Wedding groups, they are in an abundance aren't they?
Some being really great, some quite, to be frank, pointless!
Glam Brides Official was created back in August 2019, on a day when I was swiftly "removed" blocked (and might as well have been put on the naughty step ,it was a bit like being given a virtual wedgie) ! from one of the larger groups on Facebook for supporting a supplier being vilified, who could not defend himself, secondly for speaking up on another thread for a bride being belittled because of how much she had spent on her wedding, she wasn't bragging ,the thread was nasty and uncalled for, as was the admins "so what" attitude!
It really did make me evaluate why I was part of some of the wedding groups, was I simply staying in because I'm a supplier myself, did I have to be part of this culture?
I guess it was a day that I should of just scrolled on, save any drama, but I hate bullying of any kind! However, it was a blessing in a way as it did me a favour , because that day I set up Glam Brides Official for brides who were not on a shoestring budget and that the suppliers that were added to the group, would be a safe bet, also a place where wedding suppliers within the same category could connect with brides and get involved and network with other vendors too, all too often wedding suppliers are silenced on groups and treated like some kind of leper, lets face it, without us its going to be be tricky!
All suppliers within the group are vetted on submission, I do the vetting to ensure that the fraudsters don't enter the den! Sadly there's an awful lot of these characters, lurking in the shadows, who offer services for peanuts and brides fall foul of them, I've read and heard enough of these stories to make the hairs on the back of my neck stand on edge forever!
Quite simply our group is full of decent, talented, hard working wedding suppliers who provide beautiful products and services for the mid to high end bride, if you want to join us, your really welcome!
Suppliers are permitted to post once daily to share their updates if they have them.
What kind of group is it?
Well I refuse to pigeonhole the group to one type/ genre, as suppliers in the group cross the board, however what you will find is glamour is easily interpreted to most things, and if your looking for, quality, luxury and unique then your on the right footing
We welcome both brides and suppliers who are non budget no matter your wedding style
So if you're interested, come and join us .
Brides, let's get you on the road to your perfect day without the drama!

Weddings have changed,( thanks COVID 19! ) for now we have to roll with it! So, no matter what style of wedding you are planning, it has to be smaller, so getting the best quality is even more key to making your day run smoothly.
Within the Glam brides community, suppliers range from mid to high end UK and international ( for the destination brides). We have everything from venues to wedding planners, dress, shoe and accessory designers, florists, cake makers etc, etc, we pretty much cross the board
The group which you can find over on Facebook ,offers brides a private, environment to chat with other brides get guidance and find the right suppliers for their weddings
