COUTUREcolorado is a blogazine & resource guide.

ONE distinctively chic point-of-view, Three fabulous sites: LIFE & STYLE, WEDDING and BABY.

What is a Blogazine? The fusion of the web-based blog and the classic magazine. A blogazine is like a blog being that it is generally the thoughts of an individual rather than of an organization. However, it is also like a magazine in two ways: the content is higher quality {more refined, focused, and selective}, and the design of each blog post/magazine article is custom-tailored to the content.

What is Couture? cou·ture [koo-toor; Fr. koo-tyr] adj. being, having, or suggesting the style, quality, etc., of a fashion designer; very fashionable: the couture look.

COUTUREcolorado WEDDING launched on the day of love, February 14th, 2010. It quickly gained recognition and readership. 5280, a Denver magazine, named COUTUREcolorado BEST BLOG four months after it's launch and again in 2011. Due to the overwhelming success of WEDDING, the founder Laura Dombrowski launched a sister site: COUTUREcolorado LIFE & STYLE on Colorado's 135th Birthday, August 1st, 2011.

Goal: Providing Colorado women with their daily dose of inspiration while shining light on one-of-a-kind Colorado businesses.

Motto: Be an inspiration. Be inspired.

COUTUREcolorado WEDDING launched on Valentines Day, February 14th, 2010. Daily posts inspire you as you plan your Colorado wedding.

Swoon as you browse through our database of jaw-dropping real weddings. Style & Trend features keep you updated on the latest local wedding trends, while the Etiquette & Advice features provide helpful tips. Local Event announcements keep you in the loop with relevant happenings around town.

THE LIST is a resource guide of the most talented and passionate local wedding professionals. I know wedding planning can overwhelm you with options. THE LIST helps to narrow your focus, find your vendors, and get attainable ideas that will work in Colorado. One of our readers referred to COUTUREcolorado as her Colorado Wedding
