Yup we like to talk about diversity and race on Nu Bride and enjoy inspiring others to be part of making the industry a more inclusive space for couples.

This page is a place to find out more about diversity in the wedding industry, common challenges faced by business owners and how to make your business more inclusive and representative for wonderful Nu Bride readers and couples who are all too often under-represented. (If you’re a nearly-wed – scroll to the bottom for a list of some of our favourite progressive and BME wedding pros. Also check out Nu Bride’s Little Red Book)

You’re 35% more likely to be outsold and out-performed by your peers if your business is not diverse *(McKinsey) and consumers are more likely to engage with a product or service if they see themselves represented.

These articles span across several years and should help you better understand some of the challenges and get you fired up to get started and make some initial changes.

The page is updated on a regular basis.

If you are ready to do more work and dig deeper to find out how you can make your business more current, more inclusive, profitable and a representative space for couples without causing offence, getting it wrong or tokenising, you can find more information on my online diversity courses here.
