Wedding planning has now become a lot easier with Arabia Weddings – a specialized comprehensive online platform for the wedding industry through its website www.arabiaweddings.com. Arabia Weddings targets prospective brides and grooms, in Jordan initially, with a vision to expand into the Arab World starting in the year 2012.
Arabia Weddings addresses the growing needs of engaged couples across the region while planning for their Big Day. Presently, the process of finding and booking suitable service providers and seeking advice to help them plan their wedding is too stressful; time consuming; frustrating, confusing and costly. Supported by Oasis 500, the MENA region’s premier seed investment and acceleration company for the ICT and digital media sectors, Arabia Weddings is a one stop online platform offering a wide range of benefits; valuable information,, innovative planning tools and great money-saving deals to brides and grooms-to-be. “We aspire to become the region’s leading bilingual website that specializes in all matters related to wedding,” said Samar Shawareb, Founder and Managing Director of Arabia Weddings.
“The easy-to-navigate website promises to transform the wedding planning process into an easy, efficient, exciting and a more affordable process,” added Shawareb. “Social media has carefully been integrated into the website to enable Arabia Weddings to become the social media hub for the weddings industry, offering couples from across the region a platform to share and exchange their experiences, rate and comment on suppliers, create their own websites, post and share their photos, use online planning tools, ask for expert advice and enjoy wonderful deals and products posted on its pages,” she elaborated.
“Arabia Weddings stood out as an excellent company for Oasis 500 to invest in due to its focus, vision, passion, and the great competitive advantage that it enjoys, as its founders know the weddings industry quite well through their off-line business that has been organizing Jordan’s Wedding Show for a number of years,” explained Usama Fayyad, Chairman of Oasis 500. “We believe that the significant negotiated savings to benefit couples and their families offered through the website, will be a major driver of interest and engagement,” added Fayyad.
Arabia Weddings plans to release its Arabic version of the website at the end of November 2010.
