Couture Brides - Ashley

Ashley said "I do" to Nate on October 9th, 2010!  She wore a stunning fit-to-flare organza gown by San Patrick.   Ashley worked with SheaNichole Designs to create a custom bridal sash that accented the gown and incorporated the overall color scheme.  She also accessorized her look with a birdcage veil and rocking chandelier earrings!  Here is a sneak peak from their awesome photographer Jennifer Bearden, who captured the wedding day perfectly!

Congratulations Ashley and Nate!!

Wedding Dress Wednesday - Melissa Sweet "Anya"


This is a dazzling gown from Melissa Sweet!  I have been in love with the "Anya" gown since it first hit the runway several seasons ago and now we are lucky enough to have a NWT "Anya" on consignment!  The perfect gown for a lavish look!  I can't even begin to explain the detail put into creating this gown.  The strapless silk taffeta is covered in verdino (silver) laser cut appliques and then hand beaded with rhinestones, pearls and crystals throughout.  Verdino silk satin lines the neckline, skirt hem and train.  A modern fit-to-flare silhouette mixes glam and formal elements to create the perfect combination.  This gown has never been worn or altered and is in great condition.

Style: Anya
Color: Ivory/Verdino

Happy 1 Year to E.G. Couture!

A year ago today we officially opened for business!  It has been a super sweet year filled with parties, trunk shows, and building relationships with new clients and vendors.

As much as I would love to snack on some gourmet cupcakes in celebration, my waistline will thank me for refraining and offering this instead:

Please come and celebrate with us and thank you for an amazing year!
