The story behind WeddingWise

We were married in February 2009, and never having planned a wedding before we weren’t sure where to start. Some wise person said “find a wedding venue and go from there”. Little did we realise there was the venue, the photographer, the caterer, the invitations, the florist, the cake, the dress, the suit, the entertainment, and 1000 other little things we needed to find and organise. It was going to be a lot of work.

We needed something better.

Being of the online generation, our first instinct was to search the web for a wedding venue, but it was more difficult than we thought to find a good directory of venues in New Zealand. We eventually found a venue we liked and through their recommendations we were able to find most of our other vendors.

Up until the weekend of our wedding we thought we had made good choices. We soon found out that we didn’t. Some of our vendors were fantastic, while others didn’t live up to their promises. If only we had a website where we could have read reviews about these vendors before we chose them we could have made smarter, happier decisions. But that site didn’t exist for New Zealand, so we decided to build it.

We designed and developed WeddingWise from the ground up to be the most beautiful, easiest to use, most trusted, and most inspiring wedding website we could dream up. No expense has been spared to create a wedding planning experience like no other. Our goal has always been to provide maximum value to vendors and advertisers while never compromising the user-experience for New Zealand couples getting married.

Share reviews, establish social trust.

This website was born from the idea to create a comprehensive online resource for couples planning their wedding, enabling them to make smarter decisions and to share their experiences with others.

The usefulness of WeddingWise depends on honest, detailed reviews from people just like you. If you’ve already been married, please take a moment to review your wedding vendors. Your reviews, whether positive or negative, will help future couples plan their perfect wedding. Sharing your experiences will help them avoid the mistakes you may have made, and enjoy the hidden gems you've discovered. While also letting wedding vendors know what they're doing right, and what may need improvement.

We're always getting better.

Please let us know what you think of the site and how we can make it more useful. We're always open to feedback and are exciited and determined to continue to improve WeddingWise and make it the ultimate wedding planning destination.

Congratulations to all of you organising your wedding day. Plan smart. Be Wedding Wise.
