We evaluate every wedding venue in _Here Comes The Guide._ (Yes, we actually turn down locations that don't satisfy our requirements.) When you see descriptive text about a location, it was written by us, not by some marketing department somewhere. We send a member of our staff or other professional writer to each location that we write about.
Ditto for the wedding services you'll find here: we do our own writing and we're super-choosy, but you should always ask lots of your own questions. Read more about how we decide who should be Certified By The Guide.
These folks pay to be on our site; however, we don't just accept payment from anyone. We're still picky, but there would be no website if they didn't pay us. Everyone goes through our vetting process first—and we do turn down locations and services that we don't think we can whole-heartedly recommend.
Some—but not all—of the products, services, and locations recommended in our blog have paid us. As always, we don't recommend anything we don't believe in.
We do our best to be accurate, but of course, things change—and we aren't always the first to know, so be sure you check each place and service thoroughly and ask lots of questions. Here Comes the Guide is not responsible for the contract you ultimately sign with them, or for how your event goes. That’s between you and each location or company. Our best advice is to be thorough, careful consumers and get every single thing in writing. This is what we tell our sisters and best friends, so this is what we’re telling you.
