The Scot­tish Wed­ding Show: vin­tage cars, fru-fru frocks and cham­pagne cock­tails

Sunday Herald - - SOCIETY -

Tra­di­tion is not out of reach for those with a taste for nos­tal­gia. The Scot­tish Wed­ding Show re­turned to Glas­gow yes­ter­day for two days, show­cas­ing a plethora of wed­ding ideas for cou­ples, with 300 com­pa­nies cater­ing to every wed­ding de­tail from cakes to cars and dresses.

Hosts of bridal par­ties de­scended on the venue ready for a day of brows­ing, with many busi­nesses of­fer­ing a dis­count on pur­chases made on the day. The event stages three daily bridal cat­walk shows in­clud­ing dresses for brides­maids and mother of the bride – a big draw for many of the at­ten­dees.

Brand new to the Oc­to­ber 2017 show was TV pre­sen­ter John Ama­bile’s Your Wed­ding Wows!, fea­tur­ing live tips on craft­ing the per­fect el­e­ments for the big day. A live band show­case also fea­tures, with per­form­ers on stage through­out the week­end. Other mu­si­cians, such as harpists, are on hand to of­fer mu­sic that works over the day and evening of the wed­ding.

The event space was dec­o­rated with an ar­ray of im­pres­sive wed­ding cars, no­tably a Rolls-Royce Shadow, a del­i­cate cream-coloured Volk­swa­gen cam­per van, and a “some­thing blue” vin­tage Rolls-Royce Phan­tom.

Bridal par­ties made their way from the VIP cock­tail and cham­pagne bar to sam­ple free cake and in­dulge in the buzz of book­ing their big day.

Hayleigh Grant from Stir­ling at­tended the event with her three brides­maids yes­ter­day and booked cars for her wed­ding. “The day has been great. Some­times when you’re look­ing on­line it can be­come quite over­whelm­ing, so to be able to pick up the prod­ucts and ask the ven­dors ques­tions di­rectly has been a big help to me and to­day I checked off one more thing on my list,” she said.
