Bella Couture

What a beautiful shop...I'm sooooo happy that we found you! Bella Couture is located in Mt. Laurel...a planned community just outside of Birmingham...awesome area. Yes...this is where Haley found her wedding dress last week...let's all do a HAPPY DANCE...dress is ordered!!!!! She also found her veil and bridesmaid dresses here too. Haley, Mary Claire and I spent a few days in town shopping at some of our local shops, but thought we should expand our search, so we set up some appointments in Birmingham for Thursday. This was our second appointment of the day and when we arrived at the shop, all three of us were taken away by the wonderful selection this shop had to offer...this is for true...we didn't find the first dress that we didn't like...I knew then...we would walk out of there with "THE DRESS"! The owner of the shop is who we had our appointment with and she was just wonderful...a real pleasure to work with...she never rushed us and was so very helpful...we spent 2 1/2 hours there. Haley picked about 10 dresses to try on and they all looked beautiful, but when she came out with "THE DRESS" she knew it was the ONE and so did Mary Claire and Mom! When she put the veil on, I think my heart stopped...she looked so beautiful...just the way I have always seen her in my dreams...this dress is so her and I could tell that she felt like a million bucks in it and that's just how I wanted her to feel. We took some wonderful pics of her in the dress and I so wish I could give you a little peek at it, but I better not...never know who might see it...I will share with you a few pics from our time here at BELLA come with me and take a look!
                                       Thanks for coming and I hope to see ya again...real soon,
                                                             Bride and Maid of Honor

                                           Look at that smile...this was after she found IT!
                             Sooooo many to pick from....this owner has outstanding taste!

                                          These two dresses were sooooo PRETTY!

                                           Maid of Honor having a little this isn't
                                                           the one Haley went with.
                                                      Love this one, but it's not it...sorry!
                       We did go back to the hotel to sleep on it, before we placed the
                           here is  DAD waiting the next day outside while Haley got fitted...she
                                            didn't want him to see her in sweet!
                            Mt. Laurel is a great little can click HERE to check it out.
                                      Looking forward to going back in early May to have
                                                        Haley fitted in her dress.

I love Mt. Laurel too! I think it is so much like Mayberry. I have been there often.
