Start with basic advertising in the wedding guides published in your area and local women's publications that have articles about weddings.  Make sure that you are listed correctly in online guides like Manta and CitySearch.  Make sure you are listed where the brides-to-be are looking.

For start, a good free source of visitors to your site is participating in forums that are related with weddings where you can put your signature on the posts with the url of your site or the link to some useful information regarding the subject of the post. This is always a good way to get people to visit our site.

Second, as this is a "niche" site, you can think starting a Google Adwords campain to promote your site. This is a cheap way of promoting your site and you can run it by yourself without paying others to do the job.

Hope this helps,

As far as I can tell, the more successful people do "all of the above".  Ones who "wait to be found" go out of business.  Showing up in person when you can is important also.  I have too many customers that want to be rock stars without leaving the house.  The more you can be "in the middle of things", the better off you are.  Leave cards, take cards, link and get linked.  Participate in events related to your business.  Be a part of the local 'wedding' network.  Photographers, dressmakers, music, wedding venues like country clubs.  Caterers and cake makers.
