What Creators Are Saying...
We recently published a blog post about the use case for Wedding Glossies and featured some of our favorite nuptial digital magazines. Brides-to-be, bridesmaids, wedding coordinators, photographers, caterers and many others in bridal industry stepped forward to share the stories of
how they used Glossi on their big day.
Here are just a few of the nice things we heard. (For more, read the full blog post.)
"Glossi is a platform to become your own magazine editor. The pages of a Glossi can be as simple or as complex as you'd like them to be, giving you the freedom to explore your creativity and produce something to share with others. For example, a home cook may use it to create mini cookbooks with step-by-step photos to share recipes with his/her family. A makeup artist may use it as a portfolio to show costume transformations and perhaps embed video to bring the final look to life. For Ruche, we use Glossi to simply tell a story through photography, and we hope that the final product becomes a source of inspiration."

"I love using Glossis as a way to tell a bigger story than a single inspiration board. I can create an entire publication out of one concept...or I can build around a theme. It's also a very polished way to share these ideas with a client - I can show them inspiration for an entire event, start to finish. One of my favorite things about Glossi is how easy it is to upload and put together all of my content, as well as how easy it is to share!"
- Ariana Batz,Hey Wedding Lady
"Glossi is a great invention and is an easy and unique way to create magazines. Anybody can use it and make a magazine on just about anything so offers the chance to really get creative. If you are planning a wedding it is a great way to create a magazine filled with ideas, you could dedicate a page to each area you have to plan for e.g. outfit, hair styles, jewellery and can go back and add more pages too."
- Zoe Robinson, personal Glossi user
"I think it's so intuitive anyone could master it... For our "Wedding Style, Wedding Etiquette" Glossi, we've utilized all of our assets: product photography, Dessa Lea Productions' Polyvore sets and original blog posts to maximize the content we have and we couldn't be happier with the results."
