Beautiful Bridal Looks Spotted in Our Real Weddings

As we come to the end of the year (can you believe tomorrow is December?!), we love to reflect on the gorgeous couples we’ve featured in our Real Weddings. While scrolling through all the romantic stories, we spotted so many beautiful bridal looks that we couldn’t resist sharing them with you. We’ve had brides find the perfect dress to match the wedding theme, creative brides who have had to do their own hair and makeup, and brides find their dream wedding beauty team! Take a look at these beautiful bridal looks and what inspired them…

Aisling wore an enchanting Mon Cheri dress that she got from Virginia Bridal in Limerick. It was a crepe style fit and flare with lace detail and buttoned-up illusion back.
