Fabulous New Bridal Salon in Potomac {Love Couture}

We are so thrilled to share the news that there is a gorgeous new bridal salon in the Washington, D.C. area!  Love Couture Bridal Boutique is located in Potomac, Maryland and is luxurious, stylish and designed to give brides an amazing experience.

Love Couture is the creation of Sandy Leone, who has been in the bridal retail business for fifteen years and who believes that every bride should have a wonderful experience buying the gown of her dreams, whether she spends $1,000 or $10,000.  To that end, she has designed a store with spacious dressing rooms, rows upon rows of gowns and swanky detailing.

The salon carries bridal gowns by Lazaro, Pronovias, Ysa Makino, Marisa, Stephen Yearick and more.  Bridesmaids can select from Lela Rose, Cynthia Rowley, Dessy, Alfred Sung, After Six and B2.  The salon also carries a great selection of Mother of the Occasion dresses, evening dresses and frocks for flower girl!

I have to share my first experience with Love (before the salon was even open): a couple of weekends ago my bride had the belt from her dress stolen on her wedding day.  Naturally, she was really upset and called me--so I started calling bridal salons.  Most weren't even open yet, some weren't answering phones and some didn't have any belts like the satin and rhinestone one I was looking for.  But I put out a call on Twitter and my dear friend Doreen from Engaged Magazine reminded me that Sandy's salon was opening soon and hooked us up. 

Sure enough, Sandy produced an entire bag of gorgeous belts for me to take the bride for her to choose from. When I went to pick up the belts at Love, she was still unpacking!  Talk about customer service! Long story short, my bride ended up with a belt from Love that she adored and looked amazing with her gown. So you why I love Love Couture Bridal and can recommend them so highly!

The gowns are gorgeous, the salon is stunning and the staff is fabulous. We couldn't be more excited! The store is by appointment only so call (301-610-5683) or email (  We'll see you at Love!
