The arduous task of wedding planning is the stuff of legends. So it should come as no surprise that the more than $100 billion events industry—which should be noted has also been the subject of more than a few Hollywood blockbusters—can get a little mucky for couples-to-be and their planners. This is where WeddingWire comes in. The 8-year-old tech company boasts the largest online marketplace where merchants and brides can come together for a more seamless planning experience. Seamless collaboration is also the motif of the company's real-life outpost in the D.C. area. "WeddingWire's offices were designed with collaboration in mind. The office itself is shaped like a honeycomb and is always buzzing with activity," said WeddingWire vp of people Jenny Harding. "The open floor plan and numerous themed conference and meeting spaces emphasize and encourage discussion and collaboration."
“One honor that the company is especially proud of is being named one of The Washington Post’s top places to work for a second year in a row,” said Harding.
WeddingWire provides a treadmill desk for employees who don’t want to sit all day.
Puns and Games
The company’s developers love the game room— so much that they inspired its name, “Dev and Buster’s.”
Test of Time
A space dedicated to technologies of the past, present and future—there’s a 3-D printer—has a home in the Innovation Lab, where employees test new products and services.
Moments of Zen
The Zen Room provides a calm space for personal phone calls, meditation and even napping.
