Wedding Resources

VAWE Network is all about providing easy access to local wedding resources for brides and grooms. Everything that VAWE Network does for engaged couples is FREE! I am not a wedding planner and we have no services to sell you. Many online searches charge wedding vendors $350 to $750 a month to be listed on their sites. This cost goes directly into the fees you pay for your wedding. VAWE Network is only $200 a year for wedding vendors to join. If keeping weddings affordable and fair is important to you then please consider hiring a VAWE Network member for your wedding. Before you hire anyone make sure they are a VAWE Network member.

If you need help finding your wedding venue or vendors please register in our Wedding In A Box section. You may qualify for the luxury gift box worth over $2200 in gifts, offers & exclusive wedding savings. Call me directly to get free help starting the planning process! Didi Russell, your wedding matchmaker 540-395-1752
