    Default Irish weddings

    I was just wondering.....How Irish Weddings are?What sort of music do you listen?Do you have any traditional habits?Something interesting or they are as boring as a Christmas day in Ireland?

    I would say must irish weddings are the same.They are long days. I got married at 2pm so got to the hotel for 4 pm.Boring dinner and speeches followed by the cutting of the cake.Band sets up plays until about 11.30 then a DJ takes over.After that there is a sing song thats were the people who are drunk think they can sing.

    I love weddings, usually a good day for drinking, danceing, singing, laughing and just generally having the craic. Same as most Irish holidays and festivals. I like christmas day too.

    We have this notion that Irish weddings are the best in the world but they're not really. Depends on the crowd and the choice of music after the dinner. Too many try to cater for the old aunties and uncles with the choice of band. A lot of old 60's and 70's music gets played and it's rubbish. So the term ' a wedding band' here usually refers to a band that is shit.

    But if u get a wedding with a modern band it can be lots of fun.

    Weddings are great craic once you have your first drink in your hand at the hotel . After the dinner has been served , it's betting time on the length of the speeches , and i always go for the 35 min mark which has been lucky for me twice before ! A good band to kick off the evening and by the time the dj comes on , i could put Usher to shame with my moves and blood/alcohol volume ! But don't like going to too many each yr as they cost a fortune . You're more than welcome to come along with me to see one for yourself Jessica
    I have no signature at the moment

    I was at a few American weddings over the past few years and they are really drawn out affairs.

    Each course is followed by a 60 minute break for music and dancing. There are about 5 courses.

    You might be having dessert at midnight.
