As most brides-to-be know, the perfect dream wedding has been planned in meticulous detail from the moment you first draped a pillow case over the back of your head, pretending it was a veil. From seating plans, flower arrangements, bridal party gifts and elaborate table settings, the only thing that’s been missing from your impending nuptials since the age of five was the groom. But now that you’ve met the man of your dreams (the lid to your pot or the dish to your spoon), planning a perfect wedding is no longer a far-off dream; it’s a fast-approaching reality.
The first part, and arguably the most important step, to planning a perfect wedding is finding the perfect wedding fair. Luckily, we host a few at our spectacular castle in Inverness (FYI, it’s a pretty perfect venue too, but we’ll get to that in a moment). Like anything in life, you need to do your homework before you set a date, book a venue and whip out your hard earned moneys. Wedding fairs are great ways to meet a range of wedding suppliers all in one place. You can compare portfolios, negotiate deals, find spectacular packages and get the inside scoop on the latest trends hitting the wedding scene.
Once you’ve got your head around wedding planners, photographers, wedding dresses and honeymoon suites, it’s time to set a date and book a venue. Remember that beautiful castle we told you about earlier? Well it makes for a pretty spectacular wedding venue. It was even ranked number one on Harper’s Bazaar’s list of the best UK wedding venues.
If a traditional Scottish wedding in a fairy-tale castle in the Highlands isn’t for you, you can say “I do” in a more intimate celebration with your nearest or dearest at our equally beautiful Cortes House. If riding up a beach aisle on a horse is more for you, that’s pretty perfect too. Because our gorgeous Perfect Sunshine Antiguan villa in the sunny Caribbean is the perfect backdrop to your dream beach wedding.
