We’ve been sharing the results of our2015 Newlywed Report on the blog, and this week we’re sharing what couples had to say about how they’re planning their weddings. One of the most interesting (though not entirely surprising) things: It turns out wedding planning really is like a part-time job—at their busiest, most couples spend about 15 hours per week planning. And 80% of that time is spent planning online (hopefully on WeddingWire, natch!). Learn more about how couples plan their weddings in the infographic below. And don’t forget to check out our 2015 Newlywed Report for lots of great and useful info!

Ah, New Year’s Eve. The end-of-year holiday known for glitzy dresses, ball drops, and almost all of the highs and lows that go along with any good party. Most people either love it or hate it, but either way we guarantee your wedding will be more fun! Check out our 10 Reasons Why Your Wedding Will Be Better Than New Year’s Eve and see if you agree.

Choosing the right wedding vendors is one of the most important parts of planning your big day – and reading reviews of pros near you is one of the best ways to build your vendor team. WeddingWire is thrilled to announce that we now have over two million reviews submitted by newlyweds and wedding professionals, which is the largest number of reviews on any wedding and event industry site.
What does this mean for you? Well, whether you’re looking for a wedding venue, caterer, photographer, or any other type of vendor, you’ll be able to read even more useful reviews of pros in your area, written by real couples, than anywhere else!
“This is a major achievement for the entire WeddingWire community as it signals a major trend in the wedding space where engaged couples are not only relying on reviews to help make their critical wedding decisions, but are actively giving back to all engaged couples in the future,” said Timothy Chi, CEO of WeddingWire. “This incredible milestone of 2,000,000 vendor reviews helps engaged couples find their perfect wedding vendor team and strengthens the vendors’ online reputation and credibility, which ultimately helps them grow their business.”
Ready to start building your vendor team? Start searching for vendors near you (and reading reviews!) here.
And if you’re recently married, be sure to help other couples plan their weddings by writing your own vendor reviews on WeddingWire (bonus: you’ll be entered to win a $1,000 Amazon gift card with every review you write in December)!
