Free 2020 renewals for any one who has EVER been listed in the Offbeat Bride Vendor Guide #Site News#coronavirus wedding#vendors Updated Dec 8 2020 (Posted Apr 25 2020) Ariel findyourafterglow Hey, sweet wedding vendor friends. It's me, Ariel… the publisher of Offbeat Bride. I tried emailing all of you, but I know how spam filters work, so I'm publishing this here in the hopes that folks who need it, will find it. We all know just how difficult these past couple months have been for the wedding industry. I know first-hand how postponements and cancellations have reduced many of our incomes to zero, how sales and revenue streams have completely disappeared, and how many of us are just barely, barely, holding on. I'm in this sinking boat with you, but I want to do what I can (while I still can!) to support my beloved colleagues who've been a part of the Offbeat Bride Vendor Guide this past decade. I'm offering any wedding vendor who's EVER been listed in the Offbeat Bride Vendor Guide a FREE renewal through the end of 2020. If your business has been heavily impacted but the current economic situation, you can now opt for a FREE 2020 renewal for your vendor listing. This offer is extended to all of the 1100+ small businesses who've ever been listed in the Offbeat Bride Vendor Guide. The guide launched in 2010, and even if your vendor listing expired way back in 2011… you're eligible for free 2020 renewal. Just email me, and I'll make sure your listing stays online through the end of 2020. No charge, no questions asked, no strings attached. That said, there are are some limitations for this a free renewal offer: A free renewal does not include any changes or updates to your listing's text or photos A free renewal does not get you the customary "bump" to the top of your region or category, which means you won't be shown among the most recent vendor listings on the offbeatbride.com homepage The offer stands for the duration of 2020, with all free renewals expiring 12/31/2020 This is an offer for a free renewal, not a free listing. If you've never been listed in the Offbeat Bride Vendor Guide, this isn't for you.

Read more Like y'all, my business has been decimated by Coronavirus, so if you have the resources available and want to support Offbeat Bride staying online, by all means: I welcome new listings (use coupon code quarantini for 25% off!) and paid renewals for existing listings! But for all my colleagues who are deeply struggling, it's my honor to use what little platform I still have to send some abundance and generosity your way. I believe it's important to share what you've got, while you've still got it… I figure, if this ship is sinking, I want to go down with love and generosity and confetti cannons blasting. I believe in weird love, I believe in offbeat weddings, and I believe in all of you!
