Alexanders in Parnell St have a good selection and you don't need an appointment. Are there any style/make dresses you are looking for in particular? Also, just bear in mind that a lot of shops require you to make appointments when bridesmaid shopping also so maybe ring ahead to avoid any unnecessary trips!

Know it is not in Dublin but if you are in Mayo, highly recommend Tracy Bridal in Galway. Huge selection of dresses. Did the whole Dublin thing and found most places had a very limited selection. Could be lucky though.

Bridal Wraptures have a good selection too. But you have to make an appointment. I think its worth trying Debahams, Monsoon, Coast and House of Fraser etc. too. They tend to work out cheaper (especially if you buy them later on the internet from the UK) and it means that your bridesmaids can try on and buy in their own size. Bridal shops tend to carry only one of each dress as samples.

I went to Debenhams in Henry St last Saturday, I'm getting my bm dresses made but I wanted to check what styles, length's etc would suit the girls. Definately worth doing because if you have a style in mind at least you can check the web for similar styles (..and possibly better prices).

Bridal Heaven in Swords do really lovely ones. I was at a wedding a few months ago where the BMs had dresses from there and they were fab.
