I Get By with a little help from my friends….
How can you tell the difference between the good, the bad and the ugly if you don’t know what you are looking for?
Planning a wedding can be a minefield- and for some can be an anxious, stressful time. With SO many wedding suppliers out there- who do you choose? and where the hell do you start!?
Well I’ll let you in on a secret
Great businesses don’t get to become that overnight, it takes years of perfecting talents, honing skills, and knowing the desires of their clients, alongside passion for what they do.
And yes- to be frank- you will get what you pay for.
But that doesn’t mean it isn’t affordable either.
I do not recommend anyone for profit,I also am not recommended by any one for profit or percentages either- and I am honored to call these people within this document friends.
People who I have built a relationship with over time, of working with and collaborating with them and seeing their consistent quality in what they deliver.
And in the Dorset Wedding Industry recommendations mean the world to us!
I hope that this list helps to take some stress out of finding quality people with quality skills for your big day.
So, what are you waiting for! Go check them out!
