We were then doubly delighted to receive such an awesome testimonial from Nicola about finding us and her dream dress.. Thanks so much to Nicola
“Once we’d decided on having a Vegas wedding, I knew I had to have something special for my dress. I’m a huge fan of glitter and thought a glitzy old style Vegas glam dress would be perfect. I had a look online at dress styles and through Rock n Roll Bride magazine and found a general idea of what I wanted. There were some shops on ebay and other websites that had similar dresses but the glitter looked tacky.
Continued further down….
It was only when I was flicking through an issue of Rock n Roll Bride that I came across The Couture Company and as soon as I looked at the pictures, I knew it was the place to make my dress, and it wasn’t far for me to travel which was a bonus. My only worry was that there wouldn’t be enough time to get it done.
There was no need for me to worry. I went to my first appointment, pictures in hand, and explained the dress. Jo was fantastic at telling me what would suit my figure and how best to do it all…and it could be completed before we flew to Vegas!
I was so excited for each appointment, and when I saw the fabric for it, it was perfect and such amazing quality. I was expecting to leave a trail of glitter behind me and for the dress to be bare at the end of the day but I didn’t lose a single piece. I loved going to the appointments and standing in front of the huge mirror and seeing it all come together.
On the day, I had so many compliments from strangers about the dress. How glamorous I looked, how it was a film star dress and I truly felt fantastic the entire day.
After all the photos were taken, we walked down the strip in our outfits and bought a 30 inch pizza and carried it all the way back to the hotel. People were cheering and taking pictures of us along the way. Was absolutely our dream wedding day and the dress was definitely the star. Thank you so much Jo for all your hard work!” Nicola D
