Teresa "Tess" Mann


I began designing gowns as far back as 1981 during my first pageant experiences. Through the years as I followed the wedding industry, I found many of the standard mass-produced wedding dresses offered in the U.S. fell flat on originality.  

Every season, I kept seeing the same designs over and over and they didn't keep up with the high level of European fashion.  In 2013, I decided to create my own label, Couture By Tess, and received my United States Patent in 2018.

The Couture By Tess Bridal Boutique offers luxurious, yet affordable wedding dresses in Cookeville, Tennessee.  I love to blend romantic and traditional designs with a little bit of glam thrown in for good measure .  Be inspired by the Golden Age of Hollywood, Renaissance era designs or the pure luxury of extravagant ballgowns.

Also look for our other designer collections from famous, well know designers like Daria Karlozi, Dominiss, Galizia Spose, Giovanna Alessandro,  Ida Torez, Iryna Kotapska, Katherine Joyce-Paris, Lana Shiy, Liretta,  Pollardi, Pronovias, and Tanya Grig.
