Wedding Planning! We get so many lovely couples through our doors, and online, deciding which of our wedding stationery designs will complement and enhance their wedding plans and themes. They all love to tell us what their wedding plans are, the issues are having and asking if we know and can recommended other wedding suppliers. We are obviously more than happy to help. We love learning about all those wonderful businesses out there creating beautiful products all with one aim: to ensure couples have the wedding of their dreams!
So we thought we’d help with a few personal recommendations of suppliers from some of the different types of businesses you’ll need when planning a wedding. Obviously these are just a few of the many more our that couples have recommended to us and we have recommended to them.
Wedding Planning made easy
Searching suppliers via the internet is so easy compared to wedding planning 10 or more years ago. Now you can find so many different companies locally and nationally to choose from. They all give you so much information and fantastic images to ensure you make a considered decision. Almost too many suppliers sometimes, but that has created a competitive set of suppliers and consequently, incredible creativity. Just a quick search on Pinterest and you’re quickly faced with literally hundreds of options. Deciding between them is the hard part, but you’re probably already following amazing suppliers on Instagram and have long Pinterest boards!
A good place to start are wedding blogs: there are so many out there, some national and some local. It’s a case of searching out the ones that are most relevant to you and the style and theme of your wedding. So our first recommendation is a wedding blog and then from there we list some wonderful wedding suppliers across dresses, hair, venues etc.
This is a great blog-based website helping you plan your very own perfect day. It highlights real weddings with fabulous imagery and also has a great deal of advice and suppliers for all elements of wedding and really does help you create your own individual style for your very own big day.

There are a number of brilliant wedding planners who will be more than happy to help you plan your perfect day. Two that have stood out for us recently are:

Pearl and Pear is a wonderful source of inspiration and guidance. They launched earlier this year and their site is a curated list of exceptionally creative suppliers to help you create an unforgettable day!
Again, we know this is such a personal choice and your caterer will probably be able to recommend cake suppliers, or offer to make it themselves. We can, however, recommend this amazing baker who is local to us in South West London:
Emma Bayfield Cakes: Emma’s creativity knows no bounds and the cakes taste amazing too!

We haven’t forgotten that your wedding stationery is pretty key to your wedding day! Not only will you need to invite your guests, but on the day itself, there are many items of stationery required to ensure the day runs smoothly. Items like an Order of Service, a table plan, table names, placements and perhaps menus too. We have many designs on our website to inspire you.
