Real Life Weddings, which was successfully launched in 2004, is the sister title to the Scottish Wedding Directory and features a wide range of wedding stories from all over the country. Told from the bride and groom's perspective, Real Life Weddings were first seen in the Directory, which still carries a number of stories in each issue (in Scottish Wedding Venues magazine). These personal accounts quickly grew in popularity, until eventually it became clear that they warranted their own publication. Each story tells readers how the couple met and planned their day, taking us right through to the honeymoon.
Feedback from brides-to-be (and often mums, bridesmaids and even grooms too!) tells us that if you're involved in planning a celebration yourself, chances are you love to hear about other people's wedding experiences and all those little details that made the day unique. While producing Real Life Weddings, the editorial team strives to inspire and help readers plan their day by tapping in to advice and ideas from those who have been through the experience already. Whereas The Scottish Wedding Directory is described as a 'bride's bible' filled with practical information, Real Life Weddings magazine offers a chance to put the stresses of planning a wedding on hold for a moment - by giving you the opportunity to delve into someone else's wedding story.
