Get Married Media and RecreateMyNight Host Live Wedding in Times Square

As if bridal magazines and social networking sites weren’t addictive enough,  the publishers of Get Married magazine and GetMarried.com have teamed with New York startup RecreateMyNight to create Party On!, a site where the bride, groom and all the guests can post status updates and share wedding photos and videos from Facebook and Twitter.  Following the site’s launch on December 15th,  the inaugural event took place on New Year’s Eve with a live wedding in Times Square.

“We have a highly engaged audience on GetMarried.com that is also extremely active through social media.  As part of our mission to provide innovative solutions that enhance the wedding planning experience, Get Married’s Party On!™ is an exciting and natural fit for brides and their friends to document experiences through this exceptional use of social media,” said Stacie Francombe, founder and editor-in-chief of Get Married Media in a statement. “We are thrilled to bring Party On!™ to our fans and revelers across the globe so they can be a part of the Get Married in Time Square celebration—even from their own homes—as well as share their own memorable events.”

Bethany Philips and Geoffrey Dubie, two Marine reservists who met in Iraq, were chosen from over 2,000 couples to have their wedding streamed live during one of New York’s most celebrated events.  On the evening of December 31st, 632 people checked in to post photos and congratulate the couple while they exchanged vows.

Get Married Features Tablescape Challenge On Inaugural Cover

GM_Mag_Cover.jpgGet Married Media, a multi-media company focused on wedding planning, has revealed what will be on the cover for the inaugural issue of Get Married magazine, due on newsstands in October.

To create the perfect cover look, Get Married came up with a challenge. The magazine gave florist to the stars Mark Held a box of props and gave him one week to create a tablescape for eight people. His creation was shot by wedding and celebrity photographer Elizabeth Messina to create the perfect look for the first-ever issue of Get Married. And behind the scenes photos and video from the cover shoot will appear on GetMarried.com once the magazine hits newsstands.

Get Married has revealed a mock version of the cover (pictured) but is keeping the real thing under wraps until its newsstand debut.

Brides can get a free copy of the first Get Married magazine through the company’s Web site, and one bride will win the 8-piece Lenox china set that appears on the cover. The magazine will be published semiannually.
