New Vineyard stores specialize in weddings and bedding


Whether you are planning a wedding, an anniversary, a birthday, or any special event, your job may just have gotten easier with the grand opening of Martha’s Vineyard Wedding Studio this past Saturday.

With this unique, all-encompassing, one stop resource center for event-planning studio, you can find vendors and service providers on the Island, while leaning on the experience of owner/consultant and third generation Islander India Rose. Ms. Rose found the inspiration for starting this business after getting married on the Vineyard in 2009. “It started with my own wedding and having to deal with all of the details. Even though I had grown up on the Island, I still found that I had to ask people for referrals. My party planning experience came from my wedding along with many years of being my own hostess, as I love to entertain,” Ms. Rose said.

At her studio, you will be able to relax while sipping and tasting sumptuous treats, browse through menus, albums, music, and videos to help you decide what exactly excites you. This hands-on, relaxed approach is a first of its kind on the Vineyard as, according to Ms. Rose, “It is not about logging on to Google information or just grabbing a flyer to go, it is instead about an experience that gives you time to look at a broad spectrum of information.”

This is supported by Ms. Rose’s philosophy that, “I do not consider myself a wedding planner, but instead I am like a librarian or concierge and my business is a resource center like a Chamber of Commerce or a library.” Ms. Rose can help you connect with Martha’s Vineyard wedding and event vendors of choice, set up your meetings and tastings, while helping you to ensure all your to-dos get done with your vision in mind.

You will find the Martha’s Vineyard Wedding Studio at 151 Beach Road, in Vineyard Haven, on the second floor. To make an appointment, visit them on the web at or call Ms. Rose at 508-685-0484.
