There's only one thing better than your wedding day - Having TWO wedding days!


Marry Now, Party Later

With over 75% of couples choosing to postpone their wedding receptions due to the pandemic, we are seeing a new trend known as "A Sequel Wedding."

This is the perfect option for couples who are conscious of keeping their wedding guest circle small. This may apply if your wedding venue is in the South of Ireland where heavier restrictions are still currently in place and the number of guests are limited. Couples may choose to have a small ceremony with close relatives and friends present before a bigger wedding elsewhere at a later date with extended family and friends.

The Bridal Shower

What's not to love about drawing out the celebrations for longer than one day? 
We love the creativity of our real bride Bennie's back garden hen do. Perfect for a few of your nearest and dearest, our beautiful bride made the most of the sunshine and had the most stunning bridal shower before the big day! 

Do I Re-Wear My Wedding Dress?

It all depends on what you want! When having a two part wedding, we have seen a lot of brides wear the same dress for both days but wear them totally differently! For example, on your actual wedding day you could go more formal with pinned up hair, veil and a nice bouquet. For the second part wedding party, you could let your hair down (literally speaking) and pair your dress with a fun denim jacket like our newlywed Laura who looked stunning in her wedding dress and blush jacket.

Twice the Celebrations... Twice The Fun! 

We are in love with fashion icon, Tiffany Brien's bridal look, where she paired her wedding dress with a pair of comfy white converse! It's not what you wear, it's how you wear it! If you would prefer to have a different dress altogether for the second day, we have plenty of amazing Justin Alexander, Enzoani and San Patrick dresses on sale with over 80% off their original price so you can have the best of both!

Can I Customise My Dress?

At Elody Bride, we also offer custom alterations where you can adjust the length of your dress to be shorter for the evening do for plenty of dancing! You may want to customise your dress altogether by adding a panel to the neckline, adding lace sleeves or adjust your train to give the dress a completely different look!
