We have a complete change of pace today with this fun bride and groom. Melissa and Padraig made sure they made their day uniquely their's with Melissa in particular making some very impressive contributions to the world DIY weddings!
From the bride: We always knew our wedding would have a “rockabilly theme” because it’s what we love, we’re a little bit different. Part of making our wedding especially Padraig and I was putting my creative talents to work and so I made my dress, my hat, garter and invitations.
We decided to get married in February and our wedding took place in September so although we had actually been engaged for 7 years our planning time was relatively short. My sister was a great help in planning and made sure we knew what still needed to be done.
I would say to any bride or groom planning their wedding to use the internet to shop around where you can. There are so many options online and the only thing you need to consider is delivery time, making sure you give yourself enough.
I would also say, if you have an idea, be brave and go with it. It’s your day! Make the most of it because it really goes so fast and for us it was most important to make sure family and friends felt included. We had an amazing and memorable day.
