A new pop-up shop will give 10 lucky couples the chance to achieve the wedding of their dreams at a fraction of the price. Think the Grammy group wedding was epic? Couture event designer Raquel K. Williams takes it up a notch with Blissful Grandeur, a mass matrimony for couples looking to exchange vows in a creative way. Their first stop is Washington, DC on February 14, Valentine’s Day.
If you and your hunny have considered elopement or a courthouse union — maybe you never thought you could afford a wedding at all — then you’re in for a treat. Now you can get the perfect wedding package, amazing ambience, gourmet cuisine, luxurious gifts, and photo opportunities — even celebrity entertainment (Y’Anna, soulful singer and winner BET’s Sunday Best competition will be serenading guests at the DC celebration). All you need to bring is your dress/tux and your bride-to-be. The best part? Blissful Grandeur caters to the LGBT community and works to create a welcoming environment for everyone.
“I believe it is important for same-sex couples to be able to embrace their love through celebration and not feel the need to compromise or downplay this portion of their union,” says Blissful Grandeur founder Raquel K. Williams. “We carefully select couples who compliment each other to join us for Blissful Grandeur so that the room is filled with love and welcoming energy.”
Each couple is pre-screened before they become a part of the big day. Once selected, the seating for the couples’ first four guests are included in the registration fee of $2,800* (for an additional cost, you can invite up to 20 people). (Did we mention that each package is valued at about $48K?) While the ceremony, bouquet toss, cake cutting, first dance and overall reception will be shared, there are lots of opportunities to personalize your nuptials and include some private moments for you and your sweetheart.
So why not share the cost with other couples? Skip the fuss of wedding planning and financial strain. Focus on saying “I do” and starting the rest of your life with your new bride.
*Act fast! Two lucky ELIXHER readers will receive a deeply discounted registration rate (first come, first served). Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how!
