Claudia: Feature Bride

Crisp fall Texas air, a Fort Worth brewery, and a couple in love made for a perfect day. Claudia and Alcides tied the knot on November 11, 2016 surrounded by family and friends. As they approach their 1-year wedding anniversary, we can’t help but reflect on her special visit to Ava’s Bridal Couture, and the moment she found the perfect dress to kick off the rest of her life.


We just love it when a bride finds the dress that makes their heart skip a beat; the dress they can picture themselves walking down the aisle to join their soon-to-be-husband, feeling fabulous. Claudia found THE dress at our salon after visiting two other locations, and having a different style in mind.  She was looking for a simple, feminine silhouette that complimented her curves. Accompanied by her mother, they both set out to browse our selection. Reluctant to try on what her mother had picked, she agreed to give it a try. Seeing it first on the hanger, she was a bit skeptical, and a bit broken from her previous searches. As soon as she tried it on, the world stopped, knowing immediately this was her dress.

Claudia and Alcides - Wedding Dress

This fit-and-flare gown is one of our favorites. The lace detail is so delicate, but the pattern is prominent and eye-catching. It’s versatile enough to do all the talking on its own, or it can be easily dressed up with beautiful accessories for a customized look. The corset back with satin ribbon gives the gown alluring appeal, while the sweetheart neckline ties all the beautiful details together. She added her own special touch by making her own sash with her mother’s help; a very special memento that she will hold close to her heart forever.

Claudia’s dress stole the show among all the other beautiful details of her wedding. It was comfortable, non-restricting, and fit her like a glove, thanks to our alterations team at Classy Concepts Bridal Boutique (sister location in Mansfield, TX). Claudia selected a dress that she absolutely loved and her confidence radiated in every single moment captured from the big day.


The couple’s wedding theme was “Industrial Chic”. They selected The Collective Brewing Project on St. Louis Ave. as the venue, which we think is super cool. Being a flowerless wedding (minus the bouquets), she wanted the venue to take center stage in her inspiration. Exposed brick, antique wood, and Edison lights added charm and set a romantic evening vibe that was unique to them.  She sends a special thank you to all her wedding day vendors and contributors that made her dream wedding a reality.
