Terms, Conditions, Disclaimers, Refunds and
Every month we will promote you to all of our wedding planners & coordinators, as well as offer to submit your company to up to 20 new upcoming weddings from various locations throughout the USA. We will do our very best to offer at least one wedding in your home state.
These weddings are with newly engaged couples that are actively seeking wedding vendors.
We will contact these newly engaged couples so that we can showcase our vendors (you) to them in an effort to have them consider your company for their upcoming wedding. We can guarantee exposure of your company to these couples (not bookings).
Make sure to email firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can send you the form each month to make your choices (based on your interest/availability). This will assist us if the couple decides to reach out to us about your company and your availability (they may even contact you directly).
This is in addition to our main form of promoting your company. Read below to learn more:
THE BRIDE WORLDWIDE will promote your company to a target market of Wedding & Event Planners and their brides & other clients, as well as to our vendor members and the internet wedding community. We will also promote your company to internet traffic via any social media platforms/other platforms that we currently have or may have in the future(additional fees may apply). These brides/clients are all in the midst of planning their upcoming weddings or events. We will promote your company with the promotional tools that we have created for you on our website(s)/platform(s) and on our social media platforms. We will use these promotional tools in an effort to showcase your work. We will promote your company to your specific regional area and we will promote your company to your entire state and even beyond. There is no additional fee for the extended promotional coverage. It is a courtesy service in an effort to give you complete promotional coverage. It is your final decision about how far you prefer to travel for your work and how you wish to charge your client for any travel related costs. If you prefer to have any additional Promotional Materials created for another state(s)/country then your main state/country, then additional fees may apply. Please inquire about this possibility with your Promotional Stylist. *We are obligated to offer privacy to the wedding and event planners. Therefore we may be unable to release any personal/professional data about these individuals/businesses that we reach out to within the wedding and event industry. In an effort to continuously improve our service to you, THE BRIDE WORLDWIDE reserves the rights to change, alter, add or delete various aspects of the promotional program. Our promise is to promote your company in a professional manner to wedding and event planners, brides and all others. This is a completely complimentary resource for wedding and event planners and their brides and other clients. In the end, it is the wedding planners and the brides/other clients final decision to refer/book your services. We cannot guarantee referrals/bookings but we can guarantee exposure that may lead to referrals/bookings. Essentially, this is a form of paid advertising that guarantees exposure but cannot guarantee referrals/bookings. Results will vary for each and every vendor. The Bride Worldwide refuses to give or receive: commissions, kickbacks, incentives or payoffs of any kind, to or from planners, vendors and/or brides, or others; in order for you to potentially receive bookings. Though we will introduce wedding and event planners that are in our database to the website(s)/social media platforms that feature your company, and offer them complimentary resource tools, and communicate with planners if/when they call upon us, we cannot guarantee that these planners will actually use these resources where your promotional materials are offered and on display. We will however make all promotional resources available to planners. We will always be available to any and all planners that wish to communicate with us. Acceptance means that you are in agreement that we have rights to share your images and content that you have supplied to us for the promotional materials that we have created for your company and that you are in agreement to allow us to expose your company to various outlets ONLY of The Bride Worldwide, that we may or may not offer at some point in the future. For example: Additional social media platforms/internet web traffic/bridal shows/educational items for brides/others in the wedding industry. If we create any educational items/platforms for brides, that we may or may not charge a fee for, please be aware that there would be no compensation offered to you. (Ex. You share wedding planning advice to brides on our platform and we include your advice in an E-Book that we may/may not charge brides for). However, this would result in additional complimentary promotion for your company. This would be an extension of the direct promotion of your company that we already have in place with planners and via our social media outlets. Though it is not typical, we also reserve the right to cancel your membership and will refund to you any pro-rated fees that you may have paid in advance for your promotion. As mentioned above, we reserve the right to change, alter, add, or to delete all aspects of our promotional program at any time without announcement or approval to any of our vendors, planners or others. An example of this is the possibility that we may need to increase the number of vendors that we promote in their specific category and region due to demand (Ex. you may have joined at a time when we were only offering two memberships per category and region. As time passes and demand grows (Ex. Wedding Planners inform us that they need a couple of more choices as the current vendor choices are already booked up) we may need to increase the number of vendors that we promote in your category and region). You also agree to be effectively promoted to brides, planners and others and you are stating that you have the permission from all of your third-party clients and others to release all of their/your materials as described below and will now be giving permission to THE BRIDE WORLDWIDE to use your/their business images, wedding planning advice or other content that you offer to us, your website link(s), your social media links and any other business contact details, to be used within your promotional materials without further permission, free and clear. Please note that we are 100% aware that this content is YOURS and yours alone and that we do not own any of it. Although you are giving us permission to share it now on our sites, we will immediately remove any content from our site(s) that belong to you if you no longer want it shared in the future. What has already been shared obviously cannot be undone, for example: Any wedding planning advice &/or images that you may have shared that became part of an E-Book that is already in the possession of a bride/other that we are unable to retrieve/another example is any social media posts that you previously offered to us that helped promote your company. We will continuously strive to promote your company in the highest manner possible. You agree that all of these aforementioned items may legally be added to all promotional materials that we create for your company and then released publicly on THE BRIDE WORLDWIDE website(s) and social media sites, as well as all other company related promotional tools that THE BRIDE WORLDWIDE’s sole purpose of use is to promote your company effectively so that brides, planners and others can find your company via the internet or any other promotional avenues in which we include your company. These brides/others will then have the opportunity to get in contact with you directly and potentially book your company for their upcoming wedding or event. I, (YOU/YOUR COMPANY) give The Bride Worldwide permission to use the content that is offered by you and fully release THE BRIDE WORLDWIDE from any legal liability in relation to using all aforementioned items in building all promotional materials that have been created and released to the public at large. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us. It is our intention to promote your company in the most effective way possible and we will do all that we can to get your company the attention that it deserves.
SPECIFIC INFORMATION ABOUT OUR REFUND POLICY/SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS:
Refund Policy – We are aware that you have already read the Refund Policy when you filled out the Preferred Vendor form because you had checked the ‘I agree” box and submitted your form to us. However please read this entire page once again so that there is no confusion or misunderstanding when it comes to the submission details and other refund requirements.
We are confident that you’ll get the results you’re expecting from our products and services. To show you just how confident we are, we’re giving you a full 365 Day Money Back Guarantee.
Please read the Terms and Conditions below to fully understand what is required to qualify for our 100% money back guarantee.
Here’s what you need to do:
Step 1. Once you become a member of The Bride Worldwide Preferred Vendors Club,
you can test us out for the required 365 full days. See how our program works for you,
pay attention to both short-term and long-term results…
Step 2. If you’re not fully satisfied with the effects during the 365-day trial period and you have provided all of the submissions required then simply contact us at email@example.com to get your full refund.
Step 3. Our team will make sure you get your money back without any hassle or questions asked.
Terms and Conditions of our Refund Policy:
Once you become a member you will have access to the tools needed to submit your images, planning advice and more quickly and easily in the membership area.
Please follow the required submissions schedule below so that you qualify for the refund.
Our refund policy is more generous than you can imagine but it is not a given…you do have to do a little work. A refund will only be granted if you have met all of the requirements listed in this refund policy. Adhering to the submission schedule (what is required and when it is required) will assist us in promoting your company effectively. That is why these submissions are crucial and it is why they are required. We are not trying to make this complicated for you and we have kept it as simple as possible. Our end goal is your success.
We need your participation so that we can make this a brilliantly successful experience for your company. However, if you do not have success, even after submitting everything that we required, then you fully deserve your refund. On the flip side, I think that you would agree that it would not be fair to give you a refund if you did not give us the tools that we needed from you to help make your business stand out and get noticed. We have created a very fair refund policy for all parties. That being said, this is what we require and when we require it:
Every month you will need to submit one *original post per the following two categories (two posts per month):
*Original post means that it is created from scratch just for The Bride Worldwide. It cannot be a copied and pasted post from your own blog or another persons blog. It must be an original post that has not been posted in any other location.
~Wedding planning advice for our blog/social media (with one image and at least a 250 word count, which is approx. 10 sentences. The more text the better).
~A real wedding (current or past AND you may also share more than one post about the same wedding) that you were working at in some capacity (with one post image and a link within the post to more images plus at least a 250 word count, which is approx. 10 sentences).
To recap: To qualify for the refund we just ask that you provide us with the required items:
1) You must create your Directory Listing within the first 30 days of joining
2) You must adhere to the monthly submissions requirements so that we have the tools that we need to provide the most effective promotion of your company.
3) You must contact Support@thebrideworldwide.com 3x during your year long membership to share your concerns
4) You must stay a member for a full year
Let’s go over the details of the refund once again so it is clear to you:
You must submit one wedding planning advice post and one real wedding post per month. It should ONLY take between 15-30 minutes of your time per month. This is very reasonable and it gives us the tools that we need to help you find success. Please note that you must also be a member for the full year in order to qualify for the 100% money back guarantee. A money back guarantee will not be offered to any member that has not fulfilled the full year of membership. You must also give us a chance to make things better for you if you are not happy with the current state of your promotion. Again, our end goal is your success and we will do all that we can to achieve that for you. In that spirit, you are required to email us at least three separate times during the year to let us know that you are not currently satisfied. This will allow us the chance to improve the situation for you. You must send your emails to this email address only: firstname.lastname@example.org. DO NOT send your emails to Hello@thebrideworldwide.com or Tamara@thebrideworldwide.com, etc. as it will disqualify you for a refund. You must only send these emails to Support@thebrideworldwide.com. If we do not get at least three emails from you at any point during your year long membership then you forfeit the right to a refund of any kind. If you did email us three times, gave us all of your submissions and we still could not improve the situation for you then you will get the full refund – no questions asked and there is nothing more that you need to submit or prove to qualify for the refund. You will be granted a full refund that will be paid back to you immediately. Our entire goal is to make this a successful experience for you and we will focus all of our efforts on that. We feel confident that your request for a refund will not be requested because we are planning to impress you. However, if you feel that we failed to reach this goal and you have done your part, then a refund will be available to you – no questions asked. If you chose the Pay As You Go option there will be no refund offered to you. You may just cancel at anytime.
ABOUT OUR AUTOMATIC PAYMENT POLICY:
If you have automatic payments set up and you wish to continue your membership then you do not need to do anything. If you decide to cancel your membership then you must cancel prior to your next automatic payment. If you fail to do so we will honor you with a full refund as long as you contact us and officially cancel within 3 days after the automatic payment. Anything after the 3 days will not qualify for a refund because it will be assumed that you would like to continue your membership. If you miss the deadline and really do not want to continue your membership then we can issue you a credit only to be used towards any of our other products, services and training programs either at The Bride Worldwide or Proud To Present Enterprises. Please contact Support@thebrideworldwide.com in advance of your membership renewal to avoid potential issues.
