We are Ivory Bridal, one of the North Coast’s longest running, award-winning bridal boutiques. We’ve been in The Diamond in Portstewart for 13 years now (luckily we aren’t too superstitious!!), with a change of ownership in 2017.

We always ask our brides how they found us….9 times out of 10, the answer is: “I’ve passed your shop window so many times and always wanted to find my wedding dress there”.

Our main aim for brides who book in with us is to go above and beyond to live up to our reputation for impeccable customer service and to help you find the wedding dress of your dreams..


We understand how daunting the search for your wedding dress can be.  

There is certainly no shortage of bridal shops in Northern Ireland and there are so many beautiful dresses to choose from so it can be difficult to know where to start your dress shopping journey.

We aim to take the stress out of the dress search and help you every step of the way.

As a family-run boutique, we pride ourselves on making you feel welcome from the moment you step through our door, as well as ensuring that you can confidently say that you feel like the very best version of Y-O-U when you step into your dress on your wedding day.

What To Expect From Your Bridal Appointment


We operate by appointment only to ensure that you and your bridal party have exclusive use of our luxurious first floor bridal suite.  

We take some time at the beginning of your appointment to chat through your wedding plans to understand the overall feel of your wedding.  If you haven’t got as far as planning your wedding down to the last napkin holder before coming to us, don’t worry! Our newest team member, Hayley, is an Event Decor Specialist and loves to chat all things wedding-related!

Once we have got an idea of where you are in your dress shopping journey, we assist you in selecting 6-8 gowns from our gorgeous collection to try on.

The next part is where the magic happens and you get to strut your stuff in front of our floor-to-ceiling mirror and find “the one”. 

Saying Yes To The Dress

We consider it to be a privilege to be part of your wedding planning journey.  We are on hand with a wealth of experience (as well as tissues for happy tears) to help you have your “yes” moment and create memories of a dress shopping experience that you will remember for years to come.

Your bridal journey doesn’t just end when you’ve found your dress though.  When you find your dress in Ivory Bridal, we look forward to welcoming you back to the boutique for a styling session when your dress arrives, to accessorise your gown and help you narrow down the finer details of your final bridal look.

We also invite you back to the boutique for a complimentary bridesmaids styling session, with an exclusive 10% discount on all purchases after saying “yes” to your dress.
