Upcoming Events

WedFest 2018 is an alternative wedding festival, focused on celebrating the individuality of couples and highlighting the number of options available to couples who don’t want to go down the entirely traditional route for their wedding. The aim of the event is to help couples to plan the day they really want, that reflects their personalities, their tastes and their story, in THEIR way.

The event will comprise exhibition areas covering different elements of wedding preparations:
Photography, Stationery, Dressing, Flowers, Male & Female Beauty/Grooming, Clothing, Jewellery, Accessories, Bands, Performers, DJs, Artists and all things edible and drinkable! There will also be performance and demonstration elements throughout the day.

This will be the second year of the event. In year one we had 30 vendors and almost 500 attendees, in The Chocolate Factory, Dublin 1. The 2018 event will be even bigger and better, with two dates and two locations – The Chocolate Factory in Dublin 1 on November 4th and St Peter’s in Cork on November 10th.

Like all good things that come in threes, our annual Holy Thursday Father Ted Quiz and Lovely Girls Competition was back for it’s third year on Thursday March 29th! The night was hosted by the one and only Patrick McDonnell, aka Eoin McLove, who made sure to make a holy show of you if you weren’t down with that sort of thing.

The quiz featured themed rounds based on trivia from the show as well as a brief interlude for our fabulous equal opportunities Lovely Girls Competition. There were prizes galore for the best dressed priest, nun or hairy baby.
It was mad Ted.

We were proud to co-host a festive fashion event with  Smallchanges Wholefoods Store, and in association with our fabulous sponsors White & Green, all about how to be more focused on ethical, sustainable and green fashion choices!

'I Heart 90s', April 29th 2016

I Heart 90s was a throwback to the decade of sketchers platforms, tamagotchis and double denim. The night was a singalong party celebrating the greatest cheesy pop hits, power ballads and rock classics from the 90s, combined with lots of throwback surprises and prizes for the best dressed spice girls and beastie boys.


  • Green Shoes Events are so efficient and thorough in their event planning. They have just the right balance of professionalism and friendliness. I was delighted to be a vendor at KBC WedFest, it was a really fun and exciting day, with a buzzing atmosphere.
  • “Had an absolute ball with my fellow Fr Ted fanatics. Night was well organised with host and thematic music for some craggy island nostalgia.”
  • "The craic was absolutely 90. The dancefloor was packed from beginning to end. Absolutely fantastic night with some brilliant surprise little touches."
  • “We had such a good time at our first Father Ted quiz with Green Shoes Events that we had to go back for a second one! Highlights included the equal-opportunities Lovely Girls Competition.”
