Looking for some DIY ideas or just a fun day out in preparation for the big day? There are some great wedding and craft workshops taking place across Dublin city and a few around the country too.
Built on their love of making things, each workshop is a fun filled day of tips and tricks in do-it-yourself along with nibbles and bubbly all in a pretty environment. Check the website for upcoming workshops in Kerry, Kilkenny, Galway and Cork.
Need fabric or trimming? You can always rely on Hickeys. Now they cater for crafting too and the increase in DIY has led to I store demonstrations like the recent millinery demo for hats, headpieces and fascinators. Others include card and paper craft plus sewing machine basics. Check their Facebook for the latest.
Ah I love this place. Pretend you’re on holiday when getting your nails done in their tropical surroundings that are heavy in pineapples, palm trees and flamingos. A destination for hen nights (popular too so book early!) or just a great meet up with the girls. Tropical Popical have now graduated onto teaching their skills varying in half day to 6 day courses. E-mail them for more details.
Irish wedding website OneFabDay.com present The a Glitter Studio, where the best of Ireland’s creative wedding companies come together where you can sip champagne at the Bubbly Bar, peruse gowns in the Bridal Boutique and get tips and tricks from the Weding Workshops. In their words, “it’s like Pinterest come to life”. The next one comes to Dublin this Autumn. Dates are to be confirmed.
