There is great news for Wedding Planners and Wedding related businesses – and with the current economic conditions we can all really use some! Demographically, a large number of U.S. women will be reaching the age range when most get married for the first time. Same sex weddings are also increasing because gay marriage is being legalized in more locations.

Read all about this predicted Wedding Boom and check out the graphs and other visuals including wedding statistics from The Wedding Report – an excellent source of extensive wedding market research. If you are a wedding planner or vendor, be sure to download the Bridal News Networks wedding trends reports because they contain valuable insights into where engaged couples are cutting back and where they are increasing spending.

CLASSY, UNUSUAL GIFT IDEA for the Wedding Couple: Stone Candles

This is especially important for wedding planners, wedding photographers and videographers as that is one area where couples getting married like to cut back – and one that can result in wedding photo horror stories about losing the images from a wedding! Knowing that this is a concern, you can be proactive about addressing this on your Web sites.

If you have a wedding related business or are an affiliate for one, now is the perfect time to ramp up your efforts in Affiliate and  Social Media Marketing.  Our favorite wedding community OneWed declared January 4, 2010 Matrimony Monday. January is the start of the peak wedding planning season with wedding related sales highest in the second and third quarters.

With the economy, many who will be getting married will seek out ways to save money. While some will plan off peak winter weddings, we hope many will find BravoBride. They specialize in new and pre-owned designer wedding dresses, wedding decorations, wedding favors and more.

Welcome Michael,

We hope you will share a link to our Groomsmen Gifts with her husband to be. We have the largest selection anywhere and will do our very best to give them exceptional service.

Another link she might find very helpful is to OneWed. They have the best Wedding Community we have come across as the Wedding Boom post at GrowMap explains in detail.

A Wedding Community provides tools for planning a wedding, finding the best vendors and reading reviews of them, chatting with other couples who are also planning their weddings, and much more.

I’m a wedding coordinator currently working as a consultant for another wedding planning business and I’m thinking of opening my own business. I’m seeking suggestions for a business name, but looking for something catchy and clever. Something that will attract (the right) attention to gain exposure to my business.

Hello Hillary,

Have you considered asking others to help you brainstorm a business name? We would need more details to be able to make suggestions.

I know competition is so ingrained in many people that they don’t believe that those who sell similar products should approve comments in each other’s blogs or collaborate in any way.

That type of thinking is limiting the success of many. You may know that we offer Swarovski Business Card Cases and I know that your store sells Swarovski Gifts.

It just makes sense to offer our respective visitors a greater choice. They might not find exactly what they want in either of our stores but find it on the other. Next time the situation could be reversed.

Although we do ship to the UK, some might be in the UK and find shopping on a UK store that sells in pounds easier than figuring out the exchange rate and buying from the U.S. or the total price might be better from one store over the other depending on the exchange rate and the shipping costs.

By linking to each other or at least approving dofollow comments both our stores and blogs will move up in the search engines and our potential buyers benefit more from our collaboration than from our pretending they could not find us in search engines or on other sites.

I encourage businesses to stop being afraid of competition and start thinking about growing collaborations instead.

Welcome Sarika,

There are always opportunities for those who are willing to pay attention and change strategies. The refusal to move forward is what kills many businesses and their decline paves the way for the success of others.

Hello Joya,

This photo has become VERY popular. I recently saw that the One Wed Blog had also used it in one of their posts. That is the good thing about the Internet; what is very interesting spreads so that more can enjoy it.

For me as for wedding coordinator, this information is very useful. Especially liked the statistics. Never would have thought that in the 80’s there were more weddings than now.

Hello Derby,

Be sure to check out the trends because they give some important indicators about what those who are planning weddings today are doing differently. By knowing what they want wedding coordinators can please their clientele without reducing their own incomes.

Wouldn’t it make sense for wedding coordinators and wedding planners to create a relationship with specific vendors? By doing that they would come to know the offerings better and know how each vendor works so they can get faster and better service for the clients.

Executive Gift Shoppe would love to work regularly with wedding planners and coordinators. We know what products are most popular and make it far easier for you to offer them in person or on your site.

Wedding planners and coordinators would benefit by increasing their own income while providing even better service to their customers. I’m working on a post right now about the most popular groomsmen gifts similar to the series I did for the holidays. You may find it useful.

Hello readbud,

Yes there are and we hope you’ll consider our Gift Affiliate Program for weddings and any other site. Almost any blogger has the opportunity to suggest gift ideas throughout the year to their readers.

On Mother’s Day or Father’s Day or any other holiday many bloggers write about personal things or what they like. There is no reason that can not include affiliate links. It won’t make very much money for most but there is nothing unethical about only recommending what you truly like.

I would create a better world to have people focusing on promoting real products and services they can honestly recommend instead of all the get-rich-quick ideas many fall into that do not work.

Pay to click and pay to read type programs are part of the broken advertising system of generating non-converting traffic to increase what a site can charge other people for non-converting advertising. That is not a good business model at all.

Wedding affiliates hey? I didn’t know that either. I’ll do a bit more research into this niche as I’d imagine there would be quite a bit of revenue to be made!

Welcome Adam,

Weddings are a HUGE niche and we hope you’ll work with us on it. We have an excellent Gift Affiliate Program with an exceptional Affiliate Manager.

Adam continually send out new creatives, banners, coupons and ideas to all our affiliates. He even includes each affiliate’s links in weekly newsletters so all the affiliate has to do is copy and paste them into their site.

Between my knowledge of what sells best and creating custom top selling spreadsheets and his knowledge of what works best for affiliates you would have a huge advantage.

I’m curious about how people in Australia, the UK and other locations where English is spoken target their links and do SEO. I noticed you did not include any reference to location in your chosen anchor text so I’m assuming that most Internet users have still not started qualifying their searches with locations.

I had no idea January was a wedding boom season. Maybe the snow was attractive to newly weds that wanted white photographs?

Hello,

January isn’t when they get married – it is when all the brides who got proposed to over the holidays start planning their spring and summer weddings.

I hope this is right. I hadn’t noticed any drop in business until now. So hopefully it picks back up soon. Otherwise I might have to get another side job to supplement myself.
