If you got married in the past few months, you may be experiencing a very real condition known as wedding withdrawal. The symptoms include obsessively looking at your wedding photos, wearing your veil around the house when you’re home alone, and checking to make sure that the top tier of your cake is still in the freezer (and maybe sneaking a taste). However, there is a cure for this condition – it’s all about paying it forward!
Take a few minutes to review your wedding vendors on WeddingWire to help recently engaged couples plan their weddings. You’ll not only be doing a good deed, but you’ll get a free gift, too! If you write two reviews before October 20th, we’ll send you a promo code that you can redeem for a free 8 x 10 easy canvas print. Get a print of your favorite wedding photo to help you relive your amazing wedding day and snap out of that post-wedding funk. Think of it as a wedding present from us.
Is your wedding coming up soon? You can write reviews for your wedding dress, invitation, favor and jewelry vendors and get the free gift as well!
So whether you’re married or engaged, congratulations – and help other engaged couples find their perfect vendors by writing reviews!

The WeddingWire Team
A few members of the WeddingWire team headed up to New York last weekend for Bridal Week, an annual event where all of the top wedding gown designers have exclusive runway shows across Manhattan. Think Fashion Week for weddings!
While a few of us were bouncing around to different private viewings, we also made Pier 94 in Midtown, New York City our home for the weekend. We were thrilled to be the show’s media sponsor this year; providing select designers with a private runway show, and guests of the event some R & R at a chic lounge full of treats from some of our generous partners.
Some of our favorite highlights, and special thanks, from the weekend were:
- WeddingWire hosted 11 designers on a Private Runway in the Fashion Theatre on Friday.
- We invited all of the designers and attendees for a champagne toast and cupcakes on Sunday. The champagne and cupcakes reception was thanks to Georgetown Cupcake Soho.
- Judith Leiber’s creative director Jana Matheson was in our booth for a Q&A on Monday for 2 hours. The Judith Leiber bags were included as part of our Lounge décor for the full weekend so guests had a chance to ooh and ahh over them.
- Our lounge was the spot for guests to “Power Up” and refuel. Along with ‘charging stations’ for laptops and phones, we offered a delicious candy buffet from Just Sweets, and Honest Tea provided a selection of over six teas throughout the weekend to hydrate!
We had an absolute blast and can’t wait for the Spring 2013 Bridal Market event!

Each June, Gay Pride is celebrated at Pride festivals and parades in communities all over the country (and world!). This past Saturday, June 9, WeddingWire and GayWeddings.com celebrated Pride and our partnership with the LGBT community of our Nation’s Capital, with our Wed We Can campaign.
