Let’s make this your day!

Everyone is looking for their own way to put an individual spin on their wedding day, how to step out from behind the wedding packages and make this day your own. Pinterest boards can be your best friend and your worst enemy right now; it has so many wonderful ideas, but it can be so overwhelming. Let’s break it down to what we love, what we recommend and what we know will be a hit with your guests.

Signature Gin Cocktails

First impressions matter and your guests first impressions will start from the second they walk into your arrival drinks reception. What better way to create a good first impression than creating your own signature Gin cocktail? Leading up to your wedding day you can meet with one of our amazing gin connoisseurs who will help you find the perfect flavours to complement you as a couple for an extra special personalised arrival drink for all your guests to enjoy. With Ireland’s largest gin collection of over 426 different varieties in our Gin Library, you are sure to find a blend that will wow your guests.

For The Foodies

I think the most important part of any wedding is the food, obviously. The wait in between your ceremony and your dinner can be long for your guests and during your speeches your guests can also get a little restless. However, having something for your guests to drink or munch on like a prosecco bar, bread baskets or popcorn on the tables is a wedding must for me and a great crowd pleaser. Again, food can make or break your wedding day and what is better for an after dinner treat while your guests are waiting for the band to get set-up than a popcorn bar! Kids love it, adults love it and it’s perfect for most dietary requirements meaning that your gluten free and vegan guests can enjoy this too! A popcorn bar is a fun way to put your own spin against the traditional candy carts and chocolate fountains. With flavours like chocolate orange, white chocolate & raspberry, sticky toffee & marshmallow and more, how can you say no?

Raise A Toast

I love mixing up the ideas for the favours on your day for your guests. Let’s face it, some favours are forgotten on the tables at the end of the night but let’s give something else a shot (pun fully intended). Who can say no to a round of tequila, limoncello or baby Guinness, it is something so easy to personalise your day and your guests will never forget! Whatever your theme, whatever your style, Galgorm Spa & Golf Resort have so many options to help make the day your own.
