Ireland's alternative wedding planning event!

We have big plans for 2018 …

WedFest 2018 is an alternative wedding festival, focused on celebrating the individuality of couples and highlighting the number of options for 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.

This will be the second year of the event and we are so excited to announce that WedFest 2018 will take place in not one, but TWO locations! We’ll be in The Chocolate Factory in Dublin 1 on November 4th and in the gorgeous St. Peter’s Cork on November 10th! If you know someone planning something different for their big day, our alternative wedding festival is the event for them!
