We struggled a lot with how we were going to release the Lookbook via print — the full Fall 2012 Lookbook is 252 pages, making it a *very* unwieldy publication! See the full Lookbook here:

Last Spring we released the print Lookbook for our five major metro areas: San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington D.C., and New York City.

This time, we’re releasing the Lookbook for the four major regions of the United States — West, Midwest, South, and Northeast! Today we’re releasing the Western States edition of the Lookbook on Magcloud — only $25, 100 pages, with over 400 vendors from around the entire US West: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.

We’re so pleased to announce the launch of the Fall 2012 WeddingLovely Lookbook! Today is the one year anniversary of our original Lookbook — featuring only stationers and only a little over 300 listings. Our Spring Lookbook featured a little over 1,000 listings. And today, the WeddingLovely Lookbook features over 1,600 wedding stationers, photographers, planners, venues, and videographers worldwide.

Thanks so much to everyone (vendors, bloggers, friends and family) who have supported us — we hope you enjoy our latest Lookbook!

Edit: We’ve released our print Lookbooks! We’ve split our online Lookbook into four regional versions to both make the cost way lower (since there are less pages) as well as include more of our fabulous US based vendors! See our posts below.

Also, if you’re interested in why we do the Lookbook (we being just me, actually — it’s a one-person project), check out this post: Why our online startup releases a print product, and how we do it.

We are THRILLED to release the Spring 2012 Lookbooks! Last year’s only contained invitations, so seeing this years grow to contain so many more vendors and wedding planning advice is so exciting. The next version will be printed in Fall 2012 and we’d love to make it even better than the Spring edition. We welcome any suggestions, requests, anything, in the comments!

WeddingLovely Lookbook

The Spring WeddingLovely Lookbook is coming!

The WeddingLovely team has a very busy next few weeks as the Lookbook comes together. If you aren’t familiar, we put together the WeddingLovely Lookbook twice a year (spring and fall) which features ALL vendors. So whether you have a basic free profile, or an upgraded profile – you’ll be featured in its pages. Woo hoo! But in addition to our listings, we’re also opening up the pages to advertisers who are not already listed on the WeddingLovely vendor network!

WeddingLovely Lookbook

6 Lookbooks featuring all 5 vendor directories

This spring’s Lookbook will feature over 1,000 wedding vendors! You can see the Fall WeddingLovely Lookbook here. You’ll notice that last year’s version only featured invitations – this year it will contain all five of our vendor directories. We are also doing 5 location specific versions for our larger markets: San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, and Washington D.C.

Just a reminder….

  • All vendors (paid or not) in the WeddingLovely Network will have a listing in the Lookbook.
  • Upgraded vendors will have a 1/2 page spread
  • …and (new for this version) upgraded vendors who have paid for a year’s upgraded account will have a full page spread.
  • The Lookbook will also feature some of the best guest posts from the blog.

Currently looking for advertisers!

If you are in the wedding space and aren’t a current WeddingLovely vendor, here’s your chance to be a part of the Lookbook — or, if you are a current vendor and want some more promotion, this is a great opportunity to get even more press!

Lookbook Advertising

The above prices reflect placement in all 6 versions of the Lookbook. Pretty awesome deal isn’t it? Like last year, the Lookbook will be released online through Issuu (see it here) as well as print-on-demand through Magcloud (see here). The ads in the online version will click directly through to your site (we love SEO!)

If you are interested in placing an ad, you can download this PDF with more information with stats and pricing. And as always, email us if you have any questions!

The advertising deadline is April 23rd and the Lookbook is tentatively slated for release on May 7th.

Last year I decided to try out an experiment. WeddingLovely is dedicated to listing all the best professionals in a beautiful, online setting, so why not bring that to a print magazine?

With over 5,000 views and sales, the Fall WeddingInviteLove Lookbook was a success, and WeddingLovely grew from just listing invitation designers on WeddingInviteLove, to including wedding planners, wedding photographers, videographers, and wedding venues. We’ve grown rapidly — over 3x the amount of vendors since last fall. So of course, it’s time to do it again!

Details for the Spring Lookbook:

  • We will be releasing six versions of the Lookbook — one international super Lookbook that includes all of our vendors in every category (categorized by vertical, then location), and location-specific versions that cover our top 5 areas: San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, and Washington D.C.
  • Like last year, the Lookbook will be released online through Issuu (see it here) as well as print-on-demand through Magcloud (see here).
  • All vendors in the WeddingLovely Network will have a listing in the Lookbook.
  • Upgraded vendors will have a 1/2 page spread
  • …and (new for this version) upgraded vendors who have paid for a year’s upgraded account will have a full page spread.
  • The Lookbook will also feature some of the best guest posts from the blog.

Our plans for promotion:

  • Last fall’s Lookbook received about 5,000 views — and we were less than 1/3 the size we are now. WeddingLovely and our popularity and reach have grown enormously since then, so we expect way higher views for this next version. Woohoo!
  • We will be advertising the Lookbook in several wedding blogs and publications.
  • We will also partner with location-specific bloggers for the location-specific Lookbooks for promotions and giveaways.
  • Not to mention within our own network and social media accounts.

More images from last fall’s lookbook:

Monday, April 9th is the last day we will be adding vendors on the WeddingLovely Network to the Spring Lookbook — if you’re not listed on our directories yet, we’d love to have you apply and you’ll be included in the Spring Lookbook!

We are also accepting advertisers for 1/4, 1/2, and full page advertisements. Email us at [email protected] for details and pricing!

The Lookbook is tentatively slated for release on May 7th. We’re so excited!

 

weddinginvitelove premium lookbook

I released the WeddingInviteLove lookbook through Issuu earlier, and there was an option to buy though a saddlestitched print version through Magcloud. However, the quality of the saddlestitched version wasn’t as high quality that I would have liked, and that’s just not acceptable.

Check out the new print WeddingInviteLove Fall 2011 Lookbook — perfect bound with a heavier cover weight, plus a whole new beautiful photographed cover. I am frankly amazed by the quality of this version and I’m so excited to share this with you!
