Elizabeth is great at asking questions you don't necessarily see in wedding planning books and magazines

She writes up a bunch of questions in a Word document, sends them for you to answer

Final Q&A lands on its OWN page with a link to you! See many examples here:
Wedding DJ, Romance vendor, tuxedo's, card storage, wedding invites

If an article is already written for your industry, but you have different answers, send them on and we can incorporate them.

Why you should consider advertising with us


  • We rank very high for most cities/states for premarital counseling.
  • We receive traffic from a highly ranked, affiliated marriage counseling site. If you are interested, eligible and qualify to be a marriage friendly therapist you get a FREE listing on The First Dance.
  • Haven't tried advertising or find the wedding industry too expensive? One couple session pays for an entire year listing.
  • We offer a unique traffic base beyond marriage prep because our focus is on relationships and wedding details that give us good traffic. This means you get a unique range of couples viewing our website as compared to the traditional wedding directories that mostly list logistical information and a lot of ads.


Couples do want help to prepare for their marriage and don’t know where to turn.  Wedding advertising costs are very expensive for premarital counselors trying to reach engaged couples. Together we can build our network rather than each of us individually trying to reach the same couples.
