Sees Increase in New Memberships for Southern Ontario’s Premier Wedding Service Directory This January

Caledonia, Canada, January 27, 2010 --( “It appears that wedding planning slows for nothing...except the holiday season” states a spokesperson from The Happy Bride, citing the dramatic increase in new memberships since January 1st, 2010 after a typically slow December. The Happy Bride reported that new memberships dropped substantially for the months of November and December when compared to previous months and has more than doubled for the month of January, with only two thirds of January behind them. The Happy Bride believes this can only mean 1 or 2 things. One, less people pop the question in the months leading up to the holiday season and save the engagement ring as a holiday surprise and two, there are fewer brides browsing the internet in search of wedding planning resources during the holiday months. “It is likely their browsing becomes more gift buying and holiday specific”, states the spokesperson.

Launched in September of 2008, has made wedding planning easier for over 1200 southern Ontario brides. Designed with ease of use in mind, caters to just about anyone planning a wedding, technically inclined or not. Featuring a full directory of wedding related services located in southern Ontario, brides and grooms alike can access everything from wedding cakes to photographers. members are given free access to fully customizable planning tools with their membership.

A spokesperson for The Happy Bride reports “we’re glad to see new memberships on the rise again, but we always expects lower membership rates over the holiday months and increases in the New Year due to new engagements and resumed planning activity”.
