The Bridal Bar™, a sought after Hollywood resource and wedding library expands and opens a new boutique in the bridal mecca of Atlanta. From television to celebrity weddings, The Bridal Bar boasts a client list that reads like the who's who of Hollywood A-list couples. From the Italian nuptials of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes to the winter wedding of Katherine Heigl and Josh Kelley and the upcoming wedding of Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Bassett; The Bridal Bar has helped thousands of engaged couples walk down the aisle. Now expanding into the South, Atlanta marks the third boutique for the company who has previously graced the pages of Grace Ormond Wedding Style, People, Us Weekly, InStyle Weddings, Town & Country Weddings, and countless others.

This one-stop-shop boasts a complimentary interactive and visual preview of services and products from some of the top event professionals in the city. A pre-screened, highly edited, and diverse group of vendors have been cordially invited to display their works based on their style, experience and impeccable reputations. Brides are welcomed and encouraged to lounge on a couch, sip complimentary champagne, view videos, enjoy photographers' images, taste cakes and much more.

The Bridal Bar seeks out the best and most unique vendors, products, concepts, locations, and so much more so that every bride who walks through the doors leaves an expert themselves. This original concept allows brides to preview and plan for their perfect event.

Bridal Bar Atlanta
The Bridal Bar comes to Atlanta at the caring hands of Rebecca Hansmann, a previous event professional with over ten years experience in the wedding industry. From owning her own consulting firm to working at several of the top bridal salons in Atlanta she has seen not only how demanding it is to plan such a special day but also how rewarding the end result can be with the right guidance. Hansmann found that Atlanta has so many great options from dress boutiques to photographers that the most frequently asked question is "Where do I start?" She notes, "It's important for couples to have a sense of direction right from the beginning. Planning a wedding can seem a daunting task, but with someone there to guide you, simply inspire and educate you, the process becomes more of the celebration that it should be. I'm bringing Bridal Bar to Atlanta to remind brides that this experience should be one of joy and excitement, not nerves and inconveniences."

Thus, the opening of The Bridal Bar Atlanta; a high-end complimentary planning experience where brides, grooms and their families can educate themselves with the assistance of knowledgeable wedding experts.

About The Bridal Bar™
The Bridal Bar was founded in Los Angeles in 2004 by previous bridal magazine editor, Harmony Walton. Built on the premise that every couple deserves their dream day but simply doesn't know where to start; The Bridal Bar launched a boutique and website to showcase and preview the best of the best in the wedding industry and aid those in the daunting task of saying "I Do." Atlanta marks the third boutique for the company, and the first of its kind in the South. Walton explains, "No matter what the economy looks like or one's budget may be; couples deserve to find value with their dollar and time. The Bridal Bar was designed at the core to do just that, with personal and caring attention.

VIB³ Program: The Pink Card
With the recent launch of the VIB³ Program, The Bridal Bar offers couples even more savings in time and money. Giving away more than just great information and inspiration; brides who visit The Bridal Bar boutiques receive a complimentary VIB³: Very Important Bridal Bar Bride card that like the black card (or in this case, pink) grants couples access to special offers, incentives, and freebies at some of the most sought after wedding venues and event companies in Los Angeles, San Diego, and Atlanta. From thank you cards with custom invitation designers, to complimentary cake toppers, and complimentary prints and album credits, these VIB³ offerings offer couples a chance to work with who they desire while receiving more bang for their buck. No matter what the budget, big or small, brides and party-planners alike can rest easy knowing they've made the savviest decision for their bottom line and big dream day.
