DENVER, June 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- VEBO is an experience-based wedding registry headquartered in Denver, Colorado. VEBO's website is http://www.vebolife.com. The full press kit is available at http://vebolife.com/press/. VEBO offers engaged couples the opportunity to register for experiences such as wine tasting, cooking classes, massages and skydiving. VEBO is announcing new functionality, which enables users to connect with other engaged couples. VEBO couples can see which experiences their friends have added to their wedding registry, read each other's experience reviews, or even plan experiences together.
Denver entrepreneur, Cody Sudmeier, is VEBO's CEO. Sudmeier believes that couples are interested in more options to stay connected with friends and family.
"Happiness is shared experiences with loved ones," said Sudmeier. "VEBO was founded on this concept. We have received feedback from our couples that they would like more options for staying connected with their friends and family. This new functionality encourages couples to connect with their friends and share experiences."
Jamie Regehr is VEBO's CIO. Jamie sees massive changes upcoming for the wedding industry.
"The wedding industry was pretty stagnant for decades. Until recently, friends and family continued to give china, linens, pots and pans, or cash as their wedding gifts," explained Regehr. "Modern couples prefer enjoying fun experiences. We live in the Instagram culture where people want to be able to share their moments, and to be inspired by the cool experiences that their friends enjoy. The VEBO platform now gives couples the opportunity to share experiences with others."
While the wedding industry is still dominated by traditional retailers, alternative registries are gaining in popularity. The majority of the alternative registries specialize in cash gifts. VEBO is the first wedding registry exclusively dedicated to experiential gifts.
