Bridal Market Overview
The wedding industry - considered a true “recession-proof” industry - generates in the United States over 60 billion dollars a year in wedding and ceremony related expenses (this figure does not include the honeymoon, which is estimated to be between 4 and 8 billion dollars a year.)
In the past, the typical engaged woman was 21, lived at home and had her wedding mostly planned by her mother. But now, the bride-to-be is mostly older and has more money to spend, making this an attractive demographic for advertisers. Bridal magazines are responding to these changes by expanding beyond the typical ad markets and promotions.
A major focus of the industry has been to grow the wedding market beyond its traditional categories of linens, small appliances, and cookware, embracing all home products, such as major appliances, furniture, and consumer electronics.
A 1999 Millennium Report conducted by Brides Magazine’s found that while brides and grooms represent only 2.6% of all households in the United States, they account for up to 70% of major household items purchased.
However, we need to keep in mind that though the wedding industry is huge in terms of dollars, it is often difficult to track exactly where that money is being spent. This is because the industry is made up of multiple smaller enterprises like caterers, wedding consultants, dresses, jewelry, various beauty suppliers (hair, makeup), photographers, favors/bridesmaids gifts, music, honeymoon related, etc. In addition, many of these smaller enterprises also do other events and don’t necessarily break their business down into wedding versus non-wedding.

WEDDING MAGAZINE STATISTICS
More than ever before, today's bride begins planning her wedding online.
The following list depicts the range of common wedding products any business can sell the bride-to-be:
If you want to reach this high spending market, you need to (pair up with us Planner of Events.com).
It's an absolute must for anyone selling Wedding, Events and Meeting related products or services, or items that consumers will be looking for.
The largest disadvantage, though, of offline "pre-visit" print media, is that it is intrusive. It reaches your audience at a time when most are likely not considering an event. On the Web, your Event advertising reaches a highly targeted audience specifically when they are searching for Event-related information about your sector, whether that is economical invitations, ultra-high-end floral, mid-priced reception venue and so forth.
The right website has the power to reach those highly-targeted customers, and more of them, 24x7x52. It takes persistent, repetitive, and positive exposure by a trusted authority who shares the passion to deliver the results that your advertising dollars have long sought.
The consumer is typically well-heeled, Web-savvy and is disproportionately from the NorthEast US. PlannerofEvents.com attracts mid-to-high-end consumers who are either new at planning an event or who are long-term event planners.
The site "patiently" waits, ready to reach your future customer when s/he does pre-visit Web research, whether it's in December or in August (many research during the engagement season for their wedding plans).
PlannerofEvents.com connects with readers before they book a venue, photographer, hire florist, etc. They find PlannerofEvents.com at the start of researching their next big event, hunting for tips and recommendations.
These are exactly the visitors that you want. And you may reach them exclusively, giving you a strong edge over your direct competition.
Plannerofevents.com, a product of Opulent Events by Gracie, was started in 2012. Since then, it has been a labor and product of passion. PlannerofEvents.com reviews favorite technology, party ideas, hot trends, venues/hotels and other event products and services. With Gracie’s supervision, the site recounts their discoveries in the industry.
Visitors enjoy the unique flavor of the site, often pre-shopping and printing out what to do on their upcoming event. They are intelligent, engaged, well-to-do and intend to plan an event within the next 12 – 15 months. They are the audience you want to reach.
This is not a "commercial" website, so there are few sponsorship opportunities. Plannerofevents.com seeks a small number of quality partners, on a category-exclusive basis, who want to create win-win-win promotional partnerships.
Why is PlannerofEvents.com limiting the opportunities? The philosophy is simple...
"Never lose what PlannerofEvents.com is all about... Relax while we do the work."
Plannerofevents.com is accepting a limited number of sponsorships on an exclusive basis in each category (ex., mid-priced photography, luxury floral, 5-star hotels). You must truly have an excellent product or service. Plannerofevents.com will not work with a company that would result in consumers having a sub-par experience during their experience of planning an event.
