I’m pregnant, is there a maternity wedding dress?2020-08-20T20:02:05+00:00

As Ireland’s leading wedding dress shop we cater for all shapes, heights, and eventualities. If you tell us your situation we can and will help you in every way possible to find your wedding bridal wear.

I’m a mature Bride, what should I wear?2020-08-20T20:01:42+00:00

We carry a huge selection of wedding dresses. A more sophisticated dress is probably the most popular wedding dress for our mature Brides. Our international wedding dress designers cater perfectly for you.

Debs dresses and Bridesmaids, what’s the order time frame and is there a variety of colours?2020-08-20T20:01:25+00:00

12 weeks is the order time, and a variety of more than 82 colours are available in our collection of short and full length dresses. Curvy girls and taller figures will have no problem finding the perfect dress in our Boyle and Galway shops.

Can we get material in the fabric and colour of the bridesmaids?2020-08-20T20:00:40+00:00

Yes material is available to order. Many brides like to buy cravats for the groomsmen, they come in the same fabric and colour as the bridesmaids dress, and are the same price as buying a metre of fabric. The cravats can be ordered in sets of 3’s.

What’s the best way to go about getting my wedding dress/mother of the bride designers dress shortened or adjusted to my size?2020-08-20T20:00:06+00:00

It is vital to us that our Bride has a quality, unstressed seamstress working on her precious gown.

In recent years, brides and alteration specialists have preferred to meet and discuss the brides needs in the one-to-one setting of the specialist’s workspace, where everything is to hand.

Our Brides say that it is better to communicate directly with the dressmaker because:

The relationship developed between bride and alteration specialist ensures that trust is established and the bride has confidence that her gown will receive the ultimate treatment and care it deserves.

The specialist only takes on as much work as she knows she can undertake with ease, without stress or pressure.

The unique alteration to the Bride’s gown is agreed and communicated directly with the person undertaking the work, and therefore the specialist is totally and completely responsible to each Bride for the work, and as a result takes particular extra care to meet your needs.

We have compiled a list of Alteration Specialists, recommended and employed over the years by our brides and are happy to share that with you. We advise that each bride find the specialist she feels comfortable in building rapport with.

We are delighted to add to the list if you’ve found an excellent specialist to work with you on your very special wedding dress, please do share the dressmaker’s details with us for future Brides. Find us on Facebook MARIANS BRIDAL to let us know.

Be aware that the list is created from past Brides recommendations and for your information, Marians do not recommend any individual specialist. We advise the usual caveat emptor and encourage our Brides to get word of mouth recommendations from friends and family, to ensure the best workmanship on your international wedding dress designer.

When I buy my wedding dress off the rail, what’s the procedure?2020-08-20T19:59:39+00:00

Many Brides prefer to purchase their wedding dress off the rail, availing of a 10% discount. Full payment is made on the day of purchase, and the dress is generally taken on that day.

Marians are happy to store your dress for a short period, which can be agreed in advance with your fashion advisor.

Some Brides like to have their “off the rails” gown ‘spot cleaned’ – we recommend you do this after any alterations are done.

How long does it take for my dress to come in, from when i order it?2020-08-20T19:58:36+00:00

18 weeks is the usual time frame from the date of placing your deposit of 50%. Your MARIANS Fashion Advisor will call you when your order arrives in store, at which time the balance will be due. The balance can be paid on the week of this phone call. Some Brides prefer to do this by phone and MARIANS are happy to take payment this way.
