Why The Ring?

The Ring is different from most wedding web sites and magazines because we go further than advertising for vendors or basic wedding tips for brides. Each advertiser Interviews & Reviewed in The Wedding Ring selects wedding professionals for their reputation, their cool-factor, and by the the fact that we've met them, like them, and want to tell you all about them. Many vendors have been recommended to us by other brides and wedding industry experts.  The Ring's staff has done its homework, checked references, and asked around to find great services that can work with all different tastes, budgets and preferences. You'll have lots of options to plan the perfect wedding but not so many that you don't know where to start. The Wedding Ring is a community and a concept that's designed all around what real brides need and what professional wedding vendors have every right to expect.

Hiring: What's a bride to do?

When you're faced with hiring services for the most important day of your life, based solely on who's phone book ad is the biggest, who has the nicest logo, or who's 'blurb' in a web site ad sounds best... When there are 60 florists and 47 photographers... how do you choose? By getting free access to all of the details, prices, options and recommendations you'd normally spend months trying to find. The Ring changes the way K-W brides plan weddings.

**The staff at Wedding Ring Inc. have met with, interviewed, reviewed, and viewed the references of the work of all vendors listed here. To the best of our knowledge, we feel that these vendors will provide superior service and talent on your wedding day. We DO NOT, however, guarantee the work of any service, company or incorporation. Please always refer to your own personal judgment in any situation. Feel free to recommend any vendors you feel should be a part of this and are not.
