Whether your mom is a fashionista or needs a little assistance in the wardrobe department, it’s a good idea to be there to help her shop for a dress. While shopping for an MOB dress can be a fun experience, it can be a bit stressful. We recommend approaching it with a supportive and positive attitude—you want Mom to feel amazing and confident, after all! Check out these tips for helping the mother-of-the-bride (or mother-of-the-groom!) shop for a dress.
If you’re like most engaged couples, you’ve probably experienced some etiquette issues during your wedding planning process. There are lots of people involved with putting together a wedding (of course, yourselves, but also family, wedding party members, guests, etc.) and a lot of emotions, too, which can be a recipe for drama. Fortunately, WeddingWire is here to help! In the “Dear WeddingWire” feature in our new WinterBook, we asked wedding planners and experts from around the country to answer some of the most-asked wedding etiquette questions. And if we didn’t answer one of your questions, feel free to reach out to us on Facebook or Twitter, and we’ll do our best to assist you.
Choosing the right wedding vendors is one of the most important parts of planning your big day – and reading reviews of pros near you is one of the best ways to build your vendor team. WeddingWire is thrilled to announce that we now have over two million reviews submitted by newlyweds and wedding professionals, which is the largest number of reviews on any wedding and event industry site.
What does this mean for you? Well, whether you’re looking for a wedding venue, caterer, photographer, or any other type of vendor, you’ll be able to read even more useful reviews of pros in your area, written by real couples, than anywhere else!
“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 of 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.”
Ready to start building your vendor team? Start searching for vendors near you (and reading reviews!) here.
And if you’re recently married, be sure to help other couples plan their weddings by writing your own vendor reviews on WeddingWire (bonus: you’ll be entered to win a $1,000 Amazon gift card with every review you write in December)!
