After my father totaled our car (more on that later) we all were in need of a couple pints! The celebrations began at Quealy’s located in the central square of Dungarvan. This bistro-style pub was the perfect place for our rehearsal dinner.
We gathered our closest family and friends for a night out before the big day. It was a chance for both of our families to come together and get to know each other better. Being a family across two countries, it’s very rare to have everyone together at once and important for us to make it special when it does happen.
Much of the conversation revolved around wedding day preparations, catching up with old friends and quite frankly, who needed their next pint.
Although wedding day stresses were on our minds, we had a brilliant time and so excited for what was about to happen the next day.

How did you celebrate the day before your wedding? Did it involve “international” families coming together like it did for us?
