How Millennials have changed the Wedding Landscape

Over the past 25 years, Drangan Video has witnessed a huge transformation in the wedding planning process and this, is in a large part down to our fantastic generation of ‘millennials’. In this blog post, I am going to share some of my own insights with you and perhaps provide some tips and tricks for those of you who may feel slightly overwhelmed with the wedding planning process.

Wedding Video Tipperary

Take your time….
If there’s one thing millennials do best it’s never rushing the announcement of their engagement and I think this really takes the pressure off couples in a significant way. In many cases the wedding planning process has already begun before the engagement announcement takes place.

Embrace online tools
Getting married in an era that has technology at its fingertips is one of the fundamental benefits of the millennial age. Wedding planning apps have made tasks so much easier for brides and grooms and are an excellent way to stay on top of your planning without the stress of visiting each supplier and sit-down meetings. Use the Internet to your advantage and cut down on costs and precious time.

Setting Budgets
Perhaps due to recession and rising prices, millennials have become accustomed to budgeting in a really meaningful way. They know that you don’t have to spend a fortune to have the wedding of your dreams and have embraced more alternative décor, catering and venue options.

Wedding Planning Tipperary

Your Best Man or Maid of Honour does not have to be Male or Female
This is perhaps one of the nicest developments I have witnessed over the past number of years. If your best friend and most trusted companion is female, does that mean you can’t have them as your best man? Absolutely not! Gender should not be the decision maker when it comes to including the most important people in your wedding party. Throw out that old rulebook and embrace the reality of your friendships, ‘Men of Honour’ and ‘Best Women’ are truly the change we have been waiting for.

Customisation
Customising a theme for your wedding to make it truly unique is a growing trend amongst millennials across Ireland and Europe. Whether you want to use a certain colour scheme throughout the ceremony and reception or go full on ‘themed’ for your big day, you can be sure that your guests will remember your wedding for all the right reasons.

Here at Drangan Video we love nothing more that capturing the special moments of every wedding, regardless of the generation you grew up in. Whether you are based in Tipperary, Kilkenny, Dublin or Donegal, the team here at Drangan Video would love to hear from you. We offer discreet wedding videography and a modern approach to capturing your big day. To learn more about the packages we offer or to see some sample videos, please do feel free to get in touch with Eamon today.

Naming the Tables at your Wedding

Over the past decade, the team here at Drangan Video have provided wedding video services to hundreds of brides and grooms across Ireland. We get to see the new trends in décor, watch some of the most amazing first dances and experience first hand the artistic ingenuity of our wonderful couples. In this article we’re going to talk about a growing trend that we think you can really have some fun with.

Wedding Videographer Tipperary

Gone are the days of simply numbering the tables at your wedding venue, more and more we are starting to see a strong trend towards naming tables… and we absolutely love it!

Think about the places, songs or movies that really hold a special place in your heart and then let your ideas flow as you begin to name your tables.

Destinations that are close to your heart:

Think of places that are special to you and your partner. Perhaps you met in a café in Dublin or holidayed in Paris, maybe your fiancé proposed to you in Rome? Tell your story through the cities and countries that shaped your relationship to date by naming your tables accordingly and perhaps providing a few lines about why this place is so special for you.

Important dates in your lives:

From the date you met to the date you became engaged and every date in between, let your guests share in your memories by naming each table after a special time in your life so far.

Movies that make you smile:

For the movie lovers out there, this is a really fun way to share your favourites with your family and friends. Whether you’re a lover of rom-coms or horror movies, this light-hearted way to name your tables will be a real icebreaker with your guests. Perhaps include some trivia about each movie to get your guests talking at the table?

Songs that make you tap your feet:

A song can trigger a thousand memories and never more so than when in the company of the people you love. Name your tables after songs that are going to appear in your set list a little later on or tunes that tell a story about your relationship.

Wedding Venues Tipperary
A book lover’s paradise:

Perhaps you and your intended are real bookworms and want to share your favourite reads with your guests? Design table name cards that mimic book covers with quotes from the happy couple in the place of critic quotes. If you are a fan of a certain book series (think Harry Potter) you should have enough books to name every table!

Quotes with meaning:

Borrow the words of your heroes by using famous quotes to name your tables. Whether you opt for witty and humorous or topical and formal is totally up to you.

The places you love to visit together:

Whether it’s your Saturday trip to the local market, a restaurant you love to eat in or your local bar, name your tables after the places you feel most comfortable.

Work with nature:

Name your tables after your favourite flowers or herbs and use this opportunity to add to your table décor. A bunch of thyme at one table, a peony at another, the room will be smelling and looking wonderful!

Have some fun with naming the tables at your wedding and get your friends and family involved to come up with some more unique ideas!

Is Wedding Insurance Worth it?

In this wedding blog post we are having a look at the idea setting  up wedding insurance,  most couples will agree  that its not the most glamorous part of wedding planning,  wedding insurance  might seem like an  unnecessary cost  but what happens if something  goes wrong on the most important day of your life, so is wedding insurance worth it ?

Wedding Video Tipperary

Over the past number of years, we have heard ‘wedding insurance’ mentioned a number of times by our wonderful brides and grooms. Some wonder if it is worth the cost, others are very grateful that they did take out a policy, because of unforeseen circumstances on the day. With this in mind we have taken an in-depth look at some of the wedding insurance policies offered in Ireland and hope you find this information useful when it comes to deciding if wedding insurance is right for you. Please note we have just researched companies that offer insurance cover for weddings taking place in Ireland, these do not cover weddings abroad.

Who provides wedding insurance in Ireland?

From our research we have found that quite a lot of mainstream insurance providers will also provide cover for weddings. However, their policies do vary massively so in our opinion it’s worth going with a dedicated wedding insurer. It’s also worth checking with your existing home insurance provider to see if they can offer you any cover and whether a discount can be offered to existing customers.

The main dedicated wedding insurance providers in Ireland appear to be:

• Weddinginsurance.ie
Irishweddinginsurance.ie
Weddingcover.ie

Mainstream providers who have also appeared in our searches:

• Sheridan.ie
Insure4less.ie
Blueinsurance.ie

How much does wedding insurance cost?

From our research we have found that wedding insurance is a once off payment ranging from €34 right up to €145. The higher the premium, the higher the maximum payment is for a cancellation on your big day.

What does the policy cover?

Most policies that we have researched will cover cancellation of venues, suppliers, gifts, personal liability, cars and transport, accidents, legal expenses and smaller items such as rings, flowers and cakes.

Optional extras are also available on most policies and these can cover marquee damage or cancellation and public liability cover.

So is it worth it?

For such a small payment, I do think taking out an insurance policy to cover all eventualities would certainly be worth it. When we think of the amount of organisation and the years of savings that go into planning a wedding, the premium prices we have found online are extremely minimal. That said, in a lot of cases, insurance cover may not be required; all hotels and venues will have their own insurance policies in place to cover all persons attending the venue. Suppliers should also have their own insurance policies which should ensure you are covered in the event of a no-show, double booking or substandard service or product.

Wedding Planning Tipperary

Our advice: Speak with each and every supplier and venue and ask them about their insurance policy, feel free to ask for something in writing if this will make you feel more comfortable. If you still feel that you need extra insurance cover after talking with your vendors, then you will find a host of Irish insurance companies that will tailor a package for your requirements.

2018 Wedding Trends

Whether you are tying the knot with your long term childhood  sweetheart, or you’ve  quite literally   bumped into each other walking down the street in Kilkenny or Tipperary  there is no doubt that your love story is  unique.  This is why  your  2018 wedding should have  its own set of unique trends that will make your wedding day stand out from the status quo

Wedding Trends In Tipperary

Here at Drangan Video we like to keep up to date with the wedding trends that are happening up and down the country. In 2018 we are in for some real treats with trends revolving around food, your guests and fantastic metallic colours.

Drangan Video has been providing wedding videography services for brides and grooms throughout Ireland for over a decade and we like to take notice of what makes every day special. With this in mind we are going to cover some trends that look set to take 2018 by storm and most likely 2019 as the trends grow and become tailored to each wedding experience.

It’s all about the guests (after the bride of course)!

2018 see’s couples concentrating on the experience their guests will have at their celebrations. The last year has seen a real emphasis on guest experience and entertainment and this is going to reach new heights in 2018. Consider singing waiters, dancers while you eat, magicians and photo booths, all provided for the entertainment of the guests. We have heard some couples talk about 1 act plays, talent shows for the kids and even movie screenings for the day after the big day. Put your thinking cap on and you’ll be surprised what trends you can add to this ever-growing list.

A Food Experience like no other

Now that everyone has access to TV programmes such as Master Chef and MKR, we tend to consider ourselves a bit more educated when it comes to gastronomy, and with this, expectations do go up! Brides and grooms up and down the country are counting on top class caterers and hotel venues to really deliver on the goods, no more meat and three veg – not that there is anything wrong with that (we are quite partial to turkey and ham). Other couples are bringing in more unusual food options for their guests, such as noodle vans and taco trucks. If you’re a food lover and you want to celebrate that with your guests, have a search for some of the most wonderful food trucks available in Ireland to make your day even more special.

Industrial Wedding Venues

In 2018 there seems to be more of an emphasis on venues that are not traditionally in use for weddings. Consider an unused (but safe) factory, a converted barn, an old schoolhouse…. The possibilities are endless! Ireland has a wealth of unusual venues to offer that you may not have considered suitable for your ceremony or reception. Have a think about you can do with the right décor and the right location.
