Kicking off the new year in style, we had the most AMAZING weekend as thousands of excited engaged couples headed to Dublin’s Citywest Convention Centre to help plan their big day!
A fun-packed weekend, we had everything from fashion, photography, stationery, venues to even weddings abroad and honeymoons all under one roof! So join us as we take a look back at some of our highlights…
Our International Catwalk
Definitely one our most sought after events, our catwalk never fails to attract crowds.
Each scene included a stunning display of dresses and dancing, brought to you by the very best bridal shops, manufacturers and designers available across Ireland. With styles to suits are all sizes, we showcased bridal, groomswear, pageboy and flower girl looks, giving our visitors plenty of inspiration!
Living It Up VIP
Our VIP guests were treated to special reserved front seating right in front of the main catwalk stage!
They also enjoyed a complimentary glass of Prosecco each, delicious sweet treats and not to forget, their fabulous bumper goodie bags!
Our Best Stand Winner
This year, our exhibitors really upped their game, as many stands dressed theirs better than ever. However, we could only have one winner and that lucky exhibitor was Instaglam Photobooths, winning our certificate and a fabulous bottle of champagne!
The Cavan based exhibitor Instaglam Photobooths put so much effort into their stand and it paid off in the end by showcasing their awesome photobooth and self mirror services – congratulations!
100s of Exhibitors All Under One Roof
Over the weekend, we played host to hundreds of exhibitors who came out and displayed their work for brides and grooms to help them gather ideas for their wedding day.
On-hand to answer any questions and showcase their unique and fun services, we couldn’t have asked for better exhibitors!
The Amazing Win A €35,000 Wedding Final
And who could forget our life-changing Win a €35,000 Wedding final! 13 nervous couples took to the stage on Sunday afternoon, all hoping to be crowned the winner and walk away with our sensational wedding package! Cooper and Luke from 98FM were on stage as our fabulous hosts, as each round continued to grow more and more anticipation. Then, with a simple pop of a confetti balloon, we had our winners – congratulations to Amy Byrne and Sean Carroll!
