New York City wedding in Glasgow (15)

Alison and Gary love New York City, so it was the obvious theme for their August wedding in Glasgow. “The theme was a low key and chilled-out New York wedding”, said the bride. “The colour scheme was based upon the iconic NYC Yellow Cabs.”

“We had been engaged for six and a half years when we finally got married and although we wanted to get married quicker, our love of travelling to New York every year put a hold on tying the knot. However, after attending a close friends wedding and having the time of our lives we quickly found ourselves putting a deposit down on our one and only venue choice. Rock n Roll Bride became a daily obsession and with that I discovered the best way to plan a wedding is to incorporate the things you love so we had to make it New York themed!”

The bride wore a tea length ivory dress with sparkly bodice details, custom made by Flossy & Dossy. “Going into this, I didn’t think for a second that I would meet wedding suppliers that I would get on with so well”, she explained. “My dress designer Wendy made my visits to her a total joy. She was always on hand to offer helpful advice and more importantly to have a good giggle with. Same goes for our hella awesome photographers Sarah and Darren of SD Photography. The biggest thing I took from wedding blogs and magazines was to pick a great photographer and I’m so glad we did… well, we actually got two! We had such a brilliant time with them on our wedding day, it was like hanging about with great friends.”

“Spray paint and glitter were my best friends”, she continued when I asked about any DIY projects. “If an object started its life as anything other than silver it was quickly coated in glue and sparkly silver glitter. Balloon tassels became the bain of our lives with hours spent cutting and trimming tissue paper, but to be fair, in the end, they were totally worth the effort.”

“At times, organising the wedding was very overwhelming”, Alison admitted, “I hadn’t organised a party (let alone a wedding!) before. But the best part for me was seeing it all come together on the day and realising that all the hard work had paid off. My advice for other brides and grooms would be to go with your gut. If a supplier doesn’t feel right then don’t hire them. Do what makes you both happy. Guests would rather see your personality shine than a showroom wedding!”
