Epic Event Planning by Jessica & Kourtney is constantly trying to find the best ways to save money for our clients during the event planning process. For those who have their own children or for any children involved in or attending a wedding or special event, we have found a wonderful online company specializing in renting mini-couture outfits rather than purchasing a dress, suit, or tux that may never be worn again! We love this idea at EEP, so we wanted to share Be Mini Couture as this week’s vendor feature.
Heidi Lieske, the owner of Be Mini Couture explains that they launched the company two and a half years ago, then preceded to launch a “beta” website, followed recently with the “real” website in November 2013. “Things are going well,” says Heidi.
Heidi has always been interested in business, and until October 2013, was working full time as brand manager for Procter & Gamble for the COVERGIRL brand. She had her first son three years ago. When he was one and a half, he was participating in a wedding. “We ended up spending a lot of time, a lot of money, and it [the outfit] still sits in our closet,” Heidi recalls. (Photo below is the final product, after all of the “hassle and time”)
A few months ago, Be Mini Couture was featured on Good Morning America! “We got to meet Rachel Smith, their entertainment correspondent and hang out with her all day,” which is Heidi’s favorite memory in this business thus far. After being on the air, business improved.
Why should you choose Be Mini Couture? Heidi explains that “we provide an experience that no other company can provide – we let mothers dress up their children in dream clothing that they otherwise would not have used. It is a fun, convenient and affordable! In addition, shipping to and
from, 100% insurance and dry cleaning are all included within the rental price!”
In addition to the rental option, Be Mini Couture now also sells outfits at all price levels as well as discounted dresses from past seasons.
Epic Event Planning by Jessica & Kourtney thinks this option is a great idea for any child that is a party of the wedding party or a guest at a wedding or special event!
