Whitney Wolfe’s Wedding Creates A Buzz

Bumble founder and CEO Whitney Wolfe has the wedding fashion industry abuzz after her weekend wedding to oil heir Michael Herd. The blushing bride walked down the aisle in a stunning Oscar de la Renta gown complete with a lace train and full-length veil. The couple was married at Villa Treville, an elegant retreat perched on a cliff along Italy’s Amalfi Coast.

The secluded venue was decorated with candles, thousands of roses and lemon accents to highlight the beautiful lemon trees encircling the property. Reception guests were treated to gourmet cuisine while they enjoyed sweeping views of the region’s coastal villages.

Whitney changed into a more comfortable, but still elegant pale silk dress for the reception. The bride and groom cut the first piece of an enormous strawberry drenched wedding cake and danced in the candlelit venue.

The newlyweds created a custom wedding hashtag to share photos from the unforgettable evening with family and friends who were not able to attend the nuptials. The tag, #HomeIsWhereTheHerdIs, is a play on the Texan groom’s last name. The couple met on Valentine’s Day in Aspen several years ago and has been inseparable ever since.

Whitney Wolfe’s jaw dropping Oscar de la Renta wedding dress and idyllic wedding venue aren’t the only reasons her marriage is eliciting so much attention. By creating Bumble, Whitney Wolfe has facilitated countless relationships. It’s only fair that someone responsible for so much happiness finds her own happily ever after.

Bumble currently has more than 18 million registered users and over a billion matches have resulted since its inception. Bumble is unique in that it allows women to make the first move while preventing the harassment that is, unfortunately, a common occurrence on other dating sites.

Whitney Wolfe founded Bumble with a mission to empower women in the dating world. Since the company’s launch in 2014, she has done so much more. In 2016 Wolfe launched Bumble BFF, an app similar to the original dating app, except it helps adults find friends with common interests.

Whitney, a graduate of Southern Methodist University, expanded Bumble’s applications once again in 2017 with the addition of Bumble Bizz. Bumble Bizz makes networking easier than ever before.
The Match Group recently tried to acquire Bumble in a 450 million deal, but Whitney Wolfe was clear: the Austin, Texas company is not for sale.

A Look At Dating App, Bumble

Bumble, is a new online dating application that is geared towards women. The way Bumble works is that women are the only ones who can initiate a conversation. This means that a man cannot start a conversation with a woman on the platform. He must wait until a woman starts a conversation with him.

In order for a woman to be able to start a conversation, both she and the man must have swiped each other. What swipe means is that both the man and the woman must have shown interest in one another. A woman can only message a man that she is interested in and that is interested back in her. If the man is not interested in her, then she will not be able to send him a message. The same applies to the man. If a man is interested in a woman, but she is not interested in him, then she will not start conversations with him and he must look for another woman on the app.

The person who created Bumble, is Whitney Wolfe. Mrs. Wolfe said she got the idea for Bumble after seeing the need for an online dating application that is centered on woman and that solves some of the issues affecting them on existing dating applications. Bumble attempts to address issues such as women being flooded with spam and inappropriate messages from men on dating applications. By only allowing women to begin a message, Bumble effectively solves this issue and lets women control who they receive messages from.

The founder of Bumble, Whitney Wolfe, was one of the co-founders of the popular dating applications known as Tinder. She also worked in the marketing department of Tinder as a vice president for a time. After leaving Tinder, Whitney Wolfe wanted to create her very own dating app. Being shy and afraid to initiate the first conversation with a man in real life, Whitney said that this awkwardness in dating and approaching the opposite sex also led her to creating the app now known as Bumble. As stated previously, it lets women be the initiators in conversations and a possible relationship. It also takes away the awkwardness of starting a conversation by letting two people like each other before they began talking.
