We are getting ready to launch our Inspiration Board creator app for the iPhone and iPad! Get ready to be able to create inspiration boards in just a few minutes! No longer will you need to know how to use Photoshop or Illustrator. Make inspiration boards just like the professional bloggers! I just reread what I typed…and it sounds like an infomercial. But whatever…you’re going to love it. We’re looking to submit to Apple next week and vendors, if you want to get your photos on, let me know and we can make that happen! Would love to hear your feedback on this new app and how we can improve on it!
We were featured on their website’s tech section and they also did a video review. I’m thinking that we’re achieving our goal of driving traffic to small wedding bloggers if the Wall st. journal thinks so! Bravo to my sweet husband for being the mastermind behind all our cool and innovative technology!
I am SO excited to announce the launch of our new iPad app: Inspiration Engine! You are going to LOVE it! Search through hundreds of thousands of wedding blog articles to find exactly what you’re looking for without leaving the app! Easily scroll through all the blog articles with a simple swipe up or down the screen until you decide to click on a gorgeous photograph. Tap on the photo to be directly to the blog article. For those of you without iPads, it will be coming to an iPhone near you very very soon! And a product launch just wouldn’t be complete without a giveaway! Leave a comment below and we’ll be choosing 3 names to win a code for a free download of our new ipad app!
I think it’s time for a BIG GIVEAWAY!!! I want to thank so many of you for all of your support as we launch our new Inspiration Engine App on the iOS and Android Platforms. It’s really going to revolutionize how brides will find wedding vendors as well as save time finding wedding inspiration.
What I’ll be giving away is 3 Spots in our Featured Blog Section. Your blog will be seen by tens of thousands of brides for a month.
We’re looking to add 5 Guest Bloggers to our team! My Wedding Concierge is growing at an incredible pace! We are about to turn our wedding blog search engine into an iPhone/iPad App. The Android App is not far behind. You must currently have a blog and write on a regular basis – we will index it free of charge for you as well as place your banner ad on our blog’s sidebar. You will get great exposure for your business on our site and apps. You will be committing to a minimum of 1 article per week. You can blog on trends, create inspiration boards, wedding technology, wedding marketing – really anything your heart desires.
We will be hitting a minimum of 225,000 pageviews this month and I expect it to skyrocket when the Apps get released.
If you’re interested in being considered, please post a link to your blog in the comments section and we’ll be in touch!
We want more wedding blogs on our site! The more content we have, the better search experience for our brides! And we want your blog to be part of our iPad/iPhone App launch in just a few short weeks! We’ll pull down your entire blog from the day you started blogging and reindex everything on our site.
This is open to all wedding vendors who have blogs! Our engine will even display video instead of a photo if that is your first “image” of your entry.
For a chance to win, do the following 2 tasks to be entered! Leave a comment below with a link to your facebook post and your twitter name.
1. Post to your Facebook wall: “Come Search With Style for Wedding Inspiration at http://www.my-wedding-concierge.com”

We have been feverishly working on coding up an AMAZING App. We will be releasing an iPhone as well as an iPad app for our wedding blog search engine. It won’t only search through wedding blogs for bridal inspiration – we’ve added a geo-locator tool for brides. She can pull up on a map and zoom in on where she is located at that exact moment. What comes next is revolutionary for the wedding world. Pin drops will now dot the map around her to show her all of the wedding vendors who are indexed in our wedding blog search engine. She touches the pin head and up comes photographs of either the vendor’s work or photos of the reception site. She can read a caption on each photograph and click on the “More” button if there are blog articles associated with that vendor or review on reception site for brides to see the “Real Weddings” that have happened there! Here are some screenshots – I’m sure it’ll explain better:
Bride can geo-locate herself via GPS functionality and she can zoom in/zoom out to see all vendors in her area.
Vendor Locator allows brides to click on the pin drop for more information
Photo pops up and text explains photo or promotes location. Bride can click on read more button for access to blog articles about location or vendor.
Blog article that gets pulled up for bride to read - relevant and targeted content related to vendor/reception site - showcases real weddings
The blog articles that are pulled up are targeted and relevant. It will help brides find wedding vendors in her area quickly and easily. She will also get to see blog articles that are associated with you, your work, and location. Now, here’s the best part, we are making this available INTERNATIONALLY. Yes, all the vendors that have been contacting me from the UK and Australia especially, will be able to be on here! Our app will also be released internationally.
