cover-2013-2014When she launched Southern Maryland Weddings in December 2002, Founder and CEO Kimberly Bean had two goals: simplify the wedding planning process for brides and help local wedding service providers grow their businesses. Southern Maryland was often lumped into the “Greater Washington” area by other bridal guides, and there was no central location that listed wedding service providers in Anne Arundel, Calvert, Charles, Prince George’s, and St. Mary’s counties.

Since then, Southern Maryland Weddings has become the go-to source for local couples planning their dream wedding day. Through our website, blog, enewsletters, and annual print edition, we offer planning tools and advice, the latest wedding trends, and information about local wedding service providers in the four Southern Maryland counties. We strive to keep our publications local and write about local trends, wedding news, and vendors from those four counties. Southern Maryland Weddings also helps to promote several local bridal shows, another way for area couples and vendors to connect.

Southern Maryland Weddings also serves wedding vendors from the four counties. Our website and publications allow local wedding service providers the opportunity to reach their target audience — Southern Maryland brides and grooms – and to network with each other. Our monthly newsletter offers tips for learning new technologies, keeping your business current, and growing your small business online and offline.

Southern Maryland Weddings continues to grow. The site averages 30,000 to 35,000 page views per month, and our annual print edition is sought after by brides and local wedding service providers. We have brand recognition throughout Southern Maryland among brides and wedding service providers.
