Here we are now   that time of year again with wedding fairs and open days taking place every weekend , if you’re recently engaged, you will looking forward to attending as many as possible.
Making time to visit wedding fairs  in the early stages of planning your wedding, is definitely worthwhile   meeting suppliers face to face is better than shopping online. Another reason to visit wedding fairs, especially  those taking  place at your chosen wedding venue,  you will get to see spaces dressed for weddings which will give you an idea of what works for you on the day

Wedding fairs can also help to save money  because many suppliers will  be offering  discounts if you book them on the spot,  do your research before you go and find out which suppliers will be there, then if there are discounts on offer on the day, you can make the most of them knowing that the supplier in question is the right for for you and your wedding.

Are you ready for your Christmas Wedding?

It’s that time of the year again when we are looking forward to working with our Christmas brides and grooms. Over the last decade we have seen a huge upsurge in couples tying the knot over the festive period and it’s become something of a tradition for us to dedicate a blog post to these seasonal ceremonies.

Christmas Weddings In Tipperary

Whether you’re opting for a church wedding, a civil ceremony or an alternative occasion to celebrate your love, there’s one thing that’s certain and that is you can never be fully prepared for all that December has to offer. As I write this blog post the sun is shining as strongly as it would in August, however there’s a chill in the air that tells us we need to wrap up extra warm before we go to film this weeks wedding videos. December is a month for all seasons, you may get sunshine, you may even get snow but you need to be prepared for all eventualities.

For those of you who are tying the knot this December and New Year, here’s a handy little checklist that will help you prepare for any last minute weather changes.

• Stock up on umbrellas – You can never have too many spare umbrellas available on your big day. Ask the best man and any willing family members to collect as many umbrellas as they can from family and friends and have them ready in the boot of a car for those who have come to the ceremony unprepared.
• Allow for extra travel time – While you may be only a ten-minute drive from the ceremony location, it’s important that you allow yourself double the travel time at least to ensure there are no lengthy delays. December weather in Ireland can bring icy roads, high winds and spot flooding so you’ll want to ensure you and your guests get to the venue without any problems.
• Keep warm – Speak to your venue about extra heating for any outdoor areas and perhaps provide some wraps, blankets and warm throws for your guests who may venture outside for a cigarette or a breath of fresh air.
• Welcome drinks – December is the perfect time of year for mulled wine, hot cider, Irish coffees and hot whiskey. Why not treat your guests to a warming drink upon arrival at your reception venue to get them in the holiday spirit.
• Provide transport – Travelling in adverse weather conditions can be a daunting task for many drivers and it may be a deciding factor on whether they can make it to your wedding ceremony. Consider hiring a mini-bus to collect and drop guests along a pre-agreed route to your venue and on to the reception if they’re in different locations. This will allow your guests to relax and enjoy the celebrations without having to worry about how they’ll get home later.

Most of the events listed above are venue open-days, where you and your partner can see the venue in all its glory. Typically these venues will be set up to give you an idea of how their rooms look like when decorated for a traditional wedding. The venues will be able to provide you with per head prices, give you an idea of availability and answer any questions you have on the day. This is particularly useful for budding brides and grooms who are yet to settle on a budget for their wedding day and will help you to put in place a financial plan.

Pop back to our blog in late January to read about new dates that have been added to the calendar from February onwards.
