Don't think Springfort can cater for more than 200.

But yes, no one knows that many people!

Went to a wedding there and know someone who worked there and it's about 200/220 capacity. Hotels like that don't have room for 300 plus people and they run the restaurant along with the functions so wouldn't have the capabilities to do the two together.

It seems we Irish are obsessed with going seriously over the top at weddings, getting into massive debt for expensive dresses, pricey hotels, limos, bands, flowers, inviting 300+ guests, elaborate hen and stag parties abroad, “destination” weddings where the guests have to pony up serious dosh for the pleasure of seeing their family member or friend declare their undying love to their spouse in a far flung location.

Isn’t the marriage, not the wedding, the actual important bit?

My OH and myself have been talking about getting hitched, and if we do, as it will be a same-sex wedding there are no expectations or traditions to slavishly follow, no interfering families so we might have a small, intimate ceremony.

When ye get a wedding invite do you leap for joy or groan with despair? What do you think of weddings and the wedding industry?
You forgot got the next day barbishitathon.
