This morning I got a call from a lady who is getting married in the fantastic Lough Rynn Castle, Co Leitrim in the summer of 2017, she got our details from a bride whom we provided full room custom draping with fairylights in Lough Rynn last year. This was great in itself as it is always lovely to get a referral from a happy customer. Normally in this case the lady will book us there and then as we have been recommended by someone who has used our services but this didn’t turn out to be the case with this lady, during the call she explained to me that she had started looking at fairylight backdrops 6 months ago but found all the names of the different options very confusing and each company she spoke to attempted to sell her their particular version of a fairylight backdrop that they had available for her particular date, she ended up with many different versions and prices and more confused that she had been at the start of the process.
Hearing this I told her I would not attempt to sell her any particular one but instead put together an unbiased comparison of all the different possibilities and leave her in peace to make her decision.
So here we go:
