Marian Gale – Luxury Shopping Destination
With exclusive international labels sourced from around the world, Marian Gale’s stunning collection of wedding dresses has been meticulously curated to accommodate the varying needs of the modern Irish bride.
With a background in dress design and tailoring from the Grafton Academy, Marian Gale first opened the doors of her boutique in 1980 and has never looked back since. Starting out in Clontarf, Marian made the move to Donnybrook in 1984 where the boutique currently resides and has remained as a renowned luxury shopping destination for the past 36 years.
With exclusive international bridal labels sourced from around the world, our stunning collection of wedding dresses has been meticulously curated to accommodate the varying needs of the modern Irish bride. Only the finest fabrics are used for our luxury dresses, from delicate chiffon to a structured Mikado silk, and embroidery in the form of Mantilla Spanish lace to antiqued beading. An in-store tailoring service is offered to ensure the perfect fit in your dream dress. Our tailor also offers further customisation of dresses, such as adding straps and sleeves. Our dresses typically take 12 weeks to make and we additionally recommend allocating a further 2-3 weeks for fittings and alterations to be carried out. We typically carry sizes 6-18 but certain styles are available to order up to a size 24. Some styles are available ‘off the peg’ meaning you can buy over the counter, please see in store for more details. Prices from €699 – €2200.
Marian has garnered this reputation, along with amassing a large, loyal following of customers, by adhering to a simple ethos from the very beginning of her career: to provide high standards of service, quality and exclusivity. Marian’s vision has always been to offer a beautifully curated collection of unique and luxury garments, supplying special clothes for special occasions, which can be found nowhere else in Ireland.
Marian and her wonderful team are passionate about providing the best possible experience for their customers, offering in-store tailoring and personal shopping facilities in the luxurious, tranquil environment of the Donnybrook boutique. Whilst her expertise in dressing for special occasions, such as weddings, races and black-tie events is renowned, Marian also stocks premium day and work wear on a year round basis.
