Afternoon all, as correctly predicted we did get a rather large amount of snow. Atticus is utterly perplexed by it. (see instagram). Days like today make me feel very grateful because I can stay warm inside and write about lovely things.

I mentioned this morning that Tori and Carly of The Something Borrowed Boutique wrote the best supplier submission I had ever received. Whilst I won’t divulge word for word why it was great here are the basics:

It was 626 words long. Usually submissions are very short, or just images but they captured my attention with a little bit of history about the girls.

♥ Zip file of 40 images and links – always always always add images AND links. If a submission has neither I am less likely to go looking for whatever you would like me to write about.

It was personal – it is a piss take not to add the bloggers name when it was in the email address.

♥ It ended with “we just want to spread the love!!” – sentiment always wins. I need to believe in what you are writing about. Whether it has come from you or a PR agency.

Anywho! Based in Warwickshire and surrounding areas, Tori and Carly will work with you to design or supply pieces to make your wedding unique. Whether you are looking for vintage, rustic, whimsical or traditional and classic pieces. They also have a gorgeous vintage car that used to belong to Carly’s grandad’s. Their pricing is exceptionally good as well, to download a list click here.
