The first issue of 2022 has landed, ready to help couples kickstart their wedding plans! It has wedding venues galore and advice on everything from wedding dress shopping to how to style your ceremony setting…
Congratulations if you’ve recently got engaged! Once you’ve come down from cloud nine, we’re here to help you realise your dreams. Equally, if you’re getting married in 2022 and on a mission to sort out those last few bits and bobs, we’ve got your back.
If you’re in the former camp, the first thing you’ll want to pin down is the venue. As one of our featured brides says in our real-wedding section, organising everything else becomes much less daunting once that biggie is ticked off the list. Our fun venue-selector quiz might help you identify what type of setting suits you, while water-babies will appreciate our run-down of Scottish locations next to the sea.
If you’re a bride tying the knot this year, we hope you’ve already started shopping for the dress – but if not we’ve got advice from industry experts on what to expect when visiting boutiques and trying on gowns. For style inspiration before you go, check out our ‘Drop It Like It’s Hot’ photoshoot that highlights an array of the most gorgeous dresses and designers.
Mums of the bride and groom are singled out for special treatment (and quite right too) in our occasionwear focus. We hear from real mamas about their outfit choices and capture the season’s most striking ensembles against the impressive backdrop of Cameron House on Loch Lomond.
You’ll be spending a lot of time with your photographer on your big day, so securing one that’s on your wavelength is crucial. We meet 20 of Scotland’s finest to help you in your quest and show off some of their recent work in our real weddings section. From the two brides who had not one ceremony, but three, to the Glasgow couple whose decor plans were thrown into disarray when their car boot filled with props wouldn’t open(!), a wealth of planning tips and inspiration awaits from those who’ve done it before you.
Finally, don’t miss our advice on incorporating your dog (and other animals) as part of your wedding, while the green-minded might like to take note of our ways to make your nuptials kinder to the environment.
