Another way of finding your dream wedding suppliers is through social media, Pinterest and websites such as www.wed2b.co.uk/wedding-suppliers, https://www.confetti.co.uk/wedding-suppliers and https://www.hitched.co.uk/wedding-suppliers and wedding blogs such as https://www.rockmywedding.co.uk. Of course the other most effective way of researching for wedding suppliers is via personal recommendation. Have a think of family and friends whose weddings you have been to before! Did your best friend have the most delicious wedding cake ever?! Or, did your cousin have the best live music you have ever heard? Once you have found someone who you like the look of, I would advise that you either have a chat with them on the phone or meet in person, make sure they have a gallery of multiple weddings that they have attended or samples that they can show you, a contract and some incredible reviews! Never feel worried about asking questions to double check that they are the right supplier or product for you!
Additional ideas for your wedding day
Evening entertainment – garden games, magician, dance floor limbo
Confetti – I would recommend small dried brightly coloured petals and LOTS of it, in a basket and guests grab a handful!
Engraved ring box
Wedding thank you gifts
Table entertainment packs for children
I hope you enjoy this season of planning your wedding day together! Creating a celebration that truly reflects you, your love for one another and your future journey together, will be so so rewarding!
One little tip… If your family and friends want to help, let them (though perhaps just set a few guidelines first).
I can’t wait to see all your hard work come together and document every little detail that you have thought about, along with your loved ones enjoying all that you have planned!
