Tell us about yourself

Hi, I’m Alexandra. I started my company in 2020, although I have been doing this for so long on a smaller scale ( friends and family ). My motivation comes from my desire to make people’s life more enjoyable. The day of your wedding shouldn’t be a stressful one; it should be pleasant because that’s one time in life event. People need a break from everyday life and celebrate love and commitment to one another. Offering the complete package for an affordable price is my goal.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

I start everything from scratch by myself, not knowing anyone, having no connections, with a very low budget making everything worth the hassle.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

Saying ‘’No’’! It is not an easy thing to say, but I need to do what’s right for my business.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Research your niche.
  2. Focus on your business plan.
  3. Be humble.
