Hey there wedding industry folks and friends 🙂 This post is especially for you… and I hope it will give you a nice few minutes’ respite from your editing caves and pre-Christmas creating frenzy!

Last week I took a long, hard look at the sponsor packages for English Wedding, and added a ‘middle’ option to give you more than a simple Directory listing; without paying the full price for annual sponsorship. It kind of seemed silly to have a £50 option and a £550 option with nothing in-between! So we now have a £15 per month advertiser package to help smaller creative wedding businesses become a part of English Wedding.

We already had Tier 1 – the basic listing

A visual listing in the English Wedding Directory, where clicks on your banner go straight to your website. This comes with 1 insta share + 1 facebook share when you join, and a mention (with backlink) on the blog, in my regular roundup of new members.

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all having lovely days so far. I’m hopping between pet-sitting, calligraphy-writing and baking brownies… but I had to get this wedding blog feature published for you all as well. No rest for the wicked*, as they say!

This is one of two features about blog advertising which I’ve been pondering for some weeks. I wrote in June about wedding blog advertising working if you get it right. It’s also true that advertising on wedding blogs works better for some businesses than for others.

My experience, and feedback from my own advertisers as well as wedding suppliers who’ve advertised on other blogs all tells me that…

Wedding blog advertising works best for new businesses

There are reasons for this:

  1. New wedding businesses are often those with new ideas, and blog readers are always looking for that special something which is original, different and will be a talking point at their big day. It’s about creativity and having a niche product which appeals to a free-thinking bride or groom.

Hi everyone! I hope you had an amazing long weekend – those of you who partied till you were red, white and blue in the face, what did you get up to? Those of you who had to work over the weekend have my sympathy (I was writing wedding calligraphy orders too!)

new wedding businesses on english wedding blogNow, do you remember just over a week ago I decided to try something new, and asked new wedding businesses to comment on the blog and tell us all about themselves? I had a fantastic response – probably because I offered three winners a month’s free sidebar advert on English Wedding Blog. Those three winners are here: meet my new favourite wedding suppliers for June!
