Meet Ingrid Heilke, Co-Founder of BridalVision & Your Next Event's Financial Expert.
When I found the world of bridal stores, I found a community of business owners that were solely dedicated to the beauty and transformation of a moment in other women’s lives, but were sacrificing themselves to make it happen. I found loving people who would go hundreds of thousands of dollars into debt to make a moment in someone else’s life beautiful.
I am the Co-Founder of BridalVision, where I serve bridal store owners as Chief Financial Guide and Business Strategist.
My goal is to make the numbers behind bridal store business visual, intuitive, and easy.
I help bridal stores chart a path towards a thriving, impactful business through financial advisory services, accounting, and business intelligence software.
My goal is to provide bridal store owners with the tools, guidance, and community they need to grow their bridal store into their dream business.
