Below is a step by step explanation of our program and services which I will go over with you on the phone.


1: What is The American Wedding Guide (TAWG)?

TAWG is an iPad sized wedding planner that is given out as a free gift to Brides-to-be within Fairfield and New Haven County.

It’s broken down into 3 sections:

  • Section 1:   Company Display Ads: Our team interviews and chooses 7-10 local CT vendors in Fairfield and New Haven County, CT to display their company ad within the appropriate category section.
  • Section 2:  Editorial Section: This is where we add useful planning editorial with helpful articles from our experienced wedding vendors, as well as, necessary information the bride must learn.
  • Section 3:  Wedding Planning Worksheets: A section with timetables and worksheets to help keep her on track. Our guide is purse-sized to be carried daily. Once she writes into it, she will hold onto it and refer back to your company ad when she is ready to book with you.

2: Where is the wedding planner distributed?

  • Bridal Shops: Our wedding planner is distributed within Fairfield and New Haven County as a free gift to brides-to-be.
  • Local Bridal Shows: Our charismatic team attends 40+ bridal shows a year to distribute our wedding planner as well as consult with the bride regarding her planning. (see bridal show list below)
  • Participating Vendors:  Our family of vendors love handing out our helpful planner. Brides love it, use it, and carry it in their purse to always keep handy to use as they plan their important details of their wedding. They also appreciate the caring gift from the vendor. Organization is KEY in wedding planning!

3: When do you print and how many copies?

  • We print twice a year: January and July
  • 10-15,000 copies of The American Wedding Guide are printed yearly.

4: Some more perks and advantages

  • We give away a free all-inclusive honeymoon every year
  • We hand out prizes to brides at our bridal show booth. Extra promotion available.*
  • We’re not pushy. We simply recommend “CT’s BEST WEDDING MERCHANTS” in our guide to local CT brides.
  • The bride will keep the guide until she needs your service. Does not get overwhelmed. Is completely at her leisure to call upon the best wedding vendors to help create her perfect wedding. 🙂
  • Great thing about TAWG: You will have the option to reach out to our brides directly as our partner, by utilizing our extensive bridal referral database.

“The key to investing in quality advertising is to be certain the advertisement is getting the right exposure at the right time to the right clientele.”
