So you’ve got your wedding date inching closer and closer and you have a million decisions to make about dresses, Tuxes, food, floral arrangements, seating arrangements, reception venues, ceremony venues…the list goes on and on. It’s one of the most important days of your life (and probably the most stressful.) Do you really want to add the wedding professionals you hired to the list of things to worry about?
Not to fear, as you’re probably very well aware literally millions of people went before you and they can help. There are dozens of wedding review web sites out there and the best will give you valuable insight into what choices to make in regards to your Big Day. The Wedding Channel brought to you by The Knot, a wedding resource site, features in-depth reviews from past-brides on more than 100,000 vendors including everything from florists and DJs to photographers and venues.
The Wedding Wire not only offers reviews for thousands of vendors but also comprehensive wedding checklists and planning guides to make sure you don’t miss an important detail. Although its not normally associated with weddings, the Better Business Bureau can provide you with information about a vendor’s business practices and credibility.
While some unfiltered reviews can certainly be misleading, especially if a customer is disappointed with a service, a well-reviewed business can give you peace of mind when making your decision. Companies get positive reviews for a reason, they perform outstanding service. Let’s face it, there are a number of “Mom and Pop” wedding vendors that don’t have the necessary backup equipment, insurance and office help to ensure your wedding goes off without a hitch. All of these resources are easily available to make sure that you don’t get burned while you’re off getting cold feet.
