Who are you?
I’m Alison Hargreaves from Guides for Brides – we’re a one-stop wedding planning directory and we’ve been helping brides plan their perfect day since 1995. We’ve got a whole host of information about wedding fairs, venues, planners and more. You can save money with our special offers and exclusive wedding deals and we also organise wedding fairs, mainly in the Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire area.
Which category are you sponsoring?
Guides for Brides is proud to be sponsoring the Best Wedding Venue category in the Wedding Ideas Awards 2014. We help to promote thousands of wedding venues on our website and our brand new search tool makes it easier than ever before to find the perfect place that matches your requirements.
What’s great about the Wedding Ideas Awards?
The Wedding Ideas Awards offer businesses, large or small, the chance to be recognised for the great work that they do within the wedding industry. It also gives real brides the chance to shout about the companies that have helped them plan their big day and give other real brides their recommendations.
What are your company’s plans for 2014?
We will be continuing the success of 2013 by exhibiting at more National Wedding Shows. Our main focus will be on promoting our brilliant Wedding Planner App to brides, as well as helping businesses promote themselves in the most effective way.
What are your top three wedding planning tips?
Use a wedding planner
Set some of your budget aside to pay for a professional wedding planner – whether that’s a person, an app or an online tool. Not only will it help you to keep everything in one place, but it will also help you stick to your budget.
Learn how to delegate
Delegate some of the planning tasks to reliable family members or bridesmaids. A wedding is probably the biggest event you will ever plan in your life, and many busy brides underestimate how long everything is going to take. Don’t feel like you have to do everything yourself – and don’t forget, your h2b is there to help, too!
Enjoy the time spent planning your wedding and don’t get stressed! Have some time out of the planning to remember the real reason you’re getting married.
