Seriously… it really is…
This little baby of ours has taken longer than the usual 9 months to form, but we’ve finally made it and are SO EXCITED to be here with you!
We wanted to officially welcome you to our Wedding Day Whispers family and to our inspiration blog : )
We know most blogs tend launch straight into content, but we thought it may be nice to introduce ourselves a little more personally. If you’re interested, please read on. If not, we won’t be offended!
We’re Leanne and Nicko, the two lovers behind Wedding Day Whispers – hello!
The reason why we’re here is because two years ago Nicko finally decided to drop to one knee and propose (yay!). We broke out the bottles of bubbly and partied with family and friends. Then, the wedding planning kicked in… and it was through this experience that we realised just how difficult, unclear and time consuming the whole wedding process and lead up was…
We didn’t know where to start… We didn’t know which suppliers to use… We had no idea who was offering the best value… And to top it off, we couldn’t find honest and representative reviews from past couples. There was always something weird about those which we came across – all businesses seemed to be getting 5/5 from every single couple, every single time… Too good to be true?
In the end we just used the suppliers our friend had recommended because it was easier… and can you guess what happened? We made a mistake. A big one. We chose a supplier that didn’t deliver to what we expected… And the reason is that we only heard the point of view from one person, and didn’t explore who else better aligned to our style and vision. And now that we look back, there were SO many more options for us, but we just weren’t aware of them..! Eeek!
So to help other couples make the RIGHT decisions, we decided to create a planning hub which was all about CONVENIENCE and TRANSPARENCY. A place where couples can go and TRUST. A place that is purely here to serve THEM, where they can learn about the range of services available, and do their own easy search, discovery and curation of wedding businesses. A place that allows the good, the bad and the ugly to be shared (through robust reviews), so that their decisions can be INFORMED. A place that becomes their sanctuary, guiding them through what needs to be done, and connecting them to the wider wedding world.
Wedding Day Whispers is our way to empower couples so they can gain control, and be confident in their decisions!
And of course, we know that there is a HUGE number of insanely talented and creative individuals out there working to make a couples wedding day special – and these businesses DESERVE to be found. They DESERVE to have their unique voices heard, and be able to attract more of their tribe. So, we want to give them a platform where this can happen. Where those that offer genuine and valued services can be more easily discovered.
SO, our purpose is clear – we want to support both couples and businesses to better CONNECT and be MATCHED, so the planning process can be seamless and FUN! At the end of the day, this is what it should be about. Not the stress. Not the anxiety. Just love and excitement : )
With this in mind, the aim of our inspiration blog is to give couples that extra support and empowerment with their planning. We don’t have all of the answers, but we’ll definitely share what inspires us and we think will help you.
And we absolutely LOVE hearing from all our couples getting hitched, and the amazing businesses supporting these nuptials – please share your thoughts and feedback at any time!
On a final note, we did say we would get a little personal… So let us introduce you to our fur babies!
Meet Zeus and Oreo.
Aren’t they just the CUTEST little men??!
How about you? Are you getting married? How are you finding everything? Do you have any pets? Tell us a bit about you : )
Leanne & Nicko xx
