What We Do

Wedding Public Relations for Growing Businesses

What we do
at OFD

Thanks to your hard-earned experience (you’ve got stories), you have evergreen insight about how to run a successful wedding business.

You have the foresight to predict what’s coming next in the wedding industry—and solutions to help other businesses navigate change.

And of course, you have a portfolio brimming with stunning weddings that merit attention. (We’re not just saying that. They really do.)

OFD Consulting is one of the few PR firms focused exclusively on wedding public relations. We’ve spent 15 years cultivating relationships with the press on a local, national, and even global level, especially editors at wedding publications.

When it comes to growing your business, we believe that positioning yourself as an industry leader is just as important as getting your weddings published. Our connections in the wedding industry press and with event organizers throughout the industry are unparalleled. 

No matter what stage your wedding business is at, we have PR solutions tailored to your needs.

Get Published

The industry’s first-of-its-kind PR membership, OFD Collective includes curated PR leads, monthly webinars on PR topics, regular office hours with the OFD team, and a library of templates, interviews with members of the media, articles, and more.

The Collective is divided into three tracks, so that you can tackle your current goal: get quoted in the press as an expert in your niche, publish more weddings, or book more wedding industry speaking gigs.

Become a National Speaker

Speaking at industry events positions you as the go-to in your niche. But if you’ve never done it before, you probably have a lot of questions: What events are a good fit for me? What makes a successful pitch? How do I figure out what equipment to bring?

The Wedding Industry Speakers Course runs once a year. New speakers get a crash course in how to pitch, prep, and present at special events.

B2B Wedding PR Coaching Intensives

If you’re an established wedding business looking to jump-start your PR efforts or get the most out of a high-profile event, we offer B2B coaching intensives.

Each intensive includes an in-depth audit of your existing PR plan and materials, one-on-one coaching sessions with Meghan, and an detailed action plan with recommendations, templates, and hand-picked resources to help you define and refine your approach to wedding PR.

Speaking and Education

Our founder, Meghan Ely, has spoken at events such as Wedding MBA, Engage! Summit, Be Sage, and the DWP Congress, among many others. She has previously been named the national NACE Speaker of the Year, and she has been honored by local chapters of both NACE and MPI. 

Meghan’s talks incorporate what she’s learned in 15 years running OFD and managing public relations for wedding industry clients, as well as her time spent in event planning and her ongoing research into what’s new and next for the industry.

She takes on a limited number of speaking engagements each year so that she can tailor her talks to their audience.
