I absolutely love this time of year! Awards season is well and truly underway and we are so excited to be part of it! Last week we were absolutely thrilled to share with you that we had been nominated for a ‘Best DIY Wedding blog’ in the Wedding Blog Awards 2015 and now we are here to ask for your help again. The Cosmopolitan Blog Awards are back for another year and we would absolutely love to be nominated for a second year in the ‘Best for Bridal’ category!

I’ve got to be truthful and tell you that I always feel a little uncomfortable writing these posts, I have never been much of a natural at selling myself. I think it is probably the British in me, as I am terribly modest but I honestly think it does us good to make note of our achievements from time to time.

One of the questions you will almost always be asked in any situation where you are competing for something is ‘why do you deserve to win?’ Whether you are in a job interview, applying for an internship or scholarship or like us hoping to win an award, this is something you should always be prepared to answer, which is why I wanted to write this post today.

Since its launch in 2011, Bespoke Bride has changed dramatically! When we started out, we had no idea that our blog would turn into what it is today! We were hobby bloggers, trying to spread the word about our own independent small businesses and gain insight into the ‘industry’. We had no idea what it was to run a business, write a blog or be business partners and we learnt some very tough lessons along the way!
