Let’s not pretend that weddings are cheap. With so many fabulous products and suppliers waiting to help you throw the party of the century, it’s all too easy to get carried away, then watch helplessly as your bank balance goes into free-fall and your credit cards spiral towards their limits.
It’s a scenario that Alexa Scott of wedding deals website I Do Licious is determined to stamp out, as she explains: “With the recession, engaged couples are finding it harder to make their budget go further – every one wants and deserves to have their dream day. And I Do Licious can make this happen by giving them exclusive money-off deals from reliable and established wedding suppliers.” The company organises wedding deals for all aspects of the big day, from venues to photography, chocolate fountains to LED dancefloors, and much more. “We negotiate the deals, so that the couples don’t have to,” reveals Alexa, which must be the best news ever for barter-shy engaged couples!
Since launching in January 2013, the I Do Licious team have had 25% of Scottish engaged couples signing up to their website, a success rate that has culminated in them winning ‘Most Accelerated Business in the West Coast’ at the ‘Hatchery Hits The Street Awards’ at the Thistle Hotel in Glasgow in January. The prestigious event saw 15 entrepreneurs pitch their business idea in front of 600 guests, investors and businesses, as well as some of the countries top influential entrepreneurs Sir Tom Hunter, Lord Willie Haughey and Ann Gloag OBE. Sounds scary to us, but Alexa took it all in her stride. “I like to think we are saving the world, one wedding at a time,” she laughs.
