Wedding Trends for 2019

It’s January again, that time of the year where we take a look at the trends that look set to take the wedding world by storm for the next 12 months. In this blog post we’re going to take a look at the trends for 2019, whilst also giving a nod to those old trends that looks set to continue long into the future. We’d love to hear any insights you may have, so do please feel free to comment below or get in touch with Drangan Video  via social media.

Colour Trends in 2019

2019 see the continuation of the trend for pastel colours; however, we are now looking at darker more dramatic shades. Set your sights on darks purples, pinks and blues and you can be sure that you’ll be right on trend. Silvers, golds, bronzes and metallic tones are also looking likely to top the style trends for guests and bridal parties alike!

Making the Change

We’re not quite sure if we should thank Megan Markle for this or not, but the stunning bride has set the tone for things to come with a change of dress after the wedding ceremony. Realising that cost plays a huge part in this new trend, we’d recommend keeping your eyes peeled for bridal bargains on the run up to your big day. Opt for an outfit or dress that allows you to relax and enjoy some dancing later in the evening without having to worry about or be restricted by a heavy gown.

Personalised Wedding Stationary

Never before has wedding stationary been so important! The trend now seems to be pointing more than ever to personalised wedding invites with monograms designed specifically for you both, professional calligraphy and laser cut designs. Most small towns, villages and cities in Ireland will have a number of craft professionals that will be delighted to design something bespoke for your and your intended. Plus you’re supporting a local small business, what could be better than that?

The More Intimate Experience

Whilst it appears the recession in Ireland is well and truly over (for now), Brides and Grooms have learned from the past decade of austerity and have taken stock of what is most important for their wedding day. Gone are the days of large extravagant weddings with three or four hundred guests, we now look more to the people who are most important in our lives and put them centre stage. Large weddings are great fun, but when the costs run too high it can be hard to justify any resulting debt!

Catering with a Difference

Looking for something different for your wedding? Why not look to the mobile catering trend that continues to grow throughout Ireland? More and more we are seeing Brides and Grooms employ the services of outside catering companies, burger vans, burrito bars, ice-cream vendors and mixologists! If you fancy a change from the traditional sit down dinner, have a look at some of your local mobile catering service providers for some incredible inspiration.

If you are planning a wedding in 2019 or 2020 and looking to hire the services of a professional wedding videographer, the team here at Drangan Video would love to hear from you. We are happy to travel anywhere in Ireland and will always work closely with you to provide you a service that will last you a lifetime.

The Newpark Hotel, Kilkenny

The luxurious 4* Newpark Hotel is situated on the outskirts of Kilkenny City on over 30 acres of scenic parkland. Their award winning gardens are the perfect backdrop for any occasion, but really add something special to a wedding ceremony or reception. When it came to shooting our wedding video, the staff couldn’t be more accommodating and went out of their way to ensure there was ample opportunity and space for us to work our magic. The hotel offers a choice of suites and can cater for weddings of all sizes up to 320 seated guests. The main ballroom has it’s own private garden which is ideal for weddings in the mid-summer and works perfectly for those who wish to extend the celebrations to the outdoors.

On our last visit to the Newpark Hotel, our bride and groom could not have been happier with the level of service they received from the venue and we can certainly echo that sentiment.

Whether you require a venue for a reception only or wish to host your ceremony and celebrations all in one place, the Newpark Hotel is without doubt a dream venue.

Newpark Hotel Kilkenny
Mount Juliet Estate, Thomastown, Co. Kilkenny

Just a short 20 minute drive from Kilkenny City, Mount Juliet Estate is probably one of the best-known names in hospitality in Ireland. For a luxury wedding with a difference, Mount Juliet is quiet often the number one choice for our fabulous brides and grooms.

Mount Juliet caters for wedding receptions, civil ceremonies and civil partnerships and is without doubt one of the most luxurious wedding venues in the country. On our last visit to Mount Juliet, our bride and groom had booked the Manor House in which to host their ceremony and celebrations. This venue provided us with the most perfect backdrop for filming their wedding video and meant that the couple and their guests had the exclusive use of the venue. What more could you ask for?

• Indoor and outdoor ceremonies catered for.
• Exclusive Manor House hire.
• 1,500 acres of parkland for you and your guests to explore.
• Two unique venues to choose from.
• Michelin star dining experience.

Wedding Fashion for Guests in 2016

Here at Drangan Video, we have had the pleasure of witnessing a plethora of weddings in Tipperary and across the country. It goes without saying that the fashion focus is most firmly on the bride and her groom, however, we love to see the guests decked out in all their finery, which no doubt adds to the sense of occasion for all.

We are sure that if you’re attending a wedding or two in 2016, you’ll want to be looking your best. With this in mind we have put together a blog post detailing 2016’s most discernable fashion trends and we hope you find something that catches your eye.

The Midi Dress

Midi (mid length) dresses have been popular for the past 2-3 years and it looks like the trend is set to continue for 2016. A midi dress is a dress that falls just on or below the knee. This style is an elegant length, and offers a certain versatility that full-length gowns do not. You can be guaranteed that a chic midi dress won’t sit at the back of your wardrobe awaiting the next wedding invite, as it is just perfect for all occasions!

White Shirts

White shirts with black pants featured prominently in many 2016 fashion shows from world renowned designers such as Fendi, Vera Wang and Phillip Lim, meaning this look is set to be a popular sight this year. Pair a crisp white shirt, with a pair of sleek black trousers, for a chic, classic outfit that will suit all weddings. This outfit is particularly great for women who may not feel comfortable wearing a dress and is just perfect for cold weather weddings.

Billowy Tops

Billowy tops also featured extensively on runways for 2016. Billowy tops are loose fitting enough to keep you comfortable during whole wedding, but trendy enough to still look chic and stylish. These undulating tops when worn with a pair of fitted trousers or leggings create an outfit that is perfect for all weddings.

Pleated Pieces

Pleated skirts and dresses have featured in shows from world-famous designers, such as Gucci, Hermes, and Carolina Herrara. This would strongly indicate that pleated garments are going to be fashionable in 2016 and 2017. A pleated dress is perfect for traditional weddings, and is a great option if you are looking for something that is classically feminine. Worn with a blouse, shirt or simple vest top, the pleated skirt is unlikely to ever go out of fashion.


Ruffle detailing is appearing on garments in numerous 2016 spring / summer fashion shows, featuring some of the world’s most respected designers; Michael Kors, Miu Miu, and Roberto Cavalli. Ruffle detailing adds an elegant, stylish touch to any outfit. Whether you opt for a dress or a skirt, clothing that features ruffle detailing is ideal for casual or informal weddings.

The Slip Dress

Slinky, stylish slip dresses are very trendy this year, and many designers, such as Burberry and Celine, have featured them in their 2016 collections. Slip dresses are incredibly feminine, and can be layered with other well thought pieces such as blazers and knitted boleros to create a number of wedding appropriate outfits.

We hope that these fashion tips and trends will inspire you when shopping for a wedding outfit in the next few months, and we would particularly love to hear from you if you can recommend any up and coming Irish designers.

If you or someone you know and love is searching for a professional wedding videographer in Tipperary or any place in ireland please don’t hesitate to contact Eamon here at Drangan  any time, we will be happy to provide you with assistance in any way we can.
