    Ceilidh at wedding?

    Hey all, 


    Considering having a ceilidh at our wedding. We've been to a wedding before where they had this and it was a lot of fun and got everyone dancing. 

    Has anyone had one at their wedding? If so, what time did you have the ceilidh and did you manage in your wedding dress?

    If i need to change outfits it can't be too early in the night so evening guests can actually see me in my dress. 

    Confused as to how it would all work really! 

    Help appreciated :)

    I have seen a few of these at weddings and in each case the bride did not change. Some did not stay all night and were supplemented by a DJ

    I had a barn dance at our wedding - despite my husband's protestations beforehand, it was brilliant and everyone commented about how entertaining it was, both as participants and observers - I would say definitely do it!  I had two dresses - I had a short, simple dress made for the evening, but then, I didn't have evening guests.  It was a quick change in the ladies loo for me!  Make sure you have your photographer on hand to witness all the errors!  Good luck!

    Ceilidhs are very common at weddings up here in Scotland and are great fun! The bride doesn’t usually change and most of the women take their high heels off for it or bring flat shoes to dance in.
