2018 saw Confetti develop a new judging system. All finalists submitted Phase 1 judging information that asked business owners to take stock of their achievement and demonstrate their merit to win the category. Phase 2 judging saw independent judges and mystery shoppers touring the country visiting the best of Scotland’s wedding businesses; venues were inspected, customer service scrutinised and staff quizzed in the search to find the best of the best.
Phase 2 judging for many of the categories involved a practical. On the 16th January 2018, Confetti took over the Fake Bake Beauty Studios for the annual live Hair and Make-Up practical. The nation’s favourite beauty talents were invited to demonstrate their skill and flair to impress our specialist judges. Pamela Docherty and Jennifer Peffer of Asteria Bridal Hair and Beauty were responsible for these tough decisions.
The first of its kind, the 23rd January saw the Confetti Awards take over the Crowne Plaza Hotel Glasgow for The Confetti Showcase. Here cakes were sampled, catering taste-tested and finalists in the categories of Ceremony Entertainer and Reception Entertainer were given the chance to perform. Venue accessory suppliers, florists, personal accessory suppliers and stationers provided displays to showcase their work for members of the judging panel.
