      ‘Dream’ of all those niggly little arguments the repayments will cause you and your soul mate in the future.

        ‘Dream’ of no holidays or babbies for the next 10 years because you HAD to have a chocolate champagne fountain made of gold just your neighbours daughter did (the wh**e)

    Irish people need to calm the F*** down on the Dream weddings. Total waste of money, they all end up looking the same too.

    I blame Walt Disney for filling their heads with nonsense as children

      In fairness I think things are better the further the auld tiger gets in the rearview mirror. Also, the older people get the more they seem to cop the f**k on, i.e. pay for their own wedding rather than gouge mom and pops.

        Didn’t think that still happened, i.e. bride’s parents pay for wedding.
        Even so, a lot of people are employed in trades which service weddings…so if people want to spend money, let ’em I say.

        And if they want to borrow and spend, show ’em the small print.

    In fairness, when it comes to irresponsible lenders, credit unions are well down the list as they demand a high proportion of the loan to be offset by your CU savings account. If you are paying for a dream wedding using a CU loan then the likelihood is that you have been saving for years.

    I say this as someone in a long term relationship with a young child, I think dream weddings are a waste of time and money. What is the point of getting yourself in debt simply so you can celebrate signing a legal document? I get that it means more to people than just that, but really, at the end of the day, that is exactly what it is.

    A mate got married in Glendalough, as in, some fairy fort, can’t recall exactly… anyway, when he was at the office* declaring where he was getting married, yer one in the office was all “I need an address, a number, a street… or your not getting married there”… some consternation and a couple of phone calls later and she put down the address ‘fairy fort, Glendalough**’ and when stamping the document threw him a look as if to say “you may as well be getting married in a field ! “….


    * office – registry or whatever ya call it
    ** something to that effect :)
    I love that story… must get the details again dang it :)

    the ad is homophobic. why isnt it showing same-sex people signing up to ruin their lives?

    Best Wedding I ever attended catered for about 50 people max. Direct family and friends only.

    Many partners can be so obsessed with the “OK / NOW” Weddings that they worry themselves into pointless debt for 1 day. Why?

    Just be around the people you want to be around. People’s nose’s out of joint? F**k em, they’ll get over it.
