Last week, when I announced the impending relaunch of the site (eep!) I mentioned that we were going to make weddings highly searchable. Because let’s be for real. We all talk about how we love everyone and the world is a lovely rainbow (it is), but when you’re planning a wedding, you really want to find examples of people like you. You want weddings in affordable venues in New York City. You want to see what other hot plus sized wedding dresses ladies are rocking. You want to see other weddings in churches, other receptions in restaurants, or weddings with 250-why-is-my-family-so-damn-big guests.
So today, we’re polling you: how do you want to search your weddings? Big wedding websites let you search by things like “brown” and “boho chic” (real examples), but my guess is that’s not y’all’s speed. I’m thinking you don’t want to search by color and style, but instead want to search by things that are more… helpful.
But you tell us. This morning is about wishing and hoping (and hopefully wish fulfillment, in a few short weeks). How do you want to be able to search through APW weddings?
**Edited to add: We’re not crowd sourcing how to build the site today. That’s all been set in the nine months we’ve been working on it (and I think you guys will be happy with it, seeing your comments). What we’re specifically looking for is wedding search terms.**
