Do you guys remember the above picture? We posted it to our social media back in October, as we prepared and prettied ourselves to attend the Wedding Blog Awards and you guys guys ‘cooed’ and ‘ahhed’ (and we ‘cooed’ and ‘ahhed’) over the pictured cinematic light box.
Entirely customisable, you can create exactly the message you want (hell, you can even create your own letter tiles!) and all for a fraction of the cost of most light boxes on the market…
And where did we discover this absolute gem?
Meet Wedding Mall UK; bang on trend accessories for your wedding, that are affordable, accessible and yours to style exactly as you wish.
Let’s meet the people behind this great online store…
Tell us a little about yourself…
Wedding Mall is a small company based in the Leicestershire countryside with a background in selling floristry supplies.
My name is Isobel and I run all of the creative pursuits for the site, anything that needs to look fun and creative I will lend my hand to and everything else in-between. My background is in design but I am also dabble in floristry so you’ll often see my tweaking bunches of flowers for vase pictures and playing around to make inspiration pages and mood boards for the site.
In 2011 Wedding Mall began, with the aim of selling affordable centrepieces and decor to everyday brides.
If you had a chance to go to any music festival, which one would it be?
You need variety in life, so the best festivals are those with an eclectic mix of music and things to do! Anything with great acts, good food and good company!
You can’t beat stomping around in the English mud so Moseley Folk Festival in Birmingham close to home or Kendal Calling in Cumbria are great fun.
One of the best festival I went to recently was End of the Road festival set in a beautiful gardens complete with peacocks wandering around the grounds, my highlight of the weekend was a secret disco in the woods complete with a light up dance floor.
What made you decide to start Wedding Mall?
Wedding Mall evolved from a floristry supplies company. At the time Wedding Mall began, there were very little bridal decor retailers online and we wanted to offer everything a couple could need for their wedding by mail order from the comfort of your armchair.
As we’ve grown our product list has just got longer and longer and now we find ourselves with an ever growing range of more than 5,000 products.
Everyone knows how stressful wedding planning can be and by putting everything in one place we aimed to create a simple and easy to use site for brides to browse and hopefully make the operation as smooth as can be.
Tell us a little bit more about your products…
We offer an eclectic range of wedding decor products for mail order, to suit most themes, styles, venues and budget.
Our portfolio of products includes tonnes of centrepiece ideas – glassware, candelabras and large centrepieces such as artificial trees. As well as the smaller details such as favours, stationery and tableware.
More recently we’ve launched a brand new inspiration page where, we’ve created a number of guides and articles to guide you through the tricky bits and bring out the DIY bride in you. Complicated centrepieces are broken down into simple steps and illustrations to guide you through, as well as product news and mood boards to get you inspired.
What are some of your favourite memories + experiences from previous couples you’ve worked with?
Being an online company we rarely meet customers face to face but throughout my time with Wedding Mall we’ve had some such lovely testimonials that I have started a “Happy Wall”.
All the lovely e-mails we receive and phone calls to thank us are pinned up and it just seems to grow and grow.
If our readers were to order your products with you for their wedding, what can they expect?
Customers can expect an easy online experience with plenty of choice and variety, a friendly voice at the end of the phone if they need any advice and plenty of interesting products as well as all the basics you might need.
How do you know if Wedding Mall is right for your wedding?
Many of our customers are busy brides, with little time to spare you can easily order everything to your house and that’s what we’re all about.
If you’re working to a budget, we have lots of basics which are perfect for those wanting to add their own touch.
What’s your best piece of advice for couples who’re trying to choose their wedding decor?
Everyone is different so you will never please every guest. There are so many ideas and inspiration out there it’s easy to get lost, remember the day is about you and your future husband or wife, so be yourself and choose what feels right to create a day that you will enjoy and remember for the rest of your life.
If you’re planning to the decor yourself remember you’re only human and ask for help. It’s great to bring together your new family or rope in your bridesmaids for DIY projects, as long as you repay the favour, they’ll be flattered you asked.
And you can order them all from the comfort of your own home! This is the dream, people! Haha 😉
If you’re looking for convenience that doesn’t cost you style, you can find Wedding Mall in our directory now!
We can’t wait to see how you guys style up their beautiful pieces!
Peace + Love
