Public Relations in the Wedding + Event Industry

Pulp & Ink hired GlitzPR & Marketing to PR this event. We had a great turnout for this event and a portion of the proceeds for items purchased were donated to Crohn’s & Colitis and Chicago House.

I eat, sleep and drink the wedding + event industry.  I have fallen so deeply in love with it that I started a boutique public relations firm earlier this year, GlitzPR & Marketing.  As I was doing my research, I noticed there are several PR firms that are dedicated to the wedding industry, but not any that specialize in this industry in the Midwest.  I understand if you are the wedding professional who seeks clients in California, New York or the Caribbean islands but the Midwest, the surrounding area and South Florida (my latest project) needs love too.

There are MANY public relation firms in Chicago and the surrounding area, but how many specialize solely in the wedding and event industry?  Public relations is for the business professional who seeks to be published in magazines targeted to everyone, local/national television shows or bridal magazines without having to “advertise.”  GlitzPR & Marketing desires to do that for you but specifically focusing on the wedding and event industry professionals and small business market.

My approach in 2013 is to see more diversity in the wedding and event industry.  I’m always seeing the same wedding planners “plan” events for various hotels, stores and magazines because they advertise with these magazines.  But there is a lot of “unseen” talent in the Midwest and unfortunately their work is not being seen by potential brides and grooms-to-be because they are not in the socialite scene or they are not an advertiser. I want to help, that’s my desire and passion.

GlitzPR & Marketing only takes on one client per the industry category the client specializes in.  For instance, if you are a wedding photographer, we will not do PR for any other photographer so long as you are our client.  We do this so that our full attention is on you and/or your business.

GlitzPR & Marketing secured Grey Goose to sponsor An Intimate Bridal Affair Chicago with two signature drinks for the event.

  • We work with talented wedding photographers, venues, wedding planners, florists and restaurants to help them get the exposure they seek and stand out from the rest.
  • We introduce our clients to the who’s who in the wedding and event industry and ensure invites to all the wedding and event industry related events.
  • We secure sponsorships for events.
  • We work with top bridal magazines, online publications, local news stations and newspapers to showcase your creative work to thousands of engaged couples.

Some other notable perks we offer:

Media Relations | Editorial Placement | Email Campaigns | Press Releases | Event Marketing | Social Media | Visual Design | Event Planning | Launch Parties | Fashion Shows Grand Openings

GlitzPR & Marketing also specializes in social media and social networking.  Our social media and social networking approach has been proven and is effective.  In 2012, we sold out every event we were hired to promote and worked on.  We understand how social media and social networking works and we guarantee results.

Are you someone in Chicago, Miami or the surrounding area who seeks any of these fabulous things for your business? If you answered yes, then allow us to tell your story. Until next time
