Top 100 Most Influential Wedding Websites of 2015

19th Jul 2015

2015 has been another year of explosive growth in the wedding industry online. To be competitive, wedding writers continue to forge into new micro niches and push the boundaries of creativity in every way imaginable. Although growth was massive yet again, there's still no end in site for the potential increase in wedding niche websites. Every year these creative individuals and organizations find new ways to celebrate brides and grooms that both sway from and add to the traditional approaches of yesteryear. We've put together this year's list of 100 most influential websites for you to get your wedding fix from, including some of the biggest known names and rising stars. Our ranking algorithm is second to none in the history of wedding website rankings so that both the website's publishing team and readers can see who is scoring big with today's audiences. Keep reading for the full rankings of the top 100, complete analysis statistics, and to hear from the wedding masters themselves in their own words.

Ranking Philosophy Explanation

With the continued massive growth of social media outlets, it's no longer enough to base influence on a website or blog. There are so many factors that go into influence online that we had to come up with a much more in-depth algorithm that takes into account not only the number of followers on social media, but also their interaction with the influencers. For example, putting out a million tweets isn't influential unless those tweets resonate with a relevant audience that favorites or retweets them. As for the website, having several inbound links and a high domain authority for your website isn't useful unless your website sees traffic, which we were able to analyze thanks to SEMRush. Other powerful tools that lent a hand to our analysis included Majestic SEO, Moz, Alexa, and Twitonomy.

Each influential site has its own strengths, that's why every ranking factor was divided by a factor to “level the playing field” against other ranking factors. One wouldn't, for example, give a million points for a million Google+ profile views but only 100 points for 100 inbound links from other websites. Then, these leveled numerical statistics were weighted with percentages as to not heavily give credit to just one area of possible influence. You can find the division factors and weights at the bottom of the complete statistics sheet seen below.

*We know that there are many possible additions to the algorithm, but we had to stop somewhere. While Pinterest and Instagram, for example, could easily be seen as important factors, we firmly believe that the trio of Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ represent the most well-rounded view of social media influence.

Words of Wisdom from the Top 100

Since we began this ranking project almost 2 months ago, we've been in constant communication with as many influential online wedding professional as possible. Many of these generous individuals and organizations have answered questions we felt true fans and up-and-coming wedding writers would want to know the answers to. Now we give you the opportunity to hear from these wonderful trendsetters and creative individuals directly about how they got into writing and what advice they have for anyone interested in joining such an enjoyable niche.

TheKnot.com

#1: TheKnot.com – Ivy Jacobsen, Associate Editor - @theknot

My love for weddings actually started in college when I worked part-time in a bridal boutique. That's where I learned how to listen to what brides and couples want and what goes into looking for a wedding dress, from the stress and anxiety down to the designer, fabric and every last button on the bustle. A few years later, I combined my love of weddings and writing into my dream job as an editor for The Knot, where I now listen to what brides and couples want on a larger level, and write planning and features stories that answer and explain every wedding planning situation.

Much of wedding planning is actually psychological and emotional (Where do I seat my uncle who doesn't get along with everyone? Will I hurt my friend's feelings if I don't ask her to be the maid of honor? Should I walk down the aisle with someone else since my dad passed away?), so what I love is connecting with The Knot's readers on a close level to help them plan the most memorable day of their lives -- and encourage them to embrace any imperfections along the way, too. The Knot is, simply put, a couple's best friend when wedding planning, and is truly with you every step of the way.  

bridalmusings.com

#13: BridalMusings.com - Elizabeth Muhmood Kane & Claire Byrne - @BridalMusings

Thanks so much, it's so kind of you to include us on your list. Elizabeth set up Bridal Musings after falling hard for weddings while planning her own big day and I (Claire) joined three years later as Editor. 

We love helping couples plan their best day ever, and it's also pretty incredible to surround ourselves with gorgeous blooms, stunning gowns and creative ideas - and get to call it our day jobs!

Our advice for anyone setting up a wedding blog? The wedding blog community is such a warm and friendly one, so be sure to reach out to others for advice and support.

MagnetStreet Weddings#14: MagnetStreet.com - Heidi Markgraf - @MagnetStreetWed

What made you decide to start writing about weddings?

Truly Engaging is the wedding blog of MagnetStreet Weddings. We love having this very inspirational avenue for featuring real weddings and engagement sessions—especially from our very own couples. The blog is also an important outlet for showing off new products, fun wedding ideas, and of course, wording tips for wedding stationery suite items.

What is your favorite part about writing and being in your niche?

Weddings are wonderful! Getting married and planning for it is a magical time in life. I love that I get to read and write about them every day.

Do you have any advice for people hoping to start a wedding website or blog of their own?

Be yourself. Be engaging. Be kind. Share great finds. Reach out to others.

GreenWeddingShoes

#17: GreenWeddingShoes.com – Jen Campbell - @grnweddingshoes

What made you decide to start writing about weddings?

I started Green Wedding Shoes in 2008 to share with engaged couples weddings that would truly inspire them - couples planning a wedding day that was a true reflection of themselves. We love sharing weddings with standout fashion, unique + personal details, gorgeous venues and stunning photography. We receive between 300-500 submissions a month and select the best of the best to share with our readers. We love mixing our features to share small, intimate elopements, backyard weddings and weddings with some of the best + most creative in the industry to really give our readers a unique perspective of what their day can be.

What is your favorite part about writing and being in the wedding niche?

I love getting a peek into a couple's special day and sharing the photos + story from behind the day. Brainstorming new trends with our team and getting to share those in the form of a styled editorial we produce is also another one of my favorite parts of running the site.

RusticWeddingChic

#19: RusticWeddingChic.com – Maggie Lord - @rusticwedchic

What made you decide to start writing about weddings?

A self confessed wedding junkie since the age of 13, Maggie Lord loves the romance and beauty of weddings. Passionate about the rustic style and eager to share her discoveries and ideas while planning her lakeside wedding at her family’s summer cabin in Northern Wisconsin she started blogging. Now RusticWeddingChic.com has become the number one online resource for rustic & country weddings.

What is your favorite part about writing and being in the wedding niche?

RusticWeddingChic.com grew out of a very organic place for me - I was currently planning my own rustic chic style wedding in 2008 and I was not finding much inspiration online. I knew if I was looking for this type of site other brides were too - so I started Rustic Wedding Chic. I love being able to show off so many different types of rustic weddings which include everything from country style weddings and lakeside weddings to vintage chic affairs and barn weddings.

Do you have any advice for people hoping to start a wedding website or blog of their own?

Don't start a blog to make money, it is very difficult to create a blog that actually produces revenue. If you are passionate about a subject like I was with rustic weddings then you will find enjoyment in blogging. 

Sonia Collett

#23: WantThatWedding.co.uk – Sonia Collett - @wantthatwedding

What made you decide to start writing about weddings?

Taking my own wedding vows and planning my own wedding made me realise I'm a total wedding obsessive. I'm a lover of style and a sucker for love.

What is your favorite part about writing and being in the wedding niche?

Who wouldn't love being a small part of a couple's big day. Designing pretty mood boards and blogging real weddings is so much more fun that producing spreadsheets. Plus I love hearing all about those romantic details and sharing with my readers...

Do you have any advice for people hoping to start a wedding website or blog of their own?

Don't over think it as you'll never start - learn the basics and just get on and do it! You learn as you go and you improve with age.

BurnettsBoards

#27: BurnettsBoards.com - Sara Burnett - @BurnettsBoards

What really made me start a wedding blog was the fact that I've always been drawn to weddings - they're fabulous, heart-felt parties with one heck of a glamorous dress. It truly was the fashion & event design that pulled me in and that's what my blog focuses on. I rarely publish real weddings, mostly inspiration shoots because that's where the true creativity comes out. Seeing wedding vendors really go to town and design outside of the box, without the constraints of a bride's desires. I like to showcase new, exciting, and never-before-seen wedding designs, ones that show brides that they can be as unique as they want to be and not just a copy of everybody else!

Carrie Junebug Weddings

#29: JunebugWeddings.com - Carrie Crooks - @junebugweddings

What made you decide to start writing about weddings?

I love how happy and sentimental weddings are more than anything. While the decor and fashion are fun, it's the emotions and story behind the big day that captivate me the most!

What is your favorite part about writing and being in your niche?

Working with extremely creative and inspiring people who love their jobs!

Do you have any advice for people hoping to start a wedding website or blog of their own?

Find your voice and be different! Create truly original and authentic content and share gorgeous photos with your readers. They're looking for inspiration and advice they can't get anywhere else, and it's up to you to give it to them!

Thanks so much for putting this awesome report together -- it's pretty cool to see how we all rank compared to each other. There were some surprises on that list for sure!

Southern Weddings

#31: SouthernWeddings.com – Lisa Kirk (& Southern Wedding Gals) - @iloveswmag

What made you decide to start writing about weddings? 

Southern Weddings began in 2008 as a way to show brides in the South all of the creative, innovative things happening in the greater wedding industry. Since then, it has completely flipped on its head, and is now a place to share the magic of the South and Southern weddings with the rest of the world! Southern brides cherish family, heritage, and tradition, and we love the meaningful ways they incorporate these things into their weddings. We're inspired by our sweet brides every single day! 

What is your favorite part about writing and being in the wedding niche? 

While we think details are nice, we believe that true love always, always wins. Our favorite part of writing about weddings is the opportunity to read and share beautiful, real life love stories! We believe strong marriages can change the world, and being able to see and learn about the beginnings of so many amazing marriages is something we truly cherish. 

Do you have any advice for people hoping to start a wedding website or blog of their own? 

Weddings are about more than flowers, dresses, or cakes, as lovely as those things may be. If you're interested in writing about weddings, we encourage you to look beyond the details to what a wedding really is: the beginning of a marriage!

Polkadotbride

#45: Polkadotbride.com – Ms. Polka Dot - @polkadotbride

What made you decide to start writing about weddings?

I always loved weddings, since I was little and borrowed wedding magazines from our local library. Being a kid of the inert. I wanted a place to share what I loved about Australian weddings. ideas that are unique, that I thought could inspire couples and ultimately get back to our mission statement- inspiration couples to create weddings uniquely theirs.

What is your favorite part about writing and being in the wedding niche?

I love writing! But i love that I get to pour over beautiful weddings each day and hear the stories that go along with it. People put their heart and soul into their wedding days and to be immersed in that all day is a pretty happy place to be.

Do you have any advice for people hoping to start a wedding website or blog of their own?

Start it because you love it- not for money or fame or anything else but love. When everything else fades away, the love of what you do is what gets you out of bed.

Wedding Inspirasi

#49: WeddingInspirasi.com - Nona Goh - @weddingi

I've always loved fashion and weddings. Wedding Inspirasi started as a place where I could collect all the international designers and bridal collections that inspired me. This was back in 2008, before the advent of Pinterest and Instagram. Since then, Wedding Inspirasi has organically grown into a go-to resource for brides looking for fashionable inspiration from around the world.

My advice to anyone starting a blog of their own -- whether or not it's a wedding website -- is to do it simply because you love it. A lot of hard work goes into running a blog as a business, but there's nothing quite like the feeling of looking forward to "work" everyday because it's something that you enjoy so much!

Bespoke Bride

#56: Bespoke-Bride.com – Emily Pettiford & Jessica Turley - @Bespoke_Bride

What made you decide to start writing about weddings?

We launched our blog in 2011, as a personal way to journal quirky and creative wedding photography, decor & DIY’s. Jess & I had startup wedding businesses and had wanted to document our own journey into the world of weddings. Over time we realised we were beginning to spend more time blogging and as our own passion for our own independent business fizzled out, the blog became our main focus. We wanted to create a platform where we could share the weddings we had come to love, those that were detailed, original, creative and innovative – those that reflected the true personality and character of the couples themselves!

What is your favorite part about writing and being in the wedding niche?

Aside from the fact that we see so many gorgeous couples celebrating the best days of their lives, I would have to say it has to be all the wonderful people we have met along the way and the amazing friends we have made. That is most awesome part of the wedding industry; everyone is so friendly, helpful and passionate about their businesses and their couples. It really is a wonderful thing to be part of!

Do you have any advice for people hoping to start a wedding website or blog of their own?

Our main piece of advice would be to do it for the love of it! If you are writing a blog because you think you should or you think it is a great way to make money you would be wrong! It is incredibly hard to do something you aren’t passionate about, especially if it isn’t making you any money and eventually readers will be able to tell that you aren’t really into it and go elsewhere. If you are serious about blogging, our second piece of advice would be to write about things that you find exciting and interesting. Our biggest mistake when starting out was doing what we thought others would expect of us and our blog almost completely failed because of that. Luckily we realised in the nick of time and was able to turn our blog into what it is today - unique weddings, fun DIY’s, helpful advice and tones of personality. Lastly I would say find your niche. I think for us this came once we started writing about what we were passionate about, whereas others knew immediately where their niche was. Whatever you do just don’t start a blog ripping off the ideas of someone else, it’s already been done so put your own unique spin on it and see where it takes you :)

Or anything else that's important to you! :)

I suppose our last piece of advice would be to couples planning their own weddings, to enjoy it, have fun, dream big and above all else… create the wedding of your wildest dreams! It’s your day after all. Don’t worry about what others expect, instead focus on creating a perfect representation of yourselves and your personalities.

ChicVintageBrides

#60: ChicVintageBrides.com – Amy Elsworth - @CVBrides

What made you decide to start writing about weddings?

Chic Vintage Brides started as a hobby, quickly became a passion and is now by business and my baby. I couldn’t be more proud of all that CVB and I have achieved in the 3 years since I wrote my first post. If I am honest, it is hard to believe it is 3 years, in so many ways I still feel like I have only just started. But to think of how far we have come from my first weeks where I celebrated double digit page views, to having a following of over 4million on Pinterest, a mention in Vogue Paris and of course making the Top 100 Most Influential Wedding Websites! :)

What is your favorite part about writing and being in the wedding niche?

I love what I do! Every morning I wake up feeling lucky that I spend my day doing something I enjoy, that inspires, excites and challenges me – and that allows me to stay home with my 18month old Cockerpoo Bodie. Best of all though are the brides I’ve helped, people I’ve met and friends I have made over the last 3 years. Weddings are such joyful occasions, and every day my life is infused with the same joy by helping brides-to-be bring their wedding dreams to life, by sharing in their big day and by inspiring future brides-to-be. It isn’t just the brides and weddings that make my job though, it’s the other bloggers and businesses. I don’t believe there is another industry in the world that is more friendly, collaborative and well, quite frankly, wonderful!

Do you have any advice for people hoping to start a wedding website or blog of their own?

My advice to people considering starting their own blog would be, don’t think it is easy money, it is anything but! In fact if the only reason you’re doing it is to make money, don’t bother. If however you have found a passion, love meeting and helping people (all be it virtually), enjoy writing, don’t mind a lot of homework (it’s not all pretty pictures and writing – SEO & Social Media cannot be ignored!) and don’t care if you never make any money….. well then welcome to the world of blogging!

WeddingFriends

#61: WeddingFriends.co.za – Christoff Durr - @WeddingFriendSA

Thank you so much for your email. We are thrilled being part of the top 100 Wedding Blogs worldwide.

What made you decide to start writing about weddings?

We have been a wedding supplier for the past 10 years in South Africa. We have become well know for our fashion style wedding film approach to weddings and throughout the years we made a lot of friends in the industry. Our  wedding film business (hauke.co.za) literally took off with all the support of the suppliers. We felt there was a need for a Wedding Blog, that is not only the opinion from the Blogger but from every single high-end supplier in the industry. Therefore on each listing we also tell the bride which suppliers have a great working relationship – a wedding friend:) We showcase all the work of all our members and make sure everyone gets equally the same exposure. We also make sure that each supplier listed is a top performer to guarantee quality listings on the website.

What is your favourite part about writing and being in the wedding niche?

The suppliers involved in each article! It’s a big collaboration of wedding professionals to make that one special day unforgettable.

Do you have any advice for people hoping to start a wedding website or blog of their own?

Find a niche, there are too many mainstream wedding blogs out. To get a good readership you have to offer something new and different.

Or anything else that’s important to you!

We have become the biggest wedding supplier network in South Africa within only 3 years. Growing our business together with other wedding suppliers is our aim. So our readership grew through working together, styled shoots, and our annual networking conference (networkingconference.co.za). As we also own a website business so we can always stay on top of the latest trends and make changes for a better wedding blog experience.

EquallyWed

#62: Equallywed.com – Kirsten Ott - @equallywed

What made you decide to start writing about weddings?

We began the planning for EquallyWed.com in 2008 when my partner proposed to me and there were no modern media outlets offering coverage of same-sex couples planning their weddings. I didn't see couples like my wife and I out there, and it was hurtful, not to mention not helpful. Since I am a magazine writer and editor, and my partner is a graphic designer and web developer, we decided to do something about the problem. We created EquallyWed.com to give back to our community and create a solution. That's how I became involved in the wedding industry, and I've loved it ever since!

Do you have any advice for people hoping to start a wedding website or blog of their own?

My advice for starting a wedding website or blog is to find your own edge. Don't be a copy cat. It's obvious when you do everything someone else is already doing but just change one little thing to avoid copyright infringement. Be your own kind of beautiful.

whimsicalwonderlandweddings

#63: WhimsicalWonderlandWeddings.com – Louise Baltruschat - @W_W_WeddingBlog

Whimsical Wonderland Weddings was founded by Louise Baltruschat in April 2010, whilst planning her own wedding day. From personal musings and a place bookmark her wedding finds, it grew into a resource followed by couples. When devastatingly Lou and her fiancé decided to cancel their wedding 6 weeks before hand (due to health problems), she could not bear to say goodbye to Whimsical Wonderland Weddings and the community she had established. So she continued in her quest to assist and inspire other couples and to promote the amazing UK wedding industry.

What is your favorite part about writing and being in the wedding niche?

Seeing love filled weddings and happy couples every single day. Not to mention viewing beautiful photography, chatting to super lovely wedding folk and reading beautiful love stories. There is nothing better than a couple getting in touch to say that WWW helped to plan their day, it gives me goosebumps every time.

Do you have any advice for people hoping to start a wedding website or blog of their own?

Do it! Find your unique blog name or niche and get writing. Sign up to all the relevant social networks and get to know the wedding world inside and out. Be sure to do it for the fun of it and it will shine through in your writing. Starting WWW is one of the best decisions I ever made.

Inspired Bride

#64: InspiredBride.net – Ash Metry - @inspiredbride

What made you decide to start writing about weddings?

We're a team, I wish I can take full credit to everything on the blog but we are story tellers and we believe that every picture we feature has an untold story and we love telling that story.

What is your favorite part about writing and being in the wedding niche?

We love helping brides-to-be be best prepared for their big day.

Do you have any advice for people hoping to start a wedding website or blog of their own?

To be honest I am biased but I think they should check out nearlyweds.com. A great place to find wedding websites that matches their paper invitations, share updates & photos about their story as well as offer some nice tools to organize and manage RSVPs.

Black Bride

#71: Blackbride.com – Mary Chatman and The Team - @BlackBride

What made you decide to start writing about weddings?

Black Bride was established to serve an under-represented market segment: women of color. The brand was launched in 1998 to fill this void. Women of color are major contributors to the $160-Billion wedding industry but have minimal presence online, on TV, fashion runways and in most bridal print publications. Black Bride fills this void and exemplifies love in more than one shade. We believe that all women, regardless of race or ethnicity are beautiful in their own light.

What is your favorite part about writing and being in the wedding niche?

We are love and marriage advocates. We absolutely love sharing the love stories! Our audience is excited and has come to expect to see women that look like them featured in the best light. We love sharing daily bridal inspiration on our blog and in our semi-annual digital magazine.

Do you have any advice for people hoping to start a wedding website or blog of their own?

The first thing you have to figure out is, do you have a passion for the industry and be prepared to weather the storm if you're planning to blog for business. Get educated, really get to know your target audience. Follow industry trends and saturate yourself in all things weddings! 

WeddingThingz

#75: Weddingthingz.com – Debbie Collins - @Weddingthingz

Thank you for selecting Wedding Thingz for your list! Here are the answers to your questions.

What made you decide to start writing about weddings?

I started writing about weddings after I planned my wedding. I used to do wedding planning and thought having a blog was a good way to share ideas and information with brides.

What is your favorite part about writing and being in the wedding niche?

My favorite part about writing is actually writing about the pretty images that I put in the posts. I love telling readers about wedding dresses and real weddings. The photos are so beautiful and I love bringing pretty wedding inspiration to brides.

Do you have any advice for people hoping to start a wedding website or blog of their own?

The best advice I can give for anyone starting blog is to write about something you are passionate about. If you are passionate about what you do, it is so much fun and does not seem like work. I would also say to be patient. A good quality blog takes time and is not built in a day.

Mountanside Bride

#77: MountainsideBride.com - Christie Osborne - @mtnsidebride

What made you decide to start writing about weddings?

When I was planning my own wedding way back in 2009, there was no information about mountain weddings on blogs. I only found 1 real mountain wedding in the 7 months I was planning. So after I got married I started the Hindsight Bride. It was a blog dedicated to publishing mountain weddings. I called it the Hindsight Bride because I was blogging in hindsight. A year later a friend of mine suggested I change the name to better reflect my niche and the Mountainside Bride was born.

What is your favorite part about writing and being in your niche?

On a very basic level, I love connecting with other people who love the mountains. I have lived in one mountain town or another for most of my life. The mountains are in my soul and I only truly feel like myself in the mountains. I work closely with both brides and vendors to publish real mountain weddings and wedding planning advice and we all have the call of the mountains in our veins.

On a practical level, because I live in the mountains, I know this environment very well. I know mountain culture is sometimes like beach culture in that it's laid back and vendors are sometimes late to respond. I know that afternoons are rainy in the Smoky Mountains and windy in Colorado. Basically, I know things about mountain weddings that someone in a city or the midwest wouldn't, so I love giving my readers solid information from an insider when it comes to planning a mountain wedding.

Do you have any advice for people hoping to start a wedding website or blog of their own?

Blogging is not a solo endeavor. Figure out who your tribe is and start connecting to them. Whether your a local niche blog or a national blog, start engaging with your tribe on social, commenting on their blogs and finding those private Facebook groups where ideas are shared and questions answered.

Or anything else that's important to you! :)

The wedding blogoshpere is such an amazing community to be a part of. I've had the opportunity to work with smart, positive and inspiring entrepreneurs. While I am truly honored to be on the Top 100 list, such ranking systems sometimes miss the highly collaborative nature of the wedding blogosphere. We support each others goals and projects, encourage each other through obstacles, and share the the funny, extraordinary and heartwarming events in each other's lives. I feel grateful every day to call many of the women on this list my friend.

Knotsvilla

#78: Knotsvilla.com – Gee (Editor) - @knotsvilla

What made you decide to start writing about weddings?

Like a lot of us, right after/during the wedding planning, you invest so much time planning

that you feel knowledgeable enough to share information that would help brides in the future. That was basically my story as well. I got married in June and started blogging in September. In that 3 months of no wedding research/planning, I started to miss it and figured I still had a strong desire to continue in the wedding industry. Because I always had a thing for blogging (at that time, I had been blogging personally for about 5 years), I figured blogging about weddings would be a great and easy way to give back to future brides planning their own weddings.

What is your favorite part about writing and being in the wedding niche?

Favorite part about writing would definitely be the content for me. Because I enjoy writing about weddings, it comes easy to me and feels like a breeze when doing so. Writing about real wedding/love stories, getting to see gorgeous photos of love displayed, basking in the beauty that is found in weddings - hair, makeup, attire, all of these things and more make the content my favorite part of writing in the wedding industry. There are obviously other things I love to write about but clearly, writing as a wedding blogger tops that list.

Do you have any advice for people hoping to start a wedding website or blog of their own?

Oh I think I have way too many, that is why once in a while I try to blog about the business side of being a wedding blogger. For starters, I'd say, make sure you enjoy weddings enough to write about them. It took me 3 months to check that my excitement for weddings wasn't just an in-the-moment-excitement, I had to make sure it was real passion. Without that passion, eventually writing about something would begin to seem like a chore, which in most cases, would lead to the blog shutting down in the near future. But passion is not all there is to it, hard work and commitment gets in that equation too. One may be very passionate about something but without hard work and commitment, it would be very difficult to be successful in it. Successful Blog = Passion + Hard Work + Commitment!

Grooms Advice

#90: GroomsAdvice.com – Chris Easter, Bob Horner, Jimmy Horner - @themanregistry

What made you decide to start writing about weddings?

Back in 2007, the founders of The Man Registry were reaching the age they (along with many friends and family members) were getting ready to tie the knot. The excitement quickly turned to frustration when they realized just how few quality resources existed for men to research wedding planning duties or purchase wedding gifts that didn't have to do with table clothes or fine china. Because of this, The Man Registry was born of necessity -- and their GroomsAdvice blog followed quickly thereafter.

What is your favorite part about writing and being in the wedding niche?

We love creating and sharing wedding content for men because there just isn't that much of it out there. This allows us to put a new spin on old topics!

Do you have any advice for people hoping to start a wedding website or blog of their own?

Always be on top of current trends. This will make or break you as a trusted site for brides and grooms to follow or bookmark.

Katie Martin

#92 & #98: EleganceAndSimplicity.com & Eco-BeautifulWeddings.com – Katie Martin - @GreenWed & @ecobeautiful

What made you decide to start writing about weddings?

We started to blog about weddings as I am a wedding book author and have been doing weddings since 1998.  As an expert in eco-friendly wedding arena, we were one of the very places on the internet where brides and grooms could turn to for ideas.

What is your favorite part about writing and being in the wedding niche?

I just love writing about our niche of eco-friendly wedding design in the wedding industry.  Not many have a true voice in it.

Do you have any advice for people hoping to start a wedding website or blog of their own?

If anyone is starting a new blog – it's best always to write about what you are doing and not regurgitating what is on other websites and blogs.

Tahoe Unveiled

#99 TahoeUnvelied.com – Andria Gutierrez - @TahoeUnveiled

What made you decide to start writing about weddings?

I have been planning weddings for years in Lake Tahoe and realized there was no blog dedicated to these weddings. As a world-class wedding destination, Lake Tahoe weddings deserved to be featured and written about.

What is your favorite part about writing and being in the wedding niche?

The community! We have such an amazing, talented group of men and women in this industry. I am incredibly lucky to be working alongside them.

Do you have any advice for people hoping to start a wedding website or blog of their own?

Yes, the most important thing is to be passionate about weddings, the people and the industry. It will show through in your writing.
