I would wholeheartedly recommend Laura to anyone in search of a couture gown. Her love for her work and attention to detail is apparent in every exquisite piece.  The wedding gown she made for me couldn't have been more perfect, in fact it was even more beautiful than I had ever imagined. I was so thrilled with both Laura and her work that I ended up having her make my bridesmaid's dresses! It is refreshing to find someone who truly cares about her product and her brides, someone who listens and goes the extra mile. Working with Laura was definitely one of the most fun and easy ventures of the whole wedding journey, and I hope many others have the pleasure of wearing one of Laura's special designs.  -- Spring Min Blackett, San Antonio, TX

Absolutely beautiful dress, amazing quality and a perfect fit. Great communication and a pleasure to deal with. Thank you.                                                                               -- Paul Lewis & Joanna Kurzag, Bedford, United Kingdom

I just wanted to let all of you brides to be know about a fabulous resource in our area for custom made wedding gowns.  My gown is being made by Laura at Coutures By Laura.  Her work is beautiful! You can go by her shop and look at all of the dresses she has made....absolutely gorgeous!  Why not have the most special dress of your life made just for you?!!! -- Amy Huber, Austin, TX

This is the most beautiful custom dress one could hope for. This is my third order from Laura and she has done better each time, as if she could do any better! We worked together on a design that works for my daughter based on one of Laura's original dresses. It came out wonderfully, and everyone at the wedding was commenting on how beautiful it was. I look forward to ordering from Laura again. She is the best. And her customer service is excellent! -- Lillian Hardy, Washington, DC

Laura is uniquely creative and incredibly talented!   Laura's precious creations have been so special to me over the last 18 years. I truly value the relationship we have built over the years and I have the utmost confidence in her abilities. A seamstress sews a dress but Laura gathers thoughts and words and brings them to life!  I am so excited to be reunited with Laura in Austin and look forward to having Laura realize new dreams when the day comes that she'll be creating my daughters' wedding gowns!!! -- Mary Katherine Alonso, Austin, TX (formerly of McAllen, TX)

I found this wedding dress on Etsy and it was love at first site. Laura was quick to respond to all of my messages and happily answered every question with full detail. I live in Arizona, so she made me feel at ease sending me everything I needed to get measured correctly. My dress fits perfect & is everything I had hoped for. It arrived on time and I am very pleased! Thank you, Laura! I cannot wait to walk down the aisle! -- Lauren Santana, Glendale, AZ

Everything looks really beautiful - thank you so much. We are so happy with everything and Grace is really thrilled and so excited especially about her dress.   -- Anita Lenny, Dublin, Ireland

This is the most beautiful dress I have ever been within 10 feet of, let alone owned. It is exactly as pictured and described, only, if possible, even better. All the dresses are made to order, so it fit absolutely perfectly and was ready to wear right out of the box with no wrinkles or alterations. I also have to add that working with Laura and her team has been such a pleasure. I ordered this dress a month before my wedding in desperation, and CouturesbyLaura not only rushed the order for a nominal fee, but even delivered early. They even sent pictures of them making the dress to put my mind at ease while waiting. I could not be happier, and would recommend this dress and this seller to anyone.  -- Jessica Sloan, Arlington, VA

From my wedding gown to my daughters' christening gown, Laura has transformed my mere thoughts into beautiful, life-long memories! I know so many people that have had Laura make their gowns and they ALL have such great things to say about her and her work. You can search far and wide but will not find a better dressmaker than Laura!  -- Liza Hinojosa CamperoLaredo, TX

What a so beautiful gown for my sweet princess!!   Thank you for all and I wish you good business for your shop! -- Lucie Carbon, Sorengo, Switzerland

Laura Gonzalez has been the most efficient dressmaker (and designer) I have ever had!  Not only did she pick up, in only few minutes, on the style of the wedding gown that I was looking for, but she also made so many great suggestions about fabrics and details for my gown and other bridal "stuff".  Her outstanding proficiency, her exquisite taste and creativity make her "the perfect dressmaker"!!!  And last, but not least important, she welcomed me so genuinely warm and friendly and that made me feel so absolutely comfortable and supported!!!  I thank God so much for having had her as my dressmaker and bridal dreammaker!!!  -- Sonia (Schreiber) Coyle, Austin, TX

Because of you, Laura, my daughter had the bridal gown of her dreams!! She had looked several places and seen many lovely gowns, but none that really had the features she was looking for. Not only did she prefer a candlelight gown with her complexion, but she had some very specific design detail in mind. As her mom, I truly wanted her wedding dress to be everything she wanted. I ran across a bridal chat room on the internet. Several brides there raved about "Coutures by Laura" and though we feared it would be beyond our price range and probably too late to get a custom-designed gown in time, we called. Laura met with my daughter two days later, saw the magazine photo, said that she could make it in our choice of lace in the time we had left! Not only that, but she worked with my daughter to customize it even more to her liking than the original concept had been.  The gown fit perfectly, was exactly in every detail what my daughter had wanted, and she positively glowed in it on her wedding day -- she had never looked more lovely, thanks to Laura!! Not only did she make my daughter¹s dream come true, but she truly became a friend to both of us in the process -- especially since she ended up making MY dress for the wedding, too!!  -- Cheryl Rinehart, Duncanville, TX

This dress was perfect!! My 8 year old daughter felt so beautiful on her First Communion day in this elegant dress. Laura is so great to work with and was very helpful. It truly is a one of a kind dress!!! Thank you so much Laura!!! -- Karri Habiger, St. Joseph, MO

Laura did my dress for my July wedding. The dress was amazing!!!! She was great to work with. Real sweet and worth every penny. I highly recommend her and give her name to anyone who asks.        -- From www.austinweddings.com

I was so pleased with this purchase from Coutures by Laura. The seller was prompt to reply to my emails, pleasant to work with and accommodating about special requests. The gown was absolutely lovely! It is an heirloom quality piece that I will cherish forever. I am so grateful to Laura for helping to make our daughter's christening so beautiful.               -- Emily Nozawa, Colorado Springs, CO

We're so pleased with the dress. It's even prettier in person. Laura's designs are a true work of art...one of a kind! I can't wait for my daughter to wear it on her communion day. Thank you Laura for all of your support and constant contact with us. -- Heather Catron, Amityville, NY

One of the moments when I realized how good Laura was happened when I saw how she constructed the strapless part of the dress. The dress hugged me and held onto me at the waist not at the bust like most strapless dresses. The advantage of this is that it won’t move, slip around, or shift up into your face when you sit down. I never once worried about it.  Many dresses, even very expensive ones, and created in a more cheap manner, slide around or are so tight you can't breathe.  -- From www.austinweddings.com

I purchased this dress for my goddaughter's baby naming. It is absolutely beautiful. It was perfect on her! She looked like royalty. There are many baptism gowns out there that look rather drab and quite the same. This dress is one of a kind! This dress will be a family heirloom. Thank you so much Laura! -- Barbara Kress, West Foxbury, MA

I have known Laura Gonzalez for quite some time and find her an absolute God-send. She has the creativity of any Carolina Herrera, Gucci or Armani!  The wedding dress she created for me is still talked about to this day....and it's been almost 4 years! I send all of my closest friends to her because I have confidence that Laura will create the gown of their dreams!                                                                                -- Liza Chapa Finnigan, Austin, TX (formerly of McAllen, TX)

We received the flower girl dress for my two year old daughter and it was truly exquisite! My daughter Lauren absolutely loved it and would not take it off! She looked like a true princess in it, with layer upon layer of tulle and the most beautiful bodice and trim. I had to pull out a Cinderella dress-up dress and trade off with her to get the flower girl dress back! We also really loved the beautiful beaded bow. Thank you for such a beautiful dress! We really love it! It is the most beautiful princess dress I have ever seen!  -- Cindy Fernald, Daniels, West VA

My experience with Laura Gonzalez of Coutures by Laura far exceeded my expectations.  Laura embraced my ideas and requests for a wedding gown with an energy and enthusiasm that immediately expressed her love for her work.  I was more than thrilled with the result, as was my groom and family. Now, when I look back at my wedding photos I cannot help but think about Laura. She will be with me and my memories always.  Thank You Laura!  -- Sarah Antenora, Austin, TX

Where can I begin!!! The gown was as stunning in person as it was in the pictures! Laura was fantastic to do business with! She is not only an ELEGANT dress designer but ALSO a WONDERFUL person as well. The love for her creations is apparent in her gown/bonnet. The detail work in the gown and bonnet was fabulous. Would definitely recommend her work to anyone. Very happy customer! Looking forward to my daughter's big day and having her pass this heirloom gown to her own daughter's!                 --- Colleen Sparks, Nazareth, PA

Laura took up time with me like we were close friends and answered every question and detail I had! She worked through the sizing process for my granddaughter and this dress is a show stopper for sure. Laura even went a extra step and did an added lil something extra and a personal note which made it all worth the wait. Dress arrived earlier than expected I just can't express how much this sweet woman did for me! Oh and I might add we are 4 states apart!!!!!!  -- Julie McClure Clark, Summerdale, AL

This dress is STUNNING!!!!! It was exactly the way it's pictured and fits my daughter perfectly. So happy that I went with my gut feeling and entrusted my daughter's First Communion dress to Laura even though I have never met her and we are in different states. She takes personal attention to every item that you order and when you email her, you get a quick response. All I can say about his dress is WOW!!!  -- Yolanda Reyes, New Rochelle, NY

This dress is beautiful, I was nervous about ordering online and not having seen the work in person but I got it today and was so happy. It is just as beautiful as the one pictured and quality is top of the line. I would highly recommend this dress! -- Heidi Hubler, Carmel, IN

Thank you so much for the absolutely stunning, one of a kind piece. Its so ornate and beautiful and I cannot wait to wear it. -- Lindsey Ryan, Berlin, CT

I was absolutely thrilled with the baptismal dress I purchased from Laura! It was just stunning and my goddaughter looked like an angel in it. Laura was incredibly helpful and accommodating throughout the entire process and made my purchasing experience very easy. I whole heartedly recommend working with Laura for her superior customer service and craftsmanship. It was such a pleasure and I certainly appreciate all of her help.  -- Kristina Menendez, Bronx, NY

Stunning, an heirloom. Could not be more pleased. -- Marta Lopez, Miami, FL

I ordered from Laura and am so pleased that I did! My secretary convinced me to order online because I could not find what I was looking for in stores. The quality of Laura's work is beautiful. Her communication over ordering online put me at ease. I would highly recommend her work and will order from her again! Thank you Laura! I can't wait for Holy Communion Day to see my little girl in her dress. Thank you so much. -- Angie Thriffiley, Biloxi, MS

We absolutely LOVE the dress we ordered from Coutures by Laura. This was my daughters First Communion dress and it was perfect in every way. Expertly made with beautiful material - we anticipate passing it down to her daughter and granddaughter one day. I'm already looking forward to purchasing future items from Laura. The item arrived on time and packaged beautifully. Would highly recommend! -- Tami Wallace, Gallatin, TN
