What Is The Society?
The Celebration Society is more than just advertising. In a crowded industry saturated with lists of anyone and everyone, the network delivers exclusive exposure, credibility and recognition for our members and a stress-free party-planning experience for our readers.
The relationship with our reader goes beyond style-savvy ideas & pretty pictures to the very core of party planning: hiring a trustworthy creative team to seamlessly execute an upcoming occasion. Because of that, our sole focus is on elevating the vendor/client relationship. We don’t promote DIY or how to
negotiate with vendors… instead we bring light to the talented people and the amazing places that make weddings (and parties) wonderful everyday. We put a face with a business name and story behind a company slogan so brides, moms and party planners can hire with confidence.
It is our belief that you don’t have to do it yourself and you certainly don’t have to hire a stranger.
You can meet them here.
An invite only, carefully curated network of only the most talented, quality-centric venues and vendors in the special events industry. The businesses invited to join are chosen with careful consideration for their impeccable reputation, innate talent, commitment to their craft, keen sense of style, quality of work, professionalism and unmatched customer service. We consider members of the Celebration Society to be among the top 3% of professionals in the wedding and party industry.

“Beyond the magazine’s beautiful photos, educational editorial and real life experiences there is so much more to meet the eye. The Celebration Society has a dynamic way of reaching further and further into the wedding industry through, networking opportunities, social media, marketing, bridal shows, and print and online advertising. I have personally encountered great success through the publication by connecting with new individuals within the industry and running print ads. AFR receives inquiries on a regular basis through advertising in Occasions magazine, with that kind of ROI why would we do anything differently!!”

The Magazines not only attracts potential clients, but also outstanding vendors to network and partner with. I am so happy to give my business to the team at Occasions Media Group because they genuinely care about our success and show it through their excitement and enthusiasm!

“As the marketing director for a small catering company, it’s critical that I select our media strategically; it has to perform well by showing measurable results. The Celebration Society does this, providing the sales department with credible, qualified leads that turn in to long-term clients. Additionally, our relationship with the magazine goes far beyond the real estate in the publication. The events and non-traditional marketing opportunities they bring to the table are invaluable in showcasing our brand to the city of Atlanta—and beyond. This is a smart buy. Period.”
“The Celebration Society is the most comprehensive and beautiful ways to advertise in Atlanta today. It not only attracts the bridal and social clients, but appeals to the corporate meeting planners as well. The polished look and feel of the magazine combined with the ease and comprehensive web site create an amazing resource for all my potential clients as well as industry professionals and colleagues. Working with the magazine on-line and in print has been a wonderful experience that directly impacts the success of our business. Not only are the staff wonderful to work with but their professional knowledge has helped our brand grow. The print and on-line combination ensures we’ve saturated the market to meet the needs of my advertising and marketing strategies. Google analytics and the graphs available in the advertisers profile section on TheCelebrationSociety.com proves that our decision to invest more advertising dollars was undoubtedly the right thing to do.”
“I absolutely LOVE The Celebration Society! We get a lot of wedding business from the magazine. And, I really think the two page ad is better as you are in the front of everyone else.”
“I absolutely love working with The Celebration Society. I’ve been an advertiser with them for about 3 years, first at The Buckhead Club and now The Commerce Club. They have fantastic networking events and their venue guide is the best of all of our magazine options. They’re the only magazine we’re currently paying to advertise with.” – Cathy Phillips, The Commerce Club
