“In a sea of wedding “experts”, Rebecca stands alone as a visionary. There is simply nobody better qualified to shape the future of the wedding business.”

Sean Low

Former President Preston Bailey Designs

“Rebecca’s exposure to thousands of brides, grooms and wedding professionals over the years from all different regions and backgrounds gives her a unique – and hard to find – understanding of the wedding industry. That, coupled with her practical experience of building and branding wedding businesses, has made her one of the most knowledgeable wedding industry professionals I have had the pleasure to work with.”

“I have had the pleasure of working with Rebecca for many years and she continues to amaze me with her knowledge, vision, and creativity. She is an innovator in the business of weddings.”

Preston Bailey

“Rebecca’s marketing expertise makes her one of America’s most informed authorities in marketing to the bridal market. Her in-depth knowledge of the destination wedding category provide contemporary insights that should be “must read, must know” for any marketing decision-maker in the hotel, resort, destination or travel and hospitality industry.”

Rod Caborn
Executive Vice-President
YPB & R Advertising and Public Relations

“What a rare combination of attributes these two women possess; both incredibly savvy and clever when it comes to the bridal market and yet, also true “hands in the mud” types, a far cry from the usual “marketing consultant/dilettante” we are all used to.  I am constantly amazed by their talents.”

Marcy Blum

“Rebecca Grinnals is one of the major players in the development of destination weddings. Moreover, Rebecca is a consummate travel professional who knows every aspect of the business from marketing and sales to food and beverage to filling rooms with visiting friends and relatives. As an added bonus, she possesses a drive and enthusiasm rarely seen in her field. Anyone who engages her services will be getting the best in the business.”

Thomas F. Curtin
Senior Vice President/Publisher
Bridal Guide Magazine

“Rebecca Grinnals is truly a creative visionary with a breadth of expertise that is unparalleled in the wedding industry. Her grasp of both the business and psychology of weddings gives her a perspective that allows her to accurately forecast industry economic trends and the steps needed to build a successful business as a result.”
