Project Description

What is Vendr?

Vendr's mission is to streamline the wedding planning process for everyone, by creating ideal matches between vendors and couples through highly personalized criteria. Plus, we’re committed to elevating the wedding industry as a whole, through education, high standards of service, and community development.

How does it all work?

First: Couples will download the app and fill out their basic information. Ex. Pronouns, Profession, Name, and Desired Wedding Date

Second: Our couples are walked through a personality profile so that our algorithm can pin down the best match. 

Third: Clients will swipe left or right on photos that they like. By doing this our app can pick up on their unique style. 

Last: Matched! The Couple gets three vendor profiles to choose from. 

What's in it for the clients? 

  • Saves from the tedious, time consuming, and overwhelming process of researching and talking to multiple vendors

  • Delivers a curated, highly personalized experience

  • Allows them to literally swipe right on their ideal wedding

  • Provides advice and helpful industry info based on their budget and region

  • Gives assurance their options are only vetted, high quality vendors

Many couples report having to speak to seven or eight vendors before finding their ideal match. With the average couple booking at least six vendors for their wedding, this means they’re speaking to over 50 people before the wedding planning really starts. By the time a client has found the right person, they are often frustrated, confused, and already tired of wedding planning.

 

What's in it for my company?

  • Saves time wasted on working to find clients that are a great fit

  • Creates an equal playing field for all parties to find their ideal matches, without having to “pay to play”

  • Rewards for excellent service, craftsmanship, and reputation, rather than membership spend

  • Fosters a community of quality professionals who are stronger by banding together

  • Provides opportunities for professional development

 

"We can't do this without our community. 5 years ago the New York Wedding community welcomed me with open arms. I've danced with you, drank with you, cried with you, stressed with you, recommended you to clients, and now I'm ready to start this journey but I can't do it without this community."

- Carissa Campbell, CEO and Founder of Vendr Weddings

 

We started Vendr after many long rant sessions about the problems within our industry, and lucky for us the best change comes from within. 

So join the next generation of wedding planning! Hit that campaign button to be a part of this union and start moving forward into the future of wedding planning now.

The Project FAQs

  

Our Mission:

 

Vendr is focused on bringing quality clients to our vendors through streamlined technology and innovative connections. We value bringing educational and recreational opportunities to our vendors to promote well being and success. Vendr promises to bring the best of the industry to searching couples. Our goal is to match our couples and wedding vendors based on style and personality. 

We promise to consistently curate couples and vendors without discriminating based on Race, Sex, Family Background, Economic Status, or Religion. We will hold all of our vendors and couples to this same standard. We promise to unite the best in the industry, and empower all of our vendors to succeed through our program. 

 

Frequently Asked Questions: 

 

What requirements do I need to meet to be on the App? 

All Applicants must have: 

  • at least 7 years experience in the Wedding Industry 

  • 3 years experience as a company 

  • An average of at least a 4.5 star rating on all current listings

  • Proof of Insurance 

Applicants may have one of these requirements waived based on recommendation/referral from a wedding Vendor that is already listed with Vendr Weddings. Vendr Weddings holds the right to disable any account based on performance or violating our terms of service. 

 

What are the benefits of Joining the App? 

In the next year we will be rolling out a tiered system which will give vendors access to a variety of rewards, networking opportunities, and benefits based on their App rating and sales.

 

I want to give to the campaign, but I don’t meet your requirements, can I still be a part of this? 

YES! We would love to have you. If you do not meet any of the current requirements we can recommend coaching services as well as professional developement to meet these requirements. If you already gave but have your application denied, your credits will still be active once you do meet the requirements. 

We also offer a variety of non membership rewards that you can take part in!



What will the pricing be once the App is live? 

There will be an application fee of $25 + a first year membership fee of $250. Yearly membership renewals will be offered at a discounted rate. 

Additional fees include a booking fee of $100 for each client booked. This rate is subject to change after the first year. 

 

Will there be a referral discount? 

Yes! We will be crediting your account $20 for each vendor that you recommend. This will count towards your booking fees or your membership fees. 

 

Is there any support for the client after they have booked all of their vendors?

Yes, we are working towards creating a reference page where all contracts and additional documents can be uploaded, as well as a home page for all vendor communication. 

 

Is this out there already? 

No, not in this way. Many online listings are just expensive listings, and many online blogs barely vet the vendors. Similar models have been tried by non-industry related companies, but no other company has put the support of the vendor and the convenience of the client in the forefront of their mission like we are. We truly want to foster good relationships  between clients and vendors to create industry standards and make it easier for our clients to connect with you.
