Things are very busy here in the Alexander Residence office. As well as preparing for all the lovely guests the summer brings we’re also busy getting ready for a bridal event in St John’s Shopping Centre in Perth this weekend. Wedding Fever is all around us at this time of year with brides and their families using the apartments in far higher numbers! I do love being part of someone’s big day – it’s such a privilege.
We are often booked as a last night sleepover for brides who like the luxury of the space and privacy that the apartments offer. Long gone are the days when you left from your parents’ house – let’s be honest! Brides will book in for a couple of days away from the groom and enjoy some time with friends and family before using the apartment as the “LAST NIGHT AND GETTING READY” venue! It works so wonderfully for brides, their bridesmaids and mums!
We also find that a wedding means every member of a family arriving at once! So those loved ones who come to visit throughout the year are all looking for a bed at the same time! And if you are like me, there just aren’t enough spare rooms or extra duvets! This way, everyone is together and you can relax in your own space – book all three apartments and you’ll sleep 20!
The Pop Up Bridal Event in St John’s Shopping Centre is being organised by one of our partners, Apple Blossom Time. Jolene uses the apartments as a bridal shoot venue and we have some stunning photography of her brides on our sofas!
She will be there with sale and sample dresses which you can try on, buy and take home there and then! These are priced from £300 so you may be lucky and pick up a bargain! She’ll also be bringing along some new dresses – have a peek at her page here! http://www.appleblossomtime.com/news_Perth_Wedding_Show
As well as Apple Blossom Time you will also meet Nadia from Lia and Olive Beauty in Perth. Nadia will be chatting about make-up for brides, bridesmaids and the wider bridal party AND she'll be giving you tips on that all important last month wedding countdown - have a sneaky preview of her Beauty Bridal Blog here (http://liaandolive.wordpress.com/2013/07/19/the-blushing-bride-and-beautiful-bridesmaid/)! Join her for tasting sessions of express back massages and mini manicures.
If you are near Perth then why not come along to see us. As a Big Congratulations from us we’ll be offering all brides who sign up for our newsletter a £50 voucher for yourself or your guests to use when you book Alexander Residence.
