Background and additional information

WeddingLovely already has several specialized wedding vendor directories, starting with WeddingInviteLove.com for wedding invitation designers and stationers and including others such as WeddingPhotoLove.com for wedding photographers and WeddingVenueLove.com for wedding venues. The WeddingLovely Vendor Guide automatically pulls in the listings from these directories.

"Launching our vendor guide means we can both promote the amazing wedding vendors we already work with on our specialized wedding vendor directories on one property," said Tracy Osborn, founder and CEO of WeddingLovely, "as well as opening up to vendor categories we weren't working with before, such as wedding dress retailers and others."

Wedding vendors listed on the WeddingLovely Vendor Guide are also listed within WeddingLovely's online wedding planning guide. Couples who use the guide ($9.95/month or $79 one-time fee, with a 14 day trial) will get local wedding vendor suggestions alongside tips and advice for completing wedding tasks (such as how find the perfect wedding photographer) as well as a wedding website.

Wedding vendors interested in joining the WeddingLovely Vendor Guide must apply to be reviewed. The founder of WeddingLovely, Tracy Osborn, personally reviews every application. If approved, vendors can choose either a free basic account, or a $25/month professional account with 10% discount if purchased annually. Professional accounts come with additional features such as profile branding opportunities, more exposure in search pages, as well as opportunities for additional promotion on the WeddingLovely Blog.
