Wedding Ring Ideals

November 2016

We built the Ring to make it easier to plan your local wedding and to share your plans and excitement with your friends and fellow brides. We know you don’t want to share these hopes and dreams with everyone on the internet; that is why we give you the control over your information. Your profile is set with default minimum privacy settings that can, and should, be customized by you to suit your own personal privacy needs.

The Wedding Ring follows one core ideal in all areas:

It’s all about the bride! That’s right. It’s all about you!

At the Wedding Ring, we believe that a bride should get what she wants in all things. You, our joyous brides, get to decide what you want to share and who you want to share it with.

The Wedding Ring helps you share your wedding plans, tips, blogs, photos and excitement with your friends and family as well as your fellow brides. You choose what information you put in your profile, including contact and personal information, pictures, interests, groups you join and vendors that your are using and recommend. And you decide who will get to see this information through the privacy settings that you select on the Privacy page in your personal profile.

It’s always been our mission to keep you informed on the latest trends, hottest vendors and all that is new in your local wedding industry.  We’re here to make sure that you can get to that information easily as well as share it with your friends.

We make sharing information easy. But we also want to make sure that we provide you with privacy controls you need to determine what information you share and who you share it with. As always, if you have any questions or suggestions, you may contact us at brides@theweddingring.ca.
