Rock My Wedding

web: rockmywedding.co.uk // instagram: @rockmywedding

Great for:

  • Dream wedding styling and inspiration
  • Real Weddings
  • Supplier Directory

Okay, so some of the unreal weddings that feature on the front page of Rock My Wedding are bona-fide budget busting blowouts, but it’s like dream house hunting — pick some of the best parts of these always sumptuous and exciting weddings to put your own twist on. Our favourite featured wedding from RMW? The London to New Orleans street party wedding. What would we have done to be a guest at that one?? 🎺

Instagram

instagram: instagram.com

Great for:

  • Finding local suppliers
  • Finding local venues

Keep your ideas, images and supplier contacts in your pocket. When you find someone in your local area whose Instagram has caught your eye, it’s as easy as a follow to make sure you don’t forget them and can contact them in a flash. Make use of localised hashtags and DM anyone with quick questions or introductions.

Supplier and Venue Open Days

Great for:

  • Sizing things up, measuring and sampling
  • Making comparisons
  • Meeting your suppliers, face to face

Open days and weekends are a fantastic opportunity to meet with suppliers and see venues or marquees that are on your Wishlist. Sometimes you can’t beat seeing things up close, or tasting things in person, or seeing a place with your own eyes. You’re looking for a good feeling overall, and you may even end up with some discounts. Most open days in your area will advertise online. Check info for our next open days here.
