• Wood Grain & Lace Vendor List

    Breathe. Let us help you. 


    This portal is a collection of recommended vendors from the WGL team.

    Our goal when we charge for our services is to pay for ourselves in discounts, wise recommendations and your mental health.


    We want to support individuals and companies who look at the wedding world the way that we do. And we want the planning process to be as straight forward and simple as it should be.


    To be clear, these are all recommendations and WGL will not be held responsible for any outside vendors. We can attest to the service, professionalism, and pricing of their services at the time that previous clients used them. If any of these vendors proves to be unworthy of our recommendation, they will be removed from the list immediately.



    Happy planning and please reach out if you have any other questions or are seeking further advice.
