Your Bride Tribe is all about
connecting brides with...

We will be each other's "bride tribe" even when your actual tribe isn't supportive and you feel like you're on your own.

One of the most stressful parts of the wedding planning process is finding reliable vendors to work with. I've put together a list of the top Chicago wedding vendors (many willing to travel nationwide) to help put an end to the stress.

The vast majority of brides find wedding items on Etsy so what better place for them to connect with the best products and sellers than on a site that they already frequent for wedding planning support/advice? 


So who's idea was this?

Hi there, I'm Stephanie Blake! A few things about me...

  • I love all things organization and planning
  • I have an obsession with french fries & coffee (check out that picture - can you tell?)
  • I don't wear jeans because my weight fluctuates too much (#FoodieProblems)
  • I'm married to the most amazing man in the world named Matt
  • I work full time as a public relations professional, graphic designer, social media guru & marketer

Why I Created This Community
I believe that the best way to help people is to connect them with others who are experts in their field.

When it comes to wedding planning it boils down to 3 main areas:

  • Other brides who are going through the process themselves
  • Wedding vendors who have been working in the field for years
  • Etsy sellers who help to make your wedding day beautiful with their handmade items

By connecting with each other we use our most important assets to strengthen one another.
