Meet The Supplier… Doris Loves!

Light-Up Letters, Floral Chair Covers & Tattoo Stations…

Today we welcome Doris Loves to Mr & Mrs Unique! Founded by the lovely Amanda, she is always looking at ways to add some magic to your wedding day or event. Yes, she has light up letters… but what makes hers even more special is that they are run by batteries, so not only can they deliver to most places in the UK, you can place them anywhere! With no restriction of needing a power source you can put them in the middle of a field if you wanted!!

Another of my favourite service she offers is her temporary tattoo stations/ boxes. I recently has my girls second birthday and the kids went wild for the lego, robot, rainbow, unicorn and rocket tattoos. But thats not to say that adults are left out! With various collections for grown ups, these make such a fab addition to any party!! You can chose for them to come along with their pop up tattoo station or they can send these nifty boxes that has instruction, help yourself flag, sponge and tin bowl!

Here Amanda tells us more about her business and what she can do for you…

Tell us a bit about your business…

Doris Loves is a small business headed up by me aka Amanda and named after my very lovely cat! Together with my team we build clever and wonderful things which couples can hire for weddings and other events all over the country.

Our range includes floral chair covers which can spruce up the dingiest of old chairs; light up letters, which are uniquely battery powered and delivered by courier all over mainland Britain and the Temporary Tattoo Station which can be hired for your reception, getting your guests warmed up with an awesome tattoo. New for 2015 we have the Tattoo Station In A Box, which includes everything needed for your own tattoo station.

What made you start up the business…

Well like many wedding companies, Doris Loves was born out of the creations made for my own wedding. Whilst planning our big day, I was lucky enough to be one of Rock My Weddings Real Brides, which meant I blogged all about all the crazy DIY projects I was undertaking. This included the 100 floral chair covers I made from vintage and retro fabrics (seemed like a good idea at the time). The unexpected outcome was that I had other brides contact me and ask to hire these items. It was from there that Doris Loves was born…

This was a whole three years ago, and in that time I ran Doris Loves alongside a teaching career. Last year after the birth of my beautiful daughter, I took the decision to make Doris Loves my only job and have never looked back.

What makes you Unique…

Doris Loves is Unique in so many ways. Our Floral Chair Covers, Temporary Tattoo Station and Tattoo Station in a Box are the ONLY ones available in the country.

As for our Light-Up Letters not only are we the only company with battery powered Light-Up Letters but we are also the only company to use couriers. This means that not only do we have set prices with no sneaky hidden mileage costs, but also that we can reach all those beautiful venues in the middle of nowhere!

What kind of couples match your style of service…

We’re all about adding that extra fun touch to your big day, so if you just want to add a little fun element or if your weddings already crammed full of fun and entertainment and you want to keep it going, then we’ve got something for you.

Tells us what you love about your business…

There’s two things I LOVE about running Doris Loves, the first is receiving photos and emails from our couples after their big days. There’s nothing more exciting to receive in my inbox, to see the end result and how our products have helped make someone’s big day just that little bit extra special.

The second is working on new ideas and seeing them come to life. Coming from an art background I LOVE designing new products and seeing them come life is so exciting! I have lots of new ideas, it’s just finding the time to get them all in production!!!

Most favourite event/ wedding…

Now that’s a hard one. We’ve had a great time at all the weddings we’ve been lucky enough to attend with our Temporary Tattoo Station. I think for me, it would be a wedding from our first year of the Temporary Tattoo Station. We meet the couple at a wedding fair. After we spoke to them I turned to Darren and said ‘I want to go to their wedding!’ Luckily they felt the same. The bride wore an incredible custom red ball gown, there were actors dressed as storm-troopers as photobooth props, and an uber cool band dancing and singing oh and the groom broke out into a break-dancing routine! It was an incredible night!

People’s reaction to your business…

Normally a great big smile! Doris Loves is all about adding the extra something fun to your big day, so we’re always so happy that people’s reactions are just that, a great big smile!

Future plans…

Now that would be telling… I’ve got lots of sketching in my note book of new items to add to our Light-Up line as well as a list of new Temporary Tattoo’s I’d like to add to our collection. So it really will be a case of watch this space!!!

Well I will defiantly be watching!! If you are interested in finding out more about Doris Loves you can visit their website here.
