A massive, warm welcome from the brand new wedding blog brought to you by Wedding Bid Easy.
Weddingbideasy.co.uk is the UK’s first wedding auction website whereby brides list their wedding requirements and local wedding suppliers submit quotes for the job.
The website was created in order to support brides and grooms with the wedding planning process, reducing stress and managing budget. It was also set up to support wedding suppliers to advertise their business, secure more leads and build their online reputation. The website offers a marketplace whereby suppliers can advertise their business for free on our suppliers’ directory.
Planning a wedding can be a stressful, daunting process. Often brides and grooms will spend countless hours emailing and calling wedding suppliers to check prices, availability and suitability. Often waiting days or even weeks for a response. It can often get confusing and stressful for even the most organised of people. Wedding Bid Easy aims to reduce that level of stress and transform the way wedding are planned in the UK.
Brides and grooms can join the site, list their requirements and sit back while wedding suppliers come to them! For example, a bride in Northampton needs a photographer for 6 hours on March 15th 2017. The bride describes the details of the job and then lists her requirements on the website. All photographers are then notified of the job via email. The photographers can then review the job and decide whether or not to submit their price for the job based on the individual details the bride has provided. If the supplier needs a bit more detail or if the couple want to ask the supplier some additional questions, there is a direct messaging system that can be used. They can choose whether to put a budget limit on the advert or can choose to keep her budget private. The bride can choose how long to run the advert for. They can view the suppliers work through their social media links on their profile. The couple can choose whether to make the auction private or public. Private listings may occur when the couple view a supplier profile on the website, fall in love with their work and want to request a quote just from that one supplier. There’s lots of different ways to fulfil the requirements of the engaged couple whilst generating more business for suppliers. Don’t forget, the bride can also read any reviews that have been left for that particular supplier on the website.
Once the listing has ended, the engaged couple can review all the quotes and choose which supplier she would like to go with. A deposit is paid and the transaction is complete! The bride can list as many adverts for jobs as she likes! Ranging from catering, photography, videography, florist, venue decoration, stationary, bridal hair and makeup, venues, DJ/bands plus many more. Anything wedding related!
We know some brides have a very strict budget and will primarily be using the website to find suppliers within their budget. Other brides may have something unique or quirky that they want and don’t have the time to be emailing countless suppliers to see if they can meet their needs. Other couples may be booking a last minute wedding and therefore time is of the essence. Whatever the circumstance, Wedding Bid Easy can help!
We have lots of exciting things in the pipeline for the blog and the website-For brides and grooms as well as wedding suppliers. Keep checking back for updates! You can also find us on Twitter and Facebook.
