yegwed vendor community

edmonton wedding vendor networking

one of the most rewarding elements of this whole adventure has been getting to know so many rad edmonton wedding vendors. one of the biggest reasons that yegwed was started was a hope to tap in to the community of forward-thinking wedding vendors in edmonton who value collaboration over competition. well, that hope has become reality time and time again as i meet incredibly kind and generous wedding photographers, florists, invitation designers, rental companies, venue managers… there are hundreds of gems in edmonton’s wedding industry! and for that, i want to say a huge THANK YOU!! yegwed would be nothing without the kindness and support of so many of you.

wondering how to get involved? we facilitate a private facebook group for wedding vendors – click here to join. we share occasional tips and tricks about blogging and social media for business, right to your inbox. we’d love to have you!

we also had a vendor social in april – it was a chance for all of our industry friends get together to hang out, eat, drink and get to know each other better. the event sold out in four days (WOW! we were not expecting that…), and was a really, really fun time. thank you to everyone who came, and to those who hung out on the waiting list, hoping for a chance to come. next time (yes, there will be a next time!) we’ll be in a much bigger venue, so every single one of ya can come! sign up for the vendor community here to be the first to know about our next social.

what’s next…

well, it’s a little while away yet, but we are so looking forward to re-launching yegwed.com with a new website design! we would love to hear your feedback about what you’d like to see in the new and improved site, so send your ideas to stacey@yegwed.com. when the site re-launches, you better believe we’ll be having a launch party, and some sweet giveaways – so stay tuned!

in September, we’ll be hosting a workshop for wedding vendors on blogging for your wedding business – after 10 years of blogging, and writing about 500 blog posts for wedding businesses in the past three years, i’d love to start passing on some of that hard-earned knowledge onto others. you know i’ll let you know details as they are confirmed.

again, thanks a million, edmonton wedding community – you guys rock! 

p.s. we’re looking for regular contributors! do you know someone who can write 1-4 posts per month, and is passionate about edmonton or weddings, or both? have them email stacey@yegwed.com 🙂
