Google+ Welcome to the New!! - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

Friends!! We are so very, very excited to welcome you to our new home on the web! Isn’t she pretty??

One of our 2013 company goals was to launch an updated website that reflected our Southern core and greatly enhanced the experience of our users (y’all!). After many months of brainstorming and many weeks of manually reformatting six years of content (mercy), we’re so proud to debut our new design.

A few things to note as you take a stroll around our new digs:

Our newest friends now have a one-stop shop to get acquainted with all things SW. Our Newly Engaged page points you to the most popular parts of our site as well as links to some of our most helpful advice posts.

The Blue Ribbon Vendor Directory has been COMPLETELY revamped. It’s now much easier to sort and search for vendors — yippee!! I also love that each vendor’s listing now includes a few sentences on why, exactly, the SW gals love him or her, as well as links to any past posts featuring their work on our blog.

The Weddings section has also undergone a complete overhaul! With so many hundreds of gorgeous celebrations under our belts, it was a shame they weren’t more easily searchable. Well, no more! We’ve added improved color and season filters, and my personal favorite — the Southern Thang filter!! You’ll just have to go explore than one yourself to see what it’s all about :)

The Honey List is now infinitely more user-friendly — simply refine by state to find magical destinations, then click on the photo to go straight to our original posts with the full scoop.

I’ve saved the best for last — the Editorial section has undergone a complete reinvention. Our former editorial galleries were, unfortunately, pretty much a waste of space. They did nothing to show off the gorgeous work of so many talented folks! Now, though, I could not be more proud of them. In addition to showing off the images, they do an amazing job of telling the story of each editorial — from inspiration board through to completion. You can also sort by color and volume to find just what you’re looking for. If you only explore one part of the new site, make it this one!!

And holy smokes, y’all! I haven’t even mentioned our new LOGO! Many thanks to the talented Jess of Magpie Paper Works for that beauty!

With this revamp, our goal was to make everything about the site simpler, easier, and, gosh darn it, just a little bit more Southern and adorable. Thanks to the help of the talented team at Flosites, we think we succeeded. And we VERY much hope y’all enjoy the changes.

We’re still working out bugs here and there, but be sure to let us know if you see something wonky! And stay tuned — our brand new mobile version is coming soon! For now, tell us — what’s your favorite part of the new site?? We’d love to hear!!
