Wedding Vendor Selection Process

 

 

In 2018, all wedding vendors added in our top wedding venues, marriage celebrant and wedding photographer articles were selected as result of a combination of:

1. Editor’s Choice –¬†Our editor’s researched individual wedding vendors’ online profiles and selected the best of the best in each category

2. Brides’ Survey – We conducted a survey of our website users & our email database asking our brides to recommend wedding vendors in their region.

NO PAID Listings were added to the website in 2018 to ensure the quality of vendors listed in our articles!

 

In 2019, we are accepting paid listings but the vendors will still go through the selection process of our editorial team. Our team will research the vendors’ profiles to ensure the quality of the wedding suppliers featured in our article.

 

So, What are the steps involved to get your business listed in one of our article?

 

Steps #1:Wedding Vendors to Register Interest

Email the following details about your business to chris@weddingdiaries.com.au

  • Business Name
  • Website
  • Facebook Page Link (if any)
  • Instagram Page Link (if any)
  • Number of Past Weddings
  • Years in Business
  • Category e.g. Venue, Photographer or Celebrant
  • Region e.g .Melbourne

 

Step #2: Editorial Check (3 to 7 days)

Our editorial team will go through a process which will involve checking the wedding vendor’s online profile such as your website and your social media accounts.

 

Step #3: The Vendor will be notified of the result

Whether you’ve been selected for the 2019 top vendors article for your category/region or not, our team will make sure to notify you with the results of the process with 14 days.

 

Step #4: Payment – Pay for the Rank

Most of our articles are either top 10, top 20 or top 50 vendor articles (depending on how big the regions are).

Being selected in step 3 above will ensure your eligibility to be listed for the article you applied for. However, you can pay to be in the spot/rank you want to be listed in within the article. For e.g. the price to be featured in spot 1 of the article will be different from being mentioned in the spot 20 of the article.

The prices for the different spots/ranks by region and category will be emailed to you.

 

Why this process?

This selection process is to ensure that the vendor selection process for the articles is not influenced by anything other than our editors’ online research and hence maintaining the quality of the wedding vendors on our website.
