Welcome Brides!

Any bride-to-be who has ever searched on line or in magazines for top quality wedding vendors in a market area other than Detroit, Lansing or Saginaw knows just how difficult that can be. It seems that Genesee County and the surrounding areas are always left out of those resources. So in 2011, in an effort to fill that gap, a group of wedding professionals in Genesee County got together and formed the Genesee County Bridal Alliance. The GCBA is a one-stop wedding marketplace and it's right at your fingertips! Everything you need to make your wedding day perfect is just a click away.
