For Superior Quality and Service

We’re happy to acknowledge Manhattan Bride’s “BEST OF 2024” bridal vendors for their superior service and quality. Based on thousands of interactions with vendors throughout the bridal industry over the 25 years since launching Manhattan Bride, we salute these select vendors for being:

Manhattan Bride Best of 2024 AwardOutstanding … in their knowledge of their field and in their professionalism.
Reputable … in that we have received only positive comments from their wedding couples.
Reliable … in addition to being on time and on budget, they follow up with care and insight.

Given our confidence in their abilities, we stand behind Manhattan Bride’s “Best of 2024” bridal vendors with our commitment: if you experience a legitimate problem that has not been handled, contact us prior to your wedding, making sure to allow enough time, and we will do our best to resolve the issue before your wedding day.

Manhattan Bride Spring/Summer 2024 25th Anniversary IssueIn 1979 we launched our independent publishing company, and from our first issues we set high standards for admitting only select advertisers to our pages. This year, we chose the “Best of 2024″ after working closely with them to create features, ads, and other services for you, which permitted us to measure them against the high performance standards you require.

We found them to be … Trustworthy and knowledgeable … Open to discussion about creative ideas … Willing to work through difficulties and solve problems … Willing and able to accommodate changes in plans, schedules, and other factors … Available for questions … and … Always professional in their approach.

We also turn to these “Best of 2024” wedding experts to help us select couples for our Real Weddings and to offer bridal planning advice in Manhattan Bride’s print and digital magazines and on our website. We invite you to consider these accomplished bridal vendors, backed by our commitment to you, as you create your special day.

Hall of Excellence
As we have done since 2012, we are honoring a select few of the area’s wedding venues and vendors as “The Best of 2024” and backing them with our special performance guarantee.

We know that other organizations give a “Hall of Fame” award, which implies popularity. (We get emails all the time imploring us to vote for vendors so they can get one of these awards.) But we wanted to do more — to look for and acknowledge “Excellence.”

Hall of Excellence Best of Award 2024Having worked with many of these vendors for years, we have watched certain ones whose pursuit of excellence was always outstanding, year in and year out. They are among the “Best of 2023” — but now, to acknowledge the many years of their all-around excellence that we’ve observed, we are proud to welcome them to our new “Hall of Excellence.”

We are inspired by their year-after-year commitment to the highest levels of service, integrity, and performance. They’ve earned their well-deserved stars seen below.
