Because theknot.com forgot about Spokane, WA…
This is the blog for Spokane area brides. That’s right, just the Spokane area. For brides who know that Dick’s restaurant is where the seagulls hang out; for girls who know that David’s Bridal is in the Valley and who know that Northtown Mall is slowly plummeting to mall oblivion.
Yes, this is the blog for Spokane area brides.
Spokane Apple Brides was born from my experience of planning a wedding in Spokane. I was married last October (2009) at the Davenport Hotel and found Spokane’s wedding presence online… awful. And unlike most US cities, huge sites like The Knot and Martha Stewart didn’t even mention Spokane. I couldn’t find a comprehensive supplier directory anywhere. There were no pictures of venues, price lists, cake portfolios and most of all I couldn’t find reviews from REAL brides about the vendors I was considering.
My name is Rachel, born and raised in Spokane. I am currently editor of B Wedding Magazine in Dublin, Ireland, where I live with my new husband Mark. And how do I intend to author a Spokane wedding site from Ireland? Well… I spent 24 years in Spokane, just planned a wedding there, visit frequently and have plans to move back sometime soon, I might as well be an expert!
My goal is to make this a blog for Spokane area brides to source everything they need to make wise decisions about their wedding. Where they can see wedding venues, photographer portfolios, get tips and hear from other Spokane brides. I hope to use my knowledge of the industry, input from the brides of Spokane and communication with wedding suppliers to give well-rounded information and resources.
Thanks for stopping by!
