My Virginia Wedding is a new concept in Wedding Vendor Advertising. We have a low price threshold to allow all wedding vendors to advertise. This then gives brides a wider selection from which to choose. Our research shows that brides want to find local wedding vendors and we are on a mission to help them.
If you are a wedding vendor or have a talent to share with local brides, advertise as a Wedding Vendor.
If you are a bride, then use the Planning Checklist to get organized, read some blog posts, or visit our Real Weddings for inspiration. We even have a free to list Wedding Marketplace where you can buy or sell gently used, nearly new, or vintage wedding apparel and decor. And of course, use the Wedding Vendor Directory!
The idea for My Virginia Wedding came about when Andrea and Alexandra were sharing a beer at a local establishment, looking out at the lovely mountain views, and talking about what a beautiful place it would be for a wedding. That led to the discussion of how gorgeous Virginia is for weddings, how the industry has grown, and the abundance of qualified people in the state that provide wedding services. The problem, they felt, was how much weddings cost in general, and how difficult it is to find vendors who may be non-traditional or smaller vendors who aren’t on large event web sites. The answer to that dilemma is My Virginia Wedding. Our goal is to offer a comprehensive directory to serve all brides, no matter what their budget. We want to include all vendors, large and small, who offer wedding services in Virginia.
