2. What Can I Access?

You can view their listings (Mini-Sites) and contact them directly by means of revealing and dialling their telephone number. You will not be able to interact via the 'Make An Enquiry' button, which allows Registered Users to send a text-based message to the Supplier in question. However, Unregistered Users are nonetheless able to access our nationally-based Magazine, which contains articles offering miscellaneous tips and advice, often spotlighting other featured wedding Suppliers.

2.2 Registered Users - Those who register with The Wedding Secret are able to access The Wedding Secret's 'Bridal Tools', which offer a range of ways to organise the planning of your wedding day, and after entering the postcode location of your forthcoming wedding celebration, all Suppliers within any category selected by you will appear in a hierarchical sequence based primarily on their respective distance from that location.

3. Registering

5.3 Users may save favourite suppliers in the 'My Favourites' tool and images in the 'Scrapbook' tool. Occasionally, suppliers will no longer wish to be included on The Wedding Secret, so users with these businesses saved into their 'My Favourites' or any image which have been saved into their 'Scrapbook' originally associated by that business is likely to disappear from the tools.
