Start with the #1 Bridal Website in Canada ...

bride.ca reaches more Canadian brides than any other media property.

As of January 2010,
  • bride.ca surpassed weddingbells.ca in internet "reach", to claim "most-popular" status in Canada (source: Alexa.com).
  • bride.ca is logging ~60,000 visits by ~40,000 Canadian brides monthly.
    That is ~20% of the total bridal "population" in Canada, every month!(source: Google Analytics).

... then Double It!

bride.ca is the flagship property of a much larger national network of wedding websites (BridalNetwork.ca), by leading regional magazines and trade shows, complimenting its national reach with direct access to specific local markets.

  4. Site Features & Advertorials

    Depending on your product or service, you may benefit greatly by an editorialised endorsement from bride.ca, or simply a feature/reminder on our blog. Our average story is read by hundreds/thousands of Canadian brides, either our regular followers or because they routinely rank extremely well with search-engines.

    Example: our DIY Wedding Invitations Guide from last year.

    Rates: Blog features themselves are technically free, except for any writer's fees (usually ~$75). What is charged is the link to your website from the article itself. Effectively, the article will drive increased traffic to your existing PPC link - so if it is not read, or the readers are not interested enough to try and reach you, then the feature is free!
