Our service is free and was created with the technology needs of today's nearlyweds in mind.
Our goal is to make it easier for you to collect and share wedding inspiration from everywhere. We aim to become the world's largest online collection of curated wedding stuff!

Users may also embed their latest shared items on their personal blog using a customized widget and create a pdf version of their stash for easy sharing.

What's the business model?
We are considering a number of different business models as there are quite a few options available. We're currently testing sponsored stash pages where select wedding brands create branded stashes or collections of items for the Stash community.
Our aim is to come out of beta and launch monetization this fall or early winter.
What's the funding status?
Hitch'd by Design is a bootstrapped start-up and we plan to grow our company organically until we reach a substantial user base.
