(PRWEB) March 7, 2006
As a major wedding planning and wedding photography supplier shuts its doors, what options do brides and grooms have now? Expert Wedding Planner Jane Martin of WeddingPlanSecrets.com offers some advice.
“The surprise closure of Kodak Weddings has left a big gap in the market. If you have already booked a photographer for 2006 you should be alright but new brides and grooms have to find another solution,” says Jane.
Looking around at some of the up and coming websites, Jane recommends two sites that might offer some help in new and exciting ways.
Firstly, Totally Weddings is a unique wedding planning service that puts those planning to get married in touch with a range of suppliers. What makes Totally Weddings different is that you give them details of the items you are looking for and they arrange for suppliers to contact you. This saves the stress and hassle of ringing or walking around from shop to shop.
As well as finding wedding venues, cake makers, dress shops, magicians etc., you can find a wide range of wedding photographers. You can even ask for a particular style of photographer you are looking for!
There is an interesting twist to this for those watching the pennies or who would like a special present for the family. Find a photographer who is willing to produce digital photos on a CD, and then visit Jane's next recommendation.
Cherish allows you to create your own hard-bound wedding album and professional mini-albums for the proud parents. You simply download their editor software, select the album type and add in your photos. When you have finished, push the button, pay and in less than 10 days you get a high quality wedding album back in the post.
Another idea is to collect your guests’ digital photos and assemble them into a unique record of your big day. An easy thing to do that can create a very special reminder.
“So while we are sad to see Kodak Weddings disappear, the gap left behind is already being filled,” comments Jane.
