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 are at all relevant in 2022, but I hope it can help you find new ones.
When we were planning our wedding, I thought of the idea to make a blog about the process and of the actual wedding. However, once you’re in the motion of planning the big day and the actual day of the wedding, you have some much more to think about than this. That’s why I wasn’t sure about posting this idea. Probably because I find it boring, generic and if we are thinking of a side project, how can you make money with it? Even looking at my initial ideas list it was struck out.
But when writing about the three previous ideas (Ideas #14, #15 & #16) made me think about it a little more. There was still something there and I had some friends who did blog for their wedding. This process makes your friend and family more involved and it can be useful to future couples what to expect when planning. It gives you a time capsule of this moment forever on the internet. (or until you decide to stop paying your hosting fees).
It could go with a previous idea like when user are crowdsourcing their wedding (idea #16), the platform could offer a place for the user to host their blog to let users share about what they’ve found, decide, give pictures of the results, etc.
While the main point of this idea is to share your experience and help others in their process, there still are ways to make money or at least maybe reduce the cost of your wedding. The platform lets users have ads on their blog. Another way, users could have used affiliate links or referral to the service they’ve used and receive a commission for the referral.
