In April this year, my sister got engaged – in front of Cinderella’s castle in Disneyland Florida, no less! She asked me to be her chief bridesmaid during the summer and, since I wasn’t really feeling myself, I hadn’t managed to organise anything for her.
Beth and her fiance, Greig, had an engagement party in August, where we celebrated into the wee small hours alongside her other bridesmaids; Greig’s two sisters, Fiona and Kirsty, and Beth’s best friends, Natalie and Heather.
With the months flying past so quickly, we hadn’t managed to get a bridesmaid day out – until now!

As you’ll know from my blog post before, I love Cote Brasserie Glasgow for a Sunday brunch. I knew the team would be so helpful and the food (and Champagne, of course) is always amazing.
I got in touch with the brasserie who kindly had a table ready and waiting for our arrival – complete with a bottle of Champagne chilling!
I worked with Scottish favours company, Just A Wee Favour, to create little mementos for the bridesmaids and Beth and headed in early to set up. You’ll see in my video below that I was just a tad nervous!

I’m so glad we pulled it off and managed to surprise Beth. I’ve never surprised anyone before so I was scared I’d mess it up!
I must have looked nervous when I had finished decorating the table as Cote’s lovely manager even gave me a mimosa to calm my nerves!
I loved the relaxed vibes of our brunch – it was such a perfect setting to mark our first bridesmaids day out!

As I said, I worked with Just A Wee Favour on these custom made gifts.
There was a gorgeous ivory box for Beth and pink for us bridesmaids. They all had a cute little Lulu Guinness Vaseline, scent bag and heart shaped chocolate. The girls all loved them, such a nice reminder of the day.
