Weddings are a big thing and having got married this year (which was great), I am hopeful that I will not have to organise one again.
A good friend of mine from school and his wife set up their own business in Wedding Accessories last year and here, I interview Tailored Occasions about their new business and their motivations.
I remember them telling me about this idea a while ago at another friends wedding and they have been busy during the wedding season and provide great quality for all their customers. They have many happy customers, so read below more about their passions, their motivations and their goals.
BTW - if you are planning for a wedding get in touch with them at email@example.com
Who inspired you to open up Tailored Occasions?
Coming from a business family background, and with my dad being a business man, the desire to start a business has always been there from a young age. I just had to first determine what I wanted to focus on.
What top advice would you give to someone planning their wedding?
My overall top tip would be to try and organise things as early as possible, and use help available to delegate tasks. Having things done in advance, will let you enjoy the run up to your big day, and appreciate what is about to come.
When did this idea become a reality for you?
It was through planning our wedding I became conscious of how difficult it was acquiring everything I required from one place, tailored to my needs and theme. I ended up spending a vast amount of time (and money!) sourcing all the materials, accessories and decorations needed to create everything from invitations and stationery, to ring cushions and guest books, constantly feeling anxious about the outcome.
Recognising that not every bride and groom have the time, patience or perhaps inclination to do this, together with my husband, the idea of Tailored Occasions was created.
Timing was key, and once we researched the market, and believed we could actually commit to this, we launched Tailored Occasions.
Where do you see the company in five years time?
Why do you think weddings are so important to people?
Weddings are the beginning of a new phase, the start of a marriage, a start of a new family, and the start of a lifelong commitment full of unconditional love and joy.
WHICH one wedding accessory is key to a successful day?
Jai thinks ALCOHOL lol :-) Rather than one specific accessory, I believe it is about happy guests. Knowing that your guests are having a great time gives you a great sense of relief and satisfaction
...as a foodie site, can I get your Top 5 restaurants please?
hmm top 5 - no particular order (yes i know i added a 6th) :)
