Nothing makes us happier than helping our customers create their dream wedding day. We recently caught up with Frederica Scott to hear all about how she planned her wedding, and how Feast It helped to make it the best day of her life.
The most vital aspect was booking suppliers who represented the tastes of my husband Mathias and I. I've been to a lot of weddings in the past where I felt the tone didn't really reflect the personalities of the people themselves. Many seem to go for safe options and that just wasn't us for us; we wanted our guests to remember our special day forever!
For us that meant a rustic, festival-theme involving food trucks, a vintage-style marquee and camping for guests. We felt this perfectly complemented who we are as people and was something many of our guests, particularly the older ones, had never experienced before.
This was the first large scale event that I'd ever organised and if I'm being honest I didn't know exactly where to start. Speaking to friends made the whole wedding planning process seem even more daunting, as they told me about how they'd dealt with all of their suppliers independently and it sounded like herding cats!
When I discovered Feast It it was a godsend, knowing that I could guarantee booking high quality suppliers and deal with them all in one place. It was very useful being able to split the payment for the wedding into a monthly bill.
Another aspect that worked well was that that Feast It vets suppiers not only on the quality of their product, but also on their professionalism and general friendliness, and knowing that we were in safe hands with our suppliers was very settling.
We had a food truck to come and serve late night bacon butties, which kept the party going for a few hours longer for sure, and I didn't appreciate how much of a difference the beautiful flowers would make.
I would also add how important it was to book a high quality staffing agency. The staff were impeccable on the day and it really helped to make the day run smoothly.
We had a great photographer, but I do wish we'd booked a videographer for the day, we would really appreciate having some professional footage to look back on.
Secondly, perhaps it's a little clichéd but in hindsight it would've been great to have an old school Mr Whippy van turn up, I think it wouldn've gone down really well and I've now realised how cheap it would've been.
It poured with rain, but actually I'd say that ended up enhancing the occasion. By the end of the night all the guests were dancing outside and it was absolutely brilliant.
There was half an hour where it seemed as though the portaloos had broken, but thankfully they were fixed and the less said about that issue the better!
