Saint Louis wedding show producer seeks to eliminate racial divide in the love industry after being asked to spearhead a black wedding show.
Savoir Faire, founder and owner, Tracy Neal, says, “I wasn’t sure how to respond. I was surprised by the request.”
Neal says what the request did for her was motivate her to make a difference in a wedding industry that is "supposed" to invite others to celebrate love, joy and happiness. “I am naïve enough to believe love is colorblind. While I always hope to see a difference in others, I choose to BE the difference I seek. I can’t give attention to the rest.”
Neal acknowledges the cultural differences between races and brides of various backgrounds. She intends to celebrate those differences and gain inspiration from them while learning, appreciating, respecting and loving on each and every bride.
For its inaugural event, Neal has planned Savoir Faire Saint Louis Bridal Experience for April 17, 2016 at Peabody Opera House. She describes the event as an interactive, multi-cultural bridal show. Savoir Faire is a French phrase meaning an “Affair To Remember.”
"Brides. Grooms. Black. White. Orange. Purple. Let’s get you married! says Neal.
