F.A.Q.S.

F.A.Q.S.

Do you do packages?

We dont sell pre-set packages as we believe that every every wedding is completely unique, so we tailor a styling package unique to you, to suit your needs, tastes and budget and venue. This is why we offer an obligation-free consulatation so that we can discuss your needs and tastes in person.

How long does a styling set up take?

Depending on the size of an order, set-up’s can take anything from 2 hours up to 12 hours for a team. Where possible on large set-ups we may try to begin setting up the day before an event, and sometimes may even request that we have to.

It is important that you let VIP Weddings know of any changes such as funerals or occassions happening in a church, or events in a venue as we may need to adjust our set-up plan.

How do we go about booking VIP Weddings?

We only take one styling booking per date so that we can give our couples the full VIP attention they deserve on their special day, so check your date for availability as soon as you know it.

If you think VIP Weddings is right for you, you can save the date with a €150 date deposit. 50% of the balance, or the cost of any fresh flowers (whichever is greater) is then due 8 weeks prior to the date, with the balance due/cleared on or before the day.

Is there a delivery charge?

We offer free delivery on any order over €300 within a 20km radius of Ballina, Mayo, where we are based. Delivery is free over €500 within a 50km radius.

Orders under the amount, or of further distance may incur additional delivery charges, but are assessed on an individual basis.

Do you hire items for DIY set-ups?

We no longer hire items individually as they tend to get broken/left behind/forgotten, so in the interest of making sure all our prospective couples get what they have booked, and also that our products are set up properly and look their best on your special day, we only hire items we transport/set up/collect ourselves.

Can we bring items from the Ceremony to the Reception?

No unfortunately we cannot allow others to transport/set up/collect our items. If some items are required for the reception venue we can arrange this, but in some circumstances it may incur an additonal charge, but this is assessed on an individual basis depending on location/proximity etc.
