Cute coloured rainbow lace dress for Krissy- Alternative wedding dresses

Is this dress just the cutest most fun dress we have ever made?? I really think it is…I have been waiting to see the photos for a while and boy was it worth the wait. Krissy was just the loveliest bride, right up our street….she absolutely loved what we do and was so excited at every meeting and fitting…. We created  Krissy’s dress in silk organza and appliqued handpainted lace flowers around the waistline and skirt, and finished it off with the brightest rainbow petticoat and buttons 🙂

We are so lucky to have so many amazing and unique brides!

 

 

 

Thanks so so much for this lovely testimonial Krissy  “Thank you so much for the wonderful wedding dress you made me. I had a lot of anxiety around being ‘a bride on display’, and when we were planning the wedding the worst bit was thinking about the dress, as someone with poor self confidence and body image i was terrified, and felt i would never find anything i would be comfortable with. Thank glob we found you. The minute i walked in i was stunned by the dresses on display and sally made me feel so comfortable during the first fitting. Nothing was too much trouble, it felt like a true collaboration. Most importantly I felt comfortable, beautiful and super excited! After that day i had no more worries about how i would look on our big day. I was so excited about each fitting and knew i would always be met with a warm welcome. When we came to collect the dress and i tried it on i couldn’t believe it, i know it would be fabulous but you exceeded my expectations. You took my dreams and made them a reality. On our wedding day i felt beautiful and confident, and I know that Matt loved the dress too. I got so many compliments and even now over a year later people still talk about the amazing wedding dress I had. I haven’t been able to put it away and still have it hanging up so I can look at it! I would highly recommend Jo and her team of wonderful ladies for anyone, especially if you want something wonderful! Worth every penny. Thanks so much! ”

Mel & Lee and their Mexican fiesta colourful wedding _Alternative wedding dresses

Today on the blog we have the wedding of our gorgeous rockabilly bride Mel and her  boy Lee, Mel was an absolute sweetheart to work with and was full of fun , crazy and kitsch ideas,

We created a design that was fun, comfortable and very Mel, we incorporated beade Swallows and a Mexican sacred heart into her design too..

Huge Thanks to Mel for this lovely testimonial  and for sharing her gorgeous wedding photos with us 🙂

“The whole process of getting a dress from the Couture Company was perfect. The moment I walked into the studio I knew I had made the right decision. Jo was helpful and understanding throughout and every visit made me feel more confident, and each time I saw my dress coming together I got more excited to see the finished result. In the end, it was exactly what I had hoped for, and on the day I felt exactly as I should – like me! All of our guests commented on how the dress was perfect for me, and I felt like it too. I still get to wear a little bit of my dress now and again as one of the embellishments was made into a brooch so I could wear it as little memento, which is just lovely. Thank you to Jo and all her lovely staff for making such brilliant dresses! ” Mel xx

Lizzie went all Electric!!! for her bright coloured wedding- Alternative dresses

I am so excited to share Lizzie and Jake’s wedding !! We love this wedding so much, packed with so much fun colour and Love,  truly unique and totally awesome, !! Lizzie and Jake were married at Birmingham’s Electric Cinema, and then went on for a mexican fiesta style party at the fabulous Bodega Bar in the city centre.

 

Lizzie chose our Gala dress as inspiration and we put some personal twists in it to make it unique to her, we added a cute little sleeve and over laid the spotty fabric onto the palest pink tuille, to give a really subtle pinky hue, It suited Lizzie’s colouring perfectly and she looked super cute

Huge congratulations on your awesome wedding guys xxx

Lizzie writes “My now husband and I put our heads together one evening and decided what we really wanted our wedding day to be about. We wanted it to be personal. We met in Birmingham and wanted to support the local businesses we loved. We booked our ceremony  and reception venue straight away but the part I was most nervous about was finding my wedding dress. I knew the traditional white dress wasn’t my cup of tea, found the idea of trying on wedding dresses quite intimidating and didn’t know where to start looking for an alternative… then I went to The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza in Fazeley Studios, saw The Couture Company’s heavenly dresses and the rest was history!

 

On my first visit to the boutique, Jo sketched out the dress, a combination of a few dresses I’d seen and adored and I placed my order on the spot. Each time I visited for my fittings the dress was more and more stunning, it didn’t stop me from being super nervous before my final appointment when I got to take my dress home with me! Jo and the team were so knowledgeable, professional and welcoming, I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect and “me” dress and felt incredible wearing it on our wedding day.”

Crazy Cath’s Elopement to Oz – Alternative wedding dresses

The lovely and crazy Cath came to us wanting something that was “here” not to girly, not to long, not to hot as she was getting married on Christmas day on the beach in Sydney, Australia….so we got to work and made this rainbow inspired starstruck dress !!! such good fun!!! Congratulations lovely lady! xxDSC00560 (Copy) DSC00562 (Copy)

We Had a lovely testimonial and review left by Cath””A unique place that loves life, love and your experience there – just the best place you could go to make your dream dress a reality!! I’ve never reviewed before or felt any need, but these guys are so beyond awesome, more people should get the chance to have their wishes come true and The Couture Co. deserve all the props, praise & business for making it so xx Much love”

Cath wrote to tells us about her day “thanks so much again for all your hard work. The dress was everything I hoped it would be…  It was pretty hot in the morning after some epic raining which caused no end of stress, so I wore the petticoat part of part of my dress at the beach with a light white frock, then for our first [!] xmas lunch, I had on the corset with leggings, then later when we went to like a Xmas all inclusive buffet, which was awesome and cooler, I had my full ensemble on! It was just as perfect and changeable as I’d dreamed, so I had the paper dolly dressing up combo effect that I wanted to help me feel confident throughout the whole day and thank you again so much.

So as it was just us and everything was closed, we had hours to prat about taking pics, so I’ve sent some that are styling, that showcase your awesome work [as best we could with a click stick] and just us plebbing about which was pretty much our theme – I giggled all the way through the 10 minute ceremony and as I’ve said, ended up having 2 Xmas dinners and getting totally plastered, just how we wanted it!”
