Happy Friday lovelies, today for Wedding Friday, I want to introduce you to a fabulous marketplace for all things handmade and custom designed just for weddings, The Wedding Mile.com. We had the opportunity to chat with them and asked a few questions about how the site was created, what is their vision and mission, and how can brides find the latest in wedding decor and ideas, and how wedding designers and crafters can set up a shop online.
I have always loved all things arts and crafts and I spend a lot of time on these types of sites. I think a part of me lives vicariously through the artisan that I never became. I also began noticing the proliferation of brides who were paying closer attention to the smaller details…the little accents that ensured their personal style and inspiration was reflected in their wedding. It was clear to me that handmade artisans made perfect partners for these brides because, unlike larger commercial manufacturers, they could cater to special requests and create custom items. It was truly the perfect marriage…pun intended
Brides should expect to be inspired by the original, creative, and beautiful items listed on the site. We also feature content that keeps them up to date on the latest wedding trends, and shortly we’ll be adding new sorting features that allow them to search by color pallette, price range and theme, among other options. Opening a shop is easy, doesn’t require any up front payment information, and includes 3 months free for all new sellers! Artisans can click on this link
and open their store right away. Sellers can expect a robust dashboard with built in SEO prompts, marketing materials, newsletter integration, and an easy uploader for items they may have listed on other marketplaces.
Here are a few samples of the wonderful handcrafted items you will find at The Wedding Mile. Follow them on Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter as well, for fantastic new takes on wedding items for your special day. Happy Friday!
