Our May-June is out now

Ahead of Baby, Ginger, Scary and Sporty reuniting on tour, the May-June issue of Tie the Knot Scotland is dedicated to girl power

In our ‘Drama Queen’ photoshoot, captured against the glam surroundings of Bothwell Bridge Hotel, we spice up this season’s bridal looks. Think showstopping gowns featuring daring splits, plunging necklines, sumptuous fabrics and OTT sleeves, with decadent diamonds thrown in for good measure. Posh would certainly approve.

Bridesmaids take centre stage in our second fashion story, shot on location at exclusive private members’ haunt, 29 Glasgow. Expect a rainbow of colour, sassy jumpsuits and dipped hems. Clad your besties in this bunch of pretty dresses and you bet your friendship will never end. We also hunt out must-have ‘maids labels and suss out the latest trends for your awesome attendants.

Elsewhere, we champion brides doing speeches, chat to celebrants about how to go about writing personal vows and give a rundown of what you should be doing in the seven days before the wedding (clue: not repeatedly checking the weather app). We’ll have you bossin’ your to-do list in no time.

Lastly, let love lead the way by taking your planning cues from the five recently married couples that feature in our real weddings section. They each put their own unique spin on the 2 becoming 1 thing. There’s the family-oriented couple who barely bothered with any ‘traditions’ for their tiny Highland wedding; the makeup artist who called in the crème de la crème of the industry to create a jaw-droppingly beautiful day and the couple who asked their local community to donate underwear so they could make knicker bunting! Variety really is the proverbial.
