Let the race for bragging rights begin!

The Easy Weddings awards season is fast approaching. And with weddings well and truly back, we want to be sure you qualify for our supplier awards in 2022.

5 star wedding supplier

Our 5-Star Supplier Awards are formal recognition of your dedication to exceptional customer service.

Wedding clients are a one-time transaction (we hope!) Reviews are a great way to achieve social proof and market how fabulous you are to future couples. One review is great, but 11 or more reviews triples enquiries.

Easy Weddings has one of the largest review systems in the country, with almost 280,000 verified reviews from real couples currently on the site. Every year, our 5-star supplier awards recognise the vendors in the wedding industry whose service is so exemplary their own customers have rated them highly on their Easy Weddings storefront over the past 12 months.

Not only will each qualifying business receive ultimate bragging rights as an official 2022 Easy Weddings 5-star supplier, you’ll also receive a digital badge to display on your Easy Weddings storefront, plus a downloadable certificate to print out and display at your shop or business.
