Here are the best bridal stores in Toronto.
Nestled in Leslieville this modern bridal boutique has a very carefully curated selection of gowns that range from $1,800-$6,000.

Gowns by Jim Hjelm, Hayley Paige, Robert Bullock and more are all available for the perusal of you and your group, allowing for an involved experience for all.
Looking for something unique and have an unlimited budget? White might just be your first stop in Toronto. But don't let that deter you from dropping by if you have a more modest budget, the team there is happy to find dresses at a number of different price points with some gowns retailing for under $750, but most fitting in the $5,500 to $6,000 range. With big names like Monique Lhuillier, Jenny Packham, Marchesa and Oscar De La Renta, get ready to enjoy an array of stunning gowns.
Not only a shop for bridal gowns, LoversLand also offers a variety of other items from cake toppers to swimwear and a number of fashionable items in-between. This Ossington shop offers a beautiful space where brides are likely to find the most unique gowns in the city from designers like For Love and Lemons, Ganni and Mira Mandic that range from $1,200 to $6,000. Appointments are recommended but walk-ins are welcome.
Brides who are in the market for a custom gown need look no further than Lea-Ann Belter. With a wide range of beautiful designs, the Toronto designer has continued to grow in popularity and is now available in bridal salons across North America. With stunning fabrics and intricate details, Lea-Ann Belter gowns are known for their high quality and beauty. Prices start around $2,500.
Ferre Sposa offers a simple and comfortable environment. The dressing rooms are large, well lit and have a pedestal with perfectly placed mirrors to ensure you get a great glimpse of yourself in all your bridal glory. The selection is sizable, with names such as Allure, Anjolique and Kenneth Winston, and the shopping experience is easy. The selection covers a variety of budgets from under $1,000 and up.
Unlike the other shops on this list, The Brides' Project has the unique distinction of including previously worn gowns amongst their selection. With the admirable policy of contributing all profits to support cancer charities, shopping at The Brides' Project adds another dimension of positivity to the bridal experience. Gowns range in price from $100 to $1,250 and come from designers such as Pronovias, Maggie Sottero and Paloma Blanca.
Not unlike its American counterpart, Kleinfeld's has a significant selection of gowns at a broad range of price points starting at $1,500. The experience is a serious business here as individual consultants work with you to pull gowns from designers like Amsale, Carolina Herrera, Lazaro and the ever-popular Pnina Tornai. Dressing rooms are reasonably sized but the fun comes when you step out to your group and jump up on the pedestal to show off your gown.
Now located in a larger space near High Park to accommodate an even broader selection, Jealous Bridesmaids is a great spot for those looking to find affordable gowns in the $1,000 to $2,500 range. Contrary to what the name might suggest, this shop is not just for bridesmaids; it carries gowns from designers like Casablanca Bridal, Pronovias and Essense of Australia.
Brides looking for a completely custom look from a team that specializes in ornate and intricate details can head to Whyte Couture where each gown is custom fit and tailored. The Yorkville salon, run by designer mother and daughter team Francesca and Jaclyn, provide truly one-of-a-kind pieces to each bride. With each gown being a custom piece, expect prices to be reflective of that.
Though it is a smaller salon with a smaller selection, Dina Alonzi still manages to provide a comfortable and enjoyable environment - just let their staff help you pick out options. Gowns start around $4,000 from designers such as Alvina Valenta, Le Spose Di Gio, Rivini and Amsale. Fitting rooms are on the smaller side, but provide a cozy experience for all involved as long as you leave the huge entourage behind.
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. Dressing rooms are on the smaller side, so ensure you bring a smaller group. Gowns range from $1,500 to $4,000, and represent labels such as Watters, Rosa Clara and Anne Barge.
