If music be the food of love…

It can be quite intimidating the first time you go online and type in “wedding music Ireland” into the internet search bar. Bands, DJ’s, singers, string quartets and uilleann pipers. Which one do you choose, where do you start, and what on earth are uilleann pipers?

A lot of what you choose will depend on the type of wedding you want to have. A traditional wedding, a rustic country wedding or an urban hipster wedding will all require a different approach to the music, but there are a few standard boxes to tick before you decide.

If you’ve ever been a bridesmaid you’ll know it is a lot of work. Some brides — like you, we are sure — are easy to deal with. They know what they want, they don’t ask for the impossible — or the downright extravagant — and they are grateful for all your hard work. Others, let’s face it, go full-on bridezilla.

Winter weddings offer some advantages, venues are cheaper as it is “out of season”, and it is easier to find suppliers, caterers, photographers and all the other services you would need.
