Wedding Suppliers galore!!
I've recently noticed the number of Brides (& the odd Groom) asking on Social Media about Ballarat Wedding Suppliers spike. After pondering on it (& asking myself the question), how can I help without only promoting my business?
When I see a newly Engaged couple on Facebook asking for recommendations of Wedding Suppliers, I'm ofter reminded of Seagulls looking for a Chip.......
Yes, the requestings friends, family, strangers & randoms all throw their "chip" into the pile, while Wedding Suppliers seem to clamber over each other to get the chip - Mine, mine, mine, MINE.....
For Brides and Grooms from outside of Ballarat, finding a Wedding Supplier can be even more daunting than it is for locals as they have little to no knowledge of our area. I can only imagine the image above is an exact representation of how our Industry looks to them. Ballarat is known for it's history and style. It is a sought after location for weddings in Victoria and many brides and grooms consider Ballarat a destination wedding location for it's amazing gardens, venues, activities and accommodation options. But, how do Brides and Grooms wade through the countless Wedding Suppliers, recommendations and names dropped?
I remembered the association that I'm on the Committee for - Ballarat Wedding Industry Network (BWIN). BWIN is an association that was formed in 2013 to develop relationships and encourage like-minded business professionals. Part of this is a requirement that the Businesses are Professionals, not a backyarder looking for quick cash. The Businesses required to have a Registered Business Name, Insurance and an ABN. The level of customer service is required to be just as high as the level of the Service they provide for the Brides and Grooms big day.
To make things even easier for Brides and Grooms, we've put together a registry of our Members. We have local Ballarat Wedding Suppliers from Celebrants, Venues, Photographers (of course) right through to Jewelry Suppliers, Wedding Vehicles and Event Hirers. Yup, we're good like that

So, next time you see on Social Media a Bride &/or Groom asking about Wedding Suppliers, remember this Blog, the picture above and above all the BWIN Wedding Supplier Registry. Point the Bride and Groom to the registry & remind them that all of our Members are required to be at a very high standard.
If you're a Wedding Supplier and not yet a member of BWIN, jump over to the Website and enquire about becoming a member and come to one of our many gatherings.
