Bragging Rights: Every aspect of the wedding covered
LoveToKnow Weddings, our #1 choice for the best wedding blog on the web, has been dishing out advice on dress shopping, budgeting, finding the perfect location, maid of honor speeches, wedding favors, and so much more for the past 10 years.
“We try to encompass everything somebody is going to need when they’re getting married,” said Debbie Vasen, Managing Editor of LovetoKnow.com. “If somebody is sitting down to plan a wedding, I can’t imagine we wouldn’t cover everything they would want to think of and things they haven’t thought of.”
Perhaps the most impressive part of LoveToKnow Weddings is the massive amounts of content and subjects covered. Not only is the information vast, but it’s all provided by experts in the field, including wedding planners, event planners, fashion designers, and more, who have real experience and can speak to specific topics users want to learn more about. You can tell the team of writers and editors care about the words on the page and listening to what couples are looking for and adapting to those needs.
LovetoKnow is also looking to expand its wedding offerings with even more product recommendations and DIY, wallet-friendly projects, including printable wedding invitations people can download for free and adjust as they see fit.
“We want to be that resource for anyone planning the event. It’s really like we can be your wedding planner,” Vasen said.
