We are beyond excited to announce that we will be relaunching in early July with a super duper new site!!
Yep that’s right after 4 years we thought it was high time we updated Bespoke Bride, to become something a little more sleeker and easier to navigate as well adding some exciting new products to our own shop. This also means we will be taking a time out for the next 2 weeks to prepare for the launch. Although we wont stop blogging altogether, we will be diverting away from our usual blogging schedule and only posting 1-2 times a week.
After months of keeping this secret its so exciting to know we are only a few weeks from sharing our new look with you. This year has already been the best year for Bespoke Bride and we can’t express how happy we are to be able to say that!
Last year was full of highs but unfortunately ended on a real low, we were both totally burnt out and forced to seriously reassess the future of Bespoke Bride. Since then, we have been working hard behind the scenes to make Bespoke Bride into something even bigger with the addition of our own shop and have been totally overwhelmed at the amount of support it has already received. We are constantly bouncing new ideas back and forth to each other, talking about new products we can add to the shop and all that fun stuff! We both feel so lucky to be doing something we love and sharing it with people that truly appreciate it, is immensely gratifying.
I have a feeling, 2017 is going to get even better yet!
One last thing I wanted to share…
Deciding to take a break from blogging or working when your self employed is not easy, in fact it can be absolutely terrifying. However, when you work in a creative industry such as we do, the act of being ‘creative’ is often hindered when you have a million and one other things to do.
Creativity is a process and doesn’t just happen!
That is why we are never afraid of taking a step back when we need too. We have done this many times over the years and it has always proven to be extremely successful for mapping the future of our business. Bloggers often feel tied to strict schedules and become overwhelmed at the thought of needing to create something every day, sometimes even twice a day and although I think routine is good for a blog, I also think the odd time out is good too!
It is important to take a step back at times when you are feeling particularly uninspired or burnt out whether you just take an hour or two to go for a long walk or a week long holiday, you decide what is right for you. We feel very strongly in only delivering our best work and we simply can’t do that if we are juggling too many things that demand our time. Saying that, we will continue to post the odd DIY and real wedding over coming weeks, so for those of you who can’t possibly imagine a week without seeing a new blog from us, your in luck. You can also keep up with whats going on behind the scenes on our Instagram, if you would like to.
Ahhh you guys, we are just so excited to share the new site with you! Bring on July!! We can’t wait to hear what you think?!?!?!
