No Sign Of Recession At Wedding Fayre!!

15 October 2010 No Comments by The Northern Standard

There was no sign of the recession at last Thursday evening’s Wedding Fayre in the Hillgrove Hotel.  The venue was buzzing and everyone was talking about the huge attendance.  Obviously the Brides in Monaghan and surrounding counties know where to go for the very best in everything you could need for a fabulous Wedding Day!

The Hillgrove Hotel took the opportunity of the Wedding Fayre to introduce a new series of  ‘One Wedding Per Day Promise dates for 2011 and 2012.  They also offered fabulous ‘Sale Prices’ which are still available for 2011 with the following 5 course choice meals for only €35: Beef or Salmon, Turkey & Ham or Beef on selected dates for 2011.  Their fabulous Sale prices for 2012, include, 5 course Wedding Meal of Choice of Beef or Salmon for €39, Turkey & Ham or Beef for €39, Steak with Choice of either Salmon or Chicken for only €40 or Beef for €38.  These prices include all the usual extras such as tea/coffee on arrival for all guests, champagne reception for bridal party, flowers & candelabras, menu cards & table plans, red carpet, cake knife & stand, discounted overnight rates for your guests, complimentary accommodation for the Bride & Groom with Champagne Breakfast, and lots more. But be warned, dates are selling out quickly!!   For more information on the ‘Wedding Sale’, contact one of the Wedding Co-ordinators at the Hillgrove Hotel, Kimberley, Monique, Deirdre, Anoja or Mike at any time.  Or log on to the Hillgrove Hotel website

Most of the stands were swamped throughout the evening, with potential Brides, their Mums, sisters, bridesmaids, friends, and a few Grooms even got a look-in too!!  The atmosphere was electric and there was lots of excited chatting, eager banter (and barter!), energised negotiations, eager bookings and a bit of fun and giggling thrown in too!  Everyone seemed to enjoy the evening immensely as guests tucked into Bubbly and Canapés as they browsed the tremendous choice of stands on show.  Every Bride was presented with a fabulous Goodie Bag, filled with marvellous gifts from many of the exhibitors of the evening.

A fabulous Fashion Show was certainly one of the highlights of the evening and the stunning Wedding Gowns were supplied by Satin & Romance, the fashion show was professionally compered by Mary McCleary, and music supplied by DJ Gary Landers from Develish DJ’s.  The crowd were entertained with live music from local Band Tumbleweed, and Colarado Band was in attendance also. Menswear was provided by Patsy Boyle Menswear, Wilson’s Menswear and Etiquette Menswear.  Creative Ideas Bridal were also in attendance.  There was also a fantastic selection of Award Winning Photographers and Video; Laverys Photography & Video, Murphy Video Services, Ken Doyle Photography,  Zanni Photographic and Blue Moon Productions.  There were mouth-watering cakes by on display by Dinkins of Monaghan,

Fabulous Flowers as always were by Aileen’s Florist.  There was a wide variety of Wedding accessories and stationery on display by Sinead’s Creations, Rocks Stationery and Orchard Blossoms.  And you could have jetted off anywhere in the world with all the fantastic offers available from O’Hanrahan Travel and Ulster Travel.  Outside the building, it looked like a night at the Oscars, as the car park was adorned with magnificent Wedding Cars by Scott Limos, Glendale Limos and Exotic Limos.

At the end of an enormously successful evening, all that could be seen were smiling faces as the guests left the Majestically Magical Hillgrove Hotel full of excitement and enthusiasm about their forthcoming Weddings.  What a Show!!  The only problem is, it will have to be even bigger and even better next year, to keep up to those standards!!  Watch this Space!!
