A CONTEMPORARY BRIDAL GALLERY IN THE HEART OF KINSALE
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE WHITE & GOLD…
The White & Gold bridal gallery is for Ireland’s modern, cool brides. Located in the heart of Kinsale, Co.Cork, our showroom is opening in April 2019, The White & Gold has edited a collection of exclusive international wedding dress designers, the kind of dresses that will set your heart on fire!
We travelled to Australia, New York & London to liase with our favourite designers. The designer collections at The White & Gold challenge the mainstream bridal aesthetic. Our brides have their own sense of style and want to own their bridal look with a contemporary, yet timeless wedding dress. We are here to make sure that happens. We want your guests to not only describe your dress as beautiful but as “so you”.
We would love to share our collection with you during a relaxed one hour appointment in our luxury loft showroom. With over a decade of experience in the fashion industry, we will be there to offer you a bespoke fitting service – working towards creating an individual, bad-ass bridal look for your wedding day.
Located in Kinsale town, we are 30 minutes from Cork city, 20 minutes from Cork airport and a 2.5 hour drive from Dublin, with most of it being motorway. Kinsale is renowned for it’s culinary delights, why not make a day of it and get booked in for a bubbly lunch by the sea! We are happy to offer recommendations.
Frequently ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the price range of your designer collections?
Our made to order dresses range from €1800-€6,500, with most falling in the €2200-€3400 price bracket. We ask you to check out our designer collections and their price guidelines.
When should I begin shopping for my wedding dress?
We would reccommend you begin your dress search 9-12 months in advance of your wedding. Most of our designers have a 4-6 month lead time, as is the norm with most boutiques… so please allow yourself the comfort of a few months grace. We advise you to do your dress research through magazines and online, check out our designer collections and if you see some dresses you think might be THE ONE then get in touch to come try them on.
I've made my appointment, what happens next?
This is when the fun starts! You and your support crew join us for an intimate hour long fitting. We invite you to browse our carefully curated collection of international designer collections and pick out any favourites. Your crew then get to sit back and admire you while you try on your selection of favourite dresses. We please ask you to be very punctual, as some days can be very busy and we would not like to cut into your fitting time.
How many people can I bring with me?
We want you to be comfortable during your intimate fitting appointment. We ask you to keep your style advisors to a maximum of three people. This allows for our brides a little bit of headspace without the confusion of too many opinions.
Is there anything I should bring with me?
It is a good idea to bring some seamless underwear, a strapless bra
What size are your sample dresses and what sizes do you cater for?
The majority of our samples are a size 10-12. Most of our made to order dresses range from a size 6-16. If you fall outside the sample size please be assured that we have creative ways to ensure you can try your favourite dresses on and get a very important understanding of the fit and fabric of the dress.
I am shopping for bridal accessories only- do I still need an appointment?
I need to cancel or reschedule my appointment
This is absolutely no problem. If you need to cancel your appointment please contact us, when possible, at least 48 hours in advance of your appointment. We can only accommodate a small number of appointments a day and we appreciate your understanding in respecting this. If you need to reschedule please get in touch and we will do our very best to offer you a more suitable time. If an evening appointment would suit you better please drop us an email.
