We love helping couples to style their wedding and include personal and unique decorative touches.Styling and design: Blue Thistle Weddings
Our clients picked a church hall for their wedding venue but required our help to transform it
Our job as fully qualified award winning wedding planners is to help you to create the style of wedding you want at a price you can afford.
Crucial to the success of your wedding day is hiring the very best wedding suppliers to provide all the essentials. Our unique value to you as professional wedding planners lies in, not only being able to assist you to find your perfect wedding venue in Scotland, but also being able to share our excellent contacts who may otherwise be hard for you to come by. We have a valuable list of suppliers who are talented and trustworthy.
We are also often able to negotiate special prices, discounts and packages, as well as pull in any essential last minute favours at short notice, on your behalf. This goes a long way to off-setting our planning fee and to giving you peace of mind.
We find most couples have a tendency to under-estimate how long it will take to plan their wedding. There are so many essential details involved in the process, as well as the overwhelming number of options available on the internet, that making an informed decision can be very difficult. The more suppliers you engage, the more work is involved in keeping track of everything. Why not let us take that off your hands leaving you free to really enjoy planning your wedding?
We will project manage everything for you, advise and guide you on your budget, cut through the hype, coordinate all your meetings and suppliers, keep you informed and be there supporting you every single step of the way.

We can’t believe it is almost a year since our daughter Charlotte married Stuart in Perthshire.
Janice & her team and suppliers did a sterling job supporting myself & daughter through our planning stages. As complete novices, she always had a positive answer to any of our last minute doubts. We were dotted around different parts of the world in the months leading up to their wedding and due to a sudden close family bereavement only 3 months before Charlotte & Stuart’s special day, we needed that support more than ever from Janice. She was ahead of the game all the time and recommendations of local suppliers were spot on. Her attention to detail suited us down to the ground and little extra touches which personalised the day.
She brought the wonderful day together as the fairytale Scottish wedding we had all wished for.

You can see one of our weddings featured as Wedding of the Week on The Scottish Wedding Directory BLOG:
The delightful John and Sandra came from London to be married in Scotland. They had a village hall vintage themed wedding which we had great fun helping them to plan. We recommended Jenni Browne for the photographs and she did a fabulous job.
We were delighted that The Scottish Wedding Directory Magazine said they loved all the little details. That's what we do best here at Blue Thistle Weddings - pay attention to the details. We set up a dessert table and drinks table for John and Sandra lending them a lot of our "props" such as drinks dispensers and cake stands, tea light holders etc and we also added lots of special finishing touches to the tables.
"All the little details. The couple and wedding planner (Blue Thistle Weddings) really went all out with a dessert table, drinks table, table decorations, and much more. Everything. "
Thank you to the Scottish Wedding Directory - it's great to be appreciated. Janice x
