Puttin’ On The Glitz, a specialty shop located in Perrysburg, has launched a new online forum for local brides-to-be.
The free feature is designed to help local brides with the wedding planning process by offering tips and advice, starting online discussions and sharing ideas among the Puttin’ On The Glitz “family,” local wedding-industry professionals, and other forum members.
Visitors to the site can log onto numerous discussion boards covering topics like invitations, florals, jewelry and favors, with more to come. By partnering with contacts and resources in other bridal-related industries the shop hopes to make the forum a “one-stop-shop” for all brides-to-be with questions.
In addition to the bridal message boards, there are also boards devoted to Quinceañera planning and First Communion needs.
To join the forum, brides should visit www.PuttinOnTheGlitzStore.com and click on “Bridal Forum.” Non-registered brides have full access to read the postings, but must complete a quick, free registration to start posting their own questions and tips or to respond to other posts.
Planning a wedding involves a lot of coordinated effort and inevitably there are a lot of questions. Puttin’ On The Glitz owner Joanne Heuss is currently right in the middle of wedding preparations for one of her daughters. As the wedding plans got underway, she realized there had to be a easier, more budget-friendly way to plan a wedding, she said.
Puttin’ On The Glitz, which opened June 1, is located at 122 W. South Boundary, Suite B in Perrysburg. Regular store hours are Tuesday and Saturday 1 to 5 p.m., Wednesday and Thursday 3 to 9 p.m. and all other times by appointment.
The shop will also be represented at the bridal fashion show at the Crown Plaza Hotel in downtown Toledo Sept. 14 from 2 to 4 p.m. and the “Tie The Knot” bridal show at the Lourdes College Franciscan Center Oct. 5 from noon to 4 p.m. For more information, contact Kelly at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 419-874-3334.
