CHOOSING VENDORS

Choosing wedding vendors is like playing a real-life game of “Who Wants to Marry a Million Vendors.” Will you pick Vendor #1, who promises to make your bridal party look like a Pinterest dream but also comes with a side of  “Look at moi!” attitude? Or maybe Vendor #2?

It’s a daunting task, no doubt.  But fear not, dear brides! After nearly two decades in the bridal game I honestly feel like a seasoned wedding planner, and I’m here to help you navigate the treacherous waters of vendor selection.  Just remember, when in doubt, always go with the vendor who offers free samples.  Because let’s be real, who doesn’t love a free mini cupcake or a sip of champagne while making life-changing decisions?

So grab your checklist, strap on your heels, and get ready to embark on the vendor hunt of a lifetime.  And remember, at the end of the day, all that really matters is that you say “I do” to the love of your life… and the vendor who offers the best open bar package.  Cheers to that!

But seriously…..

Planning a wedding can be a whirlwind of decisions and details, especially when it comes to choosing the perfect vendors to bring your dream day to life.  In today’s fast-paced world, brides often rely on online research and booking to streamline the process.  However, when it comes to selecting the right vendors, I believe a quick phone call can make all the difference.

While emails can be efficient for initial inquiries, a quick chat over the phone allows for a more personal connection and the opportunity to address any concerns or questions in real-time.  This can save time and avoid the back-and-forth of lengthy email exchanges.  Plus, it’s a chance to get to know the person behind the service and build trust before making a decision.

As you navigate through the multitude of options and quotes, remember to consider factors beyond just pricing.  Experience, reviews, and portfolios are all important aspects to review. And don’t forget to think about the vendor’s style and personality – after all, you want someone who aligns with your vision and can bring it to life.

In the age of social media, take advantage of platforms like Instagram and Facebook to get a feel for the vendor’s work and personality. Watching Reels or checking out their feed can provide valuable insight into their creativity and dedication to their craft.

Ultimately, taking the time to carefully choose your wedding vendors can lead to a stress-free and successful celebration.  So why not pick up the phone, have a chat, and start building a relationship with those who will help make your special day unforgettable.

Cheers to a fun and informative wedding planning journey!

ITEMISED VS SET PACKAGES

After spending countless hours trying to decipher our previous pricing system, I finally threw in the veil and decided to switch to itemised packages.  No longer will brides be left wondering if their updo includes a side of fries or a sprinkle of glitter.  It’s like a choose-your-own-adventure book.  Trust me, your wedding budget will thank you.

With set packages you are normally charged for a trial, minimum numbers and a touch up kit.  I don’t believe in charging you for things you don’t need or want – after all, you’ve got enough to worry about organising the event!

We’ll work with you to make sure you get exactly what you need.  We understand that every bride is unique and has different preferences and budgets. Therefore, we provide the flexibility to create your own package according to those needs and requirements.  While we highly recommend trials, we understand that it may not be possible for some brides.

So, let’s chat and figure out the perfect package for you.  No minimum numbers, no unnecessary add-ons – just a bespoke service tailored to make you look and feel your best on your big day. And hey, if you want to throw in a touch up kit, we’ve got you covered.

Let’s make your wedding day as stress-free and fabulous as possible – because you deserve nothing less.  Let’s create a package that’s as unique as you are.  Let’s make some magic happen.

TIPS FOR THE DAY

Finally, the day you’ve been anxiously waiting for is here – it’s like Christmas morning, but with more tulle and less fruit pudd and pav. And let me tell you, this is going to be epic.  Think of it as a real-life fairy-tale, but with way better fashion choices.

So, here’s the deal: we always give the bride a friendly little call or text the day before the big day.  You know, just to make sure everything is still on track and to reassure her that we’ve got all our ducks in a row.

Because let’s face it, a bride with a peaceful mind is a bride who won’t turn into a Bridezilla! (Jokes) tongue-out 

Ah, the glamorous world of wedding day preparations, where champagne flows and makeup brushes dance.  We’ve got the day all planned out like a military operation, complete with a Run Sheet to make sure everything runs smoother than a silk veil.  Some brides are shocked by how early we start – but hey, beauty sleep is no joke!

Make sure you chow down on some breakfast and snacks beforehand – no one wants a grumpy, hangry bridal party on their hands.  Let us know if you’ve got any allergies, sensitivities, or specific skin or hair needs – we want everyone looking flawless and feeling fabulous.  And if there’s any last-minute additions to the bridal party, give us a heads up so we can adjust our glam schedule accordingly.

Clean hair and fresh faces are key – we want to work our magic on a fresh canvas. Get that hair washed the day before, and keep up that skincare routine on the big day. Oh, and no waxing or threading closer than five days before – we’re aiming for smooth not red and angry.

Don’t forget to download those hair and makeup inspo looks onto your phone – communication is key, folks. It helps us all get on the same glam page and create a cohesive look that will have everyone gasping in awe.  And a killer playlist with a speaker? That’s non-negotiable – we need those good vibes flowing as we work our hair & makeup magic.

So get ready to be pampered, preened, and prepped to perfection – we’ve got this, darlings. And if all else fails, there’s always Spotify’s wedding day playlist. Let’s get this glam party started!
