Why Newlybride: Everyone's Perspective Matters

The next evolutionary step for all things bridal on the web

What is Newlybride?

Newlybride is a (structured) social network that incorporates the best of bridal, the best of social media, and the best of technology. And, we’re bringing it all together in one truly magical way.

Unlike other social networks, Newlybride requires that each post is concise in content, and in meaning. Posts are brief Tips that illustrate a wedding do, don't, or how to, categorized by standard wedding categories. The member posting the Tip also has the option to provide a weblink to any addition article or resource that may support the content of the published Tip.

Different Points of View...

When everyone chimes in on a pre-organized wedding topic, the result is a phenomenally rich symphony of ideas from virtually every point of view.

For example, the perspective that a photographer has about a wedding venue may provide valuable insight that could impact the overall color palette of a wedding. The possibilities are endless!
