It is dedicated to couples who want to publicize the details to their guests about their special day. A .WED domain address is the perfect way to broadcast all the logistics of a modern wedding.”

It is estimated that over $300 billion is spent annually by couples on weddings world-wide. The average cost per wedding varies from $28,000 in the US to over $80,000 in the United Arab Emirates. The wedding industry is vast and includes retailers of: wedding dresses, jewelry, and party favors. It also includes associated services and facilities such as: musicians, reception halls, photographers, caterers, florists, invitation designers, limousines, bakeries and planners.
