Community Standards


The purpose of SoCalWedding.Directory (”SCAWD”) Community (‘Community’) Standards are to make the Community a safe and enriching place for all users. We encourage our members to be welcoming to all members, offer honest and supportive advice, and share ideas to improve the wedding planning process. Members of the Community conduct themselves with a high degree of integrity, decency, and respect in order to ensure that all Community voices can be heard and everyone can find the support and information they need.

Use of the Community is subject to these Community Standards, SCAWD Terms of Use, and SCAWD Privacy Policy, which SCAWD reserves the right to modify at any time. Please direct any questions or feedback to

It is expected that everyone who chooses to participate in SCAWD Community will hold themselves and each other to these Standards and ideals in order to foster a helpful, fun, and supportive Community for all.
