So the question has been popped and the date is set. How, in 2016, are you going to have a West of Scotland wedding that seems unique to you, exciting to your guests and memorable for all the right reasons?

Money, money, money…
The first question to settle is, who is paying for it all? The days of the bank of mum and dad being the default position are thankfully over. He who pays the piper calls the tune and if you want your families to help, then expect to compromise your plans to fit in “Auntie Senga” at some table or other whether you like her or not. If however you bite the bullet and fund it yourself you can decide to do things your way entirely even if that means everyone sitting around a campfire because that was what you wanted.
