Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) July 21, 2005
Stephi Stewart is at it again! The bridal rights advocate, author and champion of budget-savvy brides everywhere has another success on her hands -- FreeWeddingClassifieds.com.
Stewart created FreeWeddingClassifieds.com as a companion to her hugely popular eBook "Fire Your Wedding Planner! Money Saving Secrets Every Bride Should Know," which has helped thousands of brides save over $3.5 million off their wedding expenses (and counting).
Since launching on March 29th, this new comprehensive wedding marketplace has quickly become "the" destination for "bargain-hunting" brides to connect, find steals and deals and sell unwanted merchandise after their weddings to help recoup costs.
In the first three months, the site has enjoyed record-breaking traffic (over 500,000 page visits) and has reached an early milestone of over 1000 listings.
"When I wrote Fire Your Wedding Planner three years ago," says Stewart, "my goal was to empower brides with the information and tools they needed to have more wedding for less money and avoid industry scams.
"Creating FreeWeddingClassifieds.com was the next logical step in my continuing quest to put a dent in the world of outrageous rip-offs and maddening mark-ups so many engaged couples face today."
The sites popularity is no surprise considering basic classified listings are 100% free (enhanced listings are also available for a minimal fee).
FreeWeddingClassifieds.com's categories include: Bridal gowns & Fashion, Catering & Cakes, Diamonds & Jewelry, Favors & Accessories, Flowers & DÃ©cor, Gifts & Registry, Invitations & Thank Yous, Music & Entertainment, Photography & Video, Travel & Honeymoon, and Miscellaneous (which includes categories ranging from Wedding Officiants to Weight Loss).
Many of the detailed listings feature photos or website links for the customer to view the merchandise.
To encourage wedding professionals, vendors and websites to offer discounts to her readers, Ms. Stewart offers fully enhanced listings for free for the first month when a discount is included in any classified ad.
