Hayley Paige Chandon takes The Society Room in Hartford
The White Dress by the shore bride Melissa looked like royalty in her Hayley Paige Chandon gown for her October wedding at The Society Room in Hartford.
Melissa selected Chandon in the Moet champagne color and it was the perfect compliment to her skin tone and the aesthetic of The Society Room.
Melissa wanted a veil to accent the unique color of her gown, so our in-house seamstress made her a custom veil in the same color tulle. Melissa’s Haute Bride earrings were the perfect shade of gold to accentuate the warmth of her gown.
You were a show-stopper Melissa! Thank you for allowing us to be part of your special day!

Royal Wedding Dress Prediction
The entire wedding world is holding their breath to see what Meghan Markle will wear for her May 19th nuptials to Prince Harry. I wanted to weight in on my my Royal Wedding Dress Prediction.
Of course…being in the business that I am, I adore weddings. But, royal weddings are a whole other level of obsession. I mean, what is more romantic than a princess getting married…and when it is an American becoming a princess?! Well, I can hardly contain myself! We are thrilled to be hosting a Royal Wedding Viewing Party on Saturday, May 19th in celebration of the event. All American eyes will be on the newly crowned princess and what she will be wearing. The designer, as is standard, is being kept secret, as are most of the wedding details.
As Meghan’s aesthetic is very clean and modern, my prediction is that she will wear a clean gown with no lace. The fabric will be structured and have a sheen – I think a beautiful mikado would be gorgeous! As she will getting married in the church, her arms will need to be covered. My hope is that she will show off her gorgeous décolletage and cover her arms with a clean close fitting sleeve. And of course, she will have a long beautiful train! I do think that she will wear a traditional long veil and my hope is that it will have a touch of lace on it. She will wear some sort of tiara, as is customary. It is rumored that she will wear one from Diana’s collection.
It is unknown if she will have any attendants beyond the sweet little children (Price George, Princess Charlotte, and the daughter of her stylist Jessica Mulroney will serve as flower girls and paiges). There is nothing more darling that the little children dressed in shades of white preceding the bride down the aisle!

April 19th can’t come soon enough! We simply cannot wait to see the gown that Meghan Markle chooses. It is sure to be a show-stopper and one that will set trends in bridal for years to come!
