Brides We LOVE!! ...Anh-Chi Nguyen

Wedding Date: June 27, 2008
Location: Fairmont Hotel San Jose
Gown: Carolina Herrera
Experience with Haute Bride in her own words... I had my tiara custom designed by Haute Bride, and I can't emphasize enough how stunningly beautiful it is!!! The extra pearls added, perfectly matched my necklace which my father had given to me as a present years earlier. I felt like true royalty from head to toe, and the tiara was the perfect finishing touch. The customer service at Haute Bride was amazing, as the ladies were friendly, helpful, and enthusiastic from beginning to end. Although many brides these days forego accessories such as tiaras, I didn't regret my decision at all. Haute Bride allows you to look elegant and classy, rather than over the top dressy. Thank you so much to the team at Haute Bride...I'll definitely recommend you to all the brides I know!!!

Thanks Anh-Chi! Your wedding photos are truly amazing. We are so honored to have had the pleasure of working with you!

Brides We LOVE!! ... Jenn Jordan-Klauer ...

Another one of our favorite summer Haute Brides! Jenn Jordan and Rich Klauer were married at Peju Winery in Napa Valley this summer. Jenn wore a custom B628 bracelet with ivory pearls and golden shadow crystals to match the deep champagne color of her gown. Accented in her hair was a rhinestone brooch/comb, accented with a fresh flower. What a beautiful bride, and a beautiful wedding!

Haute Bride Accessories Sale UPDATE!!

The EBAY sale has currently ended... we found it was a little too much work on our end to keep track of the EBAY sales. Instead, we created a page dedicated specifically to our accesories sample sale. We'll be updating daily through the month, so please check back for additional styles. We have attached a PayPal shopping cart to the sample items to make it easier for you to check out. You may also call us at our San Francisco salon to place an order, or for item inquiry. Thank you!!!

NYC Bridal Market

We are finally back and settled from NY market. We had such an fabulous time! We met so many talented designers within our industry, and the overall vibe of this market was truly amazing! Market was hosted by Wedding Channel and held at the InterContinental Barclay hotel. They reserve different floors of the hotel, take the furniture out of the suite, and designers are able to turn the suite into a mini boutique! It's really fun to get creative and give the room a little mini-makeover! It was nice to be back in NY! (We missed last year as Lindsie took the year off to give birth to her twin boys!) Hope you enjoy the photos!

Above from left to right: peek of our "mini Haute Bride boutique"! We had an absolute blast setting up... all the way into the wee hours of the morning. Always fun over a couple bottles of wine. ;)... A Golden Shadow beaded champagne necklace from the UNBRIDALED book by Swarovski. So fun to see this beautiful piece in person!...Our necklace that we created for the display. It surely was a work of art! And next to it is the beautiful cake display that Swarovski had all of their designers create a piece to display. It was on display in the Manhattan Suite. The gown next to the cake is the most amazing beaded Monique Lhilliuer dress we've ever seen!!!

Below: Lindsie snuggling with a furry friend outside Tavern on the Green- wanted to take him home!

Meghan with our favorite gown designer, Valena Valentina. Can't wait for you all to see her new collection available at Haute Bride's Flagship salon in San Francisco.

And last but most certainly NOT least, our Ultra Chic designer and friend, Matthew Christopher, stealing the show as always! ;)

Our new friends from The Bride Room in Nashville; what a beautiful salon!! Thanks Martha Stewart, for the fun party! We had a blast!!!
