The current lockdown has not only made us all realise how important our friends & family really are, but also how fragile our local economy is. In light of this, brides planning their 2021 big day are opting for British products, services and nearby suppliers for their wedding in 2021. To support this movement & to help you in your wedding planning, we have put together our list of the Best Wedding Suppliers in Bedfordshire in order to celebrate & support the talented people in our county.
Lockdown has put a huge strain on the UK economy and, in 2021, we’re going to see more couples choose to support the UK’s phenomenal network of suppliers, bridal boutiques and independent businesses with their hard-earned money.
The buzz of going out to a wedding shop, to feel the fabrics of the dresses, to see the styles in person and try them on will be such a luxury and encourage more brides to invest in British businesses. More couples will turn to independent shops on Etsy and local designers to buy their décor and stationery instead of choosing Amazon or a big corporate brand. Local suppliers, from caterers to photographers, will get more bookings as couples choose to invest in the economy on their doorstep.
So here is our list of The Best Wedding Suppliers in Bedfordshire
