Tina & Candice, welcome to the Midlands Bridal Fair 2017 in KZN. We are so excited to introduce you and your business to our Brides- and Grooms-to-be!
Tell us a little bit about yourselves
Favoured was birthed out of our desire to serve others. We’re passionate about people and about providing a platform to not only build up local business but also about building the Kingdom of God. We want to see your event dreams come to life without burning a hole in your pocket. Whatever the day, we’re just a click away.
Tell people about your business and what you offer
Favoured is an online store offering trendy event décor and favours, at an affordable price. We adore the thrifty Bride and event connoisseur. Everything you could dream of, or pin, is at the push of a button.
How did you get into the wedding industry?
Individually, we have both had careers in the wedding and event industry. It was out of passion for the industry and building the Kingdom of God that brought us together to bring Favoured to life.
How long have you been doing this for?
Launched December 2016.
What do you love most about your job?
We love the thrifty Bride. We want to see them bring their event dreams to life without burning a hole in their pockets. We are passionate about setting the trend and building relationships with people as we set out to do that.
What differentiates your business and makes you stand out? What are you known for?
Tina and Candice are Favoured! We want people to know that there is a Twinsie-duo that is passionate about THEM! We have been, and will always be, about people over profit. We offer affordable event décor and favours and ensure that each item listed on our website is of the latest trend and easy to use.
What can visitors to the Midlands Bridal Fair expect to see from you at the fair?
We want visitors to come meet us and hear more about our story. What we love, and how we hope to make their perfect day a dream come true. We want the thrifty Bride to know that her special day is not out of reach and that with our help, she can create exactly what she’s been dreaming (pinning) about.
Any client testimonial/s you’d like to share?
Keep an eye out for our 2-page feature in The Ballito Magazine, February 2017 to March 2017 issue launching soon.
Tell us what inspires you. Any websites, people or companies that you follow?
We are always pinning new ideas and keeping up with the latest trends. We love @sweetbakes_, @weddingchicks and @the.wedding.bible. We also visit the Canton Fair in China twice a year to ensure that we are on trend and sourcing quality products that will make any Bride swoon.
Any upcoming wedding trend forecasts?
We LOVE the current s’mores trend and DIY cocktail bar trend. Pantone also recently launched the 2017 colour of the year (Greenery) and we can’t wait to bring this to life. Watch this space!
What advice would you give Brides- and/or Grooms-to be?
Do you have a favourite quote?
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit.” –John 15:5
This is the very foundation that birthed Favoured. Without Christ, our Lord and Saviour, we do not exist.
