Myrtle Ivory Bridal Couture.
Myrtle Ivory is run by Mum & Daughter Marina & Meghann and is very conveniently located in Annes Lane, Dublin 2. They have a fantastic selection of exclusive designers including the fab Stephanie Allin, David Fielden, Amanda Wakeley, Claire Pettibone & our own homegrown Patrick Casey.
Gemma says: "I married in Ireland but live overseas, myrtle ivory was very accommodating and flexible and made the process a lot easier as I was not very flexible! Found two dresses I loved there and still wish I could have worn two, amazing selection compared to other stores."
Natalie says: "This was the first shop I visited and I found a beautiful Claire Pettibone dress, I was so lucky I found my dress in the first shop I visited.I went to other bridal shops but none of them matched the selection and unique design of the dresses in Myrtle Ivory.If you want a unique dress this is the shop to visit. I was dealing primarily with Meg, she was very friendly and gave me space to decide for myself whilst at the same time offering her advise. The staff in general were professional from beginning to end."

Emma says: "I had such an amazing experience with the girls in The Suite - from the very first day I arrived to try on, to the day I collected my beautiful dress from them! As my wedding was abroad they even took my suitcase from me and expertly packed the dress so I had as few wrinkles as possible when I arrived! Such great and friendly service, and their attention to detail was fab! Thanks so much again for everything girls."

Zanne says: "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."
