FAQ

Q- How can I make sure I am using all the tools and opportunities I get with Brides & Weddings?

A- use this checklist to see what you can do to maximize your visibility: https://pwliving.wufoo.com/forms/z1dr88fc0kj65wn/ 

Q- Where do I get the monthly Bridal list? * While the list is still available, the pandemic caused bridal shows and venues to close, limiting the number of engaged couples that have OPTED IN to share their info with you. To help, we have made the following enhancements:

  • Changed the Bridal buzz email that previously went out monthly to weekly and rotate your sponsored stories or submitted blogs to our list of 8,000 brides (those that did not OPT-IN to share their email address directly with you.)
  • Offered an additional sponsored story to each client to help with getting your message out to engaged couples. contact David at Admin@bridesandweddings.com for more information

Q- I had a bride tell me she doesn’t want to be contacted.

A- All of the names we receive, entered a contest, asked for a Brides & Weddings planning guide, or attended a bridal show.  At that time, whether they remember it or not, they gave permission to be contacted by us and our vendors. We are more than happy to remove their information.  Each month inside the Monthly Bridal List folder, we post a word doc with anyone who has contacted us to be removed. Please add the name of the bride on this list or email Rebecca at rebecca@bridesandweddings.com so we can add it.

Q- I’m not sure I understand my invoice. Who do I talk to about my bill?

A- Our invoices are produced by QuickBooks and use best accounting practices.  Both your payment and your balance show on the invoice.
