Feeling Depressed  About Postponing Your Wedding

From all here at Drangan Video we are so  sorry  that  your special day has been postponed  our thoughts are with you  A wedding is one of the biggest events in a couples life it binds two people together  for life.
Organizing  a wedding is an  emotional  time with a huge build to the big day  months of planning  and clever  financial  management are just the tip of the iceberg.  Then  having to  postpone and re-plan all over again  is  very difficult  to handle.

A wedding cancellation  is a huge life changing  event for a couple, but with everything that’s going on in the world over the past few months  if all your loved ones are healthy and well, you are still very lucky and all is not lost. When you’re  trying to come to terms  with having to postpone  your big day, you might also  be feeling guilty for not appreciating  what you do have, this is typical human reaction the most important thing you can do is to accept that you are allowed to feel sad.  We understand that  our brain reacts differently to certain emotions  that  inner voice might be saying this is the worst thing that has ever happened  I cannot cope with this terrible  news  it is not what I wanted.

It is natural to feel all of those emotions  each partner may experience them at  at different times or in different ways  just because they are not showing their emotions in the way that you are, it doesn’t mean they aren’t feeling them. Men do have a tendency to hide their feelings  where as  women like  to talk about and share their emotions. The worst thing you can do is tell your partner that they are overreacting, being oversensitive or taking things out of proportion, just  listen  and accept their point of view. You don’t have to fully agree  but acknowledge your partners point of view and tell them that they make sense.

Going forward think about the bigger picture, you are both healthy and well  you will get married, it’s  not at the time you had originally planned  but you have the rest of you lives to enjoy being married. Look to the future think about about the stories you can tell your children  years from now.  How you coped as a couple,  How  you worked together as a couple to overcome the challenge.   Some couples have been keeping a lock down diary to remind them of how they  got through this time with strength and resilience, just remember that its just one postponed day in your life  and your relationship is far more meaningful that that.

Why hire a wedding videographer

Many couples struggle with the idea of having a wedding video, they see it as an unnecessary cost  here at Drangan Video we speak to couples who didn’t have a videographer on their big day, many say it’s one of their greatest mistakes

Wedding photographers are brilliant at capturing special moments from your wedding day, there are certain things they can’t capture for instance audio and movement Hiring a professional videographer will ensure that  you will  get all pictures and sound bites  from your big  day  included  in one memorable wedding film that  you will  treasure for ever.

 Wedding videos are not like the old days

Some couples think that wedding videography  means  bright lights huge cameras   in your face all day.  Today’s wedding videographers adapt a more documentary  easygoing style of filming, meaning you might not even notice them at all during the day, here at Drangan Video one of our favourite compliemenyts  is “We didn’t  see you all day”

 Video captures audio and movement

The greatest reason why you should consider hiring  a wedding videographer, video captures magical audible moments  such as your mom’s  words of advice as she helps with putting on the wedding dress,  your Dad’s  reaction to seeing you in your outfit for the first time,  or the fun and laughter during the morning preps. These are the moments that  you’ll relive everytime you look at your video long after your wedding day,  there’s also no better way to document your vow exchange. Video will also capture those important moments from the wedding reception, such as toasts and songs and not forgetting the first dance.

Video captures the non set up moments

Your photographer will get all those sometimes boring set up posed  shots, but for everything for else  you will  need a professional discreet videographer. And since there’s no posing, you won’t have to worry about been embarrassed or looking  or awkward on video, just  enjoy the fun and celebrations into the late hours

 Wedding videos are not long dull epic films

Gone are the days that  a wedding video  plays out as a boring 3 hour slideshow,  your videographer will  capture all the emotion and fun from the full day and deliver as a short  engaging three  to five-minute highlights film.  Same day edits are popular  in wedding videography, meaning your videographer will capture the best moments from the morning preps up to and including moments from the ceremony  that  be viewed at the reception, short highlight films are also shared on Instagram, Facebook, Vimeo and Youtube

Buying an Engagement Ring Online

If you or your loved are planning to pop the question over the next few months and finding it difficult to purchase the perfect engagement ring due to the closure of local jewellers, we have a guide that will assist you in making this purchase online.

Wedding Videographer Kilkenny and Tipperary

Here at Drangan Video, we have been providing wedding videography services across Tipperary, Kilkenny and just about every other county in Ireland for over 25 years. We know how important it is for our couples to celebrate in style and that starts with the all-important engagement ring. Regardless of your budget, you will find that online jewellers can offer a true wealth of choice during a time when you can’t go and browse in the traditional manner. Here are our tips for the safe purchase of your ring online.

Buying  Engagement Rings Online

Check the Security of the Website:

All websites that sell items or services online are now required to display an SSL certificate. You can check this by simply looking at the website address. If the website begins with HTTPS then you have a secure site. If it begins with the old format of HTTP then there is no security cert in place on the website.

Conduct Reputation Research:

As always, when shopping online it’s always important to ensure you are dealing with a reputable seller, this is never more important than when you’re making one of the most important purchases of your life.
• Check independent online reviews. Look through social media accounts related to the seller, check their online reviews and look for any red flags with regards to late delivery, quality or sizing.
• Check out the certification of the online store. You will want to know that any diamonds are ethically sourced and that best trading practices are adhered to.
• Make sure the store has in-depth contact details such as business address, contact phone number and email address. If the contact page does not have these details and features only a contact form, we would recommend trying another website.

Read the Small Print:

Whilst it may be a tedious job, you will really need to read through their terms and conditions to ensure you are covered in all instances. In instances where you are purchasing a custom design or a ‘made to order’ engagement ring, you may not be able to avail of EU purchasing rights, so ask as many questions as you need to feel comfortable before making a purchase.

Ask for Samples of their Work:

Whilst you may not be able to see the ring itself before you purchase, you can ask the seller to send you photographs and videos of sample products. Videos will give you a much better idea; so don’t be afraid to request them from your online store.

Make your Payment with Debit or Credit Card Only:

All major credit card and debit card providers will offer you great levels of protection on purchases made online. They also allow you to have an easily traceable line of purchase if you ever need to raise a dispute or request a refund. Do NOT pay by online transfer or with bank drafts/postal orders. Check your online statement and transactions as soon as payment has been made to ensure everything is in order.

Are you proposing this Christmas ?

Are you hoping to pop the question over the festive period? Feeling a little nervous, excited and anxious? You have absolutely nothing to worry about! Proposing to the person you love will be an amazing experience and one you and your partner will remember for the rest of your lives. If you and your partner are not big on grand gestures or uncomfortable with elaborate set-ups, do things your own way. Every proposal should be different and unique to the couple involved, there’s no need to plot some elaborate scheme when a simple ‘will you marry me’ is often the most perfect thing you can do.

For those of you who are looking for some proposal ideas, we have listed some below that may help to inspire your own unique proposal.

Wedding Video Tipperary

1. The Advent Calendar
Make an advent calendar for the love of your life; use a simple booklet or a series of gifts or notes each day for your partner to open. If you opt for daily small gifts, you can simply pop the ring into the date of your choosing, if you want them to read a special note every day, you can write your special question for the date of your choice. A wonderful surprise for that someone special in your life.

2. Hang it on the Tree
Yes, as simple as it sounds, this little idea is one of our favourites. Simply wrap the ring box in some beautiful packaging or cover it in gold or silver foil and hide it in amongst the other decorations on the tree. On the day of the proposal you can ask your partner where that decoration came from and ask them to take a closer look!

3. Christmas Morning with the Kids
If you have children, there’s nothing better than getting them involved in Mammy and Daddy’s happy day. Ask the kids to present your partner with the ring, all wrapped up with the other presents under the tree. This will be a moment that you can all remember together for the rest of your lives.

4. Christmas Dinner Proposal
If you’d like to propose on Christmas Day, try to incorporate the proposal in with your family meal. Consider hiding the ring in your partner’s dessert (make sure it’s not too well hidden, you want them to see it and not eat it!) or using the ring as a napkin holder on their place setting.

Whatever way you choose to propose to that someone special in your life, you can be assured that it’s always the question that matters most. Whether you plan it well in advance or simply pop the question at a time that feels right, hearing ‘I do’ will be all that’s needed to make your proposal a success.

For all you budding fiancés out there, we wish you nothing but happiness and our heartiest congratulations for the years ahead
