We love promoting the industry's elite wedding professionals with our exclusive A+ Certified Rating!

Why get certified? The marketplace is flooded with "awards" that often confuse your professional business with those of less stature. Compile that with a skyrocketing base of millennial couples whom rely heavily on remote planning, it's increasingly difficult for experienced wedding professionals to stand out from the less accomplished. As the only wedding business certification that's exclusive to the industry elite, you'll instantly capture the respect of couples and gain the distinction that your competitors will not.

What do you review? To maintain the exclusivity of our certification, we study nearly a dozen different business elements including your business history, wedding experience, passion for service, accuracy of representations and recent performance record using a proprietary grading scale to issue our certification decision.

How many years of wedding experience do I need? To earn your wedding certification, you'll need a minimum of 3 years professional experience. This ensures our program maintains its exclusivity to only experienced wedding professionals.

Ok, Let's do this!

Examples of what we evaluate

Professionalism

Practice professionally, Standard of skill competent for consistent success.

Why? Simple. Anything less is unacceptable for a once-in-a-lifetime wedding event.

How? We evaluate vendors business history, strength / validity of online reviews, years in business, and grade based the business’ likelihood to deliver a consistently professional service.

Trustworthiness

Honesty and reliability are the most crucial elements in a vendor / client relationship.

Why? Trusting your vendors to deliver the service you agreed upon and to arrive on time.

How? We rely heavily on recent couple testimonials, years in business and our interview responses to determine their likely trustworthiness to future couples.

Wedding Experience

A wedding day will move fast and having experienced wedding professionals will ensure it will flow as smooth as possible.

Why? Since there is limited formal training to service the wedding industry, an inexperienced vendor may be ill equipped to deal with a situation on the fly. Lack of experience increases the chance of a vendor problem by over 200%.

How? We utilize public data sources, direct interviews and testimonials to determine our grade in this category. We will also seek confirmation from peer vendors in the region, if necessary.

Responsiveness

Responding to clients in a reasonable amount of time.

Why? Wedding planning requires coordination of vendors and lack of response may impact other moving parts.

How? We examine responsiveness from couples reviews.
