Whether newly engaged and in search of inspiration, or nearly married and just looking for the finishing touches, the Decadence Vintage Bridal Fair is the place to go. Organiser Becky Moore says ‘the event is positively bursting at the seams with Irish wedding talent and is the best place for brides marrying in vintage style to find advice and inspiration no matter if they wish to recreate a specific era, or mix some vintage ideas with some modern. Our exhibitors specialise in tailoring their services to each individual couple allowing them to put their own unique stamp on each and every aspect of their wedding day so that it reflects their own personalities. Brides and grooms and their families travel from all over Ireland to this annual event so we carefully source vintage sellers and wedding suppliers who can bring vintage wedding day visions to life.’
