Our Story

WE have a lot in common.

WE are leaders. WE are business-owners. WE share a common clientele: the Bride in search of the most DISTINCTIVE, the most highly REGARDED, the absolute BEST resources in Victoria, BC that will transcend her expectations for her lavish wedding.

WE are WoW.

Women of Weddings in Victoria BC is the city's first alliance of prestige wedding businesses. WoW connects leaders in the wedding industry- to one other, and to our clientele.

We have talent, expertise, and experience. We know how best to cater to the refined tastes of our clientele. We have a passion for supporting each other's businesses, sharing our trade secrets, and referring valuable clients to one another.

What WE don’t have is a lot of TIME.

Time to promote our businesses while focusing our energy on serving the needs of our clients. Time to experience the outstanding work of our peers. Time to research the most current wedding trends. Time to attend networking events that don't relate specifically to our niche industry. What can WE do about this? Read more.

Inspiration for WoW

WoW | Women of Weddings is the vision of Sharon Rai, owner of Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry. Sharon has a passion for creating a one-of-a-kind experience for her bridal clientele, helping them look radiant throughout every step of their wedding journey. She often collaborates with other wedding businesses owned by women in Victoria BC. Sharon imagined bringing together the women whose common passion is to make a bride’s dreams come to life. WoW has emerged as a unique community in which the niche wedding businesses can come together to network, celebrate the best services and products in the industry, share experiences, learn from one another, and inspire each other as leaders.  Read the full story.
