Truly Scrumptious has grown enormously since our first show 7 years ago and we are now the largest and we like to think the best provider of wedding shows in the area. Our popular shows give couples an ideal opportunity to source and meet great local suppliers but wedding planning doesn’t happy just during show season so what do couples do at other times of the year? The Internet is a BIG scary place and behind the flashy website how do couples know who’s good and who isn’t? There are so many companies out there, who, from a customer view point, are all doing the same thing so how do they sort the wheat from the chaff! Does the company have insurance, certificates, are they a reputable business or a here today gone tomorrow type? Reviews can be false and we’ve all heard horror stories and unsuspecting couples have lost money or received a less then satisfactory service on what is probably one of the most important days of their lives!
So what's the solution? We could increase the number of shows and spread them throughout the year but our emphasis has always been on quality and not just quantity and to add more shows into what can be a crowded and sometimes over-saturated market place we believe would be detrimental to the industry as a whole and is not a route we will take.
Truly Scrumptious has always been customer led, focused and innovative and continually strive to deliver the very best service to our customers in what is an ever changing environment and it is vital that we don't just meet but exceed expectations of the modern bride and groom and so we are delighted to not only be the FIRST but the ONLY local company to launch our own App.
