Letter #1 - About Dapper & Bride
The Personalised Wedding Magazine. Your Introduction to the Sauce...
Hello hello :)
Thanks for visiting our website and taking the time to find out a little more about Dapper & Bride.
If you are here, it means wedding bells are ringing, so let me start off by sending the biggest congrats your way! CONGRATULATIONS! I’m so happy an excited for you :) If you’re checking us out for a friend or close family member, because you think this is the best thing you’ve ever seen, then *fist bump* to you as well… You’re in the right place!
Before we get into the sauce, allow me to introduce myself as your editor–in-chief, Kysha Marie Buffong, hello again :) Amongst creative and fun things, I run this crazy and colourful ship.
So where do I start?
I love magazines. I love weddings. #Boom – Well, there’s a little more to it than that I guess.
I’ve been designing forever and been obsessed with magazines even longer. Collecting them throughout my teens, my degree title is ‘Magazines’ lol, really, it is. And who doesn’t love a good wedding?! My favourite thing to eat is cake, the dance floor is my friend and the speeches either hilariously have you on cringe level 5, buried in your boobs or your cheeks rising like golf balls towards the heavens.
Now, although I have yet to have my own and Wedding Crashers is one of my favourite movies, I’ve been working in the wedding industry since 2014, creating wonderful wedding stationery and have met some of the most amazing brides and grooms along the way. I hope you’ll be one of them.
How did weddings and magazines come to meet, you ask?
I saw a replica of OK Magazine at an event and my imagination ran wild on how I could create something magical in the wedding space. As a creative, my first thought was how to transform an order of service into the best wedding memorabilia ever and in the car ride home, I had mapped out what you will come to know as Dapper & Bride.
As for the name… I really wanted to create something inclusive for all the grooms of the world. I mean, when you think wedding, you think bride, white dress, flowers – that bridal list goes on for miles. I thought it was important to celebrate the groom’s wedding story too – they have lots to say right? Thus Dapper & Bride was born.
Ultimately, Dapper & Bride is Your Wedding Stationery Stylist. We love all things print! (Digital too!) Our first product, the Personalised Wedding Magazine is a stand out wedding favour and is the new modern and innovative way to share your big day’s events with your family and friends on the day of or after your wedding day.
I’ve got so much things to share, but one thing at a time… Lots to do around here! I do look forward to being part of your wedding journey and totally amaze your guests. If you’re ready to shop this is for you. If you’re still browsing the racks you can find out more about getting started on your publication here.
I’m always up for a chat, so please feel free to drop me a line or give me a call if you have any questions or want to know more about Dapper & Bride.
