Top Tips Tuesday: Sweet Treats From Swizzels
Morning, loves! I do hope that you’re all well today?
Whilst it may be a little dark and dreary outside this morning, we know we’ve got just the right idea to brighten up your day, and well, just make it that little bit sweeter.
For a few weeks, The Wedding Affair HQ have certainly been feeling the love and there’s no surprise why when we’ve been SO busy with wedding fairs, meeting such beautiful couples and working with some really talented suppliers, too. Another reason has to be that we’ve been having talks with the lovely people from Swizzels and we’re super lucky and excited to announce them as official gift bag sponsors (eek!).
You may have already collected your luxury gift bag from our wedding events and received a little packet of deliciousness, if not then don’t worry! There’s still time for you to register for our final event of the year or even for our growing and most gorgeous selection next Spring.
So without further ado, i’ve got some more information from Swizzels themselves, their pastel pretty treats and how they can complete all the little details for your very own wedding day.
Tell us a little bit about you and what made you start up your company. Are there any highlights in your career that are special to you either professionally or personally?:-
“Swizzels have been making sweets since 1928. We are best known as the inventors of Love Hearts, Drumstick, Parma Violets, Fizzers and Refreshers bars which have all been enjoyed for generations around the world. But we haven’t stopped there! The talented inventors at our Derbyshire factory are still creating brand new jellies, chews, lollies and other sweets for you to enjoy and share.”
What makes you different and inspires Brides/Grooms?:-
“Our delicious sweets are iconic, instantly recognisable and guaranteed to please guests of all ages. Our Personalised Love Hearts Wedding Favours and Personalised Love Hearts Place Name Settings, add a playful element your wedding decor and provide you and your guests with a lasting memento of your big day. If you are looking for a fun and imaginative way to decorate your wedding tables and would like personalised table decorations that taste as good as they look, our range of wedding Love Hearts are perfect!”
If you were to offer three tips to a Bride/Groom, on planning their wedding, what would they be?
1. It’s the small personal touches that express your personality as a couple that makes a wedding memorable for all the right reasons.
2. Get organised, avoid stress by put together a wedding planning schedule and do things one by one, in a logical order, so you don’t take on too much too fast.
3. Lighten your list, a big guest list can send costs spiralling, create a guest list in tiers of priority starting with close immediate family and close friends and working out from there. Don’t feel the need to invite everyone.
What type of Venue, Style of Wedding or Theme would suit your products or services and why?
‘Our sweets are perfect for any venue and great for adding a playful element to wedding reception decor. The iconic Love Hearts packaging makes them ideal for a retro or vintage themed wedding and the personalised packaging means everyone can take a little memento of your wedding home with them . If you love the colourful retro style of our sweets, you could have a playful Love Heart theme running throughout your dining room décor. The cute pastel coloured Love Heart sweets with their adorable messages look lovely scattered with rose petals across the tables. To really make a statement, you can have big glass jars overflowing with Love Hearts as the centrepiece of your tables and around the dining room. You could even have a colourful candy buffet!’
What are your plans for the future, where would you like to be in 5 years time both in the industry and personally?
“We will continue to make our much-loved sweets and develop brand new jellies, chews, lollies and other sweets for you to enjoy and share!”
Do you have premises or stockists? Where should Brides/Grooms go to find your products? Are you looking for further stockists and if so, in which areas?
Sending huge love to you all today and to our delicious new sponsors at Swizzels! Have a lovely day all x
