    Just when I thought all of the fun of planning a destination wedding was in the past, my friend Amy, who is one of my bridesmaids, said she was getting engaged and they want to have a wedding in England or maybe Scotland. Also, I'm a bridesmaid!!!!

    They would love to do something in a castle, palace, or stately home sometime next September but are just beginning the research process. I know there are a quite a few BDW girls on the forum in the UK. Do any of you have any suggestions of where she should start to look? I know there must be tons of places to choose from, but maybe you have been to a wedding somewhere you really liked or have a perfect place in mind.

    Also, if there are any TAs on the forum who can provide some suggestions, that would be fantastic.

    Thanks!

            That is not surprising! I'll let you know if she finds anything she likes and get your opinion. Thanks!!!

              I'm a scottish bride planning a destination wedding! its soo weird to think someone is planning a destination wedding...to scotland, while we are trying to have anything but a wedding in scotland!lol

              Locations here can be really stunning, like Lodge on Loch Lomond...absolutely stunning Loch Lomond Hotels - Discover a Truly Unique Destination | Book Now at The Lodge on Loch Lomond

              There is also Mar Hall which is not too far from Glasgow Airport - I know celebrities have been known to stay here when in Scotland Welcome to Mar Hall Hotel, 5 Star Luxury in Bishopton, Glasgow

              There is also Loch Lomond Waterfront - beautiful as you'd expect from Loch Lomond http://www.loch-lomo...terfront.co.uk/

              There are many other locations in Scotland...but as people have said...your friends will need to be careful with their dates to have any chance of avoiding terrible weather...this summer has been a complete wash out...the one year we don't have a summer holiday booked as well!lol

              If you need any other help just message me....private message would probably be best...you know what this forum is like, its soo busy you loose track of threads very easily! :)
