I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend so far! I’m so excited to be able to share a gorgeous event that is coming up in May – the very lovely Southern Lakes Wedding Show in Queenstown, not only is it held in one of the most beautiful cities in the world it’s also overflowing with the most gorgeous vendors and ideas for your upcoming wedding – I wish I could make it to the event, it sounds incredible! I had the absolute pleasure of having a chat to the very lovely Jaime who’s helping run this wonderful event. To all the gorgeous brides-to-be in and around Queenstown, this really is one event you won’t want to miss. x
What’s your favourite piece of advice for a bride and groom?
Jaime - Take some time out of your planning to relax. Wedding’s can be one of the most stressful things a couple will do in life so it’s best to have some time to your self to regain focus.
What inspired you to start the Southern Lakes Wedding Show?
Queenstown is one of the most beautiful locations in New Zealand and attracts a large number of domestic and international weddings. We wanted to take the stress out of planning by putting our top suppliers in one location to help brides and grooms get a raft of information about their Queenstown Wedding options.
If you could get married in any location where would it be?
Queenstown of course! With the gorgeous mountains and seasons Queenstown is beautiful anytime of the year.
What are you most excited about for this years Southern Lakes Wedding Show?
The Speight’s Man Zone this year will be the main point of difference for the grooms as a lot of males do not want to attend these types of things. It will be a fun “get away from it all” option with the games zone, mobile massages and of course the first Speight’s Beer is Free. The fashion show will also feature some fantastic dresses and will be organised by Tracie Patel of Monarch Model Management. A very well known lady in the fashion show arena
Oh, Autumn really is starting to settle in, the days are getting shorter, cooler and the rain has finally arrived. It’s that time of the year when you start to pull out your winter goodies from storage to set yourself up for winter, or treat yourself to something new and cozy – like a gorgeous pair of moccasin slippers, aren’t they divine!! I adore this time of the year where your bedroom becomes a little more cozy and you don’t feel bad for spending a few lazy hours curled up in bed reading a good book over the weekend while a scented candle lights the room. x
Happy Friday everyone, I hope you’re all having a wonderful end to the week.
