A victim of Wedding Wire was the most-read eWedNewz story this week. Pat Kelly, a gown retailer in Oklahoma, was tossed from the website after collaborating with them about an appointment idea. The reason given by Wedding Wire said there is a conflict of interest.
Because of the incident, advocate, Samantha Goldberg, issued a statement against Wedding Wire and related people to the website. Goldberg continues to fight for the rights of vendors and brides who are getting hurt by inaccurate information that appears on the review site.
An addition to the story from people communicating with Wedding Wire say they’re getting responses like,
“wedding wire is an innovative community and a market place and that they are not a service and therefore cannot be held responsible for the actions of others.”
The Wedding Wire story spills out beyond the wedding industry, as vendors take on other review formats, including YELP. A Philadelphia DJ company, Cutting Edge DJs, called out YELP after trying to enhance their listing.
eWedNewz watches new websites like Bitchless Bride anonymously fighting consumers that are never satisfied, no matter ho hard vendors try. This week she featured another unidentified blogger, the Tuxedo Mask, who ripped abusive consumers not respecting tuxedo rentals.
