Once you've chosen your own dress, you'll want to choose some fitting gowns for your bridesmaids. Bridesmaid dress shopping can be tricky but try taking the following factors into consideration to have less stress and more success during the dress buying process. The style of your own wedding gown, your wedding theme and the colour palette that you've chosen all play a part in choosing the perfect dress style for your bride tribe.
You won't often read an engagement story like this one! Mother and daughter duo - Fiona and Ariana, enjoyed a double celebration when they both got engaged to their partners, Peter and Daithi, last September! Plenty of parties, planning and preparations have ensued for the two couples since then!
Claudie Pierlot has created 'Modern Ceremony' to take the hard work out of dressing for ceremonies. This collection is a wardrobe with a fresh and romantic feel that will dress both the bride and her guests.

CluedUpp is the exciting detective game that's just like a giant, outdoor version of the board game Cluedo - and it's happening in Cork on the 8 June 2019!
The Cork version of the game is called Sneaky Finders and is set in the fictitious town of Millingham. Your team of detectives will be tasked with cracking the case as you stalk the streets, tracking down virtual witnesses and eliminating suspects.

Dare to go bold on your wedding day with a cheeky red lip!
Every bride wants to be unique in her own way and if you wish to do this with a dash of colour, maybe a red lip is the way for you...but what red to wear? You want it to last the day and also not rub off or smudge.

There are lots of reasons as to why Lisbon has become my favourite city and it’s not simply because of its exterior beauty. A thriving community lives in the city centre which feeds into the heartbeat and provides its magic. Just off the main through fares you’ll find narrow residential streets, tiny shops and modest cafes which all serve the local residents.
Lisbon is an inclusive city. The locals are genuine, friendly and polite and in almost all restaurants, bars and shops people will do their best to communicate with you.
Lisbon is an exceptional venue for your wedding and mine wasn’t just a wedding day, it was a ‘wedding experience’ born out of my own and my wife’s love for Lisbon and wanting our family and friends to share all that love with us.
The districts within the city are quite different and I’ll explain them to you so that you and your guests get the most out of your wedding experience too.
