The Allure of a Couture Wedding Dress
We have to admit that one of our favorite things about celebrity weddings is learning all the details of the bride’s couture dress. As brides have become more fashion-forward, they’re choosing to wear a couture gown for their big day and making it a priority on their wedding-planning list. A bride who wants a made-to-measure gown is looking for something extraordinary, unique, and constructed perfectly for her.
Creating a true couture dress starts with a designer’s vision and a team of skilled professionals; and involves a commitment to time and preciseness that transforms a gown into a work of art. In addition to a flawless fit, a wedding dress designed by a couture atelier showcases hours of craftsmanship, luxurious fabrics, and intricate details.
Haute couture is the ultimate way in which a fashion house can express its imagination and talent. “We get to indulge ourselves in working with the best quality fabrics and laces and designing the most exquisite embroideries,” says Sharon Sever, Galia Lahav head designer. “We’re able to make a bride’s dream come true, but also manifest our dreams as designers.”
Private consultations and impeccable tailoring are part of the exclusive experience of having a couture gown made for your wedding. “Tradition is at the heart of couture,” says Sever. “A bride’s dream dress should fit as good as it looks and making it fit just right is where all the secrets of the trade are weaved into the dress.”
Not only one of the top bridal designers to create dresses from original designs made with specifically sourced, fine materials, Galia Lahav is one of the few couture houses to offer custom wedding gowns allowing every bride to feel like a celebrity in her own one-of-a-kind dress. Galia Lahav’s customization process allows the bride to work with a stylist to personalize her couture gown by modifying, for example, the sleeves, lace details, or train length. The marriage of time-honored couture with modern designs proves that a wedding dress can be a fashion statement.
