So many brides, such a good time

Birthday celebrations are so much fun – the balloons, the treats, the exciting atmosphere …  but nothing compares to the friends that gather to help celebrate as another calendar page turns!

It’s hard to believe it’s been TWO amazing years since we opened our doors to our incredible GSB brides who have taken us on a journey that only a two-year-old toddler can experience — one of excitement, newness, creativity and pure joy! And there’s no better way to share our excitement than to give it away?

Our brides have given us the best two years we could ever imagine so now it’s our turn to be givers!  To show our appreciation, Grace Style & Bridal will be hosting its “Grand Anniversary Giveaway” all month long.  To kick things off, we are giving away a designer wedding gown valued up to $1200 to one lucky bride this August.  All brides and their entourages are encouraged to check out contest details on our Instagram and Facebook pages @GraceStyleandBridal in order to enter on time.

We truly value and appreciate our GSB brides and all the memories we have shared with them.  Customer appreciation is much more than an annual sale – it’s a mindset and a way of treating everyone who comes through the door.

The Struggle is Real

So many brides go into wedding planning mode trying to make everyone happy, ofen overlooking themselves.

While the national average number of bridesmaids is 4.39 (????) we tend to find that 5-6 seems to be more the norm with most brides who walk through our doors.  Granted there are some who only have three, and then other gutsy gals who go straight to 10!  Then there are the  brides who are caught in the “asymmetrical conundrum,” and have fewer bridesmaids than their fiances have groomsmen, so these beauties often feel pressured by the “symmetry and alignment,” and suddenly feel compelled to ask their nail tech and esthetician to join the party just to even things out for Mr. Congeniality.  Continue reading “The Struggle is Real”
