FAO Web Ed-YAYW Ball/Big Party/Or Meet up sponsored by YAYW?

Hi Web Ed

I know this has probably been asked before but due to hearing positive feedback from a friend who suggested this to the Moderators on another wedding forum I thought I would ask away anyway.

I wonder what the possibility might be of YAYW sponsoring or arranging a venue to hold a 'Big YAYW Users Ball/Party' on a National scale. Users could be invited to buy tickets to attend the event which would of course cover any costs to yourselves for hiring a venue, entertainment etc.

We arrange meet ups ourselves on regional scales but we never really seem to be offered the chance to do anything which YAYW has coffed up for....I am sure many of the regular users and contributors to the forums would be up for this kind of thing and I think it would also help you to show just how grateful you are to your users and contributors for sticking with YAYW and we all know how a lot of the threads we take part in on the site all add to some of the content within the magazine too!

Personally I think it would be a great way for you to retain users as well as attract potential new ones.

Would be interested to hear what your thoughts are...especially after all the conrtoversy on the fourms as of late.

Many thanks

Mrs Heenan

    Oh yes please! Any excuse to buy a ball dress. Or perhaps we could all wear our wedding dresses like a bunch of crazy Miss Havishams! Think of the publicity!
  • Thanks tronski.....even if it was an annual thing I just think it would be nice to get a little something back! I know there are competitions and stuff on here but I mean I can count on one hand the amount of people that I know who have won anything...come on give us a partyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!! x

    Worth a try,, Maybe they will agree to try and make things a bit better after all the rubbish going on lately.
  • They could even have a photographer attend and take pics and have a spread in the mag just to show how they look after their could be fantastic publicity!!!! x

    Fabulous idea.

    I think a number of the ladies on here would love to attend a national event and would be more than happy to purchase tickets etc.

    Imagine the PR opportunities for Y&YW - they are endless.

    Fab idea Mrs H! It might help drag YAYW's name out of the dirt a tad, encourage new members (nice ones) and perhaps gain a few prospective readers. Its a win-win situation for everyone image X

    i think this is a great idea and one that could benefit y&yw and their advertisers greatly. it could be like a cross between a wedding show and bridal shower, allowing advertisers to market their products in a different, softer way.

    The dress code could be 'wear your wedding dress'!

    Would obvioulsy only apply to people who have already got married.

    Hmmmm......maybe not eh?! x

    HaHa! This would be the clean pics - the rest would end up in FHM or something! ;\)

    P.S. I love the idea of being 'radiant'. I will aim for this look in future!

    Good idea!!! image xxx
  • I think this is a superb idea - as said I have met others at "regional level " - have 2 new best friends in my little town because of this site (and our hubbys are mates with eachother now too!) - have been to 3 yayw weddings and another at the end of the year - and met some lovely lovely ladies. There are still plenty more to meet....

    Yayw peeps - please help others to have as much fun through yayw as I have had, and get us mingling in the flesh.
