Kiss the Bride Wedding Service is breathing something new into the 5 billion dollar wedding industry in Australia with an online service that takes a lot of the stress out of planning for the big day.
Australian Bureau of Statistics show that more than 100,000 registered weddings occur in Australia each year. When couples begin planning, the majority want to compare different wedding providers to gauge price and service.
"Planning a wedding is typically stressful, with a lot of running around and endless phone calls that drive a lot of couples - and their families - literally to tears," says Kiss the Bride's director Damon Taylor.
"The Kiss the Bride Wedding Directory looks like any other wedding directory but it takes convenience to a whole new level with its community approach."
Couples can browse the catalogue of wedding providers from across the country, leave messages for providers and click through to different websites. It’s convenient because everything is on one place.
Couples can choose to have their wedding details distributed to the Kiss the Bride Wedding Providers community. All providers in the categories that the couples select will receive the details.
Providers email their quotes and service details directly to the couple.
“I would recommend Kiss the Bride to any couple planning a wedding,” says bride-to-be Shelly-Anne Everton from Brisbane.
“It is often difficult to know where to start when planning your special day but Kiss the Bride is a very helpful and useful resource that covers every element required for planning your wedding.
"Plus the friendly and professional staff have been so willing to give their time and provide us with relevant information to help make our wedding planning a fun and enjoyable process. My fiancé and I have really appreciated the advice and encouragement offered from this fabulous service!”
The wedding community like it too.
Mills Photography on the Sunshine Coast know the industry well, reporting that 65% of their total enquires over the last quarter has come from Kiss the Bride, despite advertising with eight other wedding directories.
“Your wedding website is a wonderfully fresh approach to the bridal industry,” explains Leigh Mills.
“Your website is really useful for brides to be and fantastic for getting those enquiries to come straight to us, the providers. The amount of leads and increased traffic to our website that kissthebride has generated over the past couple of months is incredible.”
Wedding service providers receive a detailed wedding snapshot of each couple, allowing them to tailor a package that can cater specifically to the couples’ needs.
The distribution method is similar to realestate.com’s property email alerts.
