WeddingsaboutSpain.com was launched in June 2014 and is an online directory for the Costa del Sol aimed specifically at the wedding market on the costa for both residents and those wishing to travel to the region to tie the knot.
In 2014 I decided to get married to my partner of four years. I had always dreaded marriage fearing the organisational hell and time it would involve to plan. I first required a venue and as I began the search I realised there was no one place to find the information. After trawling through endless holiday venue websites I decided to put all my research to good use and weddingsaboutspain.com was born.
The idea was to create something similar to sister site Roundaboutspain.com which was launched in 2011 as a directory for kids and families. The concept behind WeddingsAboutSpain is to provide a ‘one stop’ shop for all wedding needs on the Costa del Sol and encourage those in the lucrative wedding sector to advertise their company. There are 8 categories plus a blog page to encourage interaction.
The categories include wedding venues from villas to restaurants to rural cortijos, to photographers, dress makers, entertainers, transport, hen and stag party venues, caterers and wedding planners to name a few. It’s an easy to access directory and will include those companies who advertise their locations or services.
This is a brand new website and aimed at the end user (the bride and groom!) who hopefully will be able to contact the various services for quotes and information without the time and trouble involved in finding such services in the first place. As a new venture our initial aim is to attract some key advertisers onto the directory alongside fairly quick promotion of the site in a bid to get the name and brand out there.
