    Prom is just around the corner and it comes faster than you think. Having to arrange the prom plans along with your hair, makeup and nails is just too exhausting, especially when it comes to picking prom dresses.

    For prom this year or any special event that you have coming up, make sure to stop by ElaNour Couture, a dress boutique with high quality and exquisite designs.

    “ElaNour Couture begun as a dream shared by the two sisters; Ela and Nour Salameh to bring in elegant evening, and cocktail gowns made by Lebanese couture designers. Having the best in-person experience of being pampered while trying on designer dresses is their main focus for every female that walks through their doors.” –

    The shop is located on 18503 Detroit Rd. in Lakewood, Ohio, right near Bee Clean car wash and Folicle salon.

    I even had a chance to ask the girls, Ela and Nour, about their business, background and goals to their fashionable company.
