V. Targeted Advertising Without Interruptions

Unlike The Knot and WeddingWire, Nearlywed does not participate in showcasing multiple advertisers on any sponsored content. Your content is yours alone! We believe that your business deserves the opportunity to display your content on Nearlywed without any other advertiser or competitive vendor getting in the way. Our community of vendors is a conglomeration of unique and special brands, and we appreciate them each for what they individually bring to the table. At Nearlywed, we believe your brand should receive a viewer’s full attention, without the confusion of noisy and competitive popup advertising. Additional advertising clutters the page and creates a distracting atmosphere for site viewers. At Nearlywed, we genuinely want to promote a user-friendly experience for both our vendors and our visitors. Other sites may prioritize top dollar, but we prioritize you! Don’t allow yourself to settle for less than what you deserve, and definitely don’t allow advertisers to take your money and not prioritize your brand and outreach.
