Wide Variety's Weekly Wedding Round Up
Wicklow Wedding in jeopardy after Priest takes offence to Cherry Blossoms
A wedding planner shared the tale this week on Joe Duffy’s show, Liveline.
A priest at a parish in Wicklow, demanded that all the decor in the church be removed before the wedding as “it was not a fashion show". The decor included Cherry Blossom trees, and battery operated Lanterns.

According to a member of the decor team, the priest began "pointing, shouting, screaming" at them to get rid of the items, and proclaimed he would refuse to perform the ceremony unless they were removed.
The bride contacted the show from her honeymoon to explain further:
"They had suggested a florist and I had declined the florist that they had because I had my own. The only thing we were told about the church was not to stick anything with Blu-Tac or thumbtacks to the pews, which didn't happen."
Plastic Free Wedding day? That’s how Princess Eugenie is doing it. And if it’s good enough for her… The Queen’s granddaughter told British Vogue that the home she shares with Fiance Jack Brooksbank, is anti-plastic, and their wedding day will be too.
But how realistic is it? Lindsay Miles, spoke to the BBC this week about her plastic free wedding.
“We said we want to be plastic free 'how can we do that', rather than saying, 'We want to have roses, we want to have canapes, can we do that plastic free?'"
Involving suppliers and planners from the outset was the key to success she said.
And here’s how they did it: Invites were sent via email/Facebook. Flowers were freshly picked by family and friends. They focused on local businesses with locally sourced food, and got cakes from a bakery that didn’t use plastic packaging.
When it came to drinks, the no straw option was a no brainer. They also served beer and cider on tap.
The most Irish, wedding photo has surfaced this week.
And it’s hilarious inspiration for your big day.
When Mark Stanley and Michelle O’Brien tied the knot, and knew they needed something outstanding for their wedding album and this is what they settled on.
The couple from Co. Kilkenny created a 4 tier wedding cake along with their entire wedding party.
A three tier hay stack, fitting 5 bridesmaids, 5 best men, 2 page boys, 2 flower girls, 2 sets of parents, and right on top, bride & groom.
The groom's dad drove a crane in which he lifted everyone into place.
