Women Entrepreneurs 18 Grace Mahoney of Blushing Brides

by | Nov 15, 2018 | Women Entrepreneurs

At an early age, Grace Mahoney had a flair for making people look and feel beautiful. Updoing her friends hair for school dances and proms, she landed her first wedding as a high school student. With a bride so happy they both cried, she knew she had found her passion. How did such a young woman grow from high school student to Blushing Brides business owner? Grace sat down with This Week In Worcester to share her story of being a young entrepreneur in the busy bridal industry.

Can you share with us a bit about your business and how you got started?
“As soon as I stepped into weddings, I felt fulfilled, but quickly saw a need for reputable companies with talented, reliable artists and organized booking and scheduling. With support of family, friends, and even clients, I made the decision to create a company that filled this gap and modeled all of these things in the industry I loved. So in March 2010, in the middle of working on a college thesis paper, I threw all caution to the wind and opened up Blushing Brides… and I’ve never looked back!” What brought you to Ladies Night Out Worcester and what do you like about it?

“I like the idea of creative business women supporting each other. I am looking forward to meeting other business owners, connecting, and sharing ideas.”
