Champagne, Wine, Oh My!

With this in mind, Glenwood South Tailor and Alterations decided to turn this experience into a relaxing and luxurious event by “Making it a Day”. Champagne, wine, photography, laughter, what is there not to like?! The bride and bridesmaids will be placed in the luxurious showroom with 1-2 stylists for personal attention.
