Kathy and the team at DeStafford Bridal are just superb. I chose a Kathy DeStafford design and we then worked together to bespoke the gown. The process was so special, watching the gown take shape throughout each of the stages. Kathy has an amazing eye and such a wonderful nature, the process from start to finish was a pleasure. I cannot recommend DeStafford Bridal enough.

The De Stafford bridal experience is nothing short of PERFECTION! Everything was so enjoyable, from the moment I met Angela in the boutique to try dresses on, to the moment I left the shop with my dress bag two days before my wedding. I had heard horror stories of how stressful finding a dress can be and how pushy bridal boutiques can be, but I can gladly say DeStafford's are the exact opposite. During the initial two appointments to try dresses on and to get measurements taken, I dealt with Angela who was the most amazing dress consultant I could have hoped for. She is kind, and (crucially!) honest, and I found the whole experience of picking a dress with her to be what it should be - fun! When it came to fittings, I had 4 in total with Kathy DeStafford herself and the fittings team. Having the dress made from scratch and watching it come together was just magic - having a calico mock done up, and then the fabric fit, fitting the beading and details, and then the final final fit two days before the wedding. Knowing that Kathy was not going to let me leave the shop without the dress fitting like a glove was so reassuring, and it really did just that. My final appointment consisted of many minor adjustments being done until it was absolutely perfect. The dress was stunning; exactly what I dreamed of and it was made to fit me exactly. I also loved how I didn't have to worry about storing the dress or getting it altered myself - the custom service meant that the perfect fit was part of the process and pick up was literally two days before. I cannot thank Kathy, Angela, and the whole DeStafford's team enough for making my absolute dream dress. I would 100% recommend them to any bride looking for her perfect gown. I just wish I could do it all again with them!!

I was extremely nervous about wedding dress shopping and put it off for many months. Finally, I visited DeStafford in Howth and Kathy put me at ease straight away. Her eye for detail is impeccable and she listened to all my concerns. After trying on three different dresses, Kathy suggested I get a bespoke dress made to allow me to incorporate everything I wanted. She took a few minutes to draw an amazing design and immediately I was in love. From then on I had my fittings in Wicklow street. The whole team were amazing, particularly Linda. Everyone listened to what I wanted and I was able to change anything I wanted to throughout the process. I collected my dress today and it was such an amazing experience. I would advise anyone who is nervous about shopping to go to DeStafford and for any bride who wants something a little different or a something they ?can?t find? to let Kathy create their dream dress!

Thank you so much Angela! I bought my incredible Pronovia Orville dress in Kathy De Stafford! A beautiful boutique with fantastic range of dresses and designers! Angela recognised exactly what I was looking for within trying on two dresses and her honest opinion and excellent customer service made the experience relaxed and stress free! Thank you to all including the ladies in alterations where nothing was too much!

I had such a magical experience at De Stafford Bridal (Dublin) and left there feeling ecstatic! Kathy is so amazing at what she does, and truly made me feel like a queen for the day.
From the service to the beautiful selection of high quality dresses to the overall look of the boutique, I cannot recommend De Stafford highly enough.

I had seen 2 other boutiques and they made my sisters and I feel worthless. One of these boutiques had torn and dirty dresses, and the other boutique (which portrays itself as high end and I'm not sure why as they sell flimsy dresses) gave their sole attention to the other bridal group that had a higher budget than mine. One of the sales women even walked right by us with glasses of Prosecco to offer the other party. They even had music playing and we didn't.

If you're looking for a magical experience, beautiful dresses, top notch service and a memorable day, I highly recommend De Stafford Bridal in Dublin!

I had visited as many as 55 bridal boutiques from the top to bottom of Ireland. From my experience I can only but highly recommend that you visit Angela in the exchequer street store first to save some time, she has the patience of a saint and was a pleasure to deal with. Her customer service was second to none and possibly the reason I returned 4 times before finally purchasing a gown way over my budget!!!. They stock a wide range of gowns from Kathy's own designs to Pronovias, Gemy Maalouf, Raimon Bundo to name but a few.
The Boutique is of a contemporary design with great lighting, lots of space and beautiful dressing rooms. If looking for a Bridal Gown in Dublin make sure Kathy De Stafford is top of your list.
