/14) and my first fitting is on June 17, 2014! I live in NJ, 15 mins away from NYC so it wasnt a major commute for me. I had trouble at first finding a bridal salon that carried Hayley Paige because Fall 2013 was her first line so I was limited to stores which also explains why there arent many real brides whering Hayley Paige all over the internet yet as their weddings are probably shortly approaching now. First, I had to try it on at Kleinfeld’s to make sure it was “the one”. I wasnt really happy about this because its a little gimmicky here and I wanted them to know I was a serious buyer and not looking to be on tv (you can request not to be.. which i did). Anyways, I only tried 3 dresses on all Hayley Paige and Khaleesi was the first one. I like different and funky styles so Hayley was the best designer for me. I was worried that she would be out of my budget but she wasnt (more on price later). Kleinfelds was great and they didnt have Khaleesi in store so when I booked the appointment I asked that they would make sure they had it and they ordered the sample for me (its free). When I walked out with it on into the main room everyones head turned and all the staff came out. They werent looking at me haha.. all eyes were on the amazing dress. In person it is so much more beautiful than in pics. I was scared the details would look chintzy but in person they are hand sewn onto lace and they are just breathtaking. Also nice is that the large stones are milky in color, not clear which I feel like makes it look much classier. Also the color is ivory not white. It is definetly the kind of dress you dont need many other accessories for and personally I think the hair has to be up to do it justice. It made the hair and accessories decsions very easy to make. I am just doing a simple big bun swept up with earrings and veil.. thats it. Anyways, I knew a trunk show would be coming up so I figured I’d wait it out. Wedding Atelier gave me a great trunk show price cutting about $500 off the dress for purchasing same day and giving me a reduced price on alterations which was great. Now I see that the bridal salon that I sent my bridesmaids to in NJ, Jae Hee Bridal in Englewood, NJ also carries Hayley Paige which couldve saved me on tax, but its nice knowing that Weddding Atelier is extremely kind and professional. At the end of the day I ended paying about $4,000. I think some people love this dress and some people do not favor it. For me it was exactly what I was looking for in every way. I will post pics from the fitting if I can. Some places are weird about that. If you have any questions about the dress please feel free to pm me.

I thought this dress would be the one, but when I tried it on, it was very unflattering on my wide hips. Sorry I didn’t take any pics it was so awful! But a beautiful dress! The fabric is just not very forgiving. I think with the bolero (the top part of the dress is detachable) it was $3700 CAD plus tax or around there.

My first fitting is actually August 12 now. I’m gonna glam myself up When I go of course and I will take a pic. I am wearing a cathedral length single layer veil so that the back detail shows through. I’ll try to get a pic with and without veil on. 

Rasberrymojito:

I agree this dress is not very forgiving. If you’re concerned about your hips or arms I wouldn’t recommend this dress as it draws attention to those areas. Good luck in your search. HP has many amazing dresses!

tinasav:  Perfect! Thanks for sharing with us. I was thinking cathedral length veil too! You were totally right when you said some people love the dress and some people don’t. My mom and sister both hate it, but sorry it’s not their wedding!
