BLUSHING bride Georgia Hardringham led the way as her bridal party raced to launch the Scottish Wedding Show.

And ahead of this weekend's event, exhibitors have revealed the latest trends in the wedding industry - from edible lace cakes to 'marryoke'.

With more than 300 companies taking part, the show is a major event in the Scottish wedding calendar.

Angela Smith, the event's manager, said: "Twice a year we gather the UK's best in class exhibitors under one roof to make the SECC the ultimate one-stop-shop for brides and grooms-to-be.

"Up to 300 exhibitors will be on hand to give couples their top trends for weddings in 2014."

Held at the SECC from February 22 to 23, the show also features the more traditional bridal displays.

But it keeps up-to-date with the quirkier aspects of Scottish weddings.

Wedding planners claim that 'flip books' have taken over from the traditional wedding favours. These animated books are one of the newest trends and are becoming more and more popular at receptions.

Greg Anderson, managing director of the Blue Parrot Company, said: "A Funflip camera takes a series of frames and then prints the photos into a fun, personalised flip book, creating a great snapshot of the day for your guests to take home."

But the most popular new trend, according to organisers, is marryoke, which is now replacing the traditional wedding video.

Guests each take a line of a chosen song and perform it to camera, creating a pop video the bride and groom can keep.
