Meet Erin, the magic behind bridal boutique Glitter & Grit.

Since opening in 2013, Glitter & Grit has been on a mission to simplify the shopping process for brides. Erin’s approach marries tasteful, one of a kind gowns and luxurious fabrics with intimate appointments. The result is one stop bridal shopping: dress, accessories and veil. Three birds with one stone? Yes please!

Here’s how it works: book an appointment with Erin online. Then show up to Glitter & Grit ready to play dress up with your entourage in tow. Erin will handle the rest. She makes it easy for you with the bridal gowns she features.

Speaking of dresses, you won’t find any big name bridal designers here. No mass produced product or cheap fabrics either. Instead, Erin looks to independent designers for pieces that reflect current trends and align with her personal taste, that happens to be spot on.


The meetings are intimate and open-allowing Erin is able to help clients who have-no-idea-what-they-want, clients who know exactly what they want, and everyone in between.

Along the way you’re bound to find some dresses that you’ll like, and others that you may dislike. But rest assured, that’s all part of the process! Embrace it. How else are you going to find the perfect dress?
