Bridal Guide relaunches website offers wedding promotions to help celebrate

By Paul Pannone

One of the première wedding magazines in the United States, Bridal Guide, has been busy revamping their reputation and updating services since moving to new offices in 2013 . The move specifically targets wedding couples who still enjoy reading a magazine but are also tech savvy. The staff at Bridal Guide is always listening to its advertisers and making the necessary changes to keep up with demands that go along with engaged couple’s hectic work schedule and limited time to research the latest wedding trends that will make their event a success.

Besides verified reach across all markets, the publication also holds a formidable digital presence, offering added value incentives to advertisers. Their active promotions online and growing interest in Social Media formats from engaged women help guide them through a confusing wedding planning process.

On Tuesday, January 20, celebrity supporter Lorenzo Lamas, currently on Celebrity Apprentice, will embark on a press tour and announce a contest featured on bridalguide.com for one military couple to win a $30,000+ dream wedding in Texas. This month-long contest will be actively promoted on the Today Show and other media outlets.

Less than 10 days Until 16 Couples tie the knot on 16 Bahama Islands

By Paul Pannone

Beginning January 16, 2015 at 1600 hours, 16 couples from the United States (America) will get married on 16 Islands of The Bahamas. “The campaign, launched last year in the United States when couples were invited to enter a competition to have an all-expense paid wedding in The Bahamas.

At the time, it was said a great outcome would be to have 400 people enter the competition. However, the Ministry of Tourism is delighted to report “Over 3,000 couples entered, which had to be narrowed down to 16 winning couples,”  according to Joy Jibrilu, Director General of Tourism for the Bahamas. According to the director general, the popularity and quality of the promotion is well-known and regarded as the most innovative campaign launched by the Ministry of Tourism.

eWedNewz has been watching the campaign since it began last summer. Overseeing the promotion, Jacqueline Johnson of Marry Caribbean.com has been meticulously monitoring each step of the process, dealing with the selection of featured vendors and which 16 couples out of thousands were chosen to take their vows next week. “It’s been a very pleasant experience dealing with our vendors, who’ve shown their professionalism and ability dealing with selected couples, making sure every detail is perfectly executed,” said Johnson today.

Among the participating vendors, Mon Cheri Bridals  has been busy outfitting the brides in new designs for the destination events. Owner and head of the company, Steve Lang told eWedNewz he’s already busy with designs and marketing for next season but is overseeing the Caribbean promotion with plans of expanding the company’s involvement.
