The Best Bridesmaid Dresses in Toronto

Posted by Robyn Urback / July 16, 2012

bridesmaid dresses torontoThe best bridesmaid dresses in Toronto will likely see more than one night out. While not all of these stores on this list specialize in wedding wear, there is a noteworthy lack of ruffles and seafoam among the crowd. Yes, the wedding season is well underway, and last-minute brides-to-be are scurrying to clothe their wedding party pals. And as every veteran bridesmaid knows, this is not always an easy task (especially when all the maids are expected to sport the exact same dresses). Hopefully these stores will help to ward off those nearing-nuptial nervous breakdowns.

Here are the best shops for bridesmaid dresses in Toronto.

Pink Tartan/Seventy Seven

Pink Tartan/Seventy Seven

It’s those classic shapes, bold colour options, and sophisticated styles that have made Pink Tartan a consistent catwalk champ. And that same recipe will ensure that a bridesmaid dress from flagship shop Seventy Seven won’t offer a one-time wear. In the heart of Yorkville (of course) Kim Newport-Mimran’s polished dress designs have won over even the most discerning brides (as long as her maids are chipping in on the bill, that is). More »

Champagne and Cupcakes

Champagne and Cupcakes

Now at its new location slightly east of its old haunt, Champagne and Cupcakes is touting its same affordable dresses (i.e. under $200) perfectly suited to more girly bridal parties. You’ll find this shop plush with halters and soft prints, along with the odd frill and bow decorating its mostly cocktail-length dresses. Mustn’t eat too many cupcakes before the wedding. More »

Jealous Bridesmaids

Jealous Bridesmaids

Probably the best-named shop on this list, Jealous Bridesmaids has gowns for brides and maids alike. The west-end shop carries lines by designers such as Enzoani, Mia Solano, Nill Levkoff, and The Dessy Group, along with lots of jewellery and accessories. Unlike the above three stores, Jealous Bridesmaids caters specifically to brides and maids, so a request of six of a single style won’t throw the team off guard. More »

White Toronto

White Toronto

White Toronto is where you go for a bridesmaid dress when cost is but an afterthought (or so says its reputation). The Yorkville shop offers ambiance as much as actual dresses, with bridesmaid labels that include Alfred Sun, Jenny Yoo, Lela Rose, and Sarah seven. While White’s window might boast a five-figure Oscar in the window, you may be able to find some styles that are actually in your price range. More »

Anne Hung

Anne Hung

For elegant draping and long lines, Anne Hung might be your bridesmaid stop. The Queen West shop features dresses of mostly classic cuts, meaning there’s a high chance you might actually please everyone in your bridal party. Unheard of, I know. Most styles are priced in the $100 to $300 range, and many are available in multiple colours. More »

Two Birds Bridesmaid

Two Birds Bridesmaid

Two Birds Bridesmaid is perhaps the best choice for a group of finicky bridesmaids (as if there is any other kind…). The dresses offered at this Queen West upper-level shop can be customized by colour, length, and style, and many of them can be worn in a variety of different ways (ie. 15!). Dresses cost around $300 to $600, but since they’re all made of a jersey blend fabric, alterations likely won’t be required. More »

Girl Friday

Girl Friday

Girl Friday may be somewhat new to the bridesmaid collection game, though Toronto friends of the to-be-wedded have long explored its racks for outfits. Now with a dedicated bridal collection, Girl Friday offers many sleek, simple, and pocketed (good for tissues during the ceremony) cocktail-length dresses, most of which are available in up to 17 colours. Most of these dresses ring in modestly at around $150. More »

Cabaret

Cabaret

Cabaret is a first pick for brides looking to bring a little nostalgia to their nuptials. For a little mix-and-match among the bridesmaids, Cabaret has plenty of vintage cocktail dresses and evening gowns, most of which are priced in the $300 to $400 range. Just remember that what you see if what you get, and keep your fingers crossed for a few good finds without fighting among the maids. More »

Ritche Bridal

Ritche Bridal

In the industry for more than six decades, Ritche certainly knows how to best serve a bride and her gown-seeking accomplices. Its store on Avenue Road offers more than six hundred bridesmaid styles, with dresses by Alfred Angelo, After Six, Mori Lee and more at all different price points. No appointment necessary for bridesmaids, and almost too many options to choose from. More »

Chris and Tina’s Bridal Boutique

Chris and Tina’s Bridal Boutique

You’ll have to head out to Scarborough for this one, but your trip with reward you with a wealth of bridesmaid options with considerable wealth still left in your pocket. Gowns here range from about $150 to $300, and include collections by Alfred Sung, Dessy, and Belsoie. As with most major bridal shops, bridesmaid dresses here are available in a huge range of sizes and can be ordered in a whole range of colours. More »

TNT

TNT

Try not to lose your maids in this one. Just gingerly guide them past the Rag and Bone jeans and punk Chaser tees, and hone in on TNT's ultra-fashionable formal wear finds. The dresses you'll find here are anything but ordinary, from retro-style Alice & Olivia's to runway-ready Ana Maria Couture. Count on spending at least a few hundred here. More »

Hmmmm... Jealous Bridesmaids? I would say AVOID. I ended up having to deal with the owner, after an incorrect order. The staff would not take any responsibility, the owner was useless, and the selection was over priced and poor in style and quality at best.

I have never had a problem at a resturaunt, retailer, bar, anything. EVER.

It was beyond shocking. I am suprised they are on BLOG TO's radar.
