Want to get the inside scoop from the bride herself? Well, now you can by leveraging a new feature on WeddingMapper.com called Ask-A-Bride. Through Ask-A-Bride, brides from anywhere in the world can connect with newlyweds and ask them questions about their wedding venue, vendors, theme, décor and more.
To use Ask-A-Bride, you simply explore the Real Weddings section in your wedding destination city and select the “Ask a Question” button to contact a particular bride. An email is then sent to the bride who can choose to respond to your question. Thousands of brides are currently using Ask-A-Bride to receive local advice for their weddings. To date, 70 percent of questions receive a response from newlyweds within one week.
For Las Vegas brides, you can view hundreds of real weddings and ask local newlyweds questions about their wedding to make sure you achieve your dream wedding day.
“There is a unique connection between brides married/getting married at the same venue or in the same city,” said Julie King, vice president of sales and marketing for Wedding Mapper. “We hope to foster that connection through Ask-A-Bride and create an honest environment for brides to share ideas and find inspiration.”
In addition to Ask-A-Bride, Wedding Mapper offers other free, do-it-yourself planning tools and services including “Ask-the-Expert,” where brides get personal questions answered by wedding expert and author, Sharon Naylor. Brides can also create custom wedding maps, explore 35,000 Real Weddings, examine vendor reviews, find local wedding events, or post questions on local and global message boards.
