Overview for Wedding Venues

Each participating wedding venue has their own list of up to four exhibitors in every classification of wedding service (e.g. Photographers, Flowers, Cakes, etc.). When a couple books their wedding reception at a participating venue they are given a Wedding Fairs Online discount card.

This card contains a unique reference number which, when used at will enable the couple to access, view and make contact with the exhibitors associated with their venue.

Think of the service as an Online Wedding Fair, available to your couples 24 hour a day, 7 days a week, offering great savings and helping them to plan every aspect of their big day.

Each exhibitor (the wedding suppliers and not the venue) must offer a percentage discount to the brides and grooms of the venues which they are associated with. The incentive for each couple to use the service is that they can save up to €1500 or more off the cost of their wedding, depending on how many exhibitors they choose to book. Apart from the money saved, the couple can also plan their entire wedding with the knowledge that they have booked professional, local wedding suppliers.

If you already have a list of recommended wedding suppliers, the Wedding Fairs Online sales team will contact those suppliers and offer them first preference to participate in your Wedding Fairs Online service

Wedding Fairs Online will give you a fantastic competitive advantage, allowing you to encourage potential couples to book their wedding reception at your venue and in turn avail of savings of up to €1500 or more off the cost of their wedding. The saving will make a difference to a couple who are considering your venue over another. The saving may also allow the couple to upgrade their menu or invite extra guests. Also, consider that other wedding venues are already offering this service – a reason for you to also offer it.

The main beneficiary of this service will be the bride and groom who will achieve real savings on their wedding costs and avail of a comprehensive online wedding planning service. Because you will have introduced them to this website, they will associate the benefits with the venue and this will reinforce their perception that they have made the right choice and that you care about your customers in the current economic climate. is also visited by large numbers of brides and grooms who have not yet booked their wedding venue. While such visitors to the site cannot access the lists of suppliers, they can access details of the venues who are offering this service - a great opportunity to promote your special offers and forthcoming wedding fairs. We have recently introduced an enquiry feature where such visitors to the site can submit their contact details to selected venues in order to enquire about your packages, prices, etc.

The objective is to generate new business for the participating venues.

We do not charge any fee to venues to be included on Wedding Fairs Online. We will provide you with printed discount cards, each one personalised with the venue name and a photo of your venue. We will also provide you with the discount card in electronic format so that you can email it to couples if required.

All that we require from each venue is a firm commitment that you will issue a discount card to each couple when they book their wedding reception.

For an exhibitor, the annual fee is between €100 and €125 plus VAT depending on how many venues they choose to be associated with (minimum 2). The cost to an exhibitor is comparable to the cost of a Sunday afternoon wedding fair but with a much higher success rate

Wedding Fairs Online allows your couples to:

  • • Plan their wedding with professional wedding suppliers.
  • • Make considerable savings on their wedding supplier costs.
  • • Your brides and grooms can now use our new online wedding planning database, allowing them to record and manage their wedding planning tasks, guest lists, table plans, etc. Free of charge to your customers.

All of the above factors will increase your customers’ belief that you are doing your best to help them.

In addition to the benefits to your existing customers, Wedding Fairs Online will allow you to promote your business directly to couples who have not yet booked their wedding venue.

“I found Wedding Fairs Online very helpful when I started planning our wedding a number of months ago. I was introduced to this service by Dunboyne Castle when we booked our wedding reception. The website allowed me to select the types of services that I was interested in and very soon afterwards I had a number of suppliers contacting me, many of them offering very generous discounts too. It took a lot of the hard work out of finding suppliers like florists, bands, cars etc. I would definitely recommend this service to all brides planning their big day. “

“I found the Wedding Fairs Online service excellent in that it was both useful and practical. Preparing for my wedding seemed like a daunting task at first however this service did alleviate some of the stress. For me the best feature of the service is that I could contact the list of suppliers with the date and details of the wedding. The fact that the suppliers then emailed me offering details of their services and discounts allowed me to make an informed decision in terms of suppliers and prices. The discounts also helped. Overall I must admit it was an invaluable service to me in the preparation of my wedding.”
