Advertising with Offbeat Bride!

Carrie Hoffman

Building a small business is HARD, people.  When I started in this industry I was pretty naive.  I had no solid plans of becoming full time so I didn't really do a ton of research into what wedding filmmakers actually do to make it work.  I'll admit it, I pretty much haphazardly learned as I grew.

A couple years ago, I decided to make the jump into advertising.  For wedding vendors, there are a plethora of endless advertising options out there!  Luckily I was just coming down from the high of my own wedding, so I turned to the "old reliable" wedding planning blogs I used to help me with my own shindig, A Practical Wedding and Offbeat Bride.

Thanks to my first sponsored post on A Practical Wedding a couple years ago I've booked some amazing weddings with cool, smart couples and even gotten to travel to Monterey and Sacramento!

My featured vendor listing on Offbeat Bride is a new investment, but I've already booked a couple San Diego weddings with awesome couples for this summer.  I love Offbeat Bride because they feature real, authentic couples who are really thinking about what marriages and weddings mean to them, rather than blindly following tradition and some *other* wedding blogs' advice.

If you're a vendor looking for advertising or an engaged couple looking for vendors, I highly recommend Offbeat Bride!
