Wedding News... Read all about it!

Ever imagined your wedding making the Headlines?

Well now that can be a reality, as Momento Services are now making customized magazines and newspapers, to forever emblazon any wedding in Black & White, or Colour.

We recently had the privilege of interviewing Pravina,the Managing Director of Momento services. A fabulous lady who oozes passion about her business and products:

Hi Pravina, please tell us a bit about you and your business? 

Amit and I married in the summer of 2012, for our wedding we wanted something really unique. 
We decided to create our very own wedding newspaper to give to out to all of our guests as a sort of momento. We just asked our friends and family to send in anything they like. We ended up receiving lots of incredible stories and photos. We put them together and made a beautiful and meaningful newspaper. It was really simple and easy!

The response was phenomenal. It was so popular, that our guests told us we really have to offer this to other couples as a service. And so, Momento Services was born and things have moved on really quickly since then and as far as we are aware, we remain the only company that provides this sort of service. 

How will your products benefit a bride and groom?

 Our products are unique, personal and sentimental. They offer many benefits:
  • They are the perfect souvenir. They are genuine, authentic and worthwhile.
  • They allow people to share everything. All those small and big moments of your life which are only known by the people who love you. By sharing these stories, everyone can feel closer to the couple, and get to know them a little bit better.
  • They are the only way to involve your guests. At present, many guests don't get involved in much before the wedding day. With a newspaper, anyone at all can contribute anything they like about the couple, and make their valuable contribution part of the big day. We had mum in laws contribute recipes, and my nephew even sent in a crossword for back of the newspaper, for example!
  • On the day of the wedding or reception - it keeps people entertained and informed, because your wedding newspaper can also contain your order of service/wedding programme or schedule within it.
Please tell us about your most popular range(s)?
Most of our clients have gone for the 8 page tabloid newspaper. It's quirky and and has a stunning front cover designed by our award winning designers.

Recently we have also been seeing a surge of interest in our new mini-newspaper, which has all the wow-factor of the tabloid in a cute little version.

As we have brought out more products, such as basic wedding schedules and invitagrams - we have seen interest build up in these products as well as time goes on.

Moving beyond wedding newspapers, we also very recently started offering newspaper for businesses, community centres, charities and more.

What is the best advice you can give soon to be married couples?

Often things you spend the most time and money on and consider really important for your wedding sometimes end up less noticed or valued than you might have thought. We spent thousands on decor and still am not sure how much it was appreciated. We were told our guests were asking for more copies of the newspaper, I really wished we had printed more copies. People I barely knew from my husband's family came up to me months later saying they felt like they knew me, only through the newspaper. 

Any new products planned for 2013/14?
We have done most of our major product launches. Our products go through a lot of tweaking, especially in terms of design. We just created a free sample giveaway paper. So it's more along the lines of evolving our current set of products, rather than creating new ones.

Thank you Pravina, we really appreciate you sharing this with us!
