When it comes to finding the perfect dress, I am actually glad that I did not have to make that decision myself. This search can be a daunting task for brides, especially those who are trying to source a dress that ‘breaks tradition.’ It was on this premise that Lilac Rose Bridal was established over four years ago by Donna Kennedy. Donna was a bride looking for something a bit out of the ordinary, something EXTRAordinary, and so – the treasure trove of loveliness that is Lilac Rose was born. Lilac Rose Bridal not only offers a strong range of eclectic and stunning wedding dresses, but they successfully strive to provide brides with a wonderful and memorable experience while shopping for that special dress. This is definitely something that I can vouch for personally.
Although Lilac Rose will always remain true to their eclectic designs, they have evolved and now cater for those looking for a more classic style also. Some of the designers and labels they stock are – Charlie Brear, Rosa Clara, Justin Alexander, Eliza Jane Howell, Agnes Bridal, Gemy Maalouf, and Lou Lou. The store also stocks a beautiful range of veils, headpieces, fur stoles and Rachel Simpson shoes (divine!). Not only is there a wide range of styles but sizes range from 4 – 34 and prices from €950 to €3500, so there is no style, shape or budget they do not cater for.
They have recently signed the stunning Ronald Joyce for their Limerick store, and San Patrick (by Pronovias) for their Kilkenny store. “We have big plans for both stores for the coming year,” Donna shared, “ to make our customers’ shipping experience more enjoyable and interactive, but that’s all I can say on that for now…” I’m sure you are just as excited as me to see what Lilac Rose has in the pipeline.
As part of my experience on 'Don’t Tell the Bride', I was taken dress shopping. I was over the moon when it turned out to be Lilac Rose Bridal. I had walked by the store so many times in Limerick and could not help but dream… Low and behold, there I was, standing in my dream store, in my dream dress while Jamie was elsewhere, twirling my actual wedding dress in a pot of blue dye! From that very first step inside, you are transfixed – everything in sight is so beautiful, striking and unique. Not only that, but the staff are so attentive and welcoming. You automatically know you are in the best hands. They not only want you to look your most fabulous, but they want you to feel it too, and this is manifested through their kind words and the five star treatment you are given. Lilac Rose Bridal are definitely a store to visit on the search for the perfect dress for you.
Here are some of my favourite dresses from Lilac Rose (two of which might look a bit familiar!)
