Conduit Your Wedding Bells
Every bride knows it takes at least six months to plan the perfect wedding. Summer brides – it’s time to gather your seating charts, song lists, and menus and wishlists and place them all in a safe place – your browser.
WeddingWire is all about simplifying your wedding planning by leveraging technology. Whether looking for information about a specific vendor, comparison shopping across vendors, requiring robust and intuitive management tools, or just wanting to connect with other engaged couples to share and collaborate, WeddingWire seeks to provide best-in-breed solutions to ease the entire wedding planning process, connecting engaged couples with vendors that meet their specific needs.
For engaged couples, WeddingWire provides planning efficiencies of tremendous value. Since the majority of engaged couples are planning their first wedding, few have the experience of planning at such detail. Couples are also able to save time and money by planning the wedding on their own (rather than working with a wedding planner), and online social networking satisfies an emotional need to connect with other couples also planning their big days.
The custom conduit created and offered by WeddingWire allows the site to deliver all the information couples may need for a successful event and place it at their fingertips at all times. Using the WeddingWire conduit, couples can easily connect with the best vendors and use the conduit as a bookmarking tool, a research companion, comparison engine and idea genie all- in-one.
The WeddingWire conduit, offers best-in-breed, online search, project planning, and community tools for assisting with the wedding planning process. Members can log in to their dashboard and access the site’s “My Planner” feature (including custom checklists, budget, vendor manager, guest list, seating charts, timeline, and inspiration boards).
The WeddingWire reports that the conduit (launched June 2009) is already accessed by 30% of its users on a daily basis, providing couples with valuable content when they need it most.
