We all know that Pinterest is taken over with wedding stuff, but Lover.ly takes the cake (pardon the pun). I stumbled upon this amazing not so little website on Mashable as they were comparing it to Pinterest.
Kellee Khalil, founder of Lover.ly, moved to New York City from Los Angeles two years ago to work with her sister at a bridal public relations company. Khalil was asked to be the maid of honor for her sister’s wedding. As she was coming up with ideas from wedding blogs and sharing her ideas with the bridesmaids, she found difficult organizing everything so she wanted to come up with another way. That’s when she came up with Lover.ly. It is based in New York with only seven employees. I love it!
“We are trying to make wedding planning online easier and image discovery better,” Khalil said.
So now you’re asking, how is this different from Pinterest? Lover.ly does not allow its users to upload their own pictures so the site will stay searchable and beautiful. Unlike Pinterest, the site works with 32 wedding blog partners such as Wedding Chicks, Snippet & Ink, The Brides Cafe and famous wedding planner, Mindy Weiss.-Mashable
A really great wedding planner that I personally know, Kelly Absher with K.S. Absher Social & Event Planning, uses Lover.ly as a place for “great ideas and inspiration” because he too, recognizes the great resource. In fact, if you mention This blog post he will give you a free VIP for your big day! You can contact him through email at email@example.com, or on Facebook.
