Have you had success with finding a vendor through an online vendor guide? If so, please share links!
Has anyone used http://wedbrilliant.com/? You can find services by location. Very cool! But I don’t really understand the bids thing; why not just contact the vendor directly? The contact info is already listed! 😀

SurelyAsTheSunWillRise: A lot of my vendors came through referrals, BUT I had a really hard time locating a vintage car service and was finally able locate not 1, but 2 using http://www.mywedding.com. It’s actually the site I used to build our wedding website and just happened to notice that they have a vendor section one day – very useful! I’ve looked into videographers using that site as well.

There are so many options, it’s hard to know what to trust! I have a friend who got their photographer through Groupon and they had a horrible experience. I’m mostly relying on reviews and word of mouth, while still keeping an eye out at all my options.
