my dress is a Maggie Sottero, Theres loads of names out there, La Sposa, etc. Just see what you like. Happy shopping :wv
if you dont want to waste your time...(like I did in a load of shops!!) then go to de staffords in dublin and ask for rachel...she knows what she is talking about and she is straight talking...i know some people would prob be offended by that...but it was exactly what I was looking for!!

alfred angelo is another designer, he puts a bit of colour in the dress and then you can match your bridesmaids to yours, if you like. have a google search on images so you can see what you like, then go to someone who sees what will suit you and in between is a compromise and your perfect dress the best of luck :wv :wv

Hi there I didn't have a clue when I went looking for a dress and didn't have any designer in mind at all, I was completely open minded. When I tried on my dress I just knew it was the one! The designer hadn't even crossed my mind and I didn't even ask who the designer was until I went back to try my dress a second time!! You'll know the dress thats right for you when you see it. Sorry, probably not much help. :-8

Modern, contemporary dresses - Jenny Packham, Sharon Hoey More traditional - Maggie Sottero, Ronald Joyce Lace dresses - Pronovias, La Sposa, San Patrick, Rosa Clara and there's loads more! Once you look round the shops, you'll start seeing there's only a couple of styles out there really. I 2nd deStaffords for lovely dresses!

I also would recc De Staffords or Colm in Town Bride in Powerscourt. Rather than focus on a designer they will tell you what shape works for your shape IYKWIM and that will save you a load of time. Enjoy!!!!
