As 2021 slowly winds to an end, one of the most significant changes in the wedding industry we've seen in the last two years is the growth in popularity of chic, small city weddings! Couples are forgoing the traditional enormous guestlist and enormous costs for something more personal and modern. With the development of casual wedding days, we've also seen a rise in the bridal jumpsuit; when you're spending the day strutting around Dublin city and popping into bars and restaurants with your family, the last thing you need is a huge ballgown to weigh you down!
Be it a slick reception look or a delicate ensemble to swan down the aisle; jumpsuits have grown in popularity in recent years. This is evident in the number of bridal designers adding them to their collections. We show you some of our favourite looks for different
