Every now and then I’ll sit down with a friend in the wedding business and ask them “what makes you different” because there are so many wedding businesses around. Hopefully this blog post, and others, help you find the right people to help you celebrate your marriage!
I’ve known Carla from Made With Love for almost a decade. It was her mother that introduced me to the concept of greeting people with a kiss on the cheek, something I’d never done before! Her brother is the friendliest human I know and was my first friend on the Gold Coast. So when I found out that Carla was in the wedding dress game I had to sit down and talk business with her!
Hey Carla! Introduce yourself and Made With Love
Hi Everyone! My name is Carla and I am the owner and designer of Made with Love. Made with Love is a new online boutique store selling affordable, unique wedding dresses, veils, flower crowns, head and foot pieces.
Why are you selling wedding dresses?
The love of my life proposed to me in February 2013. After all the tears and excitement I started looking for my wedding dress. We went to nearly 10 bridal shops on the Gold Coast and Brisbane and could not find one dress that was perfect for me in my price range. I remember feeling very disheartened and thought I would have to get married in a dress that was just not me.
So, I started to research unique wedding dresses on Pinterest, Google and Instagram and got the inspiration to start my own unique bridal collection.
How do you describe your style?
I believe “less is more” and base this on all my designs. My style is very simple, elegant and comfortable. I never want brides to look back at their wedding dress in 10 year’s time and cringe!
Made with Love does not focus on one bride’s style, we cater for all brides! From the hippie bride, classic bride, elegant bride, wow-factor bride, beach bride to the timeless bride. Made with Love has a range of wedding dresses with different personalities for all Brides.
How do other people describe your style?
Unique, beautiful, timeless and most of all simple and elegant.
What makes you different to other wedding dress boutiques?
We are a very personal business with two home boutiques on the Gold Coast and Sydney.
We are in constant communication with our Brides and take them on their wedding dress journey! We go above and beyond for our Brides and make sure they feel confident and comfortable when purchasing their wedding dress with Made with Love.
We also offer a service where we post a sample wedding dress to our interstate brides who do not feel confident in purchasing online.
How can brides get in touch?
