Updated on: December 11, 2023

As we recover from the peak summer wedding season, now is the time to ask your couples for reviews on Easy Weddings.

Here’s all you need to know about getting more reviews on Easy Weddings and becoming a 5-Star Supplier this year.

Did you know that 95% of consumers read online reviews before making a purchase? And 58% would pay more for a business with better reviews?  The recent study from Brand Rated (via Globe Newswire) backs up what we at Easy Weddings tell our wedding suppliers — customer reviews speak volumes!

Why reviews matter for wedding businesses

A wedding is a one-time purchase (we hope!),  so couples only have one shot at booking the suppliers who will make their dream wedding come to life. Before couples make that significant investment, the savvy ones turn to online reviews to check out their favourite suppliers. That’s why having a lot of solid reviews for your business will help motivate couples to enquire.

Reviews dramatically improve your storefront’s ability to generate enquiries:

  • 1 Review = 25% Increase in results
  • 11+ Reviews = 200% Increase
  • 40+ Reviews = 300% Increase

To encourage suppliers to achieve more reviews, Easy Weddings awards our top-reviewed wedding suppliers with 5-Star Supplier certificates each year. The recognition is a way for us to validate our top suppliers’ dedication to customer service and helping couples plan their perfect wedding.

5-Star Supplier Award

Are you eligible for our 5-Star Supplier awards this year?

If you’re a supplier with a listing on Easy Weddings, you could be eligible for our annual 5-Star Supplier Awards. Recipients receive a digital certificate to print out and display at their place of business, a digital Easy Weddings 5-Star Supplier badge to add to your storefront and website, plus a suite of digital assets to share on social media.

These digital bragging rights help our top-rated wedding vendors show couples that they rank among one of the industry’s best.

To qualify for your digital certificate and Easy Weddings 5-Star Supplier badge this year, you will need to:

  • Receive five or more reviews for the past financial year with an overall rating of 4.5 stars or higher (for suppliers online with on Easy Weddings for more than 12 months); or
  • Receive one or more reviews with an average rating of 4.5 or higher (newer suppliers online with Easy Weddings for less than 12 months).

If you have yet to achieve five 5-star reviews this financial year, there’s still plenty of time to reach out to your couples and ask them to leave a review on your Easy Weddings storefront. The deadline is June 30.

Remember: Asking for a review once will generally get a response from 1 in 5 couples, but asking twice will up your response rate to 1 in 3.
