Couture Mixed With More Couture!

Nothing can beat working at an exciting photoshoot with Giovanni and Kenya from Unique Designs & Paul from Footstone Photography! We used a collection of our couture wedding dresses like Alvina Valenta and Marisa mixed with Unique Designs couture invitations. All of the shots were awesome!

Unique Designs does couture hand-made invitations. Their attention to detail is amazing! Some of the invitations come with gorgeous boxes to tie everything together. The inspiration for their new collection of invitations came from the bridal gowns. They can take any theme or idea you have and turn it in to a masterpeice!

Brides don't let your wedding dress being the only fashion savvy part of your wedding!
Indulge with invitations that your guests will talk about forever!

Top 10 Advice on finding the DRESS!

  • Number One Rule: Be open minded! What you think reminds you of your grandmother's dress on the hanger, may in fact be the dress of your dreams.
  • Bring someone that knows your style better than their own. I'm sure the groom doesn't want to see you in something that your bestfriend would wear on her wedding day
  • DON'T PURCHASE YOUR DRESS ONLINE! You miss out on the whole experience.
  • Don't worry what the groom will think. If he loves you, he will love what you pick.
  • Have fun! Remember that you have been dreaming of this day since you were five. Don't let the decision put a cloud over your head
  • If you hate the little bow on the dress, ask the consultant if you can order it Chances are you can. Keep in mind (contrary to what the magazines always say) there might be a charge for it. It won't lower the cost of the dress.
  • Price vs. Love: If you love the dress, GO FOR IT! Don't settle for less on what your wearing for your big day. You can always take some of the budget from the centerpieces and so on. No one will know and we won't tell.
  • Research designers online and make a scrap book of styles that you like. Do keep in mind, that it may all change when you start trying on.
  • Save the group shopping for the mall. This should be a personal experience that you should only share with one or two.
  • When you find it, you find it. Don't second guess yourself or you will pick your second favorite.
