We’ve been so excited watching the WeddingLovely Blog grow in pageviews and uniques — we love working on this blog and it’s so great you think so too!

We’re running a winter super duper sale for advertising — sidebar advertising starts at just $5/month and we also have a special deal on running partnered posts! Interested? Email [email protected] for our media kit with traffic stats and rates!

WeddingLovely.com, our online planning and wedding website web app, is doing something a bit different in the world of weddings — we’re charging up front (starting at $14.99 per month) rather than creating revenue through advertisements. It’s always been my biggest pet peeve with wedding companies, where so many websites are chock full of advertisement and spam — we wanted to give our best, most useful, and unbiased advice and information about planning your wedding, without worrying about promoting advertisers!

This system also makes it easy for us to reward referrals, and I’m happy to announce the launch of our referral program today! Quite simply, if you sign up for a unique referral link:

  • Every person you refer receives a 33% off coupon to WeddingLovely.com
  • And you get 10% of what they paid. So if someone pays $79 in our pay once tier, you get $7.90. For our monthly subscriptions, you’ll receive 10% for every month for 12 months — up to $18 per referral!
  • If engaged and using WeddingLovely.com already, even better — if you refer 5 new accounts to us, we’ll refund your account, so you’ll get WeddingLovely for free as well!

If you haven’t used WeddingLovely.com and want to check it out before referring, just let me know at [email protected] and I can set you up with a test account for free.

Sign up for your unique link here and start sharing today!

Thanks to everyone for supporting WeddingLovely! We’re so excited.

Check out what’s happening this Saturday in San Francisco! The Unveiled Bridal Style Revealed show will be at the Metreon from 11am to 3:30pm, featuring a Vera Wang Bridal runway show and vendors from all over Northern California.

Tracy will be heading to the event with her camera and documenting the amazing vendors for posts next week, but you should come see the show in person too! Tickets are $30, buy them here. Hope to see you there!

We are thrilled to be a group of three! Tracy called upon her lovely friend and awesome photographer, Karly, to take some official team pictures of us. The rain that’s been pretty regular over the last few weeks decided to cooperate with us on Friday, so we took full advantage and headed to a local garden. We had so much fun, here are some of my favorites from the day…along with a few silly ones. Thank you so much, Karly!

This is pretty much the best thing ever — WeddingLovely is now THREE lovely ladies! A very dear friend of mine and kick butt engineer, Julia Grace, is joining the WeddingLovely team as CTO. What does this mean? We now get to focus on all the awesome new features we’ve had planned for all of our properties (our wedding planning newsletters, our directories, and this blog!) and get them out even faster. Stay tuned for more announcements!

We’ve also redesigned the WeddingLovely website in honor of this momentous occasion…

Check out the website and poke around for a bit — tell us what you think about the redesign and give Julia a warm welcome in the comments!

Team WeddingLovely spent our Valentine’s Day with a great group of women at Women 2.0’s PITCH Conference. There were close to one thousand female tech entrepreneurs, engineers, designers, investors and supporters, how awesome is that? We listened to many great speakers, had inspiring conversations and met some truly talented and intelligent women. It was a long day, but Tracy and I were able to talk to so many people about WeddingLovely. We received so much wonderful feedback and some really great suggestions that we hope to start implementing over the next few months. Yay!

We want to give a shout out and an extra-big thank you to the team at Locally Grown Weddings (also a group of female entrepreneurs!). They were nice enough to provide a beautiful bouquet of organic daffodils and mini cupcakes (gluten-free lemon with Grand Marnier buttercream… yum!) for our table. We were so proud to feature one of our vendors at our table. After all, that’s what we are all about: spreading our vendor love!
