A wedding planning company recently opened a studio in Greenville’s West End.

Wedding 101, located at 807 S. Main St., is a wedding planning resource library and studio with free services for brides and planners.

Brides can gather ideas, explore vendor options, meet with professionals and receive one-on-one consultations from bridal experts for free. Brides and vendors can also use the studio as a meeting space.

Owner Mary Sims Costigan said professional wedding vendors such as photographers, caterers and floral designers will market their services through interactive vignettes, displays and portfolios.

The studio is designed to make the planning process easier, Sims Costigan said.

Wedding 101 LLC was founded in 2009 in Nashville, Tenn., by Amy Dickerson and Ashley Hicks. In 2011, they licensed their brand. Wedding 101 Columbia opened soon after, followed by Wedding 101 Greenville this year.

Wedding 101 will be open Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Appointments are also available.

A ribbon cutting and grand opening will be held today at 6:30 p.m.
