Wow what a week! We had an absolutely brilliant weekend at the Wedding Fair, Bluewater. It was lovely to meet so many new Brides plus heaps of excited Bridesmaids, Mother of the Brides and many a happy Groom too! Over the three days we also got the chance to catch up with many of our Facebook and blog followers who also came to say hello.

We ran a competition over the weekend to win our services and have picked our lucky winner. We’re so looking forward to working with them to plan a fabulous wedding. Plus if you asked us for a quote and haven’t received it yet do drop us an email. Joanne is always telling me off about my terrible handwriting and it seems I’m not alone as we’re having trouble reading a few email addresses given to us. We haven’t forgotten you, we just can’t reach you, so please drop us a line!

All that leaves us to say is a huge thanks to the organisers of the fair especially Matt, Jenna and Laura who were absolutely fantastic and went all out to give happy couples a brilliant show.

Happy Planning!

Do you need a little bit of extra planning help? If the answer is yes then our Dolly Hours are the perfect way to pay as you plan. You simply buy our expertise by the hour and use the hours whenever you them, whatever you need them for. They are great for busy couples who want to do most of the planning themselves but just need a little bit of professional advice here and there.

Dolly Hours can be used for things like sourcing suppliers, obtaining quotes, creating styling boards and setting up planning schedules. It’s completely up to you – it’s like your very own wedding pick and mix!

Each Dolly Hour costs £35 but if you book your Dolly Hours before the end of March 2014 we’ll give you an extra hour FREE for every three hours you book. Simply quote “HelloFreeHour” when you drop us a line.

We think they make great presents for recently engaged couples! Just ask us for a gift card when booking.

Happy Planning!

Whoohoo today on the blog we have a brilliant giveaway all thanks to fabulous local hamper company, Spicers of Hythe. You can get your chops round a chocolate feast hamper worth £25 simply by popping over to our Facebook page and sharing this post.

There’s something really quite British about a hamper and we love their vintage charm with oodles of lovely delights inside that make them a perfect wedding thank you gift. From booze to biscuits and velvety chocolate treats – there’s a hamper to suit the whole bridal party from the in-laws to the Ushers and good old Mum and Dad.

Local firm Spicers of Hythe have over 85 years in the fine food industry, starting back in 1926 when Great grandfather Percy opened the first Spicers store. Today they still handpick the best produce sourced from local and international suppliers and wrap it all up in beautiful baskets. Check out their website to see the full range.

Good luck and if the winner needs someone to share all that chocolate with, The Wedding Dolls office is always open…….

We’re really excited as we’ll be doing our Wedding Worries Workshops for as many couples as we possibly can at the Wedding Fair, Bluewater this September (20th to 22nd September 2013).

If you’re planning a wedding chances are you’re feeling the pressure to make your day stand out from the crowd and bring all your plans together within budget. Not an easy task, so at the fair you’ll get the chance to chat with us about how to make planning your big day that little bit easier. From queries about choosing suppliers, making the most of your budget, finding your wedding style to bringing an individual personality to your day, we’ll do all we can to find an answer that works for you.

If you’re stressing about something, however big or small, you can have a free one-to-one session with us at our stand where we’ll chat through your plans with you and try to banish those wedding worries!

We love the Wedding Fair at Bluewater as it brings together so many suppliers in one place giving you the chance to find inspiration and ideas for everything wedding related. It’s all there from cars to cakes, dresses to drapery, favours to photographers, bridal accessories to bands, styling, catering, venues and much more.

The catwalk show which runs at different times during the day is fantastic for seeing different styles close up, as dresses never seem to look the same in the flesh as they do in the magazines. You can also try on most of the catwalk dresses plus Bridesmaids and Grooms can also get in on “wedding dress up” fun as there’s a whole range of wedding wear available.

We’ll also be running a special wedding competition and have discounts available for our full planning workshops so make sure you come over and say hello!

Happy Planning
