Top Wedding Tips

Don’t stress too much about the table plan, things will change and that’s okay. Remember the two most important guests at the top table. Yourself and your partner. This day is about you two.

No question is a stupid question, always ask your wedding coordinators if the little things you want are possible. It's the best day of your life and we are here to help.

If you are having your wedding outside, always ask your wedding coordinator what the back up plan entails. As Scotland's weather is very unpredictable, we will be prepared for each season.
