The Magic of an Up-to-Date and Full Listing

Your listing is often the first impression couples will have of your business. An up-to-date and comprehensive listing not only showcases what you have to offer but also builds trust and excitement. Here’s how to make sure your listing stands out:

  1. Captivating Images

Images are the heart and soul of your listing. You have the freedom to add unlimited photos, so make the most of it! Include a variety of shots:

  • People and No People: Show the venue both empty and during a wedding.
  • Different Styles: Highlight rustic, classical, modern, and all other styles to appeal to the taste of different couples.
  • Wedding Types: Showcase indoor and outdoor setups, intimate and large gatherings, and cultural ceremonies.
  • Top Two Images: These are the first images couples see, so choose your most stunning shots for the top of your page and featured picture.
  • Food and Beverage: Tempt couples with mouth-watering images of your catering options.
  1. Engaging Videos

A picture is worth a thousand words, but a video can make couples fall in love. Adding a video is super easy with a YouTube URL. Show off your venue in action and let couples imagine themselves celebrating their special day with you. This can be your promo video or a real wedding video from one of your couples that you have permission to use.
