Win A Romantic Break in the Beautiful Dunboyne Castle Hotel
After almost a full year away, we’re delighted to be bringing you a new issue of Irish Wedding Diary, Ireland’s favourite bridal magazine for the past 25 years. Thankfully, most restrictions have been lifted and brides and grooms are looking forward to planning their big Irish Wedding. All you brides and grooms who have gone through so much stress and anxiety over the last 18 months wondering when, or if, you’ll get to celebrate your wedding, can finally look forward to your big day with confidence. After all this time of being separated from loved ones, we’re sure the return of the big Irish wedding will mean even more to your family, friends, and relations as they reunite to celebrate your big day.
Thankfully, as the country starts to re-open, you can now resume planning your special day, and we’ll be here to help you along. In this issue, you’ll find everything you need from the engagement through to the honeymoon.
We’ve once again teamed up with the Irish Professional Photographers Association to showcase the winners of the Wedding section of their annual photography awards. We’re always amazed at the beautiful images produced behind the camera by these creative professionals.
We’ve also touched base with the top international bridal brands to create a wedding dress gallery of some of the best dresses from their 2021 and 2022 collections to give you a choice of the best wedding dresses waiting for you.
You’ll also discover all the wedding suppliers you need to find a dream dress, stunning venues, award-winning photography, beauty tips for the big day, and bands to set the tune. We have a gift section with some lovely items you can put on your gift registry list – or just go out and buy them yourself as a special treat. We’ve got tips for your wedding speech, the latest google trends for hens and stags plus the most popular bridesmaids’ colours. We’ve even tackled the tricky subject of pre-nups and looked for ways that both parties can protect themselves and their assets in a manner that is fair and respects everyone.
A honeymoon is the one part of the wedding that is truly only about the couple, so we’ve put together a great selection of honeymoon ideas for you to dream about. There’s a big world out there, and we’ve got some great ideas for both local and international weddings.
We all love looking at other people’s wedding photos, and we have a re-run of some of our favourite real-life weddings for you. This will show you what an amazing event your wedding can be now that restrictions are being relaxed.
