Couples can make savings just by using local wedding suppliers, and as more couples are committed to modern values as well as the latest trends, the best place to start sourcing things is the local high street. There has been much talk of the struggle that lots of high street shops are facing, but that does not mean that there aren’t some real gems to be found in your area. Smaller shops may have a more limited range, but they can order something for you and may know of other small businesses who can work with you to create a unique wedding.
Supporting local businesses is good for the local culture and economy and is kinder to the environment as it can reduce the number of ‘wedding miles’ covered when looking for items, saving you time to do other things. Companies that are local or smaller will have worked hard to establish themselves in the market and the locality and will want to give a good service so that you will be pleased to recommend them to others, which keeps everyone happy. Your wedding suppliers may well have worked together before on other events which can make the day run more smoothly for you, and if their shops or design studios are nearby it will be easier to pop in and discuss any changes or make decisions during the design process.
County Brides magazine covers the whole of the North West and has all of the information that you need gathered in one place. Information and contact details for lots of local companies, offers, competitions, hints & tips and our fabulous real life weddings so you can see how other couples set about creating their perfect day.
Pick up our magazine at one of the fayres that we organise, look out for the NEW launch copy at our 6th September event at The Etihad Stadium, home of Manchester City Football Club, or come along to our brand new two day event at the fantastic venue of St George’s Hall in Liverpool on 3rd and 4th October. Happy Wedding Planning !
