Announcing the WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Awards® 2016

We are pleased to announce the winners of our eighth annual awards program, the WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Awards® 2016!

The honorees represent the top five percent of wedding professionals in the WeddingWire local vendor community who demonstrate excellence in quality, service, responsiveness, and professionalism. This year’s list of winners is made up of the nation’s top local wedding professionals, covering over 20 different service categories including wedding venues, florists, wedding photographers, and more.

Our Couples’ Choice Awards winners are chosen solely based on the quality, quantity, consistency, and recency of the wedding reviews each professional received from consumers through the 2015 calendar year. Our program is meant to serve as an indicator of legitimacy and reliability for engaged couples when selecting their team of wedding professionals. According to Lynn, a WeddingWire user from Michigan:

“This award absolutely made a difference when I was picking vendors. If a vendor had that seal, I knew that enough engaged couples liked their services that I would, too. It helped me decide between two DJs that were otherwise equal.”

We are proud to feature these award-winning professionals who also understand the impact reviews have on their successful wedding businesses! Winners were notified via email on January 6, 2016. Recipients also received the official WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Awards 2016 badge within their WeddingWire account, along with access to a suite of marketing tools to showcase the award.

Congratulations again to all the WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Awards 2016 winners! We’re thrilled to celebrate such a high-caliber, committed group of professionals for the Couples’ Choice Awards’ eighth year.

“WeddingWire has been an invaluable tool in helping to grow my business. Engaged couples need to feel confident in their choice of vendors and the reviews on WeddingWire provide just that.

“We’re very honored and excited to have received WeddingWire’s Bride’s Choice Award for the 3
rd year in a row! We’ve found that engaged couples want to read reviews from past clients, especially because, a lot of a wedding planner’s offerings are intangible  – peace of mind, attention to detail, organization and stress reduction! By providing prospective clients with access to read what our previous clients have said about their experience working with us is HUGE!”Mark Kingsdorf, The Queen of Hearts Wedding Consultants, Philadelphia, PA
