New Year’s Resolutions

Vancity Bride's New Year's Resolutions

Happy New Year! I can’t believe it’s 2012 already, it seems like 2011 just flew by!

First of all, I just want to say a big Congratulations to all those who got engaged over the holidays! Hooray for you and welcome to my site! I hope you’ll enjoy it here :)

Second of all, I just want to thank you all for supporting me in 2011. I am so grateful for all the great feedback, words of encouragement, and new friendships you’ve given me. I’m looking forward to the new adventures 2012 will have in store for me but for now, I want to send a message out about what’s coming up for Vancity Bride this year.

To my readers…

  • Every month I will be posting a wedding show roundup which lists any wedding shows that will be happening each month. I will still post about certain shows but this roundup post will allow you to plan ahead and make time for the shows you want to go to every month!
  • I want to start weekly posts featuring your engagement story and your top wedding planning tips. Real tips & true romantic stories from Real Vancity Brides! If you’ve got advice, ideas, or tutorials that may be of use to a fellow budget bride, send me an email at info@vancitybride.com with the subject line “Engagement Story” or “Real Vancity Bride Tips” and perhaps you’ll find yourself featured on the blog! (Submissions with photos will have a greater chance of being featured.)
  • I want to feature more real budget weddings so if you’re willing to share your story and your wedding is under $20k, apply here and get featured! Inspire other brides and show them they can have an amazing wedding without a huge pricetag.
  • Don’t forget to Like my Facebook page or Follow me on Twitter – I share a lot of deals and updates on my social media sites, a lot of which don’t end up on the blog so you gotta be a fan to know about them! I’m also active on Pinterest and Google+ so feel free to check me out there too!

To vendors…

  • I’m also opening real wedding submissions to wedding planners & photographers. Submit photos of budget weddings you’ve worked on with at least a list of the couple’s vendors, or if the bride will allow an interview, that would be ideal. Email me at info[at]vancitybride[dot]com.
  • I am now accepting banner advertisers on my site for an affordable rate. For all the details, click here.
  • Keep the Vancity Vendor submissions coming! I love hearing about up and coming vendors and I’m always eager to share with my readers what you are all about! Click here to apply.
  • If you have any events, wedding shows or workshops you think will be beneficial for Vancouver brides to know, please contact me and let me know what your event is all about! You might even find it on the monthly show roundup posts or maybe on its own blog post! The more notice you give me, the better!


I’m pleased to announce that I will be at Isabelle’s Bridal on January 23rd, while TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress star Randy Fenoli will be helping some brides with their shopping! I’ll be providing updates throughout the day so follow Vancity Bride & Isabelle’s Bridal on Twitter & be a fan of Vancity Bride & Isabelle’s Bridal on Facebook to get all the scoop! Brides: there are still appointments with Randy available so call 604-986-5200 to reserve your spot on January 23rd!

Also, I will be out of town for a few weeks in March and April taking a much needed vacation so blog posts, tweets, and breaking wedding updates may be less than usual, but don’t worry, once I get back, I’ll be coming up with more awesome posts!

Just For Fun…

Here are some of my most viewed blog articles in 2011 (not counting Vancity Vendors and contests):

That’s all for now! Looking forward to be spending another year with you! (Speaking of which… Vancity Bride will be turning 1 this March – and I’m working on something special to celebrate!)
