about the brand
HAUTE BRIDE ™
the story + the design + the process
While planning my own weeding in 2001, I was in search for a very specific look that I hadn't been able to find anywhere, so I set out to make it! After my wedding, I started selling my custom-designed hairpins on EBay and became totally overwhelmed by the response and sales! It was during the dot com phase- I was working as an HR manager in the tech industry and 75% of my company’s workforce was reduced. I took a few months off and started creating more and more accessories for EBay, local boutiques and friends. In 2004, I attended my first bridal market in Chicago and New York with our Haute Bride line. Our designs are now available in over 70 retail bridal salons worldwide and can be seen regularly gracing the cover and inside pages of the top bridal magazines, including Brides, Martha Stewart Weddings, Bridal Guide, Get Married Magazine, Wedding Belles and more. I opened a full service flagship Haute Bride salon in 2005, and sold it in 2019, and now focus on jewelry design and mom life!
For over 16 years, we have worked directly with our Swarovski as our only crystal vendor, (and please note we are now only allowed to use the term "Austrian Crystal"). They still continue to be one of the finest of materials in our designs. We have a wonderful team of talented artists creating accessories, veils and sashes. Our designs are fashion forward and not just for brides. We design with the intention of having our customer wear their accessories not just for their wedding day, but for any special occasion. All of our designs have full customization opportunities and have a life time warranty.
You can find HAUTE BRIDE accessories, veils and sashes online or at over 75 retail bridal boutiques worldwide.
A huge THANK YOU to all of the amazing brides and retailers I have been able to work with since 2005! I am so very grateful for this opportunity based on my passion for art and design that I have encountered! What a dream to be able to do something that you love and make others happy!
STAY TUNED! We are in the proceess of opening up a Flagship Accessories Boutique in Orange County, California. Coming soon in January 2023 (by appointment only!)
