Update January 2015: We are now open on Sundays from 1pm to 6pm!
Based in the heart of Cork City, we have been helping brides to find their perfect wedding dress for over 100 years.
Set over three luxurious floors in our new French Church Street Premises, The Moderne Bridal provides an elegant and comfortable space for brides to find their perfect dress.
We stock over 500 dresses from international designers such as Mori Lee, Maggie Sottero, Special Day, Sottero & Midgley, Ella Rosa and Ronald Joyce. We also stock a large range of dresses for curvy brides up to size 36, with specially cut styles and great features like wide, comfortable straps and fitted bodices which will create a gorgeous silhouette. Brides are invited to make an appointment for a private consultation with one of our expert stylists.
We offer a large range of bridesmaid and flowergirl dresses from designers like Kenneth Winston, Special Day and Alexia Designs. These are made to measure and can be ordered in a wide range of colours (fabric swatches available in store).
Customers are invited to call in to browse our large range of bridal shoes from Paradox Pink and Rainbow Club. These gorgeous shoes are designed with style and comfort in mind. Most styles can be dyed to order -which can suit the offbeat bride- but are equally popular with those shopping for bridal party or formal wear.
Also in store, we have a fantastic range of veils, headpieces, jewellery and accessories from Richard Designs, Twilight Designs, Arianna's Tiaras and Bianco Evento with something to suit every type of bride.
Seasonally, we stock a great selection of communion dresses, shoes and accessories. We also sell a carefully selected capsule range of stunning debs dresses, shoes and bags and keep track of schools to help avoid same-dress disasters.

Bridesmaid: An appointment is only needed if dressing 4 or more bridesmaids.

Mary thank you so much for all your help and support in organising the bridesmaids and me. Everyone loved the dresses and we had a brilliant day. What a fantastic shop. They make you so relaxed and take the stress out of finding the dress for you.Sent on 22/05/2014

After trying numerous bridal shops,with no joy in finding my dream dress,the staff in the moderne listened to me from the beginning of my consultation,and were very kind,understanding and extremely helpful... Being a curvaceous bride isn't always straight forward in finding the right dress to suit your body shape,but I would look no further than the moderne,they have such a variety to try on in so many different styles,I highly recommend this store to everyone getting married,I found my dream dress,and even better my bridesmaids dresses and flower girl dresses too....Sent on 22/05/2014

Thank you so much to Veronica for helping me find MY DRESS yesterday. The very first dress I tried on (and it was on sale)! Nothing else had the wow factor for me. I love it and can't wait to wear it down the aisle.Sent on 22/05/2014
