About Us

Engaging Bridal

What We Do

The fine details have always mattered to us and that’s why we want to create hand crafted, meaningful pieces for every bride to have on her wedding day.

We can provide a custom made service for bridal gowns, mother of the bride, bridesmaids and evening wear.

If you need a dress in a hurry, bridal alterations, or even your gown cleaned after the event, don’t hesitate to contact us for an appointment.

With over 18 years of experience, attending to hundreds of brides, you can count on us for great advice, tactful honesty and a service that goes the extra mile.

Have your perfect bridal gown designed by Aideen as you discuss your individual needs and preferences for colour, fit, style and length. 

You can try on our sample pieces and choose from our beautiful collection of bespoke accessories.

Custom Bridal Dresses

We take great care with the final touches of our veils and other accessories.

Our standard veil combs are made from clear, hypoallergenic plastic and wrapped in coordinating tulle, providing a neat and secure finish.

We use only high quality lace, tulle and embellishments that we’ve found and fallen in love with for their texture, luster, sparkle or feel.

“We want to create a sustainable, credit neutral bridal boutique so we’ll never let you down where your dress is concerned…”

Our Boutique

Founded by Aideen Harte, we began in 2013 as Very Engaging Designs, an Irish Bridal Designer label, featuring in high end retail establishments such as The Design House in Dublin’s south side city center.

The opportunity arose to establish a permanent presence within the community of Bray, Co. Wicklow, a bustling seaside town full of friendly people and beautiful surroundings.

Engaging Bridal first opened on Bray Main St in May of 2016, in one of the lovely old Georgian buildings between Florence Rd and Quinsborough Rd.

Since then, Aideen has been helping brides from all over Ireland (and beyond) find their perfect style, dress and accessories, doing whatever she can to provide the best possible service for each and every bride that comes her way. 

Natalie joined her as partner in 2019, specialising in bespoke bridal veils and accessories. She loves the fine, detailed work involved in making the perfect finishing touch to compliment any bridal outfit.

Our Location

In between the seaside and the mountains, we count ourselves lucky to be located in the heart of Bray, Co. Wicklow. Our Boutique is on Main Street, next to the new Florentine shopping centre, with the seafront and train station less than ten minutes stroll away. Parking is currently available at the Herbert Road Car Park and also at the shopping centre in the near future.
