TIME OUT!

Bespoke Bride Jessica Turley Emily Pettiford Colourful Balloons

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…

AN APOLOGY…

CELEBRATING DIVERSITY IN THE WEDDING INDUSTRY (1)

Last month we held our 3rd annual blog survey. We were super excited to receive your responses in the hopes of making Bespoke Bride an even more useful platform for those planning a wedding and were thrilled by the number of responses. This year was by far our most popular yet. We shared your feedback a few weeks later and discussed the ways in which this would be used to help us improve for the coming year. All in all we were extrememly pleased with how well we had done so far, you guys went out of your way to tell us how much you ‘loved’ our blog and ‘the variety’ of content we sharedsome of you likened reading our blog to ‘chatting with your best friend‘ and we even received a marriage proposal!

But there was something troubling us?

At the end of the survey we gave you the chance to to finish this sentence…

“I would like to see more real weddings or styled shoots that ….”

And here are a few of the responses?

OUR 2017 SURVEY RESULTS ARE IN!

Bespoke Bride Survey Results 2017

Hey guys! You might have seen a couple of weeks ago that we launched our 2017 survey! Hundreds of you took the time to answer our questions, and lots of you raised some really good points on how we could improve the blog and provided us with excellent suggestions for future features!

As always we thought it would be fun to breakdown the questions that we asked and share the results with you, but before we get started we wanted to offer a huge CONGRATULATIONS to Emily Russell from Middlesex, as you are the winner of a whole host of wedding goodies!! Which will be on their way to you very soon indeed!

So, Why Do We Release a Survey Every Year?

In short, we always want to make sure that we are creating content that you want to see! Our goal is to not only provide inspiration for your wedding but help you plan too. So hosting a survey is a no-brainer, it ensures that we remain on the right track and that we continue to provide useful information to our readers.

Whilst trying to decide on what questions we need to ask, we ensure that every answer we receive is going to be beneficial, i.e. they tell us what we are doing well so that we continue to provide more of that type of content, what we can improve on so we can make changes as required and suggestions for future features as we realise that times change and what brides and grooms might need help with now, might be different from those that were planning 2 or 3 years ago?

There are of course so many things that we want to know from our readers, so narrowing down the questions is always the hardest, but rest assured every question you answer serves a purpose.

So, here are a few of the questions we asked and your answers..
