Can’t thank Marie & all the team enough for helping to organise our Wedding on the 8th September 2022.  From the moment we met, she helped us throughout our whole wedding journey. She knew exactly what we wanted, giving plentiful support & ideas. She used the flowers, lanterns and signage exactly as explained. The room for the ceremony & the table décor for the reception was even better than we could have imagined. From helping with puzzle / colouring books for the children at place settings, gluten free wedding cakes, last minute wedding suite fixes to & assisting with a very nervous bride. Marie was just amazing.

The girls at To Have and To Hold done an amazing job for our wedding on 29th July 2022. They are so helpful and put so much work into their decor and the detail in the flowers was complimented by all of our guests on the day. The girls are so easy to deal with and always on the end of the phone or an email with any questions we had at any time. We are so glad we chose them for our special day xx

To Have & To Hold were great to deal with from start to finish. They have an amazing selection of pieces to rent to suit every style of wedding. In hindsight I would of used them for more!

Sarah Kearney 11th June 2022

The girls from to have and to hold were brilliant, nice easy process to order whatever you would like, there was no pressure to get more props. They took care of everything. We were delighted with everything.

I couldn’t recommend to Have and to Hold more highly. They did such an amazing job in decorating the church and the venue for our wedding. They were super organised in all the processes, and made sure that we had the style we were looking for. Marie made many recommendations that we loved and that we considered and went for! We were asking for some extra jobs at last minute (placing the booklets at the church and favours at the venue) and they helped us without any issues! Thanks again for everything… our guests were really impressed with the decoration and congratulated us!

Marie from To Have and to Hold was Fantastic!!! She helped us postpone our wedding twice due to COVID and was patient with us throughout with securing vendors. She was on top of every detail and it was so worth it to have her with me the day of. Their decor and stationary were exactly what I wanted. I highly recommend TH&TH!! Thank you Marie!!

Devin & Alan

The team at To Have & To Hold were truly amazing, from start to finish. After being left high and dry by a different vendor – two months before the wedding – my partner and I explained (frantically) our situation to the team and they more than willing to help.

We dealt with the lovely Marie and she was able to bring our vision to life, arranging the decor and flowers in a way that suited our theme perfectly. As we were living in London, we couldn’t get to the shop in person initially, and after sending my ideas to Marie, she put together a virtual profile of how the decor and flowers would look (which was so amazing). After being messed about with the vendor I had previously booked, this touch made me so happy and at ease – I really felt I was in the hands of professionals at all times and I certainly was.

Nothing was an issue to the girls, I wholly trusted the team, from the first time I spoke to Marie, all my stresses melted away and I knew that everything would be taken care of to a high standard. The church, flowers and venue looked amazing on the day. They were like the decor fairies – even though I barely seen them, their presence was surely felt and the magic they sprinkled underpinned the whole day and brought my very own fairy tale wedding dream to life.

Honestly, brides to be, I would look no further than To Have & To Hold. It’s the most perfect one-stop-wedding-shop that will make all your dreams come true.

Fiona & Chris

TH&TH we’re great! Everything was perfect and the venue looked amazing! The attention to detail was fab!

Ellen & Cathal

To Have and to Hold were a dream to deal with from day one. We ordered the Moon Arch and the Mirror and they were amazing. Our guests loved them too and everyone got photos with the Moon Arch. To Have and to Hold set everything up and took it away the next day with no issues. I would highly recommend them for any event especially a wedding!

Eimear McCarthy

It was an absolutely perfect day and even though it rained we wouldn’t have changed it as the day was so perfect.
The flowers and decoration on the day were so much more than I had visualised. They were amazing. The colour scheme was perfect.

As I walked up the aisle I couldn’t take the decorations in properly until I sat down and I looked around the room and just said wow! The room was absolutely perfect and so so beautiful.

The Capel Suite was Incredible! The flowerballs as the centrepiece were absolutely amazing and really complimented the room. Even though we only had 60 people at the wedding each table looked full as the decorations really filled them up.
We received so many compliments on the decorations and many of the guests saying it was the most beautiful wedding and so beautifully decorated. So thank you again it’s so good to hear feedback like that from guests.

The flower wall became centre stage for the night after the cake cutting. I would recommend every couple getting married to hire a flower wall as it adds so much to a wedding. Every guest was standing in front of it at some point of the night. Everyone loved it for photos and everyone’s photos look incredible now as a result.

Una & Sean

Could not recommend To Have and To Hold More! The decor was beyond fab. All my guests commented on it. Everyone in the office was more than helpful. They were always at the end of an email for any questions I had during the build up to the wedding. Such a lovely crew. And such a positive experience getting them for my wedding! 5 stars all around!

Fiona Brennan

Great service, quick and easy to deal with, really happy, would recommend

Jonathon Glavin

We had Our wedding day on 16th July 2021. Marie Griffin at To Have & To Hold went above and beyond to cater for our every request.

To Have & To Hold provided lovely signs for our church venue, dressed our drinks reception with an amazing Fero stand and lovely “Welcome to our Wedding” mirror sign. It got even better as we entered the function room for our wedding reception which only had 50 guests.

The room was divided with a lovely extended back drop with a fairy light back drop in the centre. The tables were wonderfully decorated with martini glasses with floating candles or candleabras. The tables also had table runners and the chairs had lovely silver sashes. The cake table had an amazing silver sparkling table cloth. I would honestly say that the attention to detail by Sandra and her team was beyond anything that we could have asked for.

You cannot go wrong hiring To Have & To Hold for your Wedding Day. Thanks so Much!

Julie & Shane

They provided really nice decoration for church and hotel. We needed to bring some thing to the hotel after church. To Have and To Hold helped us bring them without any issue. It saved a lot of time and helped us a lot. They are a really nice company and would recommend for every wedding.

Chongkai Ma

The service provided by Sandra and Marie was absolutely brilliant. When we visited the showroom we were given so much time and attention and they did a beautiful job with the décor in the church, it looked amazing. They then transported the décor from the church to our venue and again, it created the most magical atmosphere for our Christmas wedding.
We cannot recommend To Have & To Hold enough, thank you for the making our day so special!

Deirdre & Ian

We were delighted to have your arch on our wedding day. It really set the room off to perfection and the matching of the decor to my wedding flowers was perfect. Although it was a micro wedding I didn’t want to compromise on my decor and I was thrilled with how the arch looked in our photos. Marie was a pleasure to deal with from the beginning and the process to book was easy to use. Thanks again for being part of our day. Orla and Keith

Orla & Keith

Highly recommend the great work that Sandra does. Thanks for making our wedding day last Saturday so stress free. No detail was overlooked – love your work!

Lisa Kelleher

We could not praise Sandra enough for planning our wedding. We found her to be courteous, professional, patient and extremely helpful in all our dealings with her. She had a calming influence if we started to panic over design issues. We would have no hesitation whatsoever recommending Sandra as she totally transformed our ceremony and function room giving it the wow factor.

Martin Behan

Sandra has a vision for a room that no one could perfect. She made us feel so comfortable with her amazing ideas which proved to be a big talking point of the day. Wouldn’t have been the same without Sandra and her amazing team. Can’t thank you enough

Brid Hanrahan

To Have & To Hold really added the WOW factor to our wedding day. The decor was fantastic, with all the right touches and exactly the theme we were going for. It was so relaxing in the run-up and on the day to know Sandra & the team had everything under control.

Laura Hosford

A big thank you to To Have and To Hold for decorating so elegantly for our wedding. They couldn’t have been nicer or any more facilitating with all the changing of dates due to the pandemic. We were so happy with it all and couldn’t recommend them more to enhance your special day!

A happy couple

Ann-Marie Ronan
We can not recommend To Have & To Hold enough. Sandra and the team were a pleasure to deal with from day 1. After our first meeting Sandra knew exactly the kind of wedding we wanted and did not disappoint on the day! It was perfect in every way! You would not know the team were working away in the background, they managed to change the room completely around between the ceremony and the meal with no interruptions to our celebrations.. if you are looking for that special touch to your wedding then look no further than To Have & To Hold
Marguerite Curley
We met Marie when we were planning our wedding and spoke to her about what we were hoping to add for decor. Marie listened to us and made some great suggestions.

I ordered items and added to these during the year and this was also no issue. I never had to worry about the decor as knew To Have and to Hold had it in hand.

On the day our venue looked amazing and we received so many compliments. Thanks to Marie and Sandra for making our venue look extra special, for our special day.

We have used two fairylight backdrops and a green arch from ‘To have and to hold’ and they have really changed the hotel room into a beautiful wedding ceremony venue. We have also received advice and lovely positive attitude from the staff. Would definitely recommend.
Gosia Fynn
From the moment we went to the showroom I knew we were in the right place. The selection of items to rent was great. Everything we picked was available and was dropped and collected from our hotel seamlessly. It was a pleasure to work with To have and to hold, I’d have no hesitation in recommending to a future bride and groom. Thanks a million.
Elaine Fuller
Cannot believe it’s a week since our wedding! We had the best day of our lives and loved all the details that Sandra and her team put into decoration the church and venue.
My bouquet was exactly what I asked for. It was a total pleasure to work with Sandra she was open to all our ideas and gave us some extra special details that really brought the devour together. I’d do it all over again tomorrow if I could. Thank you so much Sandra you were a pleasure to work with.
Aife O'Connell
We cannot thank all the staff enough for their hard work in decorating our venue for our wedding. It’s never easy planning a wedding from abroad but everyone at to have and to hold were fantastic from day one.
The service which they offer is fantastic, with such a wide choice of decor to choose from. No request was too difficult and any queries that we had were dealt with promptly.
I would highly recommend the company. Thank you for making our day so beautiful!
