A Bride's Haven
Eight years ago, Harlingen served as the home of a well-known wedding business, simply named Social Situations, which was considered a “one-stop shop” for brides to find everything they need for their special day. When Dona Liston passed on the business to Clara Zepeda-Loera in 2010, the new owner happily took on the responsibility of continuing the shop’s spirit, for every bride that walks through the doors.
A certified wedding and event planner, Clara understands that the beginning of the wedding process may be overwhelming and that some brides may not know where to start, she has set up Social Situations to be the oasis of wedding planning. Along with her reputable coordinating services, Clara is proud to offer her stunning invitations and wedding stationery, a business branch of Social Situations. The variety of possibilities for invitations, menu cards, Save-the-Dates, and ceremony programs has brides happily returning for future celebrations such as baby showers, birthday parties, and anniversaries! To continue with the “one-stop shop” premise, Clara has graciously welcomed vendors she often collaborates with to offer their services on location, especially for those based in the McAllen area and want to give Harlingen brides access to their amazing services. Many of these vendors include florists, photographers, caterers, even gorgeous wedding dresses! It’s this convenience, quality and recognition of important details big and small that has made Social Situations a recognized establishment in Harlingen where brides have found Clara to be a fairy godmother!
