So what is a designer weekend?


It’s Designer Weekend Season here at Ivory & Pearl!  We’re hosting one every few weeks, and we’ve realized that lots of you ladies don’t really know what one entails.  So just what exactly IS a Designer Weekend???

Basically, a Designer Weekend just means we get lots of a designer’s wedding dresses for a weekend, and we are able to give a discount for those orders placed during the weekend.

Here’s an example:

The Naomi Neoh Designer Weekend is coming up at the end of March (29th-30th March 2014).  In the boutique on a normal day, we have about 8 wedding dresses by Naomi Neoh.  During the Designer Weekend, the designer sends us lots and lots of wedding dresses, sometimes the entire current collection! So if you go ga-ga over one of the Naomi Neoh wedding gowns, we give you up to 10% off if you place your order that weekend.  Woot Woot!  

On the 11th – 14th April 2014, we are also very, VERY excited to have the brand spanking new Claire Pettibone Still Life collection in the boutique. We are also big lovers of Claire Pettibone, and are super excited to see this collection in real life and on all you lovely brides! Ivory & Pearl are the sole stockist of Claire Pettibone in Northern Ireland, so you might find your dream dress that nobody else in Northern Ireland even has!

As well, as the designers we usually stock we are having one super duper special weekend, on the 21st-23rd March, as Ivory & Pearl are the first bridal boutique in Europe (!!!) to host a designer weekend for Cocoe Voci!! Take a nosey at their site

As these are special designer weekends, we like to give you a little longer to ‘ooo and ahhh’ over the dresses, so you’ll have up to an hour and fifteen to flounce around and twirl until your heart is content!

If there’s a Naomi Neoh or Claire Pettibone gown that you’ve been dying to try and we don’t have it in-store, let us know and we can request that it be sent their Designer Weekend.  Just make sure you give us enough time to make arrangements!

In a nutshell, we love Designer Weekends.  Come see what all the fun is about this season, book an appointment on: 02891871135 or by e-mailing
