Our seamstresses only alter gowns that were purchased at Love Couture Bridal. Alteration fees will be negotiated between you and the seamstress; payment for alterations is made directly to the seamstresses as they are not affiliated with our salon.
 

What is a trunk show?

Trunk shows give brides the opportunity to view a larger selection of a particular bridal designer’s collection than what is normally present in our salon. In some cases a designer or a representative from the designer will be in the salon giving expert advice and assistance. A discount and or incentive is typically offered during trunk shows.
