There’s a new kind of bridal boutique in Middle Tennessee working to offer European designs you won’t find anywhere else in the state.

Couture By Tess Bridal is located in the Historic West Side district of downtown Cookeville, Tennessee, and opened to the public on November 11, 2019, with a grand opening celebration to remember. After weeks of social media buzz, local brides were able to tour the 5,000 square-foot boutiques while sipping champagne and admiring a large selection of dazzling and luxurious wedding dresses.

A New Kind Of Bridal Boutique West Broad Entrance

Tess Mann, who owns and operates Couture By Tess Bridal, is no stranger to the world of high fashion. Before launching her wedding gown boutique – first in the Memphis area and now in Cookeville – she discovered a love of design while working with pageant dresses. After noticing a lack of quality and originality among wedding gowns, her focus shifted into a passion for providing affordable yet high-quality bridal couture to brides across the Midsouth region.
For discerning brides seeking gowns with a European touch, Couture By Tess Bridal is the only bridal boutique in Tennessee to carry many highly-sought-after designers such as Katherine Joyce and Tanya Grig (along with Ida Torez, Daria Karlozi, Liretta, Victoria Soprano, and Galizia Spose).
In addition to exclusive European designers, Couture By Tess Bridal is currently the exclusive retailer of the Couture By Tess Signature Collection of wedding gowns. Designed by Ms. Mann herself, these gowns feature high-quality details inspired by Renaissance fashion, the Golden Age of Hollywood, and European trends.
Couture By Tess Bridal has only had its doors open in Cookeville for a few months, but local (and not-so-local) brides have already experienced the luxurious difference. From white-glove bridal consultations to dreamy couture wedding gowns, this new boutique in a historic district will bring you one step closer to the wedding day of your dreams.
And you’ll never guess how Tess Mann spent the first twenty years of her career…it’s not every day a wedding dress designer has a history in law enforcement! Stay tuned to learn more about the designer behind the fabulous gowns of Couture By Tess.
