Calm down brides and grooms, you need not make yourself gray over this conundrum. (Unless you are well into the Granny Chic silver hair trend, which we are so on board with too.) Thankfully, we have THE SOURCE to answer all our wedding planning needs. And when I say all, I literally mean all.
Set up by another Juggilist Massive powerhouse mum/events entrepreneur, Talya and seasoned events planner Aron, The Source is a free, well organised, directory for all your event planning needs. It even has it's own highly extensive wedding planning section. Combine this with industry news, trends and inspiration, and you pretty much have your own pocket professional, accessible 24/7, on your mobile, laptop or tablet! Eek. I can already feel the anxiety ease.
|Aron & Talya, founders of The Source|
We are lucky enough to have Talya and Aron exhibit with us next week at our London leg of Most Curious Wedding Fair. How exciting! We caught up with Tayla to talk business...
Why did you decide to set up your own business?
Both Aron and I have a passion for event planning, but The Source was born out of the frustration we saw clients and friends were having when searching for event suppliers and inspiration. Most directories were nothing more than overwhelming lists of names and numbers - not very accessible! We felt it was important to bring together a hand picked collection of exciting, innovative brands that all have a pro active approach to high standard customer service.

Who or what inspires you?
I would describe myself as an entrepreneur and love making connections - whether that be with clients, brands or between ideas. I am so inspired by all of the service providers we showcase at The Source, I love their proactive approach and innovative solutions.
What words would you use to describe the trends for 2017?
In events, definitely immersive experiences, creative solutions, colour.
We only have a week left until we open our doors at the Old Truman Brewery. If you still haven't got your TICKET, don't worry busy bees we still have a few left in our clutches, we cannot wait to meet you!
