With the new wedding engagements that come with each holiday season, a bevy of new brides-to-be are busy lining up locations and vendors for their upcoming “I-Do’s”. Barrington event planner, Christina Currie, knows how overwhelming the process can be so she’s found a way to make it special by keeping it simple. Christina is hosting her 4th annual Grace Meets Glamour Boutique Bridal Affair at Biltmore Country Club coming up on Sunday, February 23rd, where brides can meet a select group of the area’s finest wedding vendors in an elegant setting, all under one roof.

With Grace Meets Glamour, Christina works hard to create a fantastic opportunity to connect brides with vendors while being treated to an afternoon where they get to truly shine. Champagne and hors d’ouevres will be served during the event to celebrate the brides in attendance. There will be a fashion show, live music, wedding cakes, floral and decor ideas, swag bags for brides and special touches throughout, but Christina Currie says the magic begins at the entrance.

“When they arrive at Biltmore there’s valet parking and ice sculptures at the entrance. Each bride gets a pearl necklace when they come so we know who is the bride. Most of my clients prefer a more customized and personalized approach so the show is very laid back.”

Christina also says she purposefully limits the number attendees to 75 brides and their guests…

“I remember being a bride and going to big shows and feeling overwhelmed. Grace Meets Glamour is more intimate. We only feature one vendor per category so, right there, the bride can start building a relationship with the vendor because planning a wedding is a journey and all of the vendors are your team players.”

From invitations to wedding dresses to the food, flowers and photography, there will be individual vendors on-hand representing every element of the wedding.

And Christina says Grace Meets Glamour has an international theme this year.

“A lot of our brides are very diverse and they like to include elements that reflect their cultures.”  In keeping with this year’s theme, there will be three different wedding table vignettes.

“One table will have a ‘French Market’ theme, with touches inspired by France.  Another vignette is called ‘Amore on Almafi’ which will be very summery and very white, with fun blues and coral flowers. The third is an ‘Asian Inspired’ vignette with red and black, a square table and everything you’d want for an Asian fusion wedding.”

Christina is asking the brides who attend the event to donate $5 to Wish Upon a Wedding, an organization that helps provide dream weddings to couples facing terminal illness or other serious life-altering circumstances. Christina Currie is a founding member of Wish Upon a Wedding’s Chicago Chapter and it’s a cause she’s particularly passionate about because of the profound impact it has on people’s lives. “For example, I met a couple and the groom had just returned from serving in Iraq, where he was injured. Through Wish Upon a Wedding, we were were able to grant them their dream wedding.”
