Thought For A Sunday: Sourcing Your Wedding Suppliers…

Afternoon chaps  and chapesses :)  It's going to be a quiet one on the blog this Sunday as quite frankly, I am working my backside off to prepare for my trip to New York next week, for International Bridal Market.  Currently, I'm wrapping up my beautiful letterpress postcards {thanks to Sugalily} with ribbon on the colours of the union jack.  Looks great – takes FOREVER! But so very worth it of course 🙂

Today's thought is actually one I had earlier this week and that I shared on Facebook and had quite a few emails in response too.  I therefore thought I'd reiterate it as my 'thought for today'.  I LOVE to support my local suppliers, but I find myself more and more often encouraging Brides to look further afield than their local area when it comes to researching for wedding suppliers. And thus, my 'Thought for a Sunday' today is as follows…

"When considering wedding suppliers such as Makeup Artists, Hair Stylists, Photographers and the like, think talent & ability, rather than region & locality.

The best in the business will travel and it's often worth paying a few extra pennies to cover their travel and accommodation expenses for one of the most important days of your life."
