A wedding planning guide for Northeast Pennsylvania
Wedding planning for those in Wilkes-Barre, Scranton and surrounding areas may have just gotten a little easier with the introduction of an all-in-one online wedding planning guide.
GettingMarriedinNEPA.com recently launched is online wedding directory, targeted toward those planning a wedding in the Wilkes-Barre and Scranton areas of Northeast Pennsylvania.
A selection of category pages link users to every Wilkes-Barre and Scranton area wedding service imaginable: wedding gowns, wedding favors, local wedding reception sites, tuxedo rental, transportation (limos and more),wedding DJs, wedding bands, ceremony officiants, caterers, tent and toilet rental and more.
The wedding guide was a much-needed service says the site's creator.
"Newly engaged myself, I turned to the web for local information. There was nothing comprehensive. My goal is to create the most comprehensive and maintained list of wedding service providers in Wilkes-Barre, Scranton and surrounding areas," said the site's webmaster.
She adds that the key to making GettingMarriedinNEPA.com as jam-packed with wedding listings as possible is to offer listings free of charge.
"I feel that for the guide to be respected, used and expansive, I need to include everyone. Every wedding vendor I could find received a complimentary listing. I do offer enhanced listings as a way for vendors to stand out from the rest, and also to cover costs for my time and fees," she said.
She added that she plans to use search marketing through Google and Yahoo to promote the site, as well as other unconventional methods of promotion, such as a MySpace page she already has set up.
"I've found a lot of other wedding vendors on MySpace as I was 'adding friends' so it was very cool to join an existing community," she said.
GettingMarriedinNEPA.com also offers a blog, a community forum, an articles page, a user stories and reviews section and a mailing list. The blog features site news and updates, as well as news relating to weddings in Wilkes-Barre and Scranton, such as bridal shows.
The community forum will allow brides and grooms to be to ask questions of other community members, or just discuss wedding planning ideas. And, GettingMarriedinNEPA.com is currently looking for local wedding stories or reviews of wedding service providers to include on the site.
GettingMarriedinNEPA.com can also be found on MySpace, at www.myspace.com/gettingmarriedinnepa.
