This idea is part of a group of ideas related to weddings I had back when I got married and the following years. Not sure if they still relevant, but I hope it can help you find new ones.
Create a platform to connect soon to be wed couple to a wedding planner (or facilitate the planning for those who can’t afford one)
This idea and the next probably are pretty similar (and probably exist now) but you tell me if it is the case. The next idea I had was a platform that helps couples to find wedding planners, wedding photographers, dj, venues, caterers, florists, and more depending on their need.
Let’s be honest, I was the groom, so it was mostly my wife who did all the research to find all this. And my god it is a lot of work. It was almost a full-time job on top of her regular job. Sure you can cut the work by hiring a wedding planner, but if you don’t you will have a lot of work to do. That is why at the time I thought of a place where to find all of the things.
A place that aggregates all services you need with a link to their website, apps or portfolio. It could even include their price range. It may be a bit naive of me to think that everything could be in one place and that showing the price wouldn’t create a race to the bottom. However, you know what they say artists sell a good story not just a price range. If a videographer makes an epic video with your favorite songvs someone who makes a cheesy DVD only your grandma would like, maybe the first one is worth 6-10k vs the 2k for the second one.
I think a site like this is a great starting point and helps couples get a feel of what is out there and what they can do on their budget.
How could the site or app make money?
Ads and placement like kijiji or craigslist could be great. Perhaps have a premium service where couples pay a fee to have someone make all the first calls for them and book them meeting with caterers, photographers and dj.
Note that there are sites that do this, like The Knot https://www.theknot.com/ and https://theweddingplatform.com/, but they don’t include every type of provider and are not in my city.
Perhaps seeing that there is competition means that there is a market ripe for making that kind of app.
