    Hi!!! Absolutely LOVE these choices! But for myself I was considered somewhat the ‘Alternative bride’ in our community which made it even harder to find a dress that felt like ‘me’, by pure fate I found a company called The Couture Company. They were just incredible and Jo (The designer) makes you feel like you are the only person in the world! Honestly in the UK they are just incredible. You can buy stardard sizing from 6s and 10s to 24 and above! (I am a mishmash of a 24/26 and she worked magic with me!) or completely custom creations, along with handmade corsets to your exact measurement (which give you a waist like never before!) Which canbe seperate or built into the dress. I thank my lucky stars I found The Couture Company ( http://www.the-couture-company.co.uk ) and would love you to consider them as an addition to any future bridal dress features! Thankyou so much x
