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 the 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. 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 beautiful bridesmaids’ fashion.
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 will include some familiar faces who know everything there is to know about planning a wedding.
We'll also serve up major inspo for your bridal beauty looks with Ireland’s best well-known beauty mavens, who'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.
THE SKIN NERD Q&A
Everyone’s fave skin guru, Jennifer Rock will once again join Laura on stage to chat all things bridal skin-prep. This interactive Q&A session is a great opportunity for guests to ask those all-important skincare questions. We'll chat about break-outs, avoiding wedding day cold sores, supplements and hero products. The Skin Nerdettes were also there on the day, giving mini skin consultations to guests - we’re a lucky bunch.
BEEN THERE BRIDES
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. This live version of an ever-popular feature in Confetti magazine will provide invaluable insights, lots of laughs and maybe even a few tears. This year's exciting lineup features Fair City's Jenny Dixon, singer and fitness guru Leanne Moore and beauty editor and social media star Aisling Keenan. As if that wasn't enough, we'll be announcing more exciting additions in the coming weeks - watch this space!
WHAT'S NEW? DESIGNER BRIDAL SAMPLE SALE
We're SO excited about this part!! 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.
CHIPPED NAIL AND BEAUTY BAR
The gorgeous ladies from Chipped will join us with a pop-up beauty and nail bar. They'll be treating guests to shellac manicures and eyebrow threading - how fab?! (Please note that this will be on a first-come, first-served basis.)
It wouldn't be a Confetti event without our pal, the talented Linda Byrne on hand to draw guests in all their finery. Is there a more gorgeous keepsake of the day? (And yes, she does weddings!)
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.
