@Bebealways: Thank you so much for the heads up! We poked around and indeed found that is not a trusted resource for anything. 

We do not sell all our advertising directly. Some of it we get from advertising networks, and this was one of those instances where the ad was served from a network. We immediately asked for to be removed from serving on Weddingbee; you shouldn’t see it pop up again.

We get similar complaints around election time, where members would see political ads from politicians they don’t trust. We make our best attempt to block all these ads, however, unfortunately it’s a reactive block, not a proactive block. Our advertising network doesn’t give us a “heads up” as to what ads they intend to serve on any given day, BUT, we have the ability to contact them and tell them to stop serving particular ads that we don’t like on our site once we see them.

With direct advertising we only work with vendors and companies that we trust and would actually use. If at any time you see questionable ads on the site please do not hesitate to contact me directly via PM, or let us know in support!

@Bebealways:  Ads on sites like these often come from cookie tracking ad providers. So, if you had been googling for a knock off dress maker, whoeven paid them to put up an ad related to that is what pops up. I recommend using Firefox and AdBlocker if you don’t want to deal with that in the future! Lots of websites do that – not just this one.
