wedding day

Firstly, congratulations on your engagement – how EXCITING!

Now that the ring is on the finger, it is time to start planning your big day, and there is no better place to start than with the dress. 

While we accept that most people will go for a classic and traditional white gown – but what about adding a hint of vintage?

You know the tradition of "something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue"? 

Well why not incorporate your "something old" into the style of your gorgeous dress? We love that idea. 

Check out some of the most beautiful vintage-style dresses that Pinterest has to offer.

We’ve spent many nights curled up on the sofa with never-ending episodes of Say Yes to the Dress Ireland playing on the TV.

Our evenings just haven’t been the same since the last season of the show ended, but fear not, the wonderful Franc is returning to our screens very soon.

The unmissable series starts on Monday, September 17 on RTÉ2, and follows 30 brides from all over Ireland looking to find their perfect dress.  

Over 3,500 dresses from all over the world await the new group of brides-to-be and their entourages at Vows Bridal Store in Cork.

Franc and the bridal consultants; Vows Owner, Mary O’Dowling, along with Janice O’Leary, Denise O’Riordian and Ciara O’Dowling will meet brides from all over the country in search of their dream dresses.  

This five-part series has a few surprises in store including an opinionated father of the bride and a worried fiancé thrown into the mix.

One of this season’s brides Abby Ho has been searching high and low for her dream gown.

32-year-old Abby’s appointment will be a challenge. Abby is getting married in four months’ time, she’s got a budget of €500 maximum and she is joined by her five very opinionated sisters.  But the biggest challenge: before today Abby had tried over 50 wedding dresses and said no to them all.

We are so excited for the show to return to our screens. You can tune into the new episodes of Say Yes to the Dress Ireland on Monday, September 17 on RTÉ2.



It has amassed more than 465,000 views since its upload last Friday, and it's not hard to see why.

With the local church in Menlough, Co Galway as the backdrop, an entire wedding party danced with each other in front of the alter… at the behest of Fr. John O' Gorman.

Shared by Make My Day Productions on their Facebook page, the footage shows Fr. O' Gorman bring the father of the bride to his feet before leading him to the bride for an impromptu father/ daughter dance.

To the tune of Your Wedding Day By Jimmy Buckley, Rois Lydon danced with her father before her new husband, Paudie Mannion, got to his feet with Rois's mother.

With applause echoing throughout the church, the rest of the wedding party got to their feet and danced, with Fr. John O'Gorman saying: "If you can dance in a hotel you can dance in a church".

"Below is just one of the great moments from the wedding of Rois M Lydon and Paudie Mannion. Trailer to come later," read the caption of the video which has been liked more than 5,500 times so far.

Ladies, this is one to remember.


While Penneys is considered the go-to for all things festival-, summer style- and night out-related, it's not the first place you might think of to source wedding supplies.

And for your wedding night and honeymoon, there's a heap of stunning white lace and satin lingerie, starting at just €8.

Plus these sweet pillows for your first night as a married couple *swoon*

So basically, we just want it all.



Introducing the world's most generous couple!

Over the past few years, Turkey has welcomed almost two million refugees from Syria, with 4,000 alone in the Turkish city of Kilis, all of whom are fed by a charity in the area. 

One bride and groom decided to share their joyful day with those who are less fortunate by inviting them to eat with them and celebrate at their wedding. 

​Fethullah Üzümcüoğlu and Esra Polat got married in a province near the Syrian border last week. Spurred on by an idea from the groom's father, they opened their big day to thousands of people in need.

Food was provided to the guests using trucks and the bride and groom were among those who helped to dish it out. Father of the groom Serhat Kilis said that he hopes others will follow suit and spend their wedding day celebrating with their Syrian brothers and sisters. 

"We thought that on such a happy day, we would share the wedding party with our Syrian brothers and sisters," he explained. 

"God willing, this will lead to others doing the same and giving food to our Syrian brothers and sisters. For us, it was an interesting wedding dinner."

Bride Esra described the whole thing as a "wonderful experience," adding, "I’m happy that we had the opportunity to share our wedding meal with the people who are in real need."


Prepare to feel all of the feels with this emotional video!

NASCAR driver Brian Scott married the love of his life, Whitney Kay recently, but he made sure he gave his vows not only to his wife-to-be, but also to his future stepdaughter, Brielle. 

Bending down to the 3-year-old, Brian says to Brielle "I promise to always hold your hand and skip with you down the street and bring comfort to your life. I vow to make you say your prayers before you eat. I promise to read you stories at night and to always tuck you in real tight. I vow to show you how a man should treat a woman in my relationship with your mother. And above all else, I vow to protect you, care for you and love you forever."

Needless to say, the special moment between father and daughter instantly brought tears to the eyes of guests (ok, fine we're in bits too!). 

To see the amazing vow to his stepdaughter, skip to 4:09, though to be fair the entire video is stunning. 

The video was shared on YouTube last year, but has gained major traction in the last few weeks, with almost a million views!



Elton John and David Furnish are officially married and have been sharing their special day with fans on Instagram. 

On Friday, Elton posted an invitation to look at some of the inside moments from their big day, and today he has been sharing snippets from their wedding. 

From the legal papers that begin the process to the ceremony itself, the newlyweds really are sharing the love! 


That's the legal bit done. Now on to the ceremony! #ShareTheLove @DavidFurnish

One photo in particular is just simply adorable as it shows the couple's youngest son, Elijah cuddling up to one of his daddy's legs snuggling a teddy bear and was taken by his older brother, Zachary. Elton (or whoever is posting on his behalf today!) captioned the sweet photo: "Zachary grabs David's iPhone and takes a photo of his brother while we exchange our vows." How cute!

Frankie Bridge has shared the first stunning photo of her wedding dress on Instagram – and we love it!

Frankie was married to footballer Wayne Bridge back in July, but has only now shared photos of their special day.

The pop star captioned the sweet photo: "What an amazing day."

The Saturdays' singer shared beautiful black and white images of her dress which is strapless as well as a stunning long veil with a headpiece.

Frankie also shared a family snap of herself, husband Wayne Bridge and their little boy Parker, which following on from the first photo, she wrote: "Made even better by this little man."

Aww, it looks like the family had a wonderful day – now where's The Saturdays group wedding shot?!



Reality TV star Olivia Palermo has given us a glimpse of her wedding day with new hubby Johannes Huebl.

The 28-year-old, who appeared in MTV show The City, married her model beau during a private ceremony in front of family and close friends in  New York.

Speaking about the day, Olivia said, “We really wanted to keep this beautiful day very private and special to us and enjoyed the whole day with our family and two friends. Bedford is such an amazing and romantic countryside”.

The bride wore a three-piece outfit by Carolina Herrera which included a cream cashmere sweater and white shorts with a full tulle skirt overlay.

The groom went for a matching Marc Anthony Hamburg suit.

What a gorgeous couple!





Marine Daniel didn’t think he’d make to his sister’s wedding day, but was able to surprise her by showing up at the last minute.

This video really brought a tear to our eye.



Ok so it’s a little cliché but still a pretty sweet way to tell the world how in love you are.

The Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco proclaimed her commitment to new hubby Ryan Sweeting with a tattoo in large Roman numerals for 12-31-13, the date of their wedding day.

So when she’s old and senile, she’ll have something to spark the memory of the happiest day of her life.

Not to be outdone, tennis pro Ryan has his wife’s name inked on his arm.

The lovebirds got engaged after only four months of dating.

“By Day 2, it was so unbelievable, I said, ‘This is it,'” Kaley told Ellen DeGeneres. “I know it looks a little crazy to some people.”
