    Supplier report:

    Kudos Edinburgh- really lovely bridal shop who have been so helpful in helping me find my perfect dress and then storing it for free for 9 months and fitting it so it fitted like a glove! Fabulous service!

    Flossy and Dossy: The BEST dressmaker in Glasgow! Shw knew exactly what I was looking for and made my perfect bridesmaids dresses just from a description I gave her. And all at an amazingly low cost, it really helped with having 5 BMs! She also made my mums outfit from 1 photo, she is just so talented

    Victoria Bisland, our Humanist: She was so helpful in the run up to our wedding! Whether meeting for coffee or answering emails, she helped us make a really personal and meaningful ceremony which I loved! Not one bored guest !!

    GlamRDust: Gillian and Shona are fab! My bridesmaids, mum and I all felt a million dollars thanks to these girls. The odds were against us with the weather (roasting sun= flat hear and shiny faces) but every hair stayed in place and I couldne believe how wellthe makeup lasted! I will def use these girls again!

    Western House- fabulous service, fabulous location and they really helped make our day special! It ran like clockwork! Laura the coordinator on the day was fab!! So helpful!

    Angelfins wedding stationery! Really beautiful bespoke stationery! She, at no extra cost, did my stationery in all different pastel shades to complement my bridesmaids. It was so beautiful and I highly recommend her!

    Julie Lamont photography: Julie is fab and a really lovely woman! I KNOW our photos will be amazing and cant wait to see them!

    Gryffe Weddings Videography- (Angelfins husband!!)- Steven was great on the day! I totally forgot he was there, he just filmed very quietly in the background and my DVD id FAB! Ill post my highlights montage at the end of my report!

    Apollo String Trio: gorgeous music that really complemented my garden party feel that I was going for! The guests loved them and they really added something special to our day

    The Magic Renz- what a cool guy! Amazed my guests with his 'cool' magic! No tophats or rabbits in sight! Groomies friends were well impressed!

    Blue Parrot Events- lovely chair covers that looked fab!

    Aurora Wedding Band! Words cant describe the talent that pours out of these guys! From 50's soul to Take That to Daft Punk, they were AMAZING, so FAB! I want to have a big event just so I can hire them again!!!!!

    Dees Dancing! Great fun first dance lessons that helped us stop looking like prats on the dancefloor

    Ayrshire Hospice wedding favours- theit lottery tickets! One guest even won 10!! I was glad to help such a fabulous charity

    I hope I havent forgot anyone and I hope that is helpful for some people

    I was so lucky with talented friend and family. My chief Bridesmaids mum did all our flowers at cost price and they were fab! The cake was amde by friends and family and M's childhood friend was amazing as our piper!

    Congratulations! Your photos look at amazing. What a wonderful idea of having your bridesmaids all in different pastel colours. Have to say though your dress is absolutely stunning. If you don't mind, could you tell me who your dress is by? x

    Its Sweetpea by Charlotte Balbier and I bought it in Kudos Edinburgh! It was such a fun dress to wear! Kept me cool on the sweltering day we had and I didnt need to worry all day about my train! Was able to dance so easily!

    Aww, I watched with a lump in my throat and I don't even know you! How happy and beautiful you looked and fantastic dresses for your BMs! Made me very impatient though, 29th March is still ages away for me! X

    You have nothing to worry about, they are fantastic! I really recommend getting a DVD- I don't know if it's the adrenaline, but the day goes so quickly and I can't remember certain things! I just got my DVD and its so fab, a great way to remember your day!

    You looked beautiful - so refreshing to see an unusual dress like that, and the weather was perfect for wearing it!

    We had Aurora and Gryffe weddings too at our wedding and were over the moon with both
