Vancity Vendor: WedDeals

Vancity Vendor: WedDeals.ca

Group buy sites are all the rage right now and many people use it to save on food, activities, and pampering, just to name a few. WedDeals.ca is showing local brides some love too. This week’s Vancity Vendor is a website dedicated to bringing discounts on wedding services to brides-to-be across Canada and, at the same time, allow growing businesses to have some much-needed exposure. They just celebrated their first anniversary (congratulations!) and Roxane, President and Co-Founder of WedDeals.ca couldn’t be happier with the response her site has gotten. Many brides have found great savings on necessities such as photography, wedding planning and coordination, stationery and more.

So how does it work? Simply create a free account on WedDeals.ca, find a deal you love and click to Buy It. Bought WedDeals are found in your account as well as all the instructions on how to redeem it. The vendor is notified of your purchase soon after and will be expecting your call. You get a 10-day money back guarantee from the day the WedDeal is bought so it’s best to contact the vendor ASAP to find out if they are available for your wedding date or see if your personalities mesh.

WedDeals.ca chooses their vendors based on 3 different criteria: the services they offer, their website, and the deal they want to offer. Everything has to be wedding-related and at least 50% off! Can you imagine how much money you can save if all your vendors had discounts that deep? New deals are added regularly, especially in the Vancouver and Toronto markets, but Roxane tells me they are working hard to get other cities caught up. If you want to stay updated, you can sign up on their website to receive emails as soon as new deals are live. You can also follow them on Twitter or be a fan on Facebook to see all their latest news.

As with any other wedding vendor, I encourage you to check each vendor’s references or find reviews before going through with the booking for peace of mind and to help avoid disappointment on your big day.

A Few Words With Roxane…

What motivated you to come up with this concept?
“The idea comes from 2 challenges I had to face as a wedding planner.  I know that promoting a business in the wedding industry is very difficult. I also know couples don’t always have the wedding budget they would need to have their dream wedding. Weddeals.ca allows the vendor and the bride to meet over a good deal.”

What do you have to offer for brides with lower budgets?
“All of our WEDdeals! Weddeals.ca allows Brides with lower budget to be able to get what they dreamed of for their wedding at 50%OFF or more!”

What sets you apart from others in the same field?
“Weddeals.ca focuses only on Canada. And all of our deals are at a minimum of 50%OFF!”

What do you enjoy most about your job?
“I enjoy knowing that I am helping brides with lower budget get their dream wedding as well as helping small wedding businesses grow their business.”

Do you have plans on expanding your services?
“We want to stay focused on helping Canadian brides rather than going to the US or other markets. We are currently offering deals in all the major Canadian cities and our plan for the future is being able to offer deals in smaller cities.”

If you had one piece of advice for a bride and groom, what would it be?
“Go to Weddeals.ca and sign up! And on your wedding day: Breathe, Smile and Enjoy!”
