Equality Wedding Show

Come join us for what promises to be a fun filled informative day for all wedding couples!

The Equality Wedding Show is about just that, equality, for all couples be you gay, straight, trans etc etc!

It is crazy that Ireland is only recognising and allowing the same rights to gay couples in the last few years… If we think about that too much we get mad so… onwards and upwards!

We are so thrilled to be part of this equality show again, last year we had so much fun meeting all the brides! We organised the fashion show with our models, met some very groovy dancers and some showgirls!

Here’s some pics of last year’s show –

We loved that some couples found their dresses together and how others were trying to decide who should wear the veil – there’s NO RULES we always say!

We will be one of 50 of Irelands top wedding suppliers showcasing our services for you. The event will have every supplier from the most unique, exclusive & chic Wedding Venues, Photographers, Bridal & Groom, Bands, Jewellers & everything in between.

Entertainment & MC on the day by one of Ireland’s favourite drag queens!

The organisers are also running a pretty cool competition;

Don’t Tell the Bride Comes to Trim – Twice in one Week!

Ladies, would you trust your man to choose your dream gown?! What are the chances are of him getting it right??

This week we are delighted to being filming with RTE for their brilliant wedding series ‘Don’t Tell The Bride’! We are super excited to help the groom when he arrives at the boutique, no doubt a daunting task for any man!

By chance this week we had a little practice run on a more low key, yet equally significant affair, read on….

A few weeks ago a very romantic (and brave) man,  came to us to choose his future fiance’s dress! He spent about half an hour browsing through the gowns with his two young daughters. Then we stepped in to assist, well as best as we could anyway! We enquired as much as possible on the future bride’s style,shape, her taste in dresses, whether she likes strapless, sleeves, lace or satin etc.   Eventually they settled on a Maggie Sottero strapless soft satin gown with beautiful diamante beading to the bust, a simple yet elegant and romantic gown, perfect for their abroad wedding!

Oh, did we  mention that he had already booked their beach wedding in an exotic location??!!

After he proposed to her on Sunday (undoubtedly a romantic gesture that we have yet to hear about!), she certainly got the surprise of her life when he took her to our seamstress Irina to ‘pick up a suit’.  blindfolded her and we nervously helped her into the Maggie Sottero number he had chosen.

Don't Tell The Bride

The Maggie Sottero Gown Lovingly    Chosen by our Romantic Man!

We looked on with baited breath as she stared in silence at her reflection, for what seemed hours rather than seconds. To see her shock turn to a huge broad smile, we all hugged with relief and joy!! To our surprise, it fitted perfectly and she commented that she could not have chosen as well herself. 

She told us she had imagined that she could never ‘pull off’ a strapless sweetheart gown and presumed she never could. Yet there she stood, looking so radiant and beautiful in the form fitting strapless gown, one she would never have dared to don only for her future husband.

Now that is true romance personified, needless to say there were a few tears. What a man!

The experience is surely great practice for our ‘Don’t Tell the Bride’ experience this week, let’s hope the groom does as fantastic as this brave divil!

Keep posted to find out how our bride and groom get on!

Wedding Fairs – The Hidden Preparations!

Wedding fairs are the core ingredient for engaged couples preparing for their special day, where a venue hosts top class suppliers, showcasing everything from wedding favours to chocolate fountains!

The fairs are an excellent starting point for couples who aren’t sure where to begin planning a wedding as all exhibitors and wedding coordinators are on-hand for a chat or to answer any questions couples might have. They are a buzzing haven of information on the necessities for modern weddings, the one-stop-shop for meeting staff and suppliers, discovering a wealth of advice from photography prices to tailored package deals to the delicious taste of red velvet cake.

However, it is forgivable when overcome with anticipation and enthusiasm upon entering the venue, to overlook the effort and time that goes into organising a wedding fair, from the venue’s marketing campaigns and ballroom preparations to the individual supplier travelling and setting up their stall to exhibit and showcase their unique service.

Many venues spend lots of time and energy on advertising and preparing for an upcoming wedding fair, which they usually host twice in the year.  It is an important opportunity to show off the ballroom and service to couples at its absolute best from general decor,fresh flowers and mood lighting to the staff and bridal suites.

Simultaneously, the exhibitors are also seeking to show off their unique services on the day and Timeless Bridalwear are no exception!

In preparation for a wedding fair, the groundwork for us typically starts a week to ten days prior to the show.  We market our attendance to the fairs widely on social media and ensure to follow up on any queries.

Over the past two years we have mastered the ideal layout of our stands, depending on the table size and location in the ballroom.  A small bit of subtle visual merchandising is key to attracting couples to a stall! We also run competitions including vouchers and freebies, which we has proved very popular!

Our Table at a Recent Wedding Fair


Care and thought is put into the stand and table layout in order for it to attractively allow brides to see our great service!

Our table holds all information on what we offer brides – leaflets, business cards, competition forms for exciting prizes and completed with soft candle lit lanterns and scattered stars for that extra sparkle.

We never tire of meeting new brides and they are genuinely in awe of the value we provide and the savings they can make, there’s no need for a sales pitch!

A fashion show is an extremely interesting addition at a wedding fair and we have been fortunate enough to partake in many over the last two years. Sometimes the venue will hire models for the fashion show and other times we supply our own experienced models.

We hold one or two meetings in the boutique to ensure our dresses fit the models perfectly and if not, which dresses require a nip/tuck here and there! We aim to choose a variety of styles and sizes and to give each dress a chance to get its day in the limelight. Once the dresses are finalised (which can take hours!!) each one is devotedly described in order of appearance they partake in the show.

The details are sent to the compère in advance of the show in order for them to familiarise with and liaise with us on any issues.

On wedding fair day, set up begins around two hours before kick-off, with all suppliers busily setting up their attractive stands before resting with a cuppa prior to opening.



With minutes to go to the fashion show, the models are secure in their first set of dresses, ready to show them off their to best potential.  An air of excitement coupled with the adrenaline keeps everyone pumped! Once the first run is complete, the pressure is on the models to undress and hurry into the next gown, not forgetting a veil or headpiece, but this is all part of the fast paced nature of a fashion show!

Couples attending one of our shows can expect to see an array of beautiful gowns, typically ten to twelve dresses will feature. It’s certainly an invaluable opportunity to see dresses come to life; they are so much prettier than sitting on a hanger!

The enormous effort from all suppliers to organise a wedding fair ensures that couples can gather all the important aspects of the big day under one roof.  They can gain fresh ideas and make informed decisions about their big day.  This makes it all worthwhile! 5pm comes too fast – time to pack up in anticipation of the next wedding fair – all in a day’s work!

Excerpt on Timeless Bridalwear published March 26th in The Meath Chronicle’s Inspire Magazine –

Lizzelle 022 (Large)

Is your dream wedding dress that cost a small fortune now a dishcloth or have you flogged it for little or nothing? An innovative, new bridal wear business in Trim is making sure that future and past brides all get to say ‘I do’.

Opened in early 2014, Timeless Bridal wear specialises in pre-loved dresses and is owned by mother and daughter team Lizelle and Adele Moran who are only “too aware of the exorbitant costs involved for a couple in advance of the big day”. They said: “Many brides pay thousands of euro to feel magical, elegant and beautiful and then the dress is zipped up in a bag and left in a wardrobe.

“We feel that this is such a shame so we set up Timeless Bridal wear to give stunning dresses another day to glow in the spotlight.” Offering an almost unique Irish service, Timeless is that “necessary link between a past and future bride”.

The duo will market, promote and advertise the dress for their client to get the sale and ensure that a new bride gets their dream dress at less than half the retail price.

“Many brides leave our boutique with a highend designer dress that they otherwise could not afford and with the sneaky possibility that they can now afford that extra week’s honeymoon,” they say.
