When I was planning my own wedding, I knew that I didn’t want to visit a busy bridal shop with salespeople pushing puffy, expensive designer gowns. I discovered and ordered my dress online, sight unseen. Realizing that not every bride-to-be would take that kind of leap of faith, my lifelong fashion obsession, love for working retail, and entrepreneurial spirit decided my fate… and the idea of Glitter & Grit was born.  The wedding industry is full of people and organizations telling you what you have to do to make your wedding perfect. But I don’t believe in “have-to’s;” I encourage every couple to make the celebration of their union truly their own. Weddings, like marriages, can be brilliantly beautiful, but not without hard work and honesty; a little glitter, from a little grit.
