Our Story 


Lilac Rose was created in 2011 as Donna Kennedy and husband David embarked on a wet, soggy caravan holiday in the South East of Ireland. Reflecting on the difficulty experienced in sourcing Donna’s own wedding dress, the couple decided to bring beautiful and uniquely styled wedding gowns and accessories to brides who were looking for a little quirk. Equipped with excellent customer service skills, an eye for beautiful bridal couture and joyful memories of their vintage wedding, Donna and David opened Lilac Rose Bridal Shop in April 2013 shortly after their wedding in Castle Oliver, Co. Limerick.

In 2018, Éadaoin Tivenan Mackessy joined the Lilac Rose Bridal team as a full-time Bridal Stylist after a period in London completing her Masters there. A few years later, at the end of 2022, Éadaoin was honoured to be asked by Donna to become the new owner of Lilac Rose Bridal.
