A day at the Vintage Wedding Show

This is a slightly different post for me today because I have never blogged about anything remotely wedding-ey... but I am really starting to enjoy all things wedding. And no I am not getting married, in fact I am single so if that day does ever come it is a looooooooong way off.

A few things have brought me in to the realm of weddings, one being that my gorgeous older sister is getting married in 2015 and we have been sharing a pinboard for a while creating some fab ideas for her day.  The second reason is that because I am now an Arbonne consultant (see my post with info on this here) I have decided that exhibiting at bridal fairs is a great way to promote my business, who doesn't want gorgeous skin for their wedding day?

With all this in mind at the very last minute (2 days before) I booked a stand at my first ever wedding exhibition, the Vintage Wedding show at the Cowdray Hall in Aberdeen.  I was so excited but very frantic running around trying to get everything organised at the very last minute but I think I managed to pull it together, just.

As it was a vintage wedding show I added some lovely shabby chic details to my stand like pearls, faux antique pink roses, silver tray and some fairly lights. I also borrowed a cake stand from my sister to put the makeup items on.  I was really pleased with how it looked, what do you think?

I had an absolute blast and really enjoyed doing makeovers on brides to be and talking to the other exhibitors who had amazing stands by the way. The shoes at Well Heeled Bridal Shoes were amazing and the little cake room cakes tastes yummy. Other exhibitors included; Jewellery at McCalls, Zoe Duthie Jewellery Design, Buttons 'n' Bluebelles Candy Carts, Encore dress & Vintage agency, SD Photography and Duke Wedding Photography.

I would love to know if you have been to any wedding fairs and which ones you recommend? Also let me know if you want to see more wedding based posts?
