Stop wasting money on poor advertising

We are sick of hearing from our clients just how poor the results are from marketing.  It’s time to make this work.

Getting to fully booked is hard…

Because in today’s wedding market there are just too many options for advertising your business, so you don’t know where to spend your marketing money and you don’t know what is working and what isn’t!  You spread your money around and can’t track it all… you’re wasting precious time and money on marketing that simply doesn’t work.

It’s time to STOP THE WASTE… and get serious about booking out your wedding business.

COLUMBUS BRIDE & GROOM IS THE PLACE TO CAPTURE THE ATTENTION OF ENGAGED COUPLES IN OUR LOCAL AREA

With Columbus Bride & Groom, you’ll get the ultimate exposure from the most trusted local wedding professionals brand. There is simply no-one who knows the industry better than Jamie and her team, and they have your back every step of the way.

Here's why we know this is the BEST investment for your wedding business...

My name is Jamie Rapavy and I’m the founder of Columbus Bride & Groom.

I’ve been in your shoes as a small business owner struggling to work out where to advertise that will ACTUALLY WORK. I have tried everything – and I’ve literally spent hundreds of thousands of dollars over time – and I know exactly what REALLY converts couples into paying clients.

I wanted to create a package for local wedding professionals that simply made sense.  It gives you multiple touch-points, multiple opportunities with leads and makes marketing simple again.

And now I’m bringing this to you in one easy-to-understand package.

The Showcased Local Wedding Advertising Package gives you everything you need to get in front of Columbus’ engaged couples – so you can successfully fill your calendar with lots of paying clients!

This is a one-off opportunity to secure your place in The Showcased Local Wedding Advertising Package as there are 5 places only per category – so only 5 videographers, 5 florists, 5 photographers etc. If you miss out on this opportunity, qualified engaged couples will be speaking with your competition instead.

I wanted to make it limited so that you get a really premium opportunity to make this work.

I’m so excited to bring you this offer.  It’s the best opportunity for you to really engage with leads in our local area – and I cannot wait to welcome you to the crew!

As a career photographer, business owner and wedding vendor professional. Columbus Bride and Groom has always been extremely helpful in generating great business leads, assisting in connecting us with future clients and promoting our services on social media platforms. From the beginning, Jamie, Tammy and staff have always been there for us!

THE SHOWCASED LOCAL WEDDING ADVERTISING PACKAGE FOR COLUMBUS WEDDING PROFESSIONALS

What our clients say…

The preferred vendor package has been such a great investment for my business. The amount of exposure we get from the resource center, both bridal shows, and the multitude of referrals they send is amazing – and the team is fun and great to work with as well. We typically see a return of over 5 times what we spend, and each year their base count seems to grow – and in turn so do their referrals! Definitely an investment that we have gladly renewed year after year, and will continue to do so. Jason Fletcher
