Planning a Wedding with The Bespoke Bride Guide

1 comment:

Hey there, tell us a little about yourself!
We are Laura and Sophie, the Harris twins! We are the founders of The Bespoke Bride Guide, your complete online directory of wedding services in Plymouth and the surrounding area. We offer couples a directory of unique handpicked suppliers in one place, enabling them to choose reputable and trusted suppliers for their big day. 

What inspired you to start The Bespoke Bride Guide?
Anyone who has ever started planning a wedding knows that it usually entails endless hours spent trawling the internet and flicking through countless expensive wedding magazines. This was certainly our experience when planning our own weddings! 
As twin sisters getting married in consecutive years, we were both keen to have weddings that were as individual and unique as we were. This required much research, seeking out numerous suppliers who could offer something out of the ordinary; everything from cakes to cars, dresses to bars! We realised that having an online resource available which contained information about amazing local suppliers who could offer a personalised, high quality service, would make life much easier for a bride-to-be looking to make her wedding different from the next! And so, the idea for the Bespoke Bride Guide was born.

Are they any particular types of wedding suppliers that you would like to feature but don’t currently?
We love to find hidden gems, suppliers who are local businesses who offer a high quality personalised service to our couples. We are always looking for unique suppliers, in particular transport and beauty services, which seem to be elusive!

What sort of things happen in your “typical” day?
We both have ‘other’ jobs, so the BBG is fitted in around those- lots of late evenings and working around our daughters- usually in chaos! We love working on the website, writing articles, engaging with suppliers and couples via our social media and meeting up with suppliers (normally with tea, cake or cocktails!) We have held a launch event and a networking event so far and we are planning our next event as we speak! We love to do things differently to other wedding events and we’ve received great feedback so far!

What advice would you offer to couples planning their wedding?
Use the Bespoke Bride Guide to ease your pain! Planning a wedding can be difficult; managing people and budgets alongside wants, needs and expectations is an emotional and time consuming process. By providing pretty much everything you need for your big day in one place, the ability to select your favourites and e mail them to yourself saves a lot of the leg work involved. We think selecting your date and venue is the first task to tick off your list and the rest follows on - being organised and delegating jobs is also crucial - you can’t physically do everything yourself. Check out our inspirational blog posts and articles for lots of tips and advice from the experts. We also love to feature all different kinds of weddings- after all your big day is as unique as you are!
