Planning for the Weather on your Wedding Day

Here at Drangan Video in Tipperary and Kilkenny, we have been providing wedding videography services to Ireland’s most loved-up couples for almost 25 years. We have seen every type of weather conceivable, quite often all on the same day, and we know that a little preparation can go a very long way!

Due to our somewhat unpredictable climate, planning for the weather is an absolute ‘must’ when it comes to preparing for your Irish wedding. Getting married in June or July does not guarantee sunshine as we all know, and you could end up with blue skies and high temperatures in November when the winds blow in the right direction. In this blog post, we are going to look at some tips that you can keep in mind when planning your big day. Remember though, that no matter what the weather, your day is going to be a day to remember, rain, sunshine, snow or ice won’t make a jot of difference when you say ‘I do’ to the one you love!

Umbrellas for guests:
Pre-pack umbrellas into family and friends cars in the days leading up to your big day. Choose playful colours, pastels or quirky designs to add a splash of colour to your day. Whether the umbrellas are used to ward off the rain or to protect your guests from the sunshine, you can be assured they’ll be appreciated by all who use them. Perhaps consider getting the umbrellas personalised with a monogram, these make great wedding favours and mementos for your guests and you can be guaranteed they’ll be used again!
Blankets and throws:
A lovely touch for the evening of your wedding when guests tend to wander outdoors, consider providing some throws and blankets to ward off the cool night air. If you’re having an outdoor or marquee wedding, these little touches will make all the difference for guests of all ages.

Sunscreen:
If it looks like it’s going to be a sunny day, consider leaving some sunscreen in the ladies and gents restrooms as part of a toiletries hamper. If you have children attending your wedding celebrations, you can be assured that their parents will welcome this little touch to keep the kiddies sunburn free for the day.

Have a plan B:
If you are planning an outdoor wedding, it’s imperative that you have a plan B for your big day. Speak with your wedding venue and vendors in advance to put a plan in place for a rainy day event. Ask your venue to have an indoor area available and ready for your guests in the event of rain. With one or two days to go until the wedding you should have a clearer idea of the forecast and can start putting plans in motion.

Warm/cool your guests with a welcome drink:
Whether you’re looking at soaring temperatures or romantic snow, a welcoming drink for your guests upon arrival can make all the difference. A winter wedding paired with mulled wine is a real treat for the senses and can help your guests warm up, relax and get ready for the celebrations. During the summer months you can opt to serve cooling cocktails and juices. It’s the little touches that make a big difference!

Drangan Video Tipperary and Kilkenny

In this article, we’re going to tell you a bit about what makes Drangan Video so special and why we believe brides and grooms choose us to capture every moment of their big day.

Since our inception in 1995, we have seen huge changes in the world of wedding videography, particularly in the technology we use and the trend towards a more subtle approach to filming your wedding. Drangan Video have adapted to and in many cases, led these changes in approach and style.

One of the best compliments we can get from any bride or groom is ‘We didn’t even know you were there’! This tells us that we have done our job correctly. Our hands-off approach means we never interfere with the running of your day and film from the sidelines without ever infringing on the celebrations. We also work extremely well with photographers, recognizing that they are limited by time and circumstance and don’t want a videographer disrupting their work in any way. We let the photographer take centre stage, never infringing on their space.

Our approach to wedding videography can be described as ‘documentary style’ and we strive to capture every moment of your day in a way that is natural, discrete and free from interruption. This approach allows us to take footage that may otherwise be overlooked – a loving glance between father and bride or special moments between those who know you best. This results in a true documentation of your wedding, allowing you to see the little things that would normally go unnoticed.

Another reason brides and grooms choose us for their wedding videography is our central location. Based in Co. Tipperary, our central location allows us to offer wedding videography in every county in Ireland. We don’t charge extra for distance travelled and always get to know the venue and area before the big day.
One of the newest additions to our wedding video offering is drone videography and photography. Our state of the art drone allows us to capture unique footage of your big day from a perspective that is absolutely breathtaking. Picture our aerial footage of your home or venue along with the guests arriving to the wedding ceremony. We are truly blessed in Ireland to enjoy such wonderful landscapes and scenery and there’s no reason why this incredible backdrop shouldn’t be featured on your beautifully crafted wedding video.

Being Social with your Wedding Video

Over the past decade we have seen a huge surge in couples sharing snippets of their wedding video online. This trend looks set to continue long into the future and we are happy to provide our brides and grooms with shorter edits that they can share online with friends and family.

Social media has had a huge impact on the way many of us live our lives and in many respects this has been incredibly positive. Let’s take a look at just some of the ways social media has influenced the way we plan and share our wedding celebrations.

Announcing the Engagement

Prior to the age of social media, when couples became engaged they would have to contact friends and family individually to share their big news. Sometimes travelling long distances or spending a fortune on long-distance calls to make sure no one had been left out! Today we can simply pop a post up on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or any of the other popular social networks that our friends and family use. To accompany the announcement of the engagement, we can share photo’s of the ring, the happy couple, even of the proposal itself! Embracing social media in this way means that you have a bit more time to enjoy the celebrations!

Save the Date
Social media, wedding websites and chat apps now mean we can contact anyone almost instantly. In many instances we have spoke to brides and grooms who have set up an ‘Event’ on Facebook to ensure friends and family are aware of the wedding date, long before invites are due to be sent. This online notification of your wedding date can save a fortune on wedding stationery costs and is a great way to give the heads up to family and friends living abroad!

Gift Register

If you and your intended have just bought a new house or have some specific gifts in mind for your wedding, you’ll find that there are a number of apps and social media sites that can greatly assist with this. Having an online gift register allows your guests to see your ideal gifts and will eliminate ‘double gifting’. Whilst gift registries are not typically common in Ireland, with couples preferring not to request gifts, there does seem to be a new trend emerging that could see this become popular in the coming years.

Sharing is Caring

Whilst not for everyone, sharing the special moments of your big day can really make a difference to those who can’t be there on the day. Whether you’re sharing with all your ‘friends’ or just a select few, a snippet of your wedding day video provided by Drangan Video will provide precious memories for guests and a special insight for those who may be living abroad. Inclusion of our drone footage can make for some pretty spectacular video!

Wedding DIY Tips and Tricks

In this blog post we are going to share some fantastic DIY wedding tips and tricks with you. Over the years that we have been providing wedding videography services, we have been blessed to see hundreds of couples exchange vows right across the country. It is because of these fabulous brides and grooms that we have gained an insight into some top DIY wedding ideas!

Outdoor Wedding In Tipperary

• DIY Entertainment for the Kiddies
If you have children sharing your big day, it’s always a nice touch to provide them with some entertainment to keep them happy and content. Instead of spending a fortune on a magician or clown, you could offer some simple DIY entertainment that the small ones will just love!
Put together some customised packs of crayons and colouring books (or print colouring pads free from online sources). These can be made extra special by adding the child’s name to the bag as a keepsake they can cherish. These are especially effective for young children and the effort will be greatly appreciated by their parents.

• Table Centrepieces
This is one of the DIY wedding items we see most in our travels around the country. DIY table décor is on the up and really adds something special to the appearance of your venue. Whether you use handpicked wild flowers from your favourite space or rope in friends and family to donate flowers from their garden, this colourful display can be a real talking point and add a touch of your personality to the venue of your choice.

• Church/Venue Décor
Whilst you may be tempted to pay your local florist to decorate the venue before your big day, it is worth looking at doing this yourself. Use flowers from your garden, ribbons and bows from local haberdasheries or craft shops and decorative items such as wooden birds and hearts to make your wedding venue shine without spending a fortune!

• Wedding Invitations
Homemade wedding invitations add a real touch of personality to your big day and can become a treasured memento for your guests. Take a trip to your local craft shop and price up the items you would need to put some personalised wedding invites together. You may be very surprised at the savings you can make!

• Wedding Favours
Wedding favours can come in all shapes and sizes and can be a brilliant icebreaker for those sharing a table at your wedding. Providing wedding favours for a large guest list can be expensive, so this is something you could absolutely consider doing yourself or with the help of friends. Opt for something simple like an organza bag filled with some of your favourite sweet treats!

If you’re hoping to incorporate some DIY elements into your wedding, we would absolutely love to hear your ideas!
