The Knot Wedding Network, which is comprised of the top two wedding websites, TheKnot.com and WeddingChannel.com, today announces its 2014 winners of Best of Weddings, a by-brides-for-brides guide to the top wedding vendors in 1,750-plus cities across the US.
“For the past seven years, our reviews have been the most influential resource for our couples, providing them with unrivaled vendor recommendations directly from the tried-and-true experiences of their fellow brides,” said Rebecca Dolgin, editor in chief of The Knot Wedding Network. “We’re thrilled to crown the best of the best across the country by announcing our 2014 Best of Weddings.
