Thanks a million Gay for my fabulous wedding dress, bridesmaids dresses and flowergirl, I absolutely loved them.


I found Gay at De Paor Designs a delight to deal with. I wore one of her tea length gowns for my wedding day. She was very helpful and professional to deal with. My dress was exactly what I asked for and it was so comfortable to wear and reasonably priced. I had in mind a vintage style gown when planning our wedding and I saw Gay’s designs in the Irish Wedding Diary and as soon as I saw them I knew she was the lady to make my dress, her designs were so eye catching. I did a number of fittings to ensure that the gown was made to my measurements and it was the most comfortable dress to wear. I even had her make my baby’s christening gown which was another beautiful design.I would definitely recommend her work to future brides

It was really my dream dress and I received so many compliments during and long after the day itself. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Gay .

I don’t think there are words to describe Gay and the wonderful dresses she creates for her brides. Gay had made my debs dress and after doing the mandatory dress shopping day in town and gaining no inspiration it felt only right to return to Gay for my perfect dress. Gay has such a knowledge of shapes and styles to suit every bride and I was at ease from the moment I walked into her studio. She listened to my ideas, my likes and dislikes and created my ultimate dream dress. I will never be able to thank her enough. Her attention to detail and general advice will stay with me forever. If you are looking for a truly bespoke, unique and made to measure dress you cannot go wrong with De Paor Designs. Thank you for making my dream dress and headpiece a reality.

Gay is an absolute professional at what she does and was such a pleasure to deal with. From the moment I met Gay in her studio and tried on a selection of dresses, I knew that she would make me the dress of my dreams. My search was over for the perfect tea length dress. She designed the most beautiful bespoke dress for me which was the talk of the day among guests. I would have no hesitation in recommending Gay to any future bride.

Cannot recommend De Paor Designs highly enough. Gay is a complete professional with a wide range of absolutely beautiful gowns to suit all styles and at very reasonable prices. She is so pleasant and accommodating and my fittings were always fun enjoyable occasions – completely relaxed, never rushed. My wedding dress was absolutely perfect for me – I would not have changed a thing about it. Brides-to-be, make sure you pay a visit to De Paor Designs!

I bought my dress from Gay last year. I picked my dress back in 2013 and I went back to her in 2014 to order my wedding dress. From the beginning Gay was really helpful and professional. Gay knows what styles suit ladies body shapes and sizes and was brilliant at recommending dresses. I chose a 50’s style tea length dress and it was so comfortable to wear on the day and if it was possible I would wear it again. I would recommend Gay to any future brides to be. I was an enjoyable experience from choosing the dress to collecting it when it was finished and wearing it on my wedding day.
