What is better than getting the wedding of your dreams while doing something for charity? Well, a Galway-based businness, IdealWeddings.ie, is offering just that, helping couples to better plan, and afford, the big day while at the same time raising money for children’s charity ISPCC. IdealWeddings.ie is an on-line wedding broker service which has this month opened the doors of its office in Monivea, Co Galway, inviting couples to visit the premises and avail of all the services. IdealWeddings.ie helps couples by sourcing wedding service providers across Ireland who are willing to extend special offers, discounts, and incentives. Consultations are offered free of charge and all that is asked in return is that couples make a donation to the company’s affliated charity ISPCC.
Director of IdealWeddings.ie, Alan Fahy, says: “To date IdealWeddings.ie services have mainly been available on-line. However July 1 saw IdealWeddings.ie invite couples to visit our premises in Galway to discuss their requirements and see what special offers and discounts are available to suit their needs.”
Carmen Taheny, ISPCC community fundraiser said: “We are delighted to have the support of IdealWeddings.ie and the funds raised will help the ISPCC reach out to and support some of the most vulnerable children in Ireland. Every euro raised helps us work with more children to build better, brighter, futures.”
The company, which has a client list of more than 300 businesses nationwide, will assist couples in choosing suitable services and help them make an average of 10 per cent saving off the cost of their wedding service needs.
One couple who gave IdealWeddings.ie a glowing testimonial was Paul and Deborah Moloney who hit the headlines recently with the groom’s dad conducting the marriage ceremony.
Two years after being readmitted to the priesthood, Fr Michael Moloney married his own son at a ceremony conducted at the Garrison Church adjacent to Renmore Barracks, Galway.
“Myself and Deborah were thrilled to have found a website tailor made to help couples with the financial strain of a wedding. Idealweddings.ie provided us with vouchers we could simply print off or send to our mobile phone availing us of special offers and discounts from generous and understanding wedding businesses nationwide. Needless to say the money we saved came in very handy for our honeymoon. Thanks again guys for your help,” said Paul Moloney. IdealWeddings.ie is located at Ryehill Demesne, Monivea, Co Galway.
