Congratulations if you've just got engaged over Christmas or the New Year period, or perhaps 2023 is your year to go from Miss to Mrs!
Either way there's no doubt that you've had several conversations with family and friends over Christmas about how your wedding plans are coming together with lots of different suggestions, do's and don'ts which can understandably leave your head in a bit of a spin!
To help you alleviate any stress or feelings of being overwhelmed we're going to give you a few insights and tips to bear in mind and when choosing your Wedding Day Suppliers so that you'll be able to sit back and relax when your wedding day arrives.
The Good - Wedding Planning Websites
If you've not yet visited Hitched.co.uk this is a fantastic website to help you plan your wedding, budget and keep everything on track.
Not only can you search their huge database of suppliers from Wedding venues to Hair Stylists and Makeup Artists (like us!) in Dorset there's lots of handy tools and checklists as well as other brides you can chat to on their forums too - plus there's a free app you can download as well.
The Bad - Very Low Prices
We all love a bargain in the January sale, however watch out for wedding suppliers who consistently offer flash sales, heavy discounts or their prices are much lower than other companies you've shortlisted. If their Black Friday offer runs right through to January and beyond they might not be as busy as they'd like you to think or they may have hidden extra costs not initially advertised.
Some wedding suppliers have honest reasons for lower pricing perhaps if they are new to the industry, use trainees or have particular wedding dates that they are looking to fill.
We offer lower prices for our Junior Hair Stylists and Makeup Artists and budget friendly pricing for mid week weddings or those in low season too. Take a look at our example pricing.
The Ugly - Sales Scarcity
Be wary of companies that post the same status update every week stating that they have 'limited availability' and that their diary for this year is almost full - unless they have listed their limited dates of course ;) then this saves everyone valuable time in administration with messages going back and forth.
If you're interested in finding out more about how we can help you on your wedding day then please do get in touch - we'd love to hear from you.
