Chevy Chase, MD—December 10, 2014—WeddingWire, the largest online vertical marketplace connecting engaged couples with event professionals, is thrilled to announce that newlyweds and professional peers have submitted over two million vendor reviews, the largest number of reviews on any wedding and event industry site. This is a significant milestone as the necessity of reviews continues to build across all industries, especially in the wedding and events industry. The 2,000,000 reviews represent experiences in working with wedding professionals in the United States and Canada, across more than 20 service categories.
“This is a major achievement for the entire WeddingWire community as it signals a major trend in the wedding space where engaged couples are not only relying on reviews to help make their critical wedding decisions, but are actively giving back to all engaged couples in the future,” said Timothy Chi, CEO, WeddingWire. “This incredible milestone of 2,000,000 vendor reviews helps engaged couples find their perfect wedding vendor team and strengthens the vendors’ online reputation and credibility, which ultimately helps them grow their business.”
To empower newly engaged couples in finding their vendors and for professionals to promote their services, WeddingWire will soon be naming this year’s winners of the annual WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Awards® . Couples’ Choice Awards ® winners, distinguished as the top 5% of local wedding professionals in more than 20 service categories based on their quality, service, responsiveness and professionalism , are determined specifically by engaged couple and newlywed reviews. Also, WeddingWire Rated™ program continuously recognizes wedding professionals across the country for their commitment to providing quality service with various badges, based on their number of reviews.
“Online reviews helped catapult my business when I first got started,” said Alison Harper of Alison Harper & Company in Baltimore, Maryland. “Even now, as I continue to grow, all of my potential clients look at our WeddingWire reviews before contacting us. They really trust reading a client’s first hand account of their experience. With 215 reviews on WeddingWire, a huge portion of my business is reliant on our online reputation.”
