    We aren’t allowed to parlay our blogging status into freebies and discounts. I think how it basically works is that if a vendor chooses to offer a discount AFTER you write about them as a thank-you for generating business, it’s okay to accept it, but it’s not cool to name-drop Weddingbee in order to score freebies. It would take away the “real brides talking about real experiences” aspect of the blogs if we were all throwing corporate-sponsored events like Star Jones, you know? Tongue out

    There are policies against this. And actually, if you are paid as a blogger to promote something, you are legally obligated to disclose this fact. Otherwise you can face fines.
