Questions to ask wedding suppliers and venue managers

At the earlier stages of planning your wedding, there are certain questions you should be asking prospective suppliers, vendors and venue managers in order to make sure everything will flow smoothly on your big day. In this article we will cover some of the most important questions you should be asking and hope that this will go some way to easing any worries you may have.

Questions for Suppliers and Service Providers

Question 1: How many weddings do you cater for each year?

By asking this question you can ascertain how experienced this particular supplier is. Don’t be afraid to probe by asking how long they have been in business either or by getting an idea of how many staff or freelancers they have on their team.

Question 2: Can I see your portfolio of work?

Every wedding supplier should have a portfolio of work or photographs of weddings they have catered for in the past. Whether it’s a florist, videographer, venue or musician, they should be able to demonstrate the quality of their product or service and provide references.

Question 3: Do you offer a payment plan?

Many supplier and vendors will offer a payment plan so you can pay in instalments up to the day of the wedding. Before committing to any down-payment you should also be aware of their cancellation or refund policy.

Question 4: Are there any hidden extras?

You need to know in advance the exact amount you will be paying for the service or product provided and won’t want to be surprised with any hidden extras that you haven’t budgeted for. Ask specifically if they charge extra for travel or delays and if there are any other expenses involved. Ask for an all-inclusive price.

Question 5: Are you insured?

All professional wedding suppliers and providers will be insured to cover equipment, public liability and damage. They should also be insured to cover any accidents that happen as a result of their equipment or team.

Questions for the conference or venue manager of your Hotel

Question 1: What is included in the package price?

Many venues will throw in little extras such as table settings, accommodation for the bridal party, complimentary champagne or prosecco for the toasts and tea and sandwiches for the evening refreshments. You need to have a detailed list of everything that is included so you can budget for any extras that need to be ordered.

Question 2: Can you offer discounts for midweek weddings?

For most brides and grooms, budgeting for a wedding can bring with it lots of stress and financial worry. By opting for a midweek wedding you may be able to bring down the costs significantly.

Question 3: How many people can you comfortably cater for?

Being sure of the capability of your chosen venue is extremely important and you will want to know that they can comfortably accommodate all of your guests. Ask about numbers for previous weddings they have catered for and references.

Question 4: Will you assist other vendors?

This is particularly important if other vendors require access to power points, water supply or need space for a particular service. It is imperative that your chosen venue is willing to work happily with the other service providers at your wedding.

Question 5: Are there any restrictions we need to be aware of?

This question is always worth asking to ascertain whether there may be any unforeseen restrictions. Available parking, bar opening hours, check out and check in times etc. are all important information to have in advance.

Get in touch with Eamon here at Drangan Video to ask as many questions as you would like about hiring a wedding videographer Eamon and his team are always on hand to help and offer only the most professional of services, all inclusive wedding video packages and work extremely well alongside your other chosen suppliers.

Traditional First Dance or something a little bit Different?

Over the past number of years  we have seen a huge change in the way newly-weds approach the first dance, some of these have been worthy of YouTube and Facebook fame and as a wedding videographer they  have been an absolute joy  to shoot. Whether you are getting married in Kilkenny or Tipperary, Cork or Limerick we would be absolutely honoured to be your wedding videographer  and capture this very special dance on your big day!

Tipperary Wedding Videographer Drangan Video
Tipperary Wedding Videographer Drangan Video

In this wedding blog post we are going to talk a little bit about how the landscape of the first dance has changed and how some of the most wonderful new traditions are starting to emerge from this trend.

For those of you who prefer a more traditional wedding dance, we would urge you not to feel pressured into providing an entertaining dance if this is something you are not comfortable with. It’s really not for everyone and in all circumstances the traditional first dance in the way you feel most comfortable is absolutely wonderful to watch and in our case also to record on wedding video.

We first started to notice the trend for non-traditional wedding dances emerging in Ireland about 10 years ago when YouTube videos seemed to be popping up every other day. This trend seems to have started in the US and it really wasn’t very long before brides and grooms in Tipperary, Kilkenny  and all over  the country started adding their own imaginative twists to both their first dance and the wedding ceremonies.

If you and your intended have decided that you would like to try something a little bit different for your first dance and are unsure of where to start. We would recommend looking first in your local area to see if there are any dance instructors in the locale that can give you some tips and advise you on some nifty dance moves you can do for your chosen song.

Fun Wedding Video Memories From Weddings In Tipperary
Fun Wedding Video Memories From Weddings In Tipperary

Looking for inspiration? You probably won’t go far wrong by looking through the thousands of videos available on YouTube or Vimeo and checking out some of the more varied dances others have done before you.

The very first thing you should do though is probably choose the song you would like to dance to. Then think about who you would like to involve in the routine, perhaps you would just like it to be you and your new husband or wife or maybe you would like to include the whole bridal party or individuals from the guest list?

Don’t forget to practice! Most importantly, you’re going to need to organise a rehearsal schedule with all participants and make sure everyone involved has the time to commit to learning the dance routine.

Enjoy yourself – This is the key to all of the best first dances. Enjoy the moment and only do what you and your new spouse feel comfortable with, soak up the atmosphere around you and truly immerse yourself in this very first dance as a married couple.

Here at Drangan Video we would be absolutely honoured to get your first dance on video for you to enjoy time and time again. Speak to Eamon here any time to get an idea of how a professionally shot wedding video can become an integral part of your big day. Plus, you’ll get to sit back, relax and enjoy your choreographed first dance in the comfort of your own home or with friends and family, what could be better?

In this wedding news blog we take an in dept look into the the duties of the Best Man and Maid of Honour.

Top Quality Wedding Videos Tipperary
Top Quality Wedding Videos Tipperary

This article will touch on the duties of the best man and the maid of honour on your wedding day and in the weeks and months leading up to it. If you have recently been asked by a best friend or family member to be an integral part of their wedding by being a member of the bridal party then we hope you find this blog post helpful.

Duties of the Maid of Honour

The maid of honour plays an important role in both the planning stages of the wedding and on the big day itself. Prepare yourself for a busy few months ahead and do your very best take some of the strain and stress from the bride by being at her side throughout.

  • Organising the hen night – This will fall upon the maid of honour and the bridesmaids to organise, so make sure you plan a night that includes all of the brides favourite things. It may be tempting to initially choose activities or destinations that you yourself would like, so it’s important to ensure that you are giving the bride a night that is just perfect for her. After all she will only ever have one hen night!
  • Direct the bridesmaids – On the big day it will be your job to organise the bridesmaids, make sure they’re all positioned where they’re meant to be and address any issues that may arise.
  • Attend and organise the dress fittings: As the maid of honour it will be your duty to get the bridesmaids to all of their dress fittings and make sure they are well prepared for the day ahead. You should also attend the dress fittings with the bride and tell her just how wonderful she looks in her wedding dress of choice.
  • Help with decision-making – The bride will no doubt be overwhelmed with all the decisions that need to be made during the planning of the wedding. Try to take the weight off as much as possible by assisting her with these choices. This may include vetting suppliers, checking online reviews, ordering samples, visiting wedding fairs etc.
  • Other Duties:
  • Mingle with the guests
  • Keep an eye on the Bride and make sure she has everything she needs on the big day
  • Prepare a wedding emergency kit

Duties of the Best Man

The best man is the driving force behind every great wedding and does so much more than many guests will realise. In the lead up to the big day and on the day itself, you are going to be busy, but it will be worth every minute of it to see the smile on your best friends face when his bride walks down that aisle.

 

  • Organise the stag night. The planning of this night comes down to you and the other members of the groom’s party. You should also consult with any other guests who will be attending to ensure you are truly delivering a night that everyone will enjoy.
  • Write your speech. This is the part you will probably find the most daunting, however, it’s really not as scary as it seems and once you have delivered a heartfelt and entertaining speech you will no doubt feel as proud as punch. There’s a host of resources on the Internet that can assist you if you’re unsure what direction your speech should take.
  • Assist the groom and bride with choosing attire for the groom’s party. This will mean attending fittings, getting the rest of the groomsmen organised and ensuring the suits or tuxes are delivered safely and in good condition back to the rental shop the next day.
  • Assist the groom with any planning for relatives and friends. This may involve organising transport, accommodation or assisting elderly relatives and friends throughout the day.
  • On the day of the wedding you should:
  • Make sure you have the rings in a safe place
  • Organise the groomsmen
  • Have spare umbrellas in the boot of your car
  • Keep your eyes peeled for any behaviour that may upset the bride or groom and nip it in the bud (discreetly).
  • Escort and dance with the maid of honour
  • Take care of any envelopes or gifts and ensure they are delivered safely to the bridal suite.
  • Organise payment with any suppliers; get envelopes for each supplier from the groom in the days beforehand.

The Hidden Extra Wedding Costs you might be Overlooking

Drangan Video provides wedding video services across Tipperary, Kilkenny, Calow, Waterford, Limerick and many other counties in Ireland, we have a strong insight into the costs that can be associated with planning a wedding. We sometime see brides and grooms start to panic as the costs mount up and want to put your mind at ease by listing some of the hidden extras you may not be considering. Once you have these included in your budget from an early date you can be assured there will be no extra little surprises when it comes to paying for products or services on the big day.

In this article we are going to concentrate only on the costs, which may not be initially obvious when setting out your wedding budget:

Wedding Video News Kilkenny Tipperary
Wedding Video News Kilkenny Tipperary

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Chair Covers

Some venues will provide chair covers and other room décor as part of their package price; however, we have found more recently that these costs are increasingly being charged as extras to the bride and groom. Ask your venue organiser what décor is included in the room rental.

  • Corkage

When it comes to ordering wine for your guests at the wedding, you will find that different venues will offer different options. Some hotels will be happy to include wine in your package price or indeed offer you a reduced rate on their own house wines. Others will charge quite a hefty fee. When this happens you may consider sourcing your own wine. There is however in most cases a hidden extra fee with this..’Corkage’. Ask your venue what their corkage fee is and if they are willing to waive it. (If you don’t ask you don’t get!). We have seen venues charge as much as €10 per bottle on corkage so make sure you check this out as early as possible to allow for extra in your budget.

  • Bar Extension

With any wedding, you want your guests to enjoy their night right into the early hours and of course be able to partake of a few refreshments along the way. Be aware that if you are getting married on a weekday, legally the bar needs to close by 11:30. If you want your guests to enjoy another few hours of dancing but would also like to have access to a full bar, you may have to pay extra for later serving hours. In most cases a bar extension of two hours will cost €150 plus any additional staff costs.

Drangan Video Tipperary

  • Others Hidden Costs

Other hidden costs can include but are not limited to:

  • Cake Stand
  • Speech Lectern
  • Cake Cutter
  • Guest Book
  • Table Settings
  • Doormen if you want to ensure guests only at the bar extension
  • Welcome teas and coffees

 

We hope you have found the above information useful and can assure you that here at Drangan Video there are no hidden extras. We will provide you with a price upfront and in full, which will include everything in the package of your choice. Our price will also include any travel costs so whether you’re based in Tipperary, Kilkenny or elsewhere we will be more than happy to travel to your part of the country without you incurring any extra costs.

Choosing the Live Music for your Wedding

When it comes to planning the entertainment for your big day, you really can’t go wrong with live music, whether that be in the form of a band, your favourite solo performer or an ensemble of classical musicians. Live music adds a little bit of something special to the occasion and really breaks the ice between those who may be a little shy at first to get out on the dance floor.

Here at Drangan Video, we recently filmed a weddings in Tipperary and Kilkenny that featured the most amazing  wedding band and can honestly say that they always give it their all by working  hard to get everybody out on the dance floor.

Tipperary Wedding Band
Tipperary Fun Wedding Band

 

 

 

 

 

 

Johnny B and The Boogie Men   are a 4-piece wedding band from Tipperary, they are  the no 1 Tipperary Wedding Band.
They are a band with experience and energy that guarantee to have your dance floor full the whole night through. Their song selection is very wide and varied with hits from 50’s all the way up to the present day.

The band encourages audiences interaction so bring your dancing shoes!!
You know that song you love?…. we know it too.

With this in mind we thought we would share some tips with you on how best to choose the entertainment for your very big day.

 

  1. Do your research

The first port of call should of course be the Internet, where a simple search for wedding singer, wedding entertainer or wedding band in your area will throw up a wealth of available talent.

 

  1. Look for reviews

The next step, and one that can sometimes be overlooked, should be to look for reviews on your top 5 choices. You will find these online and of course through friends and family who may have attended a wedding in the past where this particular band or singer performed.

 

  1. Check out social media

Most wedding entertainers worth their salt will now have a Facebook page, YouTube channel or a Twitter account, if not all of the above. Let’s take Facebook as an example: On the bands Facebook page you should be able to find a website address, reviews from previous brides and grooms, videos of their latest performances and get an overall idea of their ‘vibe’.

Kilkenny Wedding Music

4 Try to check them out live

Once you’ve tracked down your shortlist online, you can then visit their websites or social media pages and find a list of upcoming gigs. Whether that is in a local bar or at a nearby event. Take yourself and your intended for a night out and see how well these guys perform in front of a lively crowd.

 

  1. Talk with the Band

Once you’ve seen a selection of the entertainers live and are satisfied with your preferred choice, it’s now time to talk to the band. Keep in mind that not all groups or entertainers may have availability for your chosen date so you need to have a backup choice just in case.

 

  1. Make your Booking

Now that you have everything in place and the entertainer is free on the date of your wedding, you can now go ahead and pay the deposit. Most entertainers will expect the remaining balance to be paid on the day of the wedding, so this can be a little task for your best man. A few days before the wedding, give your best man an envelope with the final payment and ask him to give this to the band on the day of the wedding.

Regardless of where you’re situated in Ireland, we are lucky enough to be blessed with a wealth of musical talent, so don’t despair if you don’t get your first choice.

 

Here at Drangan Video we would be delighted to bring even more joy to your big day by offering to video your wedding from the morning right up to and even past the first dance. Our wedding video services are available in Tipperary, Kilkenny, Waterford, Carlow, Limerick and just about every other county in Ireland, so make sure you get in touch for a no obligation quotation.

Planning Interactive Entertainment For Your Wedding Day

Drangan Video has recently been lucky enough to provide wedding videograper services for a number of weddings in Kilkenny and Tipperary. At these weddings we were able to gain some inspiration for this ‘interactive’ wedding blog post, which we hope you will enjoy.

Apart from the vows – and the brides’ dress of course – one of the most important parts of any wedding party is the entertainment. It’s the entertainment that helps you and your guests to relax, kick your shoes off and really get into the spirit of things. Over the past number of years we have seen a large shift from the traditional entertainment of just a band or a DJ and a move towards a more interactive experience. The band and DJ will always have it’s place and we would be 100% remiss to think otherwise, however, it may be worth checking out some other varieties of entertainment that will compliment the music and have your guests raving about your big day for years to come.

Whether you’re having a laid-back outdoor wedding or a traditional formal wedding, it’s a good idea to ensure your guests are entertained throughout what can be a long day (especially for the kids).

  1. Hire a Magician

A magician is fun for guests of all ages, making it a great form of entertainment to have at your wedding. Most magicians on the Irish wedding circuit are happy to perform during the reception, after the toasts are completed and in the foyer as a welcome for your guests.

For those of you who have children at your big day, a magician can be a great way to get them to gather together and relax for a bit whilst the entertainer does his thing!

Wedding Magician Tipperary Weddings

  1. Dance Lessons

Weddings and dancing go hand in hand, but why not take it a step further and offer your guests dance lessons.

Hire a dance instructor to teach your guests how to dance. It’s a great way to get your guests involved and to get everybody up on the dance floor.

Visions of line dancing, cha cha cha’s and old time waltzes will make great memories for you and your guests.

  1. Cocktail Bar & Liquor Tasting

We have seen cocktail bars now at a number of wedding venues, and they go down an absolute treat with the adults at the party. Consider hiring a professional cocktail maker or mixologist who can demonstrate and entertain those guests who want to avoid that queue at the bar. Let the adults sample some exotic liquors and consider setting up a kiddies cocktail bar with sodas, ice-creams and fruit juices, this will ensure all ages have an unforgettable experience

  1. Pick and Mix Sweet Stand

Rather than just handing out sweets to the guests or leaving parcels at their table, why not set up a pick and mix stand instead? The pick and mix sweet stand is an attraction that is sure to attract guests of all ages. Guests can help themselves and take home customised jars of goodies as a special memento of your big day.

  1. Make your Own Food Station

Whether it is crepes or hot dogs, a make your own food station can be a great way to make mealtime a bit more exciting. This could get a bit messy, so be prepared!

We’re sure there’s lots more interactive options available for weddings up and down the country and we would love to hear about any unique suggestions you may have, so please feel free to drop us a line.

Its All About Weddings In Kilkenny Laura and Tom Say Yes

Weddings in Kilkenny are at an all time high which is good news for me, I can now safely say that 80% of my wedding videos are shot throughout Kilkenny City and county. In this wedding news blog I’m delighted to be sharing highlights from the wedding Video  of Tom & Laura who were married in Foulkstown Church earlier this year.

As a Tipperary based wedding videographer I am always happy to travel over the boarder to Kilkenny and enjoy some of the fabulous wedding locations that Kilkenny has to offer, one such location is St. Josephs Church Foulkstown.

St Joseph’s Church Foulkstown, is situated on the Waterford Road, a 5min drive from Kilkenny city. The church has an old feel to it the inside of the church is plainly yet tastefully  decorated  but kept in excellent  condition. There is enough seating for  180  wedding guests, it is a very popular choice of wedding ceremony venue for weddings in Kilkenny.

Laura and Tom’s Wedding Video

My day began with a visit to Cederwood Close, in Kilkenny city to capture the fun and excitement of the bridal preps, Ross Costigan was on duty for the wedding photography, he is a very nice guy to work with and his work is amazing.
The weather was looking good just the odd passing shower, Laura’s parents had placed a  Child  Of Prague Statue in the garden to ward off any black rain clouds.
The Infant/Child of Prague is a small wax medieval statue of the  Christ child,  Copies/reproductions of this statue were at one time  found in the majority of Catholic homes around Ireland.  This little statue was called upon for help to ensure good weather for family occasions such as wedding, communions  and confirmations.

The bridal preps are the perfect start to a professional wedding video, Laura’s preps were in full swing when I arrived, this video clip captures the fun and emotion of the build up to  her special day. I tend to blend into the background when filming in the brides house which assures a perfectly natural looking wedding DVD.
The couple enjoyed a relaxing wedding ceremony in Foulkstown Church, presided   over by Fr. Dan Carroll who is a well know wedding celebrant in Kilkenny City.

Wedding Photos At Kilkenny City Library Johns Quay

Kilkenny City library is a one-storey Carnegie Library, built in 1910. The building is in a classical style with symmetrical façade.
Johns Quay is a particular favorite of mine for  shooting high quality wedding video footage,  the long-awaited new pedestrian and cycle bridge crossing the River Nore in Kilkenny  named   the ‘Lady Desart Bridge’,  crosses from Bateman Quay to John’s Quay, it is a popular location for wedding video and photo shoots standing on the bridge provides a lovely view of Kilkenny Castle.

Weddings Reception In Newpark Hotel Kilkenny

The first wedding reception was held at the Newpark Hotel in 1966 and therefore our staff are very experienced in looking after and assisting you on your most important day. The  Dunmore Suite can cater for up to 160 guests and the Glendine Suite can cater for up to 130 guests for the main wedding meal. For weddings over 180 guests both suites combine to offer you the perfect setting for a larger wedding party.
On arrival at the Newpark Laura and Tom were welcomed by Niall Dunne who is a very professional and friendly guy, in fact all the staff are fantastic to deal with, I like  covering weddings in the Newpark it is one of Kilkenny’s top  wedding reception venues.
