More and more couples think outside the box when it comes to their special day. The questions are: “What is important? What can be left out?” and even “Can we DIY something?” Above all when planning a wedding stay calm and do everything step by step.
Plan your wedding venue and make sure you enquire early so that it is available on your planned date. Everything is about management well in advance of the date. Planning can take anywhere between 1-3 years for some couples. No matter what happens Don’t Panic!

What else & travelling in Cork
Cork is not only a destination for many outside visitors but also for many Irish people. The Irish Times describes that expats frequently return home to Cork and that it “is the equal of anywhere (beautiful) we’ve seen”.
A trip to West Cork is highly recommended. If you have enough time you can find many little gems of hidden and untouched landscape and beaches scattered across the spectacular coastline.
Cork city has many attractions to offer. When you are there don’t forget to see the English Market and try some good local food from one of the many stalls. The Queen of England herself visited it a few years ago.
And before we forget to add this. Cork has the best Chipper in the world: KC’s. Located in Douglas it is not your traditional fast food! But make sure you come early as the cues can get very very long especially on the weekend. And when you are there why not drop into Barry’s Pub for a drink or food? Highly recommended!
