I don’t know an answer to your question, but am dying to hear what happened?   I love a good wedding horror story!   Can you share??

post on the relevant local board at weddingbee and perhaps on the knot?  you may also want to consider filing a complaint with the BBB.

the answer is "as many places as possible." Cause a lot of sites will probably take down your review and you want to get the word out as to many people as possible.   I’d post on here, on theknot.com, weddingwire (both the knot and weddingwire will probably take down your review but hopefully enough people will read it), on projectwedding, Elizabeth Anne Designs has a new vendor review page, Yelp, etc. 

 But I’d leave out any type of "stick it to them" language. You want your review to sound as unbiased and rational as possible so people will take it seriously.

Can you tell us the story now, but leave out the vendors name?

A little off topic, but do the Knot and WeddingWire have official policies about taking down bad reviews, or do they just do it quietly? I don’t understand why they would do that…

Def hit BBB (Better Business Bureau) this way when people look on there they will see it, I checked the BBB for all my vendors.

If you think it could help us here, you could tell us who to watch out for as well. I mean we’re a big community as well.

Why would the Knot and Wedding Wire take down bad reviews? I don’t know if they really do this but it’s as simple as marketing and money. Yes…on the surface they are there to help brides, but when it comes down to it they are a business like any other with a bottom line and if they can get by with turning a blind eye to a hand that feeds them I’m sure they might do just that. I think it’s a shame if they do this because there are so many good vendors out there that could use the advertising but can’t afford it while some with the big bucks and a bad rap get the spotlight – just a thought from someone who has a degree and career in marketing.

I posted a bad review of my wedding coordinator here, on WeddingWire, OneWed, Wedding Mapper, and I’ll post it anywhere else they’ll take it.  She was not good and I think other brides should know that too.  Funny – someone else had given her a bad review on OneWed too, wish it had been there when I was googling her before.

We filed a complaint on a vendor for BBB. The bad part is that they still owe us $1250, but BBB can’t do anything about it. The lawyer fees will be more than $1250. Any advice?
