Founder Meghan Ely, CWIP launched OFD Consulting over 10 years ago, combining her experience in the wedding industry with her formal training in and love of public relations.
Over time, Meghan Ely, CWIP (Certified Wedding Industry Professional) became regarded as the leading expert in wedding PR education, penning regular columns in a number of national industry publications, and serving as a frequent keynote speaker at conferences globally. A natural mentor with an innate ability to foster growth, she has taken OFD Consulting from its modest early days and created a top-tier team of publicists who share her passion for public relations and obsession with all things “wedding.”
This power team has secured press exposure for clients in the New York Times, Martha Stewart Weddings, Brides.com, People.com, the Knot, Green Wedding Shoes, Ruffled, Love Inc, Munaluchi, and Maharani, among many others. Over the last decade, they have produced 800+ real wedding submissions earning features locally, nationally, internationally, and in niche publications. More recently, the team launched Wedding Industry Speakers, home to some of the most prolific experts in the industry.
Founded in 2017, the OFD Collective was born of a desire to meet the needs of wedding professionals ready to take the press plunge and represent themselves. Many may even have press wins to their name but value the ability to fast track their efforts by aligning themselves with a talented wedding publicity team.
Over a year’s time, this wedding PR membership, the first of its kind in the industry, was developed by a team that included 50+ beta testers who helped shape the offerings to become the most robust publicity resource available in the market today.
These days, the Collective is a vibrant group of wedding professionals globally, gaining the exposure they desire. Members customize their experience by choosing from multiple tiers of service and then go at their own speed.

I’ve been a member of the OFD Collective for about 6 months. The learning you can do on your own time is amazing, the webinars are super informative and the press leads are priceless. I’ve been quoted and published 7 times already and look forward to expanding my PR reach!
