The Scottish Wedding Show

On Saturday I attended The Scottish Wedding Show
In the SECC (Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre)

I'm going to be a bridesmaid for my friend Cheryl next year 
and we went to get some ideas for her big day! 

I'm furious with myself for forgetting my camera 
but I did have my trusty iphone
So I managed to get some snaps to share with you 


As soon as I saw this sign I got excited! 
The Beauty zone was full of hair stylists and makeup artists offering beauty treatments to all the brides to be.
I spotted products from MAC, NARS, Fake Bake & Dermalogica 

You were given a £5 off voucher for beauty treatments along with your ticket to the show.
Unfortunately I didn't have time to use mine though! 


Some of the most stunning things at the show were the cakes! 
How perfect would this be for a couple that got engaged in Paris <3 
The attention to detail in these were amazing!

We got to sample so many delicious cakes as well
My favourite was a gorgeous lemon and poppyseed cake YUMM!

I'm not big on traditional weddings and have never really pictured myself as a bride 
but I actually found my perfect cake


If you read my 25 Random Facts About Me TAG
Then you will know that I have a swallow tattoo 
I absolutely love them and when I seen this cake I fell in love
(I even sent a photo to Craig...Think it might have scared him slightly lol)


Probably the only fashion show I'll ever get front row at! 
We actually went to the fashion show to get ideas for bridesmaid dresses because Cheryl already has her wedding dress, but for some reason there was none which was a bit disappointing
but it was worth going to just for the male models! lol 
I got told off for taking photos during the show though so I had to put my phone away


This was a really fun car for a less traditional wedding
very patriotic! 


The blushing bride and her favourite car!

Sherbert Flying Saucer Tree!!
I was so tempted to just buy this for myself

We all had a great day at the show and definitely came away with some great ideas for the wedding! 
Are any of you planning a wedding just now?
I'm not sure what kind of wedding I would like but it certainly got me thinking

  3. Those cakes look amazing but I'd be too scared to cut the Eiffel Tower one! Love the tartan car, I'd drive that about everyday! Is it pink? It looks more pink than red.
