Your Wedding, Your Choices!

Booking The Honeydews for your wedding takes the headache out of organising your entertainment for the day! Just imagine, your church ceremony, your pre meal drinks, your after dinner dancing and your DJ all sorted with one phone call! And better still, if you book more than one option you'll get a 10% discount off the second, third and fourth option.

Give Fidelma a call (087-2242724) or email her on and she'll be happy to go through your options with you.

Your Church/Civil Ceremony:

This sets the mood and tone for the day so underestimate its importance at your peril! Fidelma has a wide and varied repertoire of Wedding Ceremony music, be it classical, Irish, or contemporary and can guide you through each step of the process, advising on where music is required and what is a good fit for each part of the mass. She will provide whatever musicians you require, e.g. harp, flute, piano, violin. Alternatively if you would like three-part harmony for your ceremony the three Honeydews with their pianist would be delighted to sing their unique arrangements of popular wedding ceremony classics on your special day.

Your Pre Dinner Drinks:

After the Wedding Ceremony is finished, and you're actually married (!!) it's time to head to the hotel and let the hair down. Some relaxing, unobtrusive background music is welcomed by your guests at this stage, and adds ambience and class to the occasion. The three Honeydews and their pianist have a 90 mins repertoire of mellow jazz, swing and contemporary classics to perfectly fit the bill.

Your After Dinner Dancing:

This is probably the most important part of your entertainment; the part of the night that everyone will be talking about the following day! Since your audience will consist of varying ages and tastes in music, it follows that your band has to try to cater to them all. The Honeydews with their all-live drums, saxaphone, double bass and piano are particularly adept in this area. Any of your older guests who don't like to dance will be entertained just by watching the band as they put on quite a show! Their repertoire is upbeat and rhythmical and aimed at keeping the dance floor filled. Their programme covers hits from the 1920s through the decades right up to the noughties.

Your Disco:

Amazingly, after such a long day, you'll find many of your guests, especially the younger ones, are now getting their second wind! With The Honeydews, that's not a problem. Our wonderful sound engineer is also a DJ so as soon as our live set is finished, he's straight into the first number from his DJ set, with no time lost on setting up his sound or lighting equipment. He'll play for up to 2 hours and is happy to tailor his play list to your personal taste if so desired.

Call/Mail Fidelma for The Honeydews' rates for any of the above. The Honeydews are Dublin-based, so gigs involving travel are a little more expensive. However, The Honeydews are happy to discuss all options with you.
