Sweet & Pretty Weddings

Happy Valentines Day everyone. Today is a personal post on a day of love and a day of happiness for me as I am officially relaunching my business following taking some time out to be a mummy to my new baby and my gorgeous toddler. While I have been away from the wedding industry for a bit it gave me time to think about what I have learnt over the past couple of years about what brides want on their special day and how I can appeal more to the Bristol wedding market.

There are a lot of couples locally who are looking for a certain feel for their wedding. They want it to be beautiful, fun, individual and to reflect who they are as individuals. They like vintage and whimsical inspired weddings with lots of gorgeous touches that their guests will adore. In essence they are looking for gorgeous products that will make their wedding sweeter and prettier and hence Sweet & Pretty was born.


The new website is unashamedly pink and polka dotty pretty and showcases the things I have brought with my from the two businesses I have merged together. I got into candy buffets as a bit of a whim because I loved them myself and they really took off under Bristol Candy Buffet. Now Sweet & Pretty takes them to a new level with much more design led and styled candy buffets with a large range of backdrops, props and printables.

I have added a range of personalised favours to appeal to those seeking a DIY feel but lacking the time or energy to make their own. I have also added some sweet apothecary jars and birdcages that can be hired and one clever bride has already found these online and ordered the birdcages for her August wedding before I've even launched them officially.


I have really enjoyed helping couples to plan their weddings at How 2 I Do Wedding & Event Planning so I am still offering Full and Partial Wedding Planning, On the Day Wedding Coordination and Venue Styling. If you are looking for a wedding planner covering Bristol, Bath, Somerset and Gloucestershire, please get in touch to book a free consultation.

My favourite new thing has to be the vintage sweet shop that you can hire for your wedding. How would you like a vintage sweet shop at your wedding just for you and your guests with 20 jars filled with the nations favourite sweets like cola bottles, chocolate limes, fruit salads, bon bons, pineapple cubes and many more. The sweet shop is light and very flexible so it works with any venue. It also has vintage weighing scales to give your guests "a quarter of" their favourite treat, a smiling assistant to serve and lots of vintage props to choose from.

I will be bringing the vintage sweet shop, some favours and some birdcages to the Chipping Sodbury Wedding Fair on the 24th February and will also be exhibiting at the Bristol Vintage Wedding Fair at Clifton pavillion on the 10th March so please come and say hello or take a look at my website.
