Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
We are Button-Magic aka Kate and Nicky we are an engaged couple from Ayrshire, we have 3 kids and a wee dog.
What is your business?
We run a wedding shop from home, we are in the prosesse of securing
funding to open a shop in Ayrshire we started button-magic when we were looking in to our own wedding and found how much everything costs and then did lots of rescurch and talking to stockists ,to try and bring brides and grooms a cheaper way without having to get poorer made items.
What inspired you to start your business?
Getting engaged our self
What sets your business apart from the rest?
We make sure the prices stay low and the quality stays high, we don’t over
charge people like some other shops do and we will if the bride needs it
go to her wedding day and help dress her x
We also offer payment plans that brides can pay up over 28 weeks and still
change their mind up until the dress is ordered, so even if she is paying it up
she can still change her mind, because, well that’s what us ladies do.
What do you love best about your job?
The people – I get as excited about their wedding plans as they do. I can talk
for hours with them about it I’m like a kid in a candy store every time I start looking at all our pics of dresses, suits etc.
Have you ever had an unusual request from a bride?
We had a lady ask us to make her a dress she had seen a dog wear! which
was a bit odd and im afraid it was a bit out of our reach turning a doggy
dress into a brides dress he he.
What is your best selling product/service?
Wedding packages where you get everything for bride groom page boys and
brides made all at once and with an extra discount that you can pay up x
What advice can you offer brides planning their wedding?
Don’t over pay and make sure you get people that you feel comfortable with. Don’t feel pressured into anything make sure you’re getting what you want not what someone wants you to buy AND ENJOY IT
