Grace Ormonde Wedding Style Website Redesign Has Us Swooning Over Luxury Wedding Inspiration

It's no secret that there are hundreds of wedding resources out there today, however whenever I am wanting to browse luxury wedding inspiration, there's only one magazine that I'll turn to: Grace Ormonde Wedding Style.

Wedding expert Grace Ormonde founded the self-titled, bi-annual luxury wedding publication back in 1998. Flipping through their pages means transporting yourself to exotic adventures, paradise islands and chic cities, all while being inspired by haute couture wedding gowns, multi-tier cakes and decadent design. It's truly high-end luxury at its finest. “Grace Ormonde couples tend to be adventurous, enjoy luxury goods and services, are fashion savvy and stamp their personal style on their weddings. Our couples want to give their guests a memorable experience that is not just limited to the wedding reception. These couples often opt for destination weddings where they fly in their closest friends and families offering a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” explains Grace of her readership.

And after almost two decades of curating luxury content, they've recently given their website a complete makeover as a way to archive all of that gorgeous inspiration imagery. “I wanted to create a site that offers a more user-friendly experience for our visitors,” Grace tells us. “I receive thousands of submissions each year and I found myself never having a home to feature all of this incredible content. Now I have the opportunity to feature more content from around the world in our inspirational galleries.”

The site boasts an easy-to-navigate interface featuring beautiful, hi-resolution photographs and videos focusing on fashion, travel, jewelry, platinum vendors and more. Perhaps my favorite tool of the new site is the travel section that even offers a live concierge service to help you create a dream honeymoon with each property, of course, being vetted by the Grace Ormonde team. (I fell down quite the rabbit hole of dream locales while researching for my own upcoming honeymoon!) “I wanted to provide a carefully curated selection of properties from around the world that offer a luxurious experience to its guests. Most of the properties in this collection either myself or a member from my team have personally experienced,” explains Grace. “I aim to select properties that have an amazing spa, that offer a unique culinary experience for couples, that provide special amenities like wine tastings, etc. and, of course, that have impeccable accommodations and service. These are properties that treat our couples like VIPs.”
