Remember why you’re getting married

Throughout your wedding planning journey, keep reminding yourself that the ultimate goal is to get married to your Other Half. You’re not setting out to put on a big performance or event, but rather to celebrate your love with your nearest and dearest. Remember that nobody will be scrutinising your wedding, they will be beaming all day as they celebrate you!


Have a Plan B for your outdoor wedding

In Ireland, you just never know if the weather is going to take a turn. You might have picked a gorgeous sunny day in the middle of summer, or maybe not. Regardless, we always recommend having a Plan B if your Plan A involves being outside for an extended period of time! One way to do this is to ask your wedding venue to have a stunning indoor option. Another way is to get a marquee!


Look and feel your best

You’ve heard the golden rule: Never try new beauty products the week before your wedding! We think it’s pretty smart to start a new beauty routine, but do it ahead of time. Get in touch with the skincare experts who will make sure that anything you put on your skin will make you look and feel your absolute best. This is a much better strategy than ordering a new product online and freaking out about what it may do to your skin.


Don’t worry about the details

If you’ve ever peeked at our real wedding features, you’ll know that brides give some incredible advice. So many of our brides say something along the lines of “Don’t worry about the details!”. But we can’t blame you for worrying about all the little things you’ve been planning for months. There is so much to think about. Our expert advice? Get a wedding coordinator who can bring together all these details so that on the day, you won’t have to think about it at all!
