What does Weddingtableplans.com do?
We love working closely with customers, translating their aspirations into a perfect wedding table plan design. We create stunning bespoke table plans and coordinating wedding stationery, ensuring each customer’s desired theme and personality is reflected at their wedding breakfast.
Who works at Weddingtableplans.com and what are your roles?
Weddingtableplans.com is a small team dedicated to perfection. My role is to liaise closely with customers, from receipt of order through to dispatch, giving customers invaluable peace of mind. Being responsible for the creativity, I also update the website with new designs, gallery images and customer testimonials.
Being fortunate enough to share premises with my husband’s exhibition design business, weddingtableplans.com oversees completion of each order ‘in-house’, from start to finish, with a dedicated production team managing the print, hand finishing and packaging.
How did Weddingtableplans.com come about and how long has the company been running?
Weddingtableplans.com evolved some years after setting up an exhibition design business. It was the decade when the majority of our friends and family were getting married, and with our design background and in-house production equipment we were able to supply table plans for their weddings.
After a short career break to have children, I returned to work setting up a basic website for weddingtableplans.com, and continued to work within the exhibition business until I had established a decent range of table plan designs and was achieving regular orders.
Four years on we have a diverse portfolio of designs, a comprehensive website and, I am proud to say, hundreds of satisfied customers.
Describe your workshop.
Due to the nature of the space required for exhibition stand build and large format print we have large premises, but weddingtableplans.com operates from a cosy corner of the office area which I have adorned with floral bunting and vintage frames to make it my own zone of creativity! The plans are printed on our large format printers, laminated, hand finished, framed, checked and packaged in the extensive production area.
