The Couture: Concha España


(post from our wed site before..)

As soon as we announced our engagement to our family, I immediately look and research for my couture that will make me look like a princess on our wedding day. Honestly, it was very hard task that every bride will encounter. I read some reviews and even started to post in the Weddings-at-Work forum asking for recommendations for designers and found out that there are brides who really spent thousands of money for their wedding gown but for me with my very tight budget, hiring a famous designer is out of my list and just stick to my budget.

I only have simple criteria for my dream wedding gown which I saw at Cosmopolitan Magazine (Model: Kristine Hermosa). I want it to be sweetheart neckline with princess style skirt and chapel train accentuated with beads in front and back.

I emailed 8 designers and all of them emailed me back with their proposal. All of their works are beautiful, but none of them fit my budget.. **sigh** Happily, one of them really stood out to me, Last May 31, 2011 I received a message from Concha España with her standard rates. As soon as I open her proposal, I feel that she is the "ONE" that I'm looking for. She told in her email that she can customized everything for me just send her my reference / prefer design. Wow! I search for her website and found out that her work spoke for herself. They were just plain GORGEOUS!

Concha accommodated my request, I even sent her some pictures of my desire gown and she immediately replied and gave her rates. What I really like with her is that she also explains to me the materials that she will going to use. After several emails, we decided to meet each other to discuss my dream gown. Ian and I went to their house and finally met her, Concha is very gracious lady and an easy person to talk to. She is very generous in giving us suggestions about my gown, she even suggested using detachable gathered / sheared tulle for me to have different design on reception. As soon as I got the sketch of my wedding gown, I am tempted to upload it but I really want it to be a surprise especially for my groom. Haha.. For me, the design is simple, sophisticated and beautiful which suit my personality as a woman.

I'm so happy that she will be designing my dream wedding gown as well as the dresses for my whole female entourage. And I promise that we're all going to look gorgeous on that day!

Now, we are schedule to meet by February for the measurements. I'm so excited to wear my simple, chic and glamorous wedding gown in seven months.
