How would you like to virtually MEET your wedding professionals before leaving your home?
It's finally possible via TheSavvyBride.com.

Charlotte is proud to be the premiere city to offer thesavvybride.com.

We know it's extremely difficult these days to take time off of work to truck around and meet 5 photography prospects, 4 potential florists, etc etc....
Now you can get a fantastic sense of their personality and style through their 2 minute video with a few clicks of your mouse!

It's a GREAT way for you to introduce your professionals to your family that isn't local. Have your mom in Cali meet your hair/makeup artist from her own home! That would most certainly help eliminate her guilt for not being able to travel to Charlotte to go on vendor and site visits with you. She could still be included!

You can also create your own webpage and ATTACH your professionals' video to your page to blast out to all your family & friends. Hear tips and current trends from the professionals and learn more about the 'dos and don'ts' of wedding planning!

Be sure to check it out today!

Site Launched!

We're thrilled to announce that our main site is LIVE!!!
Be sure to check it out!

Advice of the day: Don't plan any organized activities the day of the wedding for the gals - be sure you're able to relax and enjoy the day without having to run around for luncheons and salons etc. Be sure to have an ON LOCATION hair/makeup artist come to you!
The day FLIES by and you need to take it all in!
