You're what??


Newly engaged and don’t know where to start? From setting a budget, holding off on asking a wedding party, and hiring a planner, Nora has lots of good advice! Check out her recent segment on KPTV below.


Place Cards vs. Escort Cards


Nora recently went in to discuss the difference between place cards and escort cards on Good Day Oregon. Check out her segment to get the scoop, and also learn more about one of her favorite trends…escort displays!

Long story short, escort cards direct guests to a certain table. Place cards note the specific place at a table the guest should be seated!

That being said…watch the segment for lots of fun and creative ways to incorporate one or both in your wedding!


Wedding Gown Trends 2019


Curious what’s hot for weddings in 2019? We know one thing is for sure…wedding gowns keep getting prettier and prettier! It was no surprise that Meghan Markle’s dress was the talk of the town at Bridal Fashion Week, but the emerging trends take it to a whole new level! Take a peek at Nora’s segment on Good Day Oregon to learn more!


Wedding Insiders Podcast

Our founder (and Mother Hen), Nora Sheils, recently chatted all things Bridal Bliss on the Wedding Industry Insider podcast!  Nora shares her story, how she has built our team, the value of working on your business, rather than in your business, how to effectively lead and best advice for all aspiring planners. She also gave a little teaser on a new startup she is working on that will be relevant for all wedding industry vendors and couples alike! For more details check out Rock Paper Coin.

Big thanks to our friend and podcast host, Eddie Babbage from Timeline Genius, for having Nora on!  She was honored to be in the company of so many wedding industry inspirations like Sasha Souza, David Tutera, Donnie Brown, Kristin Banta, Alan Berg and so on. Enjoy!
