The Mahon Wong Wedding Party
Time & Location
You're our favourite folks and it wouldn't be our big day without you. Many of you have known us individually from way back and seen us get together, pretend it's not a big deal, spend 24/7 with each other, have the audacity to have a kid together (out of wedlock) and even test our rural sensibilities by moving out of the Big Schmoke.
There's not much left to do but celebrate, Mahon Wong style!
The great people at Sullivan's Brewing Company Taproom will be looking after us and it wouldn't be a real party without food, food and more food. Be prepared to bbq, drink, dance and repeat.
How do I get there?
Kilkenny is serviced by both the train and buses. It's a 90min car journey for those coming from "The Big Schmoke". If you would like to save on your carbon footprint, get in touch and we may be able to help you out with a carpool. We won't lie but this a personalised question better suited to Google search engine.
What do I wear?
We will be going all out (obvs) so we suggest cocktail attire (we did a Google search for that one and the image results are slick) but please don't sacrifice comfort. Bow ties are encouraged.
What about the kids?
We love your kids but this party is a chance for you parents to let your hair down and go wild. As parents we know how much a break is needed so this is your chance to make your excuses and run. There'll be plenty of questionable photos for you to show them when they're teens. Book the grandparents and childminders asap.
What about gifts?
Sure, everyone loves gifts but the whole idea of this wedding party is to be with the people we treasure so your presence is our present. We really do discourage anyone putting themselves under financial pressure of any kind.
I know it's going to be a wild one, so where do I stay?
There's everything from $ to $$$$$ so Kilkenny is your proverbial oyster. Here's a few hotel suggestions: Rivercourt Hotel; Hibernian Hotel; Hotel Kilkenny; and Springhill Court Hotel. There is also some great Airbnbs so if you need to add more people let us know and we can connect you with great people to share with. B&Bs are also good options and we suggest you book quickly (Kilkenny is a surprising hotspot) and book a location within walking distance for your convenience.
<<< To make our first dance ever so special, Paul requests that you beautiful folks be part of the 'visuals'. It would be so great if you could download a strobe light app ahead of the wedding. We thank you in advance! >>>
