Emily Newman launched Once Wed in March 2008 after she saw a need in the marketplace for an online listing service for second-hand wedding dresses following her own wedding. She later developed the company as an online wedding publication and resource to provide newly-engaged brides with inspiration and tools to plan their dream wedding. Her editorial eye and passion for helping brides plan inspired weddings has helped Once Wed rise above the ranks as one of the top wedding websites in the world. Her second company, If I Made, launched to help creatives build their craft and businesses through online learning by connecting them with their favorite experts in the industry.
Emily has been quoted as an entrepreneurial and wedding expert in Inc Magazine, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Boston Globe, Brides Magazine, Cosmopolitan Bride, and NBC Today. Once Wed was named Most Glamorous Home Based Business in 2010 by MSNBC.
