BETHESDA, Md., Jan. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- WeddingWire, the nation's leading wedding marketplace, is excited to notify the 2012 winners of this year's WeddingWire Bride's Choice Awards™. The prestigious annual awards program recognizes the best local wedding vendors from the WeddingWire Network who demonstrate excellence in quality, service, responsiveness and professionalism within the wedding industry.
While many industry awards are selected by the organization, the WeddingWire Bride's Choice Awards™ are awarded solely based on the reviews from over 1.2 million newlyweds. The awards are determined by a combination of four factors: overall rating, total number of reviews, review performance from 2011, and consistency of reviews from year to year. This year's recipients represent the top five percent of the WeddingWire local vendor community, comprised of over 200,000 wedding professionals throughout the United States and Canada. Professionals from across 20 service categories, from wedding venues to wedding photographers, are recognized based on their overall achievements throughout the previous year.
"WeddingWire is thrilled to honor the success of our top-rated wedding professionals within the WeddingWire Community," said Timothy Chi, CEO, WeddingWire. "Since the launch of The Bride's Choice Awards™ program four years ago, thousands of outstanding wedding professionals have been recognized by the bridal community for their supreme service and dedication to the wedding industry. It is with great pleasure that we congratulate the 2012 winners for their continued professionalism and commitment to enriching the wedding planning experience for engaged couples."
The Bride's Choice Awards™ 2012 winners were notified via email on January 9, 2012. Recipients will be given the official WeddingWire Bride's Choice Awards™ 2012 badge, along with access to a suite of marketing tools to showcase the award next week. A complete list of the winners will be available on the WeddingWire homepage in mid-January.
