why we do it
We’ve been there
We know what it's like you've done everything right. You've priced yourself fairly in the market based on research and your own experience and education. Then the hobbyist comes along charges a third of the price and is cleaning up.
This is why the society exists to support you and to educate brides on why they need to rely on trusted vendors like you, with proven track records.
We will help you improve your positioning and streamline your business so you can spend your time doing what you love using your skills to make someones day the best day of their lives.

If COVID-19 has taught us anything it's to hug the ones you love more often, visit with them and let them know how much they mean to you. However, as business owners it is so easy to get wrapped up in work that days turn into weeks and if we aren't careful weeks turn into months.
We've created a free guide with 5 ideas for future-proofing your business. Use this guide to increase your revenue streams so that you can focus on the stuff you love and the people you love.
Why they joined
I think couples are looking for that little bit of reassurance that the suppliers they are booking are genuine and that they can be trusted. By displaying the SPWV badge I believe this will help attract more clients and in particular the right type of client who cares about quality.

Brides and grooms need to be sure that they are dealing with people who are committed to their line of business. As committed vendors, we need a body to promote us.
