a {free} dress story

So you all have heard that we were celebrating our 5th birthday last month.  Well, we told you we were going to do something BIG to celebrate; and boy did we!  One lucky CC Bride received the ULTIMATE gift and here is how it went down...

For 5 years now we were waiting for just the right time to give away a completely {free} wedding gown. We wanted the timing to be special.  We wanted the girl to be super surprised.  And we wanted to catch it all on camera!  Well when our 5th Birthday came around we decided that 5 was a nice round number and that it was quite a milestone, so we knew this would be the perfect  time.  We wrapped up a box with the fabulous gift inside.  We waited until the 5th bride of the year committed to her dress {get it 5th bride for 5 years in business}.  Then we handed her the box.  We will just let the pictures tell the rest of the story... 

Congratulations Madeline!  You and your family are just the sweetest and we are SO excited that you were the one to receive this fabulous gift!


It's our birthday, but one lucky bride will receive a {GIFT} from us!

 January is our Birthday month and we thought it would be awfully fun to give one lucky bride the ULTIMATE {party favor} from us!  What could it be?  We aren't going to tell you quite yet, but once the {GIFT} has been given we will be sure to update you and give you the scoop!  Stay tuned....it will be this month remember!  We can't wait!!!!!

Plus, make sure you check out our {Facebook} page for little hints along the way to see what might be inside the Birthday Box...








Legal Mumbo-Jumbo:  Couture Closet is giving away the Ultimate Party Favor to the 5th bride that says yes to the dress during the month of January 2012.  We will gift away one pre-chosen item from our shop to the bride that commits to the dress and signs her purchasing contract.  All other brides that purchase their dress before bride number 5 will recieve a pre-determained runner up party favor.  



new arrival {SP Ramaje}

This lovely little lady showed up on our door step just yesterday!!!  Isn't she beautiful?  And oh so unique! She is a totally fitted mermaid lace dress with a sheer English Netting over top!  This dress is just too pretty!  If you think this is just what you have been looking for just give us a call and schedule an appointment to try her on!



a bookish wedding {inspiration}

So being a HUGE bookworm I was intrigued by the "book theme" wedding ideas that kept popping up on Pinterest {yes we are Pinterest-ohlics too}.  Then all of a sudden I started noticing a trend in "book theme" engagement sessions from our local wedding photographers!  Just picture this...  You announce to the world that you are getting married by posing for your engagement pictures snuggling on a blanket with a pile of your favorite novels next to you, or maybe the photographer captures a picture of you sneaking a kiss in the stacks of your favorite used book shop.  Then you walk down the aisle with a bouquet of flowers made from the pages of your favorite story {I promise you, this is SO much prettier than it sounds, oh I wish I had though of this for my wedding!}, then your guests are seated at tables with book titles as "table numbers", and maybe your cake {or cupcakes} are set on stacks of books instead of cake stands!  I could go on and on but it will be so much better to show you the pictures!  These subtle little details are what will make your wedding a literary masterpiece!
