HELP FOR BRIDES & GROOMS

Most of bridetobe.ca can be seen and used by anyone with or without an account. Some features like comment, reviews, favourites require you to be signed in with a bridetobe.ca account. Creating an account only takes about a minute.

Once signed in, find the Edit Account link under your profile menu in the top-right corner of the page. From this page you can edit your email address, password, and membership type.

The information on your profile page is visible to the public. This may include your name, profile photo, location, website link, Facebook link, and bio text, depending on how much information you choose to provide. Only your true name is required. All other information you submit to bridetobe.ca, including your email address and password, remain private and are never shared with anyone. If you send an email enquiry to any vendor in the directory, all information you send through that form – including your contact details – will be shared with the vendor you are enquiring to. For any other privacy concerns please see our Terms & Conditions page.

Our wedding directory includes hundreds of wedding vendors from all over The Greater Toronto Area. Searching the directory is easy – there is a search bar at the top of every directory page. Simply select the type of vendor you’re looking for, your preferred location, any optional keywords, and click Search. If you have trouble finding enough vendors try choosing a less specific location or keywords.

The easiest way to contact any vendor in the directory is to click the Email enquiry link in the directory listing’s contact details. This will bring up an email form where you can enter your message and then send directly to the vendor. You can also contact the vendor directly through any other means of contact provided on the listing (phone, mobile, website).

Brides, grooms, bridal party members, family, and wedding guests are encouraged to write reviews for all wedding vendors they have first-hand experience dealing with. We also allow reviews from other wedding vendors who attended or worked at the same wedding, so long as they have direct first-hand experience with the vendor being reviewed. All reviews must be submitted by the reviewer himself/herself, using his/her own bridetobe.ca account and his/her real name. Wedding vendors may not submit reviews on behalf of their clients, or copy & paste testimonials they’ve received from other sources.

Once signed in, find the directory listing page for the wedding vendor you want to review. Click the Submit a Review button or scroll to the bottom of the page to find the review form. When submitting a review please make sure to supply all necessary information (every field is required), be thorough and honest with your review, and don’t forget to choose a rating for each of the four rating criteria.

All reviews submitted to bridetobe.ca are moderated by our editors before they are published, to ensure they comply with our terms and policies. Most reviews are published within 24-48 hours. If your review is incomplete we may contact you for more information before we publish your review.

We encourage users to read over their reviews and ratings carefully before submitting them. If you later find an error in what you’ve written, or you’ve gained more experience with the vendor that changes your opinion of their service, you may contact us with an explanation of the situation and if required we can edit your review.

Each time a wedding vendor in our directory receives a review, they are rated on a scale of 1-5. The average rating and number of ratings for each directory listing helps determine their position in bridetobe.ca search results.
