When brides and grooms look back on their wedding day they often wish they spent more time picking out their photographer and videographer. If it is 6 months until you’re going to say ‘I Do’ you should start looking for the right person for you and your significant other. Photographers usually have their own individual style, so it’s important that their style suits your tastes.


This is one of our favourite parts of the wedding planning process! If your venue doesn’t supply food you will need to look for a caterer to look after the menu. Make sure you have some choice in case your guests are picky eaters. It’s also important to let the caterer know if any of your wedding guests have food allergies or preferences (vegetarians etc.).


If you don’t have a regular florist, ask your married friends if they have any recommendations from their weddings. Florist’s prices usually vary a lot, so it is important that you get various quotes before you decide which florist is right for you.

Here at Marry Me Ireland we have a wide variety of exceptional celebrants who can deliver the wedding ceremony of your dreams – traditional, unique or otherwise. So get in touch today and we can start planning your special day!
