It doesn’t end with the wedding dresses. The boutique is also filled with lovely treasures to complete the look from couture wedding veils, elegantly crafted bridal headpieces and bridal shoes.
About the concept behind the opening of the boutique, Al Ostoura’s Creative Director, Mr. Ramzi Tabiat explains: “The concept of La Mariée was born from the strong demand of our very glamorous clientele to provide them with the best Bridal they can find in the region. As our customer is a well informed and well travelled client, it was natural for us to cater to her bridal needs with a very glamorous and a French-chic bridal apartment concept. Our customer is also used to the best and it is only normal that she is treated in the best manner when she comes to us. In the “La Mariée”, we want her to enjoy a truly memorable experience and to be styled to perfection. So, we created this calming and inspirational atmosphere to ensure that she will live her dream … which will be one of her most important events … and our bride doesn’t deserve anything less than that”.
The dedicated and talented team of La Mariée provides a complete one-on-one service by appointments to fit the bride with the perfect gown for her. They will work with the bride-to-be, her family and friends from the moment they walk into the boutique to the day the bride will pick up her dress. Expert in-house alterations are also provided on site to assure the best fit for the bride.
The “La Mariée” bridal boutique reflects Al Ostoura’s passion for design, quality and detail to offer to each bride an enjoyable experience with the highest levels of expertise and customer service from start to finish. To complete her perfect look, the bride can also choose a resplendent necklace, or earrings or even bracelets from the Al Ostoura’s jewellery stores available in the complex.
