She Wanted To Keep Helping Brides Plan Their Long Island Weddings | About Claudia CopquinReviewed by G.E. Masana on Jul 11Rating:
Let me introduce you to someone devoted to helping you, the bride.
When Newsday shuttered its wedding magazine, “Long Island Weddings,” back in 2008, Managing Editor Claudia Copquin faced the question, “what to do next?”
With ten years of experience working with long island weddings, and in that time acquiring a wealth of knowledge regarding resources for brides on long island, Claudia knew she wanted to keep helping brides plan their weddings.
That “somehow” manifested itself as a blog:
“GettingMarriedOnLongIsland.com” the only blog of its kind devoted entirely to weddings on long island where she continually answers wedding related questions from brides-to-be.
An award winning journalist and author, Claudia’s also written for The New York Times, Newsday, Distinction Magazine, Long Island Parent, Crain’s New York Business, the Los Angeles Times and the Huffington Post.
Her best selling wedding planning book, “The Bride’s Year Ahead,” now in its second edition, is a month-by-month planner with useful tips for brides-to-be, such as questions to ask reception halls, what tasks to give to your wedding attendants; what you need to know about hiring a wedding planner; how to get the most out of bridal shows; key points regarding shopping for wedding rings, among other numerous tidbits.
