Our Bridal Boutique of the Month for February is Folkster Bridal, our go-to recommendation for all and any bohemian, modern brides. An extension of Folkster, owned by Blanaid Hennessy, Folkster Bridal is the joint dream of her and her sister Roisin Hennessy, who now heads up the Bridal Department. Both sisters hand pick every single piece of their collection, travelling the world to find the perfect Folkster Bridal Edit.
While Folkster can be found in Dublin and Kilkenny, the bridal showroom is only in the Kilkenny location, and it in, you'll find designers like Marco y Maria (romantic, whimsical, statement gowns) and Chic Nostalgia (feminine, lace gowns in warmer nude and blush tones). However the shining star in their bridal collection is probably Theia Bridal, which they stock exclusively in Ireland. "Although Theia are based in New York, their head designer is the incredibly talented Kerry born Don O'Neill. He makes intricately beaded bridal gowns that emphasise the best of a woman's curves, simple and show-stoppingly elegant crepe gowns and unique mix & match bridal separates," says Roisin.
They offer a one-to-one bridal styling experience, which is super relaxed and personal. "We aspire to provide something a little different to both our Brides and their besties in our Bridesmaids collections. We travel a lot to hand source the best mix of elegant and unique looks for our brides. Every piece in our showroom is chosen to reflect who our bride is and give her something she won't find elsewhere," she says.
The sisters are currently in Arizona with their photographer brother Eoin Hennessy shooting their new collection, so throughout the month we'll be showing you more of what's to come from Folkster Bridal this year!
