Felichia Bridal

Felichia Bridal

This Little Italy boutique provides brides with a beautiful but relaxed bridal shopping experience as parties are left to explore gowns on their own prior to working with a consultant.

Lowon Pope

Lowon Pope

The wife and husband duo of Lana Lowon and Jim Pope are the names behind this Liberty Village bridal salon where gowns are designed and made in Canada.

Prices range from $1,000 to $2,500 for an off-the-rack design, to $2,500 and up for a made-to-measure gown. More »

Got my wedding dress here 13 yrs ago. The owner actually brought in a dress I saw in a magazine which she did not carry and no other shop carried. I paid $100 to have it shipped for me from Vancouver to try on a sample. I don't think any other dress shop would of done this. Was very happy with it and ended up buying it.

You are definitely missing Belo Fashion Boutique on Roncy just north of Howard Park. The owners go out of their way to get you what you want and what you need. They carry dresses for your complete bridal party.

You missed out Papilio Boutique on St Clair West. This shop has some of the most exquisite wedding gowns I've ever seen. Great, very personal service and good prices!

If you're thinking of having a custom gown created for your big day I would highly recommend Valencienne in Forest Hill, conveniently located right near the Eglington station stop. Kim and her team create CUSTOM wedding gowns, evening dresses, bridal party attire and formal wear the way dresses are supposed to be made. No one puts as much detail and effort into a dress these days like Valencienne does.

I purchased my wedding dress from here and it was the best decision I ever made. Kim is amazing and you won't regret it!

Exquisite white dress.White attire is amazingly versatile.In summer, white shading dresses made of cotton are preferable as they are cool and lightweight.My most loved colour in dresses is white and usually like to wear white dress.
