A Little Bit About Us
In the Words of Stefanie Lauvray, Owner
While Chris and I were planning our wedding we found that many services we wanted for our special day were either not available, too costly or unfortunately lacking customer service. I had experience in the bridal industry as a regional Bridal Manager for Macy's Department Stores and knew that this industry requires more than just good service, but an expert at making people feel outstanding about the decisions they make for their big day. I had always dreamed of owning my own business and the bridal business seemed to be a good fit for me. I started with one invitation catalog on one little table at a small bridal show, and that is where I met my first customer.
Over the years, I have been asked many questions about the name Alternative Hitches. It actually has special meaning to me. I graduated from The Ohio State University with a degree in Fashion Merchandising and Textile Science. While attending, I was assigned a project to design a clothing line and create a marketing strategy. I chose to design very unique styles of wedding dresses that had a sort of punk appeal and named the line Alternative Hitches. At the time, the Alternative Hitches line stood apart from all the rest of the student competition because it was something different from what was currently seen on the runways, and the designs were inspired by asking fellow students what details they would want to see one day in their dress on their wedding day.
Today, Alternative Hitches no longer has a punk appeal, but what does still hold true is that our product and service is based on the clients needs and making your dream day come true.

In the words of my daughter's maid of honor, using Alternative Hitches for day-of wedding coordination was, "the best money you spent!" Stefanie and Dana not only helped us put the finishing touches on the final days of planning, but because of them, the wedding day was stress free. It was an absolute joy to work with them!Sent on 11/28/2010

Dana was very helpful throughout the entire wedding planning process and the wedding itself. We had to make some last minute changes because of weather and she handled the situation very professionally.Sent on 10/06/2010

At first I was a little skeptical to have help (because I thought my mom and I could handle it all), but we had to go with Plan B on the day of my wedding. Everything was scheduled to be outdoors and we made the call to push everything inside (Plan B) an hour before it started. We could not have survived without Stefanie and Dana taking care of everything...they were efficient, quick to assist and just really took away a lot of the stress during the day. I highly recommend these ladies so you can enjoy a stress free day (regardless of what is thrown your way!).Sent on 10/15/2010
