Tickets are a super affordable 7-10e and it looks like its going to be a great day. This event is the first of its kind in Dublin – an event aimed specifically at couples that want to create a wedding as unique as they are, focusing on alternatives to the traditional wedding, as well as introducing green and organic alternatives.
The event will be chock full of talks, alternative wedding suppliers and even spot prizes! They'll even be showing the rugby for those gents who've reluctantly given up their Sunday for the sake of the lovely bride to be!

Vintage Wedding Inspiration

If you've decided that a vintage wedding dress is for you, you may want to look to the glamour of old Hollywood for inspiration.
Above is just a selection of the gowns adorned by starlets from the 1920s to the 1960s. Each one is so different from the next and this is one aspect that makes a vintage wedding dress so special.
When choosing a style, it should suit your own individuality and also reflect the overall feel of your big day. Do you want to dance the night away in a 1950s tulle prom dress or would you prefer to ooze elegance in a 1930s satin gown?
At Dirty Fabulous we stock dresses ranging from the 30's to the 60's and we are always delighted to guide you through the different dresses from each era until you find the right one for you.
