- Wedding: February 2013
I want to make future brides aware of some of the “corruption” to reviews on the wedding wire. I was brave enough to write a very honest review (3/5stars) for my photographer. It was not anonymous but I am sure he would have known it was from me anyways. The photographer CALLED me repeatedly BEGGING me to take down my review. He cited how important the Knot is to his buisness and how the only people that he gets reviews from are happy coustomers that he Asks to write reviews.He made it sound as if I was going to ruin his reputation for ever if I let the review remain on the website. (It is almost wedding season) He offered me all kinds of free services to change or remove my review.
Clearly people are being bullied and bribbed into changing (or removing) their reviews on this website. I am sure there are a lot of buisness out there with sterling reputations (I did use some people that were truly exceptional for other wedding services). But buyer beware of the wedding wire and other websites where Vendors are allowed to contact reviewers. I would suggest looking beyond the more popular sites or even speaking to past coustomers in person if you are looking for HONEST reviews.
