2018 saw the birth of something completely different in wedding events. We didn’t want to host any old shindig – it had to be totally fresh, packed with unmissable content, look spectacular, be heaps of fun and contain all the elements of Confetti that you tell us you love. And so, Confetti Live was born.
We’re so excited to officially announce that, on Sunday 27th October 2019, gorgeous bridies from all over the country will once again gather their ‘maids and mams and get their glad rags on for a gorgeous day out, filled with inspiration and fun at the stunning K Club.
This year, we’ve teamed up with our friends at Benetti Menswear to bring you an even bigger and better show.
You’ll learn from the best industry experts, get inspired for every element of your day, meet some of your favourite online peeps and dine on delicious treats – all in the beautiful surroundings of the five-star Kildare hotel. The best news? It’s only 30 minutes from Dublin city.
A ROCKIN’ FASHION SHOW
The day will kick off with a high energy, beautifully styled runway fashion show, set to the soundtrack of our live house band. It’ll feature some of the best bridal boutiques in Ireland, as well as an exclusive preview of Benetti‘s spring 2020 grooms’ and groomsmen’s collections.
Next, our Industry Expert Panel will take to the stage for an informative and fun ‘Loose Women’ style panel discussion and interactive Q&A. The line-up this year includes Sinead Baily Kelly of H&G Creations Ltd – Sinead has planned many a shindig and H&G Creations Ltd don’t just run events, they look after everything from music, art installations, floristry, catering and so much more! Next up, we have wedding photographer and expert, Jenny McCarthy – Jenny has been photographing weddings for 16 years, so it’s safe to say she knows a thing or two about them. We’ll be chatting to Mandy Walsh, Travel Counsellor, as well – Mandy has been in the travel business for over 25 years and has planned umpteen honeymoons, so she’ll be offering nearly-weds some solid advice. Natasha Comerford of The Wedding Shop is highly experienced when it comes to the world of gifting, so she will be on hand to offer couples some tips on their wedding gift list. We’ll also be hearing from the K Club’s wedding coordinator, Eilis Baselmans. Eilis has been coordinating weddings for almost three years, working with couples and helping their visions come to life. Last but by no means least, Vincent Nally from our event sponsor, Benetti. Vincent will be there to chat all-things suits for the menfolk in your life.
We’ll also serve up major inspo for your bridal beauty looks with two of Ireland’s best well-known beauty mavens, Niamh Martin (of Nima Brush) will be on bridal makeup duty and Ali Dee will be returning this year for all things bridal hair (and she might even demonstrate her ‘Oprah Hug’ again. They’ll talk us through their key pre-wedding prep steps, how to approach your hair and makeup trials, their hero products, and top makeup, beauty and hair tips – all while demoing some seriously gorgeous bridal looks.
BEEN THERE BRIDE
A second, interactive panel, our Been There Brides, will see an exciting line-up of well-known recent brides talking us through the things they wish they’d known, what they’d do differently, what they’d spend more on or ditch altogether and their best advice for future brides. The live version of an ever-popular feature in Confetti magazine will see freelance journalist and beauty guru Aisling Keenan, Irish actress Jenny Dixon, fitness guru Leanne Moore, and wedding photographer Katie Kavanagh join us for lots of laughs, and maybe some tears – hopefully, the happy kind!
NEW FOR 2019! DESIGNER SAMPLE SALE
This year’s event will see the introduction of an amazing designer bridal sample sale. The best boutiques in Ireland will be there on the day with designer bargains to be had on stunning gowns – who knows, maybe you’ll even say yes to the dress on the day!
General admission tickets will have access to the Confetti Live show and designer bridal sample sale.
Sample sale only tickets will be limited to the sample sale only and will not provide access to the show.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Confetti event without some deadly music! Nope, pretty, vanilla bridal events just aren’t our vibe. Instead, guests will be entertained by some of the best in the industry. (Dancing is essential, FYI.)
Sean Boland will ease us into the day with his silky smooth vocals during our morning reception. Not your typical crooner, Sean performs stunning renditions of Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole and Louis Armstrong, alongside a selection of smooth, jazz versions of contemporary artists and 70s/80s/90s classics. If you haven’t already had the pleasure, you’re going to adore him.
Our house band, The Electrix will rock the K Club, acting as the soundtrack to our uptempo, bridal fashion show. (It’s not like a regular fashion show, it’s a cool fashion show.) With decades of experience between them, members of The Electrix have played with huge names like Picture This, Ryan Sheridan, Gary Barlow, James Blunt and Olly Murs to name but a few. And Damian’s voice is out of this world.
Our fave gals, The Apple Blossoms are back with us this year to entertain the troops. Three of Ireland’s finest vocalists, they add vintage flair to any wedding or event and they are also the MOST FUN EVER
THE WEDDING VILLAGE
Dotted throughout the beautiful venue there’ll be some truly unique and talented wedding vendors, ready to show their wares and chat to our lovely guests. This really is part wedding fair, part live show, part big old party. And, like at any Confetti event, there will be flower walls galore, selfie stations and balloons as far as the eye can see.
LUXURY GOODIE BAG WORTH €150+
And that’s not all! Guests will be treated to an amazing goodie bag worth over €100, containing a copy of our best-selling book The Wedding Planner, a copy of Confetti and 25 Irish Weddings, beauty vouchers, gorgeous makeup, pretty products, sweet treats and lots more.
