10 Wedding Affiliate Program Choices for 2020

Hello there Sea Changers. Welcome back to my series of program lists to assist those of you looking to fund your sea change with affiliate marketing. Today we will journey into what is an extremely lucrative niche in the online world with 10 wedding affiliate program choices for 2020. Weddings are a massive industry with the average big day costing in excess of $15,000 – more once you factor the costs of those attending as well. This makes it a great area to investigate for those wishing to start an online business with weddings.

Keeping that in mind, as I run through them I am conscious that as this is potentially such a large niche, that the number of affiliate programs to choose from may be just as large. So how have I picked my best 10? Well… I really just wanted to give you a good cross section of what is out there so I did some searching around and checked a few out and chose them by looking at:

  • What they offer
  • Commission rates
  • Payment terms
  • Cookie duration
  • Application processes
  • Affiliate/Marketing materials provided

Before we start however, let’s have a look at what I mean by the term ‘wedding’ and how it can be incorporated within an affiliate marketing website…

What do we mean by Weddings?

Now to be honest, I actually thought long and hard about whether to do a list of wedding affiliate programs as one subject or to break it down – which I dare say I might still do in the very near future. There are just so many different areas to promote when it comes to weddings. However, in general, it is also a very good niche to work at from a one-stop-shop scenario. So for this post I have tried to cover a good cross section across some of the sub niches such as:

  • Dresses
  • Flowers
  • Invitations
  • Ceremony and reception management
  • General wedding planning

I do however note that I have discussed weddings in some of my other affiliate program lists as well. For some of these other options, please check out my check out my hotel and jewelry program lists.

What can affiliate marketers promote?

There are essentially no real barriers to what affiliate marketers can promote when it comes to weddings There are however some things to be aware of as you run your eye over affiliate program possibilities that may suit your site. These are:

  1. Know your audience, some purchasers are looking for specifics and want the best whilst others are hoping to just get hitched on a budget. Choose your affiliate sites accordingly.
  2. Purchasers of high end/expensive products (I know, that could be all of it) will not take risks if they don’t trust you or your affiliate site. Make sure the programs you choose are reputable and have good recourse options if the purchaser is not happy.
  3. Those looking for wedding packages etc. will need to know that they are going to get everything as promised so as not to jeopardize their big day (or worse, not turn up at all).
  4. Wedding dresses have to fit! – they just have to – make sure your affiliate program is able to meet these requirements.

That said, stats show that people will spend money on weddings online if it can make their lives easier so as long as you are meeting their needs and solving problems, then you are on the right track. And to give you a boost, let’s have a look at 10 programs that I have found below:

Amazon Associates

Alternatively, should you wish to set up your site up with a range from a few different brands or companies on the same site then you can do so via Amazon. Amazon provides access to a good range of wedding related products and has a fairly good affiliate program as well. So if you wish, join the Amazon Associates program, locate the best products relevant to your site within Amazon itself and you can post links on your own site as per below:

Amazon’s commission rates are not too bad and some prefer this avenue due to the sheer amount of traffic and trustworthiness that comes with a company site of this size.

How to find your own affiliate programs

As stated earlier, by outlining the sites above I have really just tried to give you a good cross section of the types of programs that are out there by listing the really good ones in each ‘category’. That does not mean that you cannot find affiliate programs that better suit (no pun intended) what it is that you are trying to do within this space – especially as I could never even begin to cover every wedding related requirement or sub niche in the one post. Luckily for us, there is a simple way to find these programs online.

All you need to do is enter “affiliate: niche type” into your search engine (substituting ‘niche type‘ for whatever product it is that you are choosing to sell).

Wedding Affiliate Program - affiliates

There are wedding related affiliate programs for everything else that we have listed at the top of this page as well – you will just need to have a look around until you find one or two that suit your site. Once you have completed your searches, you can look through and find programs that:

  • Relate to your niche/problems that you are solving.
  • Have quality products – your brand can be severely damaged if you promote poor quality products.
  • Have solid payment and customer service arrangement.
  • Pay decent commissions.
  • Have good testimonials covering commission payouts and quality of product.

In most cases, you will need to apply for the program before you are allowed to promote their products – don’t take this step lightly or you will be rejected. Affiliate programs will generally want to know:

  • Your website name.
  • Traffic levels.
  • Why you want to join – (so I can make money by selling your wedding dresses is unfortunately not generally a good enough answer).
  • How you plan to promote their products.

Conclusion

So… There are 10 of the best wedding affiliate programs to work with in 2020. I hope it has been helpful for you as you commence your own wedding based affiliate marketing business and as usual, please do not hesitate to comment below if you have any questions, need some advice or have any experiences to share. Oh, and especially comment if you have any experience with these, or any other programs as well.

Until next time

Have fun
