  • My promo code isn't working.

    If you have an issue with your promo code, double-check to make sure the code you’re entering is correct.

    Here are a few other things to keep in mind if your promo code isn’t working:

    • Only one promo code can be used per subscription at a time. Additional Promotional Codes may be applied at our sole discretion, but these will happen for specific reasons.
    • If your promo has expired, there is no way to re-activate it.
    • Promo codes can only be used once. If you cancel a reservation that used a promo code, the promotion is also no longer valid.
    • We only accept promotional codes issued by Your Big Day. If you received a promotional code from anyone else, it is not valid, unless in association with Your Big Day. (for example from a Wedding Show we were involved with).

    • Promotional codes can't be applied retroactively.

  • What if I forget to mark a date as available? What are my obligations?

    We have tried to make it clear that indicated availabilty is not a guarantee of actual availability. We understand that vendors use many vehicles to book wedding dates, and your calendar may not be always up to date.

    We do recommend you keep your calendar as up to date as possible, to ensure a positive user experience for your clients.

  • I can book more than one client in a day. How do I indicate if a date is partially available?

    This is a feature we are currently working on. Until we have this feature ready, if you are able to take any clients on a particular day, we recommend leaving the date available, and having a discussion with the client upon contact.

  • I have a problem with someone who booked my service.

    We do not hold any responsibility for a booking that was made by someone who found you through our service. We have no way of vetting individuals using our service.

    We provide a means for engaged couples to find your business, and a channel for you to market your service.

    You will still need to exercise a normal level of due diligence and proper discourse when booking a client, as you would for a client who found you through any other channel.

  • I am looking for a certain feature
