3) What is it about your website that you are most proud of?
See above answer.
4) What is the greatest challenge that you have faced while growing your site?
WeddingChannel.com is constantly on the lookout for fresh, timely ideas and exclusive celebrity wedding information. By bringing on renowned celebrity experts such as Yifat Oren and Robert Evans, we?ve made sure that we?re constantly in-the-know on celebrity weddings.
5) Currently, what is the one wedding tip you want to give to soon-to-wed couples?
It?s important to remember that the wedding is about you and your fianc? getting married. Make sure that while you?re planning a wedding, you make decisions that will help you have the wedding that you want, not the wedding that your friends or family may necessarily want you to have.
6) What are some of the areas you think wedding couples always overlook when planning their own weddings?
Make sure you manage their wedding registry. Many couples think once they?ve created their wedding registry, they can sit back and watch their registries fill up as their friends and family get them gifts. In fact, it?s important that couples constantly update their wedding registry to make sure there are items in there of all different price points so it can fit any guest?s budget, and that there is a wide selection of products for guests to choose from.
Be sure to *read the fine print* on every contract before you sign it, and make sure you’re aware of cancellation policies and fees. Also ask if there’s a grace period to cancel just in case you change your mind or something happens and you need to postpone the wedding (you never know).
7) Your final thought and advice for my wedding blog readers?
WeddingChannel.com (www.weddingchannel.com) is a fantastic place to get the all the wedding planning information you need. From thousands of photos of dresses, cakes, and flowers to all the answers to your wedding etiquette questions to a ton of free planning tools, it?s all right here.
