After 2 years of staycations I think everyone is happy to move on to going abroad this year. Although this has been plagued by ques at the airport as well as lost luggage and suitcases all over Europe. Luckily for us we are just bringing some Kono cabin suitcase so we don’t actually have to check in the luggage which means that there is less risk of it being lost. If you are heading abroad then please leave a note in the comments below as we love hearing about cool holiday stories.
Don’t tell the bride has become a super successful show recently. For anyone that has not seen it a couple who are engaged €10,000 to go and plan the wedding. The only catch is that the groom to be is in charge! It makes for a pretty hilarious show and more often than not the groom ends up making a mess of things. Some of the weddings have been planned in places like the local football club or even worse in a field. There was one episode in my native Wicklow which the groom organised the wedding in a field in the middle of January!
This sort of thing obviously did not go down well and the Bridge had to wear a pair of wellington boots to her wedding! This is not as bad however as another wedding that was organised in the grooms work place. They had to wear a pair of safety shoes as the groom worked for a company called workbootsireland.ie – safety boots specialist. I think he was trying to promote the business he works for selling safety boots so fair play to him. The idea of the show is of course to have a whacky wedding but some people just take it too far! Other episodes have the hen party going to the local pottery making class whilst the stag party is on in Ibiza! Good times indeed.
In fairness some of the shoe is pretty funny and I am sure there is no permanent damage done to the relationship. It is a Channel 4 show and you can watch on Channel 4 online. Anyway give it a watch as it is a bit of a laugh. In other news it is good to be getting back to doing normal weddings again! I personally have a stag coming up in May which gives me the jitters!
With lockdown coming to an end weddings are starting to pick back up from being postponed, cancelled or called off altogether! The days of huge, super expensive weddings could be coming to a close and is that really a bad thing? Some people think not! Many wedding did go ahead in private with the 6 guest limit and to be honest that might have suited a lot of people. For sure it would have save people a lot of money!
Other people still choose to splash out on weddings with the best bands, DJ and service a hotel can offer. With so many weddings postponed slots at hotels for their most expensive weekend nights are harder to get than ever! We even came across a wedding recently in Kilkenny where the married couple to be rented gaming chairs for their guests. The groom is an avid gamer and he thought that this would be fun! I am sure it was but cheap I am not sure if that would be the case. Websites like gamingchairsireland.ie are even offering rates for weddings until the end of the autumn.
Weddings are still capped at 100 guests currently so that is a great get out of jail free card for couples who are looking to have a less expensive wedding. Others will have to put odd the wedding for another year until they can get a booking that suits them. So many businesses including wedding cars took a massive hit over the last 18 months so they will be keen to get back working again as soon as possible. Prices of venues have being going up, again this is due to the demand as there are now more weddings trying to get into new dates. Eseentially 18 months of weddings are now trying to be fitted into the next 12 months. Crazy times indeed!
The castle Leslie estate in county Monaghan, Ireland is one of the most famous wedding venues in the country.Dating back to the 1700s the castle is said to be haunted which gives an extra excitement to the wedding ceremony for both the guests and bridge and groom alike.
