The Bridal Bar Blog is a sampling of what we find to be the best of the best in the bridal business. It’s a mix of event recaps that we participate in, real wedding samplings (many by our Bridal Bar members), product reviews, vendor reviews and highlights, industry information, our own adventures in LA, along with a few tips, trends, and must-hit sales.
The pre-screened and highly edited group of event professionals that make up The Bridal Bar membership are featured extensively on this blog, though certainly not exclusively. We make no secret that our talented and qualified vendor members pay a membership fee to be a part of our elite group, and our blog uses them often as resources for content. Those members are extensively screened and referenced checked and are invited to join our group based on impeccable reputations and to create a variety of style, price, and area of expertise within the group. In the essence of full disclosure (and because we are so proud of them), we want you to be aware of who are members are – so we’ll tell you most often with a footnote in the post if the content came from a member.
We absolutely encourage non-member companies and/or products to send us submissions too!! Lots of stories, weddings and events seen here frequently are by companies across the county, the country and the world. And we do our very best to adhere to the same service standards you would find in our membership so you know what we write about, you can trust. We do not take free product in exchange for promised blog write ups, though we do enjoy the occasional cake slice to make sure we like (but that’s free to brides-to-be as well)! We hope this clarifies any questions you may have about the transparency of our blog. We also hope our blog is informative, inspirational, and fun at the same time and we hope to have you back daily to see what we are up to.
