Wading through the world of referrals and reviews to narrow down wedding vendors can seem like a game of pin the tail on the donkey. If you would like a higher probability of success than the close your eyes and point method, WeddingWire is here to help. The online marketplace connecting merchants with engaged couples and planners, presents its sixth annual Couples Choice Awards, highlighting the nation’s top local wedding vendors in more than 20 service categories.
Winners are determined based on customer ratings on factors such as quality of service, responsiveness, professionalism, value and flexibility. All vendors on the site are eligible for the recognition and winners represent the top five percent of wedding professionals in the WeddingWire Network.
“It’s great getting good reviews,” says Cathy Schloss of Echo Media Productions, of who has received the award for the past three years. “That’s what we aim for.” Schloss noted that they hear lots of positive feedback from customers who see their recognition on Facebook and their website. “Customers like to see that you are doing well.”
