I thought I’d take a minute to talk about the rules and general administration at the association’s private Facebook group.

  1. There are no brides and grooms in the group. The group is an industry only “trade” group. Ads posted promoting services and products to brides and grooms are deleted.
  2. All posts are moderated. That’s right, either I or one of the other administrators of the group review every post. If your post is an advertisement promoting your services and products to brides and grooms it is deleted.
  3. Posts are approved, if they are approved and meet our guidelines, usually within 24 hours. Sometimes faster, sometimes it’s a few days if there are a lot of posts to approve.
  4. You don’t need to be a member of the International Association of Wedding Industry Professionals to join the group. All you have to be is somehow connected professionally to the wedding industry. The association has a PRIVATE PRIVATE group for members who only get that access after they have joined.
  5. If you tricked me and got into the group, and now are trying to sell Ray Ban sunglasses or weight loss wraps, you’ll be removed and banned from the group.
  6. If you provide, sell, offer marketing services to those in the wedding industry, and you’ve never introduced yourself to me, in other words, I have no idea who you are, either call me and introduce yourself (yes, on the phone at (978) 325-2983), or expect your post to be deleted. Do you crash parties too?
  7. If you post, or reply to a post, be nice. Be respectful of others and their opinions – it’s the right thing to do.
  8. If you’d like to introduce yourself to the group after joining please do! Include a link to your website in addition to a brief description of what you do and where.
  9. If you have any questions about the rules you can drop me a line via FB messenger. I’ll get back to you as quickly as possible.
  10. If you are not a member of the association, please take a minute to check out what we offer at this link.
  11. Last but not least, thank you to everyone who has joined. As of June 1st, 2016 we have over 8000 members!
