When planning a wedding outfit, it's all too easy to mindlessly enter the url of one the obvious retail giants. This year we're encouraging everyone to support homegrown Irish talent and businesses, where possible, when looking for a dress for that wedding.
With one eye on sustainability too, is it time to invest in one or two key pieces to take you through a bevvy of events for years to come, instead of throwaway ASOS purchases for every wedding? We reckon so.
With that in mind, we've done a deep dig into Irish designer's collections, brilliant Irish boutiques and online retailers to bring you our top pick of beautiful dresses for wedding guests in a broad range of styles, price points and sizes ranges. The only problem now is, we want them all!
