You Have A Voice.

Best Way to Say Thank You.
If your vendors were prompt and professional and everything was fabulous, what better way to thank them than by giving them an awesome review? A thank-you card is always appropriate but screaming from the rooftops (aka a public online review forum like the Happily Connected review system) is always appreciated.
Help Other Couples.
Did you use reviews to weed through the many vendors who offer wedding services? If so, then you know how important they are. Engaged couples everywhere rely heavily on reviews, so both positive and negative comments can be helpful. Before posting a negative review, we suggest reaching out to the vendor and explaining why you felt their service was less than satisfactory. By doing this, it gives the vendor the opportunity to explain the situation and hopefully come to an agreement with you about the situation. If you still feel it warrants putting a negative review out on social media, be specific about what the problem was and leave out the drama. If the vendor made amends, be sure to add that as well. Constructive feedback and useful advice help the vendor improve their service and helps potential customers.
Support Local Businesses.
A good online review is extremely valuable to any vendor. It helps future clients find vendors they can trust and want to work with.
Remember show your love to your vendors and help couples find the perfect fit!
