Matchology is a fast, effective new way of submitting your work to more than 30 of the world’s top wedding blogs. Designed for wedding pros like you, it fits seamlessly into your existing workflow and uses custom matching technology to pair your event with publications that are the perfect fit.

 

Think of it as the dating app of wedding submissions! You’ll upload your event or shoot, using our intuitive system, and provide a few key details about it, such as category, style and setting. There’s a single questionnaire and universal submission requirements across all blogs, plus you can use one of your existing systems to upload pictures, including Dropbox, Pass, SmugMug or Pixieset. Our fancy algorithm will work its magic and match you with the publications that are the best fit. No more submitting blindly! You’ll choose which blog(s) to submit to, and from there, you’ll be guided in the publication process if they accept, and kept informed all the way.

Matchology’s user-friendly dashboard will seamlessly integrate into your workflow, with features like auto-fill vendor crediting, status updates by email, one-click resubmission and copyright protection.

Aisle Society is a collective of wedding blogs from around the world, with a combined reach of over 16 million followers. Our vision is simple: to provide a comprehensive resource of the best wedding content online, while helping to propel our industry forward.

As wedding bloggers, we know how important it is to get your work seen and published - and we love featuring beautiful weddings and styled shoots. But we also know that the submission process can be frustrating and time consuming - and who has extra time these days? Over the years, we’ve seen a massive shift in social media, publishing and marketing, but technology hasn’t always kept up - especially when it comes to the submission process. We challenged ourselves to come up with a solution, and Matchology is the result! It’s a game-changer for both editors and wedding pros, and will allow us all to put our energy back into what matters: connecting with couples.

Aisle Society is owned and funded by its members. Our collective was created by a group of strong women from around the world who saw a need to effect change and promote excellence in our industry, but like you we're all small business owners. Funding Matchology ourselves would take far longer than the market demands. We know you want it yesterday, and crowdfunding is quite simply the most efficient way to get this time-saving tool into your hands, faster. Our developers are primed and ready to go, and with your help, we’ll be able to launch before June wedding bells start ringing!

Kickstarter is a crowdfunding platform that allows anyone (including friends, family and strangers!) to bring projects like Matchology to life. You choose a pledge amount and commit to contribute that amount of money in return for a reward. Kickstarter is all or nothing, which means that if we don’t reach or exceed our target amount by the end of the campaign, we won’t receive any of the funding - until we do, you won't be charged a cent. All donations - including the $1 ones! - are helpful and received with happy hearts, so go ahead, click the green ‘Back This Project’ button and make our day! (And don’t forget to share news of our campaign with your friends and fellow wedding pros!)

 

Rewards are available at a number of different levels - we’re so grateful for all your support!

Risks and challenges

As with any web application, there may be unforeseen bugs or issues that require support before Matchology can go live. However, we’ve been working with our development team for some time - they’re the same ones who built our innovative website! We know them, we trust them, and together we have the expertise and experience to overcome any issues that arise.
