Hi lovelies,

I’m here with a heavy heart to let you know that I’ll be shutting down WeddingLovely at the end of the year after nearly eight years in business.

I taught myself how to code and launched WeddingLovely by myself in January 2011 because I wanted a wedding vendor directory that focused on local and small businesses. I’ve learned so much from running WeddingLovely and loved all the stories and successes from vendors in our vendor network, and the brides and grooms using our online wedding planner.

Unfortunately, this year we’ve had a lot of problems with revenue due to some major Google SEO changes. I’ve also looked back over the last few years and found WeddingLovely’s features have been out of date and have grown stale, and there have been many new vendor-focused businesses that have launched that do what we’ve been doing and doing it better. And I personally lost my passion for the wedding industry and decided that it’s time for me to spend my focus elsewhere.

I’m still looking at how the business will shut down — at the moment, the plan is to close our properties (https://weddinglovely.com, https://weddinglovely.com/vendors, as well as our specialized directories like https://weddinginvitelove.com and others) at the end of the year. Ideally I’ll keep the blog up so you continue to get traffic to your websites through that, but that may have to close as well when I dissolve the corporation. Regardless, I’ll be in touch with more detail later once everything is figured out.

Thank you to everyone for your support over the years!
-Tracy
