Scottish wedding directory
a great site to find suppliers in your area for catering, dresses, favours excreta although they cater for more conventional weddings, it is well worth a look, They also publish a magazine which is excellent for ideas usually feature a couple of real life weddings in here I have read articles about sci fi themed weddings and medieval style weddings which gave me inspiration to look at doing something different,
This site is full of ideas for your wedding you can buy everything hear from napkins to balloons. You can also look up venues, dress suppliers and they have competions every now and then as well as panning advice. You can register with the site and they will send you newsletters and allow you to shop on line they also have a store in queen street Glasgow.
Your local council wed site
Your local council web site is a great place to look as it should tell you what areas are pre approved for weddings, however you do not need to stick to the list you can get married anywhere but you may need to pay for a one off civil wedding licence for the day .This can be expensive but gives you the freedom to do what you wish but you should contact the council of where you wish to marry for advice and costs.
A great place for wedding shoes, remember you donít have to wear traditional white heals. I personally have chosen to wear a very pretty pair of sketchers I bought them off this site and was pleased with how quickly they arrived, Remember you will be wearing the shoes all day so make sure you will be comfortably especially if youíre like me and donít wear heels very often. If you do buy heals wear them around the house to break them in to avoid blisters on your wedding day some people have opted for a pair of white doc martins or for outdoor weddings white wellies
MOON MAIDEN GOTHIC GLOTHING
This site has a beautiful selection of gothic gowns, Dresses, skirts, tops and corsets.
I decided to try this site out and buy a dress for a Halloween party I decided to go for the lacuna gown which was £69.99 and made to measure which is a great price, as they are a small company they make the dresses to order they require your bust, waist, hip and height measurements .
Always e-mail them to check the cost if you want it made to measure or want any changes made.
Also make sure you ,measure correctly I had a bit of trouble with this as some sites gave different advise but by communicating through e-mail with Michael and Sarah, I was able to get this correct and was very pleased with the results. They give brilliant service with a friendly personal touch and are very quick to respond to e-mails and are happy to help with any queries.
If you are getting your wedding gown online think about making an appointment with a dress maker or alterations shop to take your measurements for you if your not to confident in doing this. I will definitely be using them in future.
