WeddingWire is one of the fastest growing wedding
and event companies in the country.
They say that "necessity is the mother of all invention" which is exactly why WeddingWire was created: to create efficiency and transparency in the wedding and event planning space.
While planning his own wedding in 2005, Tim (CEO) became aware of the remarkable inefficiency in today's wedding market.
With engaged couples continually struggling to find the vendor that best suits their needs and vendors constantly searching for new ways to expand their businesses online, Tim and his 3 friends (Jeff Yeh - CTO, Lee Wang - COO, and Sonny Ganguly - CMO) set out to solve this persistent disconnect and provide both parties with simple, yet productive, channels to interact.
WeddingWire was created with the vision of infusing technology into the wedding and event industry.
In less than five years, WeddingWire has become the largest online marketplace marrying supply and demand by connecting local merchants with engaged couples.
For engaged couples
, WeddingWire is the category leader in local business reviews (think "Yelp of Weddings"), offering the ability to search, compare and book over 200,000 recently reviewed wedding vendors, from wedding venues
to wedding photographers
WeddingWire also offers a comprehensive suite of online planning tools for weddings
, including wedding websites
and wedding checklists
, all at no charge.
WeddingWire is about helping brides and groom execute efficiently and effectively on their weddings.
For wedding vendors
, WeddingWire is the only all-in-one marketing platform for businesses online and on-the-go.
WeddingWire offers one comprehensive, self-service platform to reach prospective clients on web and mobile, schedule online appointments, manage multi-media assets, improve search visibility, manage social media and network with other local merchants.

Over 100,000 merchants have adopted the WeddingWire platform and continue to leverage the feature set to help grow their business online.
Building off their success in the weddings platform, WeddingWire has recently expanded into adjacent event verticals with the launch of EventWire.com, MitzvahWire.com, PromWire.com, and more.
With this expansion, WeddingWire continues to develop its local technology platform and looks to bring existing merchants additional offerings in 2012 and beyond.
