Fancy a full Irish wedding, folks?

In one of the smartest moves since Ireland said 'yes' to gay marriage last week, Discover Ireland has created a video that sells the country as the ultimate destination for gay weddings. As the first country in the world to legalise same-sex marriage by popular vote, it makes marketing sense. Except you'd have to remind all those planning to come here that the weather is risky, even in summer. And if you want to go full, deep Irish wedding, it will have to be only beef or salmon on the menu, the DJ must play Bon Jovi's Living on a Prayer, you can only send rude invites with diktats such as "cash gifts only" and "no Coast or Karen Millen", there must be bets on the length of the speech and there'll have to be a couple of odd relations there, elbowing the younger guests and saying: "You'll be next."
