Ever since we started out in the bridal business five years ago, we have been secretly coveting a Scottish VOWS Awards nomination.
These are awards that celebrate and promote excellence in customer service within the Scottish wedding industry and the annual process of voting is one that all quality bridal suppliers across the country knows only too well.
The programme serves to find, reward and recognise fabulous companies striving to provide outstanding service and deliver consistently high standards of consumer experience. To ensure this is a fair process, the initial stages of the judging is carried out by real brides (and grooms! voting for their suppliers of choice.
For us, this makes the VOWS awards a really big deal! No buying your way to a fancy trophy or rounding up your aunties, grannies and best friends to make their mark. This is real brides, married in the past 12 months, casting their vote. Once the votes are in, businesses with a suitable number of nominations will be put forward to a judging panel. Its at this stage the nominees are whittled down to the last few in each category.
We are thrilled to announce, that this year, Apple Blossom Time have made that shortlist!
A spokseperson for VOWS commented, "We have been overwhelmed by the volume and calibre of entries this year and it gives us great pleasure to announce Apple Blossom Time is a Scottish VOWS Awards Nominees for 2016."
This year’s glittering and glamourous ceremony takes place on Monday 21 November at the Hilton Glasgow and we'll be there wearing very glam dresses and very large smiles. Thank you to everyone who took time to vote for us - we are thrilled to have made it this far (although have everything crossed for a trophy on the night!)
With all of our appreciation,
