Do you use Yelp for vendor reviews?

I have been lurking for several days/weeks and I wonder if many of you use Yelp to get reviews on vendors?

I love getting vendor rec's here but ultimately think I would love to see a review site with them all combined into one since it seems the same people post over and over.
What review sites do you use, if any? Is Yelp the only one?

Thank you!

    Usually if you google a particular business, you should also get results that include reviews about them. Yelp is a big one, but so is like city search and google. Obviously, the larger the company, the more results you'll probably get. You could also search other wedding sites like Wedding Bee and Wedding Channel which may also include some reviews.

    I sort of knew some of the vendors I was going to hire but went to Yelp for more information and to check again.

    i also look up vendors on wedding wire but only after i've seen them on another site. weddingwire has way too many vendors listed to find one that way

    I am not using yelp much in my wedding research because they seem more about reviewing everyday uses like restaurants, bars, home repairs and anything else. I like wedding wire better, it's more specific to weddings in the area.

    I use Yelp a lot. I found our photographer on Yelp, most of the other vendors I found through the boards but I've usually double checked the reviews on Yelp before booking them. Looking at wedding photographers on Yelp is a really good way to get must take picture ideas too since it's easy to access and see photog's websites and style.

    Ditto what other people said. When researching vendors, I check Yelp before booking to see what others have said since there may be reviews from other events besides weddings. Wedding Wire is a good resource but can be overwhelming since there are soooooo many vendors on there!

    I have to agree. I think Yelp has the most reviews and is a great place to double check vendors and see what others say about them.
