SEATTLE WA – Wedcoupon.com launches local wedding service offerings in Seattle today, providing members access to daily, local, wedding-related sales events at up to 80% off retail. Wedcoupon launched early this month offering national sales events on discounted high-demand wedding related merchandise, travel, and wine – disrupting the overpriced $40B/year wedding industry. Engaged couples, attendants, family and friends can register to receive emails about upcoming sales. Membership is free: register with an email address and a password.
Wedcoupon is an ecommerce platform that offers sales events ranging from discounted high-demand wedding related merchandise, travel, wine, and services. Engaged couples and their attendants can register to receive emails about sales events that could save them a small fortune on one of life’s most expensive occasions. Registered members can also search for time-dated sales events via the ‘calendar function’ to discover local vendors discounts that coincide with their wedding date. Local sales events on wedding services are offered in Washington DC and Seattle, future cities include New York, Chicago, San Francisco, LA, and more. Everything from the dress, the honeymoon, and wine, to decor is offered nationally.
“I’ve been in the industry for 15 years and understand that weddings can be the most expensive event of a lifetime…but they don’t have to be!” Says Co-Founder, Katie Martin
Carolyn Gerin, Co-Founder, elaborates, “Wedcoupon offers on-trend, stylish solutions at affordable price points. Remember: the day after your wedding is the beginning of your economic life together…. If you want to live well, keep an eye on the balance sheet.”
“Wedcoupon’s product and service offerings is what truly sets us apart from our competitors. If I could have saved on my wedding makeup or even booked an ice cream truck to offer luscious late night snacks for my guests, I may have been inspired to explore different possibilities.” said Carina Walters, CMO of Wedcoupon. “We know that most couples in today’s economy are digging into their savings to bring their dream wedding to life – we want to lower those costs, and allow them to have it all, without ever sacrificing style or innovation.”
To celebrate the launch Wedcoupon has dropped shipping to $4.95, and is reaching out to the budget savvy-newly-engaged-Seattle-ites to be guest bloggers and join the champagne-fueled inspiration committee video calls at HQ. Here, Seattle-ites will share their great finds, unique wedding inspirations, personal style, and tips and tricks on “how to stay happily engaged in 2012” with Wedcoupon and our followers.

It’s hard to believe, but it’s that time again. Yet another beautiful issue of Destination I Do Magazine hits stands today. I know it’s still snowy and glacial across most of the country, but picking up the Spring/Summer 2011 issue of Destination I Do is sure to bring some sunshine to your day! We strive to bring equal parts inspiration and information to every issue and we think we hit the nail on the head with our latest edition.
For our Fashion Forward department there are two gorgeous photo shoots each with its own style and pizzazz. If a tropical wedding is your aim or if it’s down-home vintage all the way, look to this issue’s Fashion Forward for ideas on dresses, décor and details. Our Spring Cover is a shot from our Mt. Hood, Oregon Fashion Forward Shoot. Behind the lens was the marvelously talented Phyllis Lane who captured this shot on Lost Lake in Hood River.
So, what else does this issue have to offer? As always, the writers at Destination I Do traveled far and wide to some of the romantic destination wedding and honeymoon locales across the globe. The uber-fab Anti-Bride gives readers the inside scoop on the original “City of Love” – Paris and the emerald isle of Ireland. One writer traveled to Indonesia for his honeymoon and discovered a surfer’s paradise.
Destination I Do Magazine’s Editor in Chief, Jennifer Stein, took a whirlwind trip through Sweden and discovered Scandinavian love nests that are too good to pass up. I, Courtney Cox, took a trip to Hawaii that was an absolute delight and fit for any honeymooner or destination wedding couple. There are many other destinations to discover amongst the colorful, glossy pages.
Often our readers’ favorite department is the Real-Life Weddings and frankly we can’t blame them. The weddings in this issue continue to take it to the next level with personalization and unique style. There are some love stories here that will melt your heart and images that will take your breath away. From a chateau in France to the rolling hills of Columbia – there’s a wedding here that will inspire you in planning your own destination wedding.
This is all just a tiny taste of what you can find in our Spring/Summer 2011 issue. Want to pick one up? You can find Destination I Do at Barnes & Noble, select Borders and other fine book retailers worldwide. Don’t have one of these nearby – no problem! It’s easy to subscribe on our web site and the issue will be delivered to your door in about a week. If you love this issue as much as we do, then share the love and spread the word! As always, thanks for your continued support and love of all things Destination I Do.
