Wedding Vendor Directory FAQ
WeddingWire powers the local wedding vendor directory and reviews on GayWeddings.com, the leading online boutique and planning resource for same-sex couples. This partnership will provide your business with an opportunity to expand and reach couples planning same-sex marriages, civil unions and commitment ceremonies.
We’re sure you have some questions about the partnership. Here are answers to some questions you may have:
1) Why is GayWeddings.com joining the WeddingWire Network?
Our goal is simple: We want to increase your business’ online exposure on highly relevant sites to help you reach more engaged couples.
With this new partnership, WeddingWire will power the local vendor directory on GayWeddings.com, making it the most comprehensive directory of LGBT-friendly wedding professionals. As a member of the WeddingWire Community, you will have the opportunity to expand your reach across GayWeddings.com, along with the additional sites in the WeddingWire Network, with just one account.
2) Will all members currently listed in the WeddingWire vendor directory be listed on GayWeddings.com?
Only those businesses who choose to be listed on GayWeddings.com will be displayed. Here are the details:
How to Add Your Business Listing: In order to add your business listing to GayWeddings.com, you have to indicate that you do provide services for LGBT Weddings / Ceremonies in the FAQ Section of your WeddingWire account.
