Simply Bows and Chair Covers Real Bride Gillian!

What are your names?
Gillian & Stuart

Where did you get engaged?
We got engaged whilst on holiday in Benidorm in August 2001
When and where did you get married?
31st of August 2013 at Forbes of Kingennie Country Resort
It was the most beautiful setting and function we had seen from many others and we also didn't want to be far out from Dundee.

Did you have a colour scheme or theme?
Just gold/copper colours with a hint of orange as we are big Dundee United supporters :)
Why did you choose Simply Bows and Chair Covers?
Susan was very professional and easy to speak to.  The quality of the sashes were the best we'd seen and her bows looked great!  Price was very average in comparison to other chair cover companies as well.

Tell us about your dress!
I had a slightly fitted off white sweetheart neck dress that flared out diagonally from my hips with diamante details on the front with a average size train.  Just loooved it!
What did your bridesmaids wear?
Made to measure copper/gold two tone knee length a-line dresses with sash just under bust with same colour flower attached to one shoulder strap (square neck shape).  They were beautiful!

Who was your photographer?
 Ron Cathro.  Excellent photographer!
What special touches did you have?
We had a chocolate fountain on entrance to function as you entered.  We had gold/orange large balloon display just before entrance to function.  Confetti balloons hanging from roof, which the kids burst to produce lots of little confetti balloons on to the floor.  Tall class vases with gold/ivory roses and thistles on each table.

What did you enjoy most about your day?
I enjoyed the whole day and night, but I did enjoy the evening more, our first dance and dancing all night with everyone and my new husband, of course.
Did you go on honeymoon?
Myself and my husband went to London for a short break, but we have a family honeymoon coming up in December where we're (my 6 year old daughter as well) going to see santa in Lapland!

What is your tip for other brides to be?
Be organised, plan well in advance and don't worry so much about everything coming together on the day because it does, but then again I would say that's with planning well in advance and being organised.
