The overall price of a wedding can get ridiculous with costs escalating as time goes on
(PRWeb UK) March 20, 2011
MyWeddingJobs.co.uk has launched a unique website which promises to have any bride-to-be beaming with pleasure.
The brand new bidding site aims to turn the average cost of a wedding on its head yet still give the happy couple a day to remember.
It is also set to take the strain out of the big day by allowing couples to browse through a range of suppliers at leisure without having to scroll through hundreds of supplier sites.
The concept of bringing together bridal consumers and suppliers ‘under the one roof’ is the brainchild of Derby entrepreneur Sonia Kanda. She remembers the rising price tag and strain of planning her own wedding five years ago.
“The overall price of a wedding can get ridiculous with costs escalating as time goes on,” she said. “Where myweddingjobs.com prevents this is by getting brides to post up how much they plan to spend on their wedding.
“Suppliers are then encouraged to bid for the various jobs knowing how much is in the bride’s budget. That way everyone knows what’s on the table to begin with and no-one is wasting anyone’s time. It’s a simple, effective and stress-free way to plan your nuptials.”
Those looking to purchase bridal services post up their requirements for free. This includes dates, times, duration, location and cost. These then become available to any supplier wishing to browse.
Suppliers interested in the jobs displayed on myweddingjobs.co.uk sign-up for a minimal charge and let the bride know they are interested by placing a bid. The bride can then choose which bid she prefers based on price and information in the supplier’s email to her.
Nervous brides can also check supplier feedback given by those who have used them in the past.
With the average cost of tying the knot now around £15,000 wedding planners are convinced the business will be a big success, particularly in these recession-hit times.
The site only launched this week but already myweddingjobs.co.uk has received plenty of interest from wedding planners and suppliers.
“Judging by the response we’ve had in only a few days it is obvious there’s a need for something like this,” said Sonia. “We’re just delighted to be helping. After all, even getting to the church on time is stressful enough, without worrying about the huge debt you’ve just run up for the big day.
“It’s just a shame that royal bride Kate Middleton had already planned her wedding before we came on the scene!”
