So, planning a wedding is a giant task right? No matter how chill + relaxed you are. We know this, we’ve done it, we work the industry, WE GET IT. So we’re trying to make it easier for you guys with our one stop shop style Directory here and our different market events through the year – And this year, our Spring edition happens upon Mothers Day which gives us all the excuse we need to shout out to all the POWERFUL WOMEN out there raising the future and planning that wedding celebration at the same time.
So we’re holding a giveaway! It’s a celebration of motherhood, a high five to all the mamas out there , a fist bump to all the mamabrides planning while pregnant, with babes in arms, or to those mum folk who raised you and your partner.
Because you and they fucking deserve it.
AND We’ve got a £150 for you to spend on any supplier on our directory, 4 tickets to our Edinburgh wedding market plus a bundle of mama focused prizes (see list below!) for you or your best lady mama. And all you have to do to be in with a win chance – is some tagging on the ol‘ instagram. And you’ve got until MIDNIGHT on SUNDAY 25th March to join in!
It’s an amazing time to be a mother – we’re hopefully feeling loved and empowered by the times, the #strongmothermovement and the work being done by an inspiring mountain of super humans campaigning for equality and social change. All those insta mum and mamamerch makers championing solidarity + support in the #motherhoodrising community with honesty + humour.
WE. ARE. INTO. IT.
SO – we’ve teamed up with a gang of pals to put together a prize hamper fit for all you queens to enter yourself or for a pal, your mamabride (here’s looking at you, boys) or your mum / mum-in-law / aunty you name it. There’s something in it for any mum…
