New bridal shop for curvy brides opening in Bray

A new bridal shop catering for curvy brides-to-be will open in Bray town on Friday, June 1.

Dreamy Curves Bridal Boutique will cater specifically for curvy brides-to-be and mothers of the bride and groom, as well as bridesmaids of all sizes.

Dreamy Curves is being set up by Niki Donohoe, who identified a gap in the market for curvier ladies within the bridal market in Ireland. In a dramatic change of career, Niki, a financial account by profession, has invested hugely in this venture, following extensive research.

She said she is very excited to help brides-to-be find their dream dress.

'Looking for and choosing your wedding dress should be one of the best parts of planning your wedding, but if you are a curvy bride-to-be, the reality can be quite different. Choice can be very limited and the experience of finding your special dress is what every bride deserves. I've chosen a range of bridal gowns and mother of the bride collections which are designed to flatter and provide support for those with curves. We promise all our customers a lovely, relaxed experience and lots of choice when they visit our beautiful new boutique.'

The shop is an appointment-only service with each appointment lasting around 90 minutes.

Dreamy Curves will stock around 65 unique bridal designs from Watters Wtoo, Romantica Silhouette, Sonsie by Veromia and Callista in sizes 16-32.

They will also offer a selection of bridesmaid dresses from sizes 6 up to size 32 from brands such as Watters, Jenny Packham, Dessy, Jenny Yoo, Alfred Sung, Lela Rose and Social Bridesmaids.

Nikki will stock a range of mother of the bride/groom outfits from mid-August featuring designs by Veromia dress code, Anoola, Jomhoy, Gina Bacconi, Kirsten Krog and Ann Balon, which will include hats, shoes and fascinators matched to the range of dress colours and designs in store.

Dreamy Curves Bridal will be located in Marleigh House, 82/83 Main Street, Bray, and appointments can be booked online via or by calling Niki Donohoe on 01 2765500 or 086 8075312.
