Since its launch on Valentine’s Day 1997, NJWedding.com has made it simple for engaged couples to find services such as local banquet facilities, bands, disc jockeys, photographers, videographers, clergy and wedding officiants, floral designers, limousines, invitations, favors and much more through the Internet in the comfort of their home or office. This local wedding planning web site is now entering its 17th year serving the wedding community on February 14, 2014, announced co-publishers Erik and Beth Kent.
The site currently features a directory listing for each wedding venue or service providers, containing an image, description and contact information so couples can get in touch directly. The Kents are in the process of redeveloping the web site to allow each company to provide more detailed information, create photo albums (to show more about their services or products), include video links, create blog posts with interesting articles, show upcoming events and more! Users of the new site will also be able to post reviews / testimonials for these wedding professionals, allowing more information to be included on each listing, providing couples with a fuller site experience to gather more information on their search for regional wedding services.
NJWedding.com currently features around 500 listings for various types of wedding businesses that couples can choose from, as well as links to helpful articles and other wedding planning tips. Other special features include information about wedding dress designers, virtual tours of banquet facilities, video/music clips from local wedding bands, ceremony musicians, disc jockeys and videographers, a photo gallery showing the creativity of local wedding photographers and free relationship advice from a local marriage expert.
Throughout the years, there have been several additions to the site, including sections on South Asian / Indian Weddings and Same-Sex Weddings (celebrating the legalization of Same-Sex Marriage in New Jersey on October 21, 2013) a listing of upcoming bridal shows and wedding planning events throughout the Tri-state area, and sections focused on planning a beach wedding along the Jersey shore, including specific categories for Cape May and Long Beach Island weddings. Also, NJWedding.com in association with the Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce and the New Jersey Division of Travel & Tourism, is giving away a VIP Experience to the Wedding Road Show on LBI (on Sunday, April 27, 2014) through a special contest.
For wedding professionals, the Kents developed a Business Resource Center, providing links to wedding statistics, trends, “green” and eco-friendly weddings, marriage research, podcasts, blogs, wedding and event industry associations and more. Wedding vendors and engaged couples can also find NJWedding.com on social networking web sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Instagram and YouTube, providing an even greater experience to learn about the world of weddings and connect with members of the New Jersey wedding community. In addition couples and wedding professionals can keep up with additional wedding news through our WordPress BLOG.
