Expertise

As founder and CEO of GraciousBridal.com, I am pleased to offer suggestions for those puzzling situations such as wanting to give personal gifts to bridesmaids that have totally different interests, how to show appreciation to guests on a budget, what small things that can be done to make a huge impact for the ceremony and reception.

Experience in the area

At the helm of graciousbridal.com, I am up-to-date on the latest trends. Our products have been featured in the finest wedding and style magazines. I am essentially a consultant to consultants. Because many wedding consultants are a small operation, they don't have access to the vendors, markets and other consultants that we have. Therefore, we use our resources to find those elusive items. Having a party and want to re-create the garden at Tavern-On-The-Green? We provided the marbelized balloons. Are you wanting a garden party with lanterns strung through the trees? We have provided the lanterns with coordinating parasols and hand fans. Want to plan a wedding merging two cultures, I can help navigate you through the potentially sticky situations (now is not the time for a social faux-pas!) It is important to be aware of the various customs in different parts of the country too, and I am more than happy to assist brides, moms and consultants in this.

Education/Credentials

A degree in Fine Arts with years of experience in design and marketing.

2015-03-31 SHUTTLE:

Hi Roger,  Congratulations on your daughter's upcoming wedding.  You sound like a very thoughtful father and host.  It is not rude not to provide transportation with such an easy and quick to get to destination

2012-05-12 Wedding on a Budget:

Wendy,  Thank you for asking, and my apologies for the tardiness of the response.  A wedding, no matter the size of the budget, is a minefield, and it brings out every emotion that has been packed away

2012-03-15 Surprise - Dad attending Son's Wedding (orig. not planning to attend):

Hi Al,  Surprises are fun....at birthdays......gift-wrapped.....but not for weddings.  Yes, it's a great surprise for a childhood friend to show up from out of the past.  But a dad?  Especially already

2012-01-18 How many to invite and expect at reception:

Hi Karla,  If there was a formula, brides around the world would be elated!  There is none, and it is always scary when making that list.  You will see experts calculate by saying the number of invitations

2012-01-16 Bridal Party:

Hi Hayley,  Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!  Typically, you would choose your friends if the sisters are that young.  You may make them Junior Bridesmaids, or even have them walk up the aisle
