Only 3 days to go and Scottish Weddding Directory are starting to feel the excitement for this weekend's event. So here are Scottish Wedding Directory's 10 reasons to look forward to The Scottish Wedding Show:

1. YOU CAN WIN YOUR WEDDING DAY DECOR

We always love the star prize at The Scottish Wedding Show, and this weekend’s show is no different!

Ivory Tower Weddings are giving one lucky couple the chance to win £1,000 towards their wedding décor!

To be in with a chance, all you need to do is book your wedding date with Ivory Tower Weddings by Sunday 14th October, with the winner announced by the end of the show. More details here.

2. DISCOVER SO MUCH BRIDAL STYLE INSPO’

Partnering once again with David’s Bridal for the show, the world’s largest bridal retailer will be on hand with their selection of beautiful gowns and will be offering specialist styling advice, helping brides-to-be find their dream dress from exclusive designers such as Vera Wang and Oleg Cassini.

Not forgetting the spectacular catwalk fashion show , showcasing the best in bridal, groom and wedding party fashion, with the likes of Opus Couture and Apple Blossom Time taking centre stage. For more info on catwalk show tickets and times, click here.

 

3. THERE’S A NEW HONEYMOON VILLAGE

For the first time ever, The Scottish Wedding Show has The Weddings + Honeymoon Village, in association with Barrhead Travel. Perfect for couples looking to get married abroad, or in the midst of planning an exotic honeymoon, the leading UK holiday specialist will be on hand to turn dreams into reality.

 

4. YOU CAN TAKE A WALK IN THE FIELD OF DREAMS

A returning fave, The Field of Dreams showcase is dedicated to bridal parties looking to swap the traditional church setting for the great outdoors, with everything from rustic lanterns, glamping tents and mini prosecco vans on hand to spark inspiration.

Providing the music, the Live Band Showcase will once again be playing host to some of the country’s finest wedding bands and singers, ideal for couples looking to find the perfect entertainment to keep their guests dancing all night long.

 

5. BRUNCHING WITH YOUR BESTIES JUST GOT BETTER

Another new addition to the show, you can now indulge in the All Day Brunch. Yup, for just £15, you can get a mimosa, a variety of sweet and savoury dishes and tea or coffee.

There is no need to book – just head to the brunch area anytime between 10.30am and 3pm. More info on the brunching (including the very delish menu) can be found here.

 

6. THE COCKTAIL BAR

You can’t visit The Scottish Wedding Show without stopping at the glam Cocktail Bar. Sponsored by Manorview Hotels & Leisure Group, you can indulge in a glass of prosecco or a bespoke cocktail, made especially for Wedding Show visitors. Cheers to that!

Don’t forget, you can also book VIP tickets to take advantage of fast track entry, priority seating at the catwalk shows, a money off voucher to use in the Cocktail Bar and exclusive access to the luxurious VIP lounge, where they’ll also receive a complimentary glass of fizz. More info on VIP tickets here.

 

7. YOU WILL MEET SO MANY AMAZING SUPPLIERS

With up to 300 of the UK’s leading wedding suppliers in attendance, you’ll be able to tick so much off your wedding to-do list. Plus, many exhibitors will offer exclusive discounts at the show! You can see the full list of exhibitors here.  

8. SOME FURRY FRIENDS HAVE JOINED THE SHOW!

For the first time, the show is playing host to some fabulously furry friends, as it welcomes three adorable alpacas, Teddy, Blondie and Valentino.

Replacing the traditional horse and carriage, alpacas are the new must-have trend for weddings, with couples looking to impress their guests with the cute, cuddly animals on their big day.

 

9. THE FLOWER POWER CHARGING STATION

You loved our charging station at the last show, so we’ve brought it back for October! Pop past the SWD stand and give your phone a quick energy boost. Team SWD will be there to answer all your wedding questions and we’ll even have a gorge flower wall from Make Believe Events, the perfect backdrop for selfies!

 

10. PICK UP YOUR FREE COPY OF SWD’S LATEST ISSUE!

Not forgetting, we are giving all our brides and grooms a free copy of their brand new autumn issue. Excited to see you there!
