BB Boutique offers hundreds of unique products, including bridal gowns & accessories, grooms wear, decor ideas, cakes, gifts, favours and stationery, many of which can be customised to fit the bespoke nature of a wedding. You will also find a comprehensive directory of high quality services, including photographers, entertainers, transport providers, venues & videographers. This one single platform enables customers to not only buy all the products they require from one single checkout, but also to contact vendors and create & share wish lists with family members and friends.
Before launching BB boutique, founders Emily & Jessica, co-founded leading UK wedding blog ‘Bespoke Bride’, twice winners at the Wedding Blog Awards, hosted by the UK’s popular bridal magazine, Wedding & Wedding Flowers. This year the blog has also been nominated for ‘Best wedding Blog’ by leading lifestyle magazine, Cosmopolitan. Other notable achievements include being listed as one of the UK’s top 10 wedding blogs by Channel 4’s Scrapbook as well as regular features in magazines such as Wedding & Wedding Flowers, Perfect Wedding, Marie Claire and the UK’s fastest selling wedding magazine, Rock n Roll Bride.
Summer of last year also saw Emily & Jess announced the winners of ‘Upstart Women’, a competition held between The Festival of Female Entrepreneurship and Webstart Bristol to find the best female-led tech start up, with a prize of £15,000 investment and a place on Webstart Bristol’s incubator programme.
Since then, the founders have been working hard on creating the beta version of BB boutique, which launched last month. Within 2 weeks the business is already revenue generating with a total of 48 active suppliers and has already seen over 8,500 visits to the site.
Emily & Jessica are now getting ready to launch their crowd funding round on Seedrs. The money raised will go towards further developments towards the site and expanding the companies team.
“The way people are shopping has changed” says co founder Emily. “People are now favouring online over high street.” And as a leading, award winning, UK wedding blog, Bespoke Bride has witnessed firsthand the limitations couples are still experiencing when it comes to searching for products and suppliers for their wedding. “Faced with traditional wedding fairs and magazines, couples are increasingly looking to blogs like ours for inspiration. But the search doesn’t end there. Couples are then tasked with trawling though hundreds of static ads and sponsored posts in order to find the suppliers that best suit their needs.”
Planning a wedding is currently a difficult task. BB boutique aims to make this process much easier. In our marketplace, couples can search for specific products & suppliers, refining the process by price and location, as well as reading reviews and being the first to hear about discounts and offers.”
We are the UK’s first online wedding marketplace, dedicated to showcasing both unique wedding services and products. BB boutique will take the multibillion wedding market by storm and revolutionize the way people search and shop for products and suppliers for their weddings.
