Founder Meghan Ely launched OFD Consulting over 8 years ago, combining her experience in the wedding industry with her formal training in and love of public relations.
The leading expert in wedding PR education, she pens regular columns in a number of national industry publications and is a frequent speaker at national conferences. 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, Brides.com, Bridal Guide, the Knot, Out.com, Martha Stewart Weddings and WeddingWire.com. They have completed 500 real wedding submissions earning features locally, nationally, internationally and in niche publications.
The OFD Collective was born of a desire to meet the needs of a niche group of wedding professionals ready to take the press plunge and represent themselves. These experts have the credentials and portfolios to share, but value the ability to fast track their efforts by aligning themselves with a talented publicity team.
We offer the education and resources that our members need to gain the exposure they desire. Customize your OFD Collective experience by choosing from multiple tiers of service and go at your own speed. With our guidance you can take your business to a whole new level. That’s our singular purpose: to marry education with action.
Wedding submissions are still like the Wild West for both editors and wedding pros. Different editors require different things, and different vendors supply different information. I cannot count the number of times each month that I’m chasing down social media handles or additional information about a wedding. That’s why I love working with Meghan and her team at OFD. She has taken the time to get to know what I’m looking for in a wedding submission and always organizes the exact information that I need to make the process of prepping and publishing a wedding easy and seamless. I wish ever wedding vendor would work with OFD for their submissions. It would just make all of our lives easier!
