GO: What unique services do you offer brides? What makes your salon stand apart from others?
LM: The motto of our salon is “Experience the Elegance.” Based upon that motto, we strive to create the most enjoyable and elegant experience for each one of our brides. By scheduling our appointments we give brides complete one-on-one time to find and style their special wedding dress. We want you to remember every aspect of your dress; from shopping in our salon, to your fittings and final pick up, to the actual ceremony, for it to be the happiest and most fun it can possibly be!
GO: In your own words, describe the “bridal salon experience” that brides will receive when visiting your salon.
LM: I found my own wedding gown shopping experience to be more ordinary than I had hoped it to be. After all, this was the dress I was going to wear on the happiest day of my life, and I wanted to have an extraordinary experience shopping for it. From my own experience, I decided to provide brides with the attention and one-on-one styling that they deserve when searching for the perfect dress. The experience at Laura’s Couture Collection is one of happiness and fun, never a stuffy or boring atmosphere.
GO: What are your hours?
LM: By appointment only,
Tuesday – Thursday 10am – 5:30pm
Friday & Saturday 10am – 4pm
Closed: Sunday & Monday.
GO: Anything special you want our readers to know?
LM: We love our brides and our brides love us! It’s a great feeling to see the brides come into the store, even years later, to show off pictures from their wedding because they are still excited to see us and show us how we made their big day even more special.
Thank you Laura for giving us look into your services and BEAUTIFUL salon!
