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 this year's event will be even bigger and better! We’ll be in The Chocolate Factory in Dublin 1 on November 4th with a variety of quirky, non-traditional wedding suppliers, performances, demos and workshops - all included in the ticket price and on a first come, first served basis! If you know someone planning something different for their big day, our alternative wedding festival is the event for them! Early bird tickets are on sale now for just €5 and include a luxury goody bag and complimentary gin and Fever Tree tonic on arrival. Get yours for your preferred time-slot before they're gone! Tickets are available here
