Booking our Summer Wedding package with Band included

- Posted on: 23/07/2019 -

Winter and Summer all inclusive Wedding packages with choice of Band and Wedding Cake

So you have choosen a date and are in the process of checking venues and bands for availability. Emails are being exchanged back and forth, facebook messages are being sent, all in the quest to try and tie your date together with your ideal wedding venue and your band. This is no easy task, welcome to the world of wedding planning.

The Inishowen Gateway Hotel has been working with Entertainment Ideas for almost 5 years now. Entertainment Ideas provide our couples with up to 16 bands and DJ to choose from and only work with the best wedding bands in the business who can guarantee wedding couples their dancefloor will be seeing action all night long. They look after the booking with the band, secure the booking by contract, handle all payments (including card payments which can be difficult for bands to process) and ensure all the couples requests are communicated effectively to the band such as wedding playlists and first dance choice.

The process is very simple. The package price is worked out based on a couples date and number of guests so if your wedding numbers are higher or lower then all you have to do is ask our Wedding team for a quotation. The package is currently available up until December 2021. We have secured the best price possible for both your Band/DJ and wedding cake, it saves you time and money by researching these options yourself on your own time.

Once you have your date, the hotel has confirmed availability and booked you in, couples move to the next stage and review the bands included. The reason we do it in a step by step process is because the process can be overwhleming for some, with the wedding date being the hardest to try and confirm. Nothing else can be done until you have a date so we tell couples to take their time and choose their preferred wedding date carefully.

Band selection is the next step. Entertainment Ideas have a fantastic website lisitng all the bands available on the hotel package. Your wedding coordinator will give you the link and you take your time in reviewing your options, listen to a selection of each bands songs, view images and learn more about each band.

The type of music a band plays should connect with you both as a couple. For example a band playing mostly modern cover songs may not play country style music but the majority of your guests will be over 40 and will dance to a jive but not a coldplay cover song so choose your band according to the music you want played.

Your DJ is included, normally separete from the band, so set up is ready for when the band is finished their set and allows no break between music. If you prefer the band to provide the DJ then ask.

Final step is your Wedding Cake. The cake included is a three tier cake, with choice of flavours and design. Jackie is our Cake provider from Cakes and Bakes and her cakes are delicious.

So, that is the process. Are you interested in pricing this package for your wedding? If so email joleene@inishowengateway.com for a package price. All we require is your date, approx number of guests and your contact details so get in touch today to find out more and save you both time and money.

Don't forget our own Wedding Fair is taking place Thursday the 10th October from 6-9pm. See you there!
