OH MY GOD, He finally asked! You said yes! You can wear the dress, and the veil, and the tiara! Its about to be…. about you! But where do you start? You've been pinning ideas for years, but you must see and attend to everything! Step forward, the wedding fair created to satisfy all future bride and groom’s every whim, craving or notion? Not only is this a fun filled day to have with #TeamBride, (less so for the groom - we are just warning you now ladies), but it can provide ideas, discounts as well as meeting the team of people who will help you achieve your perfect day.
Scottish Wedding Show
First and foremost, the wedding industry is huge. The Scottish wedding industry alone is worth £911million! This means wedding fairs are packed with the best of what Scotland has to offer lending itself to a whole host of ideas and inspirations for future bride and grooms. From favours to photographers, venues and not forgetting the cake samples, there will be a fantastic array of suppliers for you to discover, all there for you so you can begin creating plans your wedding day.
Opus Couture Catwalk
Secondly, the dress! A lot of bridal salons opt in to showcase their best collections on their stand and catwalk shows. Catwalks are always a good idea to grab tickets for as you are able to see the latest bridal trends as well as how dresses photograph and move on the body. On the stands are the bridal consultants that will be dealing with you from the minute you walk into the shop floor to the day you leave with your fabulous dress all steamed and perfectly fitted to you. It is SUPER important you feel a bond to these women as they will be dealing with any insecurity, stress or panic you may have, regardless of whether or not its about the dress! They have heard it all before and talking to bridal consultants on the stand gives you a good idea of not only if you like their dresses but also the vibe of the shop and if you can see yourself there. As we say in Opus it is our mission to provide a gown which makes our bride feel and 'be' the most beautiful she has ever been.
Be An Opus Bride
Buying your dress is a special experience and we would recommend book a visit to the bridal salon you choose so you can experience the experience and the service they have to offer.

Another excellent part about wedding fairs are the freebies! A lot of stands offer money off vouchers or discounted goods when you book that day - always a great idea so you can save money for the honeymoon, the speedboat arrival to your ceremony - no word of a lie this exists - or those Badgley Mischka shoes you had your eyes on instead!
