So as summer kicks in and the sun begins to shine, festivals are kicking off around the country. But here’s a different kind of festival…a wedding festival!
When Melanie contacted me to tell me about this event, it sounded amazing and something different. Creative Director Melanie Dunny, who is a wedding stylist from Dandelions & Twine and Events Director Isobel Fletcher, who is a wedding planner and event management expert from Elevate Events have established The Wedding Festival together, working with Tipi Faoi na Realtai and Loughcrew House.
As weddings become more diverse and with new and alternative ideas constantly shining through, the Wedding Festival hope to help you create that unique wedding and think outside the box. Just because John and Mary down the road had something, doesn’t mean that you have to. Be unique, be different.
The Wedding Festival will be just that…a festival, with vendors, activities, vintage tea rooms, pig on a spit and entertainment both inside and outside. Tipi Faoi na Realtai who are the main exhibitor will be providing Tipis for the event as well showcasing their extensive range of Tipis and alternative decor accessories. A selection of activities that people can enjoy on the day include archery, garden games, a bouncy castle and some inflatable games. The vendors are specially selected to ensure that they provide something unique to couples. Some vendors will also have their products on sale at the event so that couples and visitors can purchase the fabulous products and produce directly at The Wedding Festival.
FREE DIY wedding workshops will take place throughout the day. These will focus on the ‘how’ part of planning a wedding. From these the bridal party can gain expert advice, tips and direction in the areas of wedding planning that couples really struggle with.
The 5 workshops are:
– DIY Floral Design
