Dress shopping is a big deal regardless of how you go about it, but if you book an appointment at Isobel Florence Bridal, it could be even bigger. This is your moment – why shouldn’t you milk it a little?

“We’re the only bridal boutique covering the central belt and south of Scotland which stocks the fantastic range of Ian Stuart Bride dresses [such as Donatella, above, £POA],” explains the Dalbeattie store’s King Wong. “So, we are offering an exclusive weekend package for you to come and see these gowns (and, of course, the rest of our range) in all their glory.

“It includes a two-night break in a cottage with a hot tub, courtesy of nearby Meiklebob Holidays, welcome buffet on arrival, afternoon tea and a 1.5 hour exclusive appointment at Isobel Florence, all for £90pp based on four people sharing.

“To book, call our dedicated line on 07946 160271, or email and quote ‘bride to be weekend’. Dates are limited, so don’t delay!”

We can’t think of anything better than collapsing in a heap after a long day of decision-making in a quaint, cosy cottage. Meiklebob’s collection of ten are lovingly converted from barns and outbuildings and, as well as a hot tub, each has its own barbecue on standby for feasting at sundown. If you get bored of basking in the superlative countryside views or soaking in the tub, you can feed the farm’s resident pigs, hens, donkeys and ponies. Although we’d maybe leave that Ian Stuart masterpiece behind…
