I can’t recommend Lorren enough. She went above and beyond for me and my bridesmaids. I got the most stunning bridesmaid dresses in her shop , I got so many compliments about how stunning the style and colour was and how they never seen bridesmaid dresses like it before. I was stressed leading up to the wedding and Lorren really went above and beyond , she done all the fittings for the bridesmaids around their schedules. And also done the fittings to my wedding dress. My dress fit like a glove. All my friends that have got engaged . I have highly recommend lorren and her stunning shop.

There are no words that could possibly describe how amazing Lorren is at the one I love dream dresses. Not only did she supply me with the most amazing dresses during the Rose of Tralee festival. She gifted me a beautiful white dress that I wore for night two after our wedding day. She made sure each dress fitted and if not she would make sure it was altered to perfection. Lorren you are such an amazing person and I am so happy I got to meet and work alongside with you ???? you deserve this award because you would go above and beyond for anyone, a heart of gold ?? I can't wait to visit your shop soon and definitely one I love dream dresses deserves so many votes ????

There is no words that could possibly describe how amazing Lorren is at the one I love dream dresses. My wedding dress I had bought did not fit me 6 weeks before my wedding and she got in touch as she wanted to help me. I’m so thankful she did, one cold wet Monday I was exhausted from trying on so many dresses and eventually was going to give up for the day and was half dressed when a dress fell off the hanger in the changing room and she went to see if it was upstairs in my size turned out the exact one that fell was my size and I put it on and I was so overwhelmed with emotion I just cried. It was perfect. Personally I feel this was my late Granny (who only passed 5 months ago) telling me just try this last one for me. It is a day I will never forget for as long as I live to have felt her presence there with me that day because my dear I missed her so much that day. Lorren deserves this award simply because of how much of an amazing, outstanding person she is. Not only is she amazing at what she does but she has the biggest heart I have ever come into contact with. PLEASE vote for the one I love dream dresses!

I can not recommend Lorren @ The One I Love highly enough!! All the dresses were absolutely stunning, my own dress was altered to perfection. Thanks to a recommendation from Lorren did 2 of the bridesmaids find their ideal dresses. Lorren was so helpful and accommodating with everyone in the bridal party, including groom and MOB with last minute alterations. She is a very calming and caring presence to be around on the run up to the wedding. The One I Love should be top on the list to visit for brides, their bridesmaids and flower girls.

I had the pleasure of getting a custom made dress made for me by the lovely talented Lorren. After having a bad experience in a previous bridal shop I was at abit of a loss and then I heard about The One I Love Bridal shop in Ballinlough. I contacted Lorren to arrange an appointment to go and see her. From the second I met Lorren I could tell how passionate she was about what she does. Not just passionate but very professional too. She has a gorgeous range of dresses to suit all shapes and sizes in store but after trying on a few I decided to go for a custom made dress. I had fittings every so often and my dream dress came to life that bit more each time. Lorren is extremely attentive and worked the fittings around days and times that suited me. On the day of our wedding I had so many compliments about the lace detail on my dress. I really did feel like a princess and Lorren was to thank for that. I would highly recommend her.

Lorren is absolutely amazing! I wasn't sure what type of dress I wanted at all as we were having a very small wedding and I didn't want a white dress, but still wanted "bridal". I went in to see Lorren and she asked me some questions about my ideas and pulled out several beautiful dresses for me to try on. I loved different aspects of each and Lorren then designed me my own completely unique dress! She carefully brought together the different aspects I loved to create the dress of my dreams. I had a few fittings while the dress was being created and in each booking Lorren made sure I was happy with everything and suggested tweaks here and there to make it even better. Even on the last fitting she asked if I wanted any final little changes but it was perfect. On the day of the wedding the dress was easy to put on by myself and was comfortable to wear all day. Nothing was too much effort, she really went above and beyond and I can't recommend The One I Love highly enough! Totally incredible for friendly service, value and quality.

This is a hidden gem in Ballinlough. Lorren was so pleasant to deal with and nothing was too much trouble for her. She gave great advice on sizing and ordering in the dresses on time. She also did the alternations on my hen dress (a fully sequin dress) which were perfect. Despite having a very busy schedule she was very responsive and attentive. Her main aim was to make sure the dresses were comfortable and fitted perfectly. My bridesmaids looked stunning on the day. We would highly recommend The One I Love Dresses!!

I cannot recommend Lorren highly enough. 'The One I Love' is a special find and Lorren is a gem herself! I had 4 bridesmaids, 2 overseas and one living in Dublin so I was worried how I was going to co-ordinate things. Lorren made the whole process stress-free and made sure the girls were comfortable in their dresses and of course that the dresses arrived on time. She also did the alterations which was great. Lorren really went above and way beyond her duty to make sure the dresses were perfect - thank you! She is such a pleasure to work with and is so responsive to any queries. Thanks again, Deirdre & Juliyan

From the moment myself and my bridesmaids entered Lorren's fab store in Ballinlough, we were made feel so welcome, relaxed and at home. There was never any hard sell, and Lorren's only priority was ensuring that each member of my bridal party would feel comfortable, confident and stunning in their dresses. Lorren felt much more like an old friend than a supplier, and she went above and beyond in so many ways to make sure everything was perfect. Ordering my bridesmaids dresses from The One I Love was one of the best decisions I made throughout the whole of the wedding planning process, and the service from Lorren was simply amazing.

What can I say, Lorren and her team at The One I Love are absolutely amazing at what they do. Lorren designed and made the perfect princess wedding dress for me. Her attention to detail was absolutely amazing. She also supplied me with gorgeous bridal shoes that she designed herself, the perfect shoe for my perfect dress. Not only did she make my dress but she also made my daughters flower girl dress, a mini me of my wedding dress. We were two princesses on their wedding day xx She also made my bridesmaid dress, in hot pink with fabulous embellishment, the perfect fit and looked gorgeous on her. All I can say is a big thank you, you made us all look beautiful, without doubt I would recommend The One I Love xx

I had the most amazing experience with Lauren during the preparation for our wedding. From a mere conversation about what my vision was for our two junior bridesmaids, she created the most beautiful dresses I have ever seen in a wedding party,each dress was made to perfection and each one was slightly different to suit the age and style of the girls. They absolutely stole the show! Nothing was a problem for Lauren,no matter how last minute any idea was,she just pulled everything together and given we all came down with covid 2 weeks before the wedding she pulled out ALL the stops to make us feel amazing on the day and indeed the lead up to it.The One I Love is an fantastic local business,the attention to detail is superb and I have already booked Lauren for my bridesmaid dress for a friends wedding in Toronto this Autumn!
Response from The One I Love
Thank you so much Louise, it was an honour to design for you!

Lorren was an absolute dream to work with. She was patient, kind, creative, insightful, professional and genuinely caring. I had only a rough idea of what I wanted when I first spoke to Lorren and she helped me narrow down options and find my perfect dress. Her work is flawless and she was so accommodating with fittings and viewings. We planned and had our wedding in the height of the pandemic and working with Lorren was seamless and easy, she sent regular pictures and video updates of the dress and different laces she was adding. She added details I requested without hesitation, she even had each of my bridesmaids and my mother sew a piece of lace onto my dress and took pictures of the process. It's a beautiful memory I'll treasure forever and I really appreciate her suggesting we do it. I couldn't have been happier with my dress, it was perfect and I couldn't recommend Lorren and The One I Love enough.

My sister got married in November 2020, and I went to The One I Love (during lockdown, by appointment) for advice about shoes. I don't wear high heels very often and neither does my sister, and we were both concerned about looking good but also feeling comfortable! Lorren recommended some beautiful jewel encrusted black heels for the bridesmaids, with a hidden front platform, and they were very comfortable for the duration of the wedding. My sister settled for a pair of white lace runners for after the photos, and they were a saviour on the day! Lorren also made my sisters incredible custom-made wedding dress using so many layers of lace, but still managing to make the dress look light and flattering. She was stunning and felt so pretty and confident in the dress. The little customised details which were my mam's idea, were able to be added in very easily. My sister wanted a dress that she could move easily in, as she has a toddler and she wanted to be able to dance and run around after her daughter on the day. I can't recommend Lorren and The One I Love as a shop enough, as a service and as an experience it is the best you can get. I've never been in any other shop that made me feel so special, accommodated our needs, matched our budgets, and exceeded all our expectations. I can't wait for Lorren to make my own wedding dress someday! Even as a bridesmaid, I found Lorren so helpful with ideas and suggestions. She gives all of her customers such a lovely experience that people return to her again and again, knowing that they will be valued, and accommodated to the highest standards, and with a lovely smile too!

A huge thank you to Lorren and her team for creating such a special experience when choosing a gown, this combined with their quality selection, chosen with their customers special requirements in mind makes this a strong recommendation. Also great for alternations.

Lorren couldn’t do enough to help us. My dress was so beautiful and comfortable and stood up to some serious dancing. She did my bridesmaids’ dresses too and they look just perfect. The consultation and fitting process was fantastic and the care and attention to detail second to none.

Lorren made me the most beautiful dress I've ever seen! I'm so happy with it. It made the day, I felt so comfortable and gorgeous. And my bridesmaids dresses were divine! They were like floaty angels at my side, complimented my dress perfectly. And she was so sweet and helpful through the whole process, she understood exactly what I wanted, and she made it happen. She made me feel like an absolute princess on the day!
