Wedding vendor reviews are important for three reasons: First, it’s the best way in the world to thank a good vendor. Second, it’s a good way to show your dissatisfaction in a manner that will legitimately impact their business and help other couples, making decisions about whom to hire. Third, it’s the best source of reliable, real client testimonials about the services various wedding vendors provide.
For brides and grooms researching vendors — reviews provide unique insight. They also introduce you to former clients whom you might want to contact directly for more detailed information if you’re considering whether to hire a particular vendor.
Good vendors worry about what the reviews will say, but bad vendors don’t register their company on ‘wedsites’ that will destroy them. Some vendors even put a ‘may not review’ clause in their contracts so that clients cannot express dissatisfaction in a public forum: This is a big red flag, and you should walk away from any vendor whose contract prohibits you from reviewing their services in any manner.
