Spring Wedding Fayres:

Well that’s the 2015 spring wedding fayres just about finished. Still the odd one about but really its over until the autumn and now its down to business, that said the wedding industry is year round and isn’t really seasonal these days.

I’ve been piping at weddings in every month for the last 3 years, and whilst its true that the summer months are the most popular, there are plenty of happy couples wishing to get hitched at other times. With the relatively recent change in the law in Scotland where you can very well get married anywhere, on any day of the week by whoever you wish ( licensed of course) the whole feel surrounding the “W” word is best described as “anything is possible”.

I’m glad to say the wedding fayre is as popular as ever, even in this day and age of the internet, Facebook, Twitter and all the like with instant communication across the world, there is still a place for the humble wedding fayre where couples and families may come along and peruse and chat over what is being offered by the industries finest, and talk weddings all day long.

Of course its not just the traditional dress maker, baker, photographer, (lots of photographers it seems these days) or piper that are displaying their wares, so to speak there are the new kids on the block, sweet trolleys, table dressers, seat dressers, wishing wells, post boxes, flashing dance floors, not to mention the huge array of venue possibilities, from castles to cottages, to mountains tops and loch sides and anything else you can think off in between, there are venues and suppliers to suit all tastes.

The year “20 something” is really and truly a fantastic time to be getting married the choices are endless. Happy planning and hope I will see you soon.
