Thank you, thank you, thank you!
This time in 2011, I nervously hit publish on the first ever WIATC website. I'd dreamt of creating a one-stop-shop for unique wedding stationery, favours and decor, featuring wonderful items that last, are fairtrade, made from recycled material, or created right here in the UK. I had couples like us and our friends in mind; those who want to have their day, their way - low-key, eco-friendly and reflective of them!
Now seven years (yikes!), thousands of sales and two babies later, I'm absolutely blown away by your continued support. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for choosing to buy from WIATC. Not only have I been able to create and source products that have played a part in your special days (and loved every minute of it!) but, thanks to you, we've steadily grown too. We’re now a team of five (all working part time around the school runs, assemblies and sports days) making and finding dreamy products, behind the scenes.
Like that lovely (but rather long!) quote says: "When you buy from a small business, you're not helping a CEO buy a holiday home. You're helping a little girl get dance lessons, a little boy get his beloved football kit and a mum put food on the table." Here at WIATC, this couldn't be more true!
Needless to say, it's no mean feat us surviving in this climate - with the sheer growth of online retailers and choice now available, I am beyond grateful to every single person who's ever bought from us. It really does mean the world.
In celebration of our Birthday I'd love to offer you a little discount on your order this month. Just use code: BIRTHDAY15 by 31st December to get 15% off!
So whether you want to get your stocking fillers sorted, wedding stationery and decor ordered or are thinking ahead to that 2019 baby shower or hen party; snap up your gifts, favours and decorations for less!
As if our birthday wasn’t enough, we’ve got even more reasons to p-a-r-t-y (or have a few glasses of Prosecco on a Saturday afternoon - we are mums after all!), as we’ve been entered for The British Wedding Awards 2019 too, which thanks to your votes we've been won awards in for the last two years!
If you’d like to vote for us for the 'finishing touches' award (and your other fave wedding suppliers), it'd be the icing on the cake to our celebrations! Vote and see who else made the list here.
Thank you for choosing to shop with my small biz, you are fabulous!
Love, Hester x
