    This month, we’re celebrating ten years since Personalised Favours came to be. To commemorate, we look back on the PF journey over the past decade and look forward to all the exciting things yet to come.

    Transformation story

    It was ten years ago that PF company founder and online entrepreneur, Melissa Wilkinson, began an e-Bay business in her garage. Through a whole lot of blood, sweat, tears and sacrifice, the business has been transformed from a backyard operation into a multimillion-dollar international enterprise, operating throughout the United States and Australasia. This is her story.

    Personalised Favours Founder and Joint Managing Director, Melissa Wilkinson, has two babies – one is the personalised wedding and special occasions online store she began from her second bedroom almost ten years ago as the cornerstone of her global online empire, and the other is her four-month-old daughter, Jaz.

    The Business of the Bridal Bazaar

    So what is the Bridal Bazaar? Every bride visualises her wedding day, from what she dreams to look like to the opulent or simple stylings of her gorgeous ceremony and reception.

    The Bridal Bazaar event was held in Sydney for all who dream of creating an unforgettable and unique experience for their guests and themselves. A treasure-trove full of wonderful items perfect for the fashionista, socialite and glamazon.

    Guests were able to peruse through the beautiful styled stalls from Australia's most sought-after creatives at the prestige Dockside, Cockle Bay Wharf. Undeniably the event oozed extravagance, luxury and a lavish atmosphere.

  7. Personalised Favours Inspires in Magazine

    Personalised Favours Inspires in Magazine

    We are often asking Brides where they get their inspiration from or what inspires their wedding style. With an abundance of sources out there to tickle anyone's fancy, it's no wonder Brides have such a difficult time deciding whether they like a,b or c!

    Sources such as Pinterest have come a long way with providing endless streams of wedding amazingness for women to gush over and sometimes only dream of (damn budget!) The more traditional sources of inspiration are the humble (and heavy!) wedding magazines. Still as popular as ever and always a nice companion when sipping a cup of tea in your pj's.

    Where ever you live and whatever your style, the wedding industry will cater for you and it is with our pleasure that we do so. So when it comes to looking for that beautiful Bonbonniere or that perfectly personalised invite, we are there for you waiting with open arms and ready to help you on your journey to wedding bliss.

    A fantastic source of wedding suppliers, real
