    I also would like to know about this! This was the bridal store I was going to go too first when I start trying gowns.

    They are fabulous!  The girls there are super helpful, especially when you don't know what kind of dress you want.  I'm about 90% sure that I'll order my dress there but I wanted to check out places like the Brides' Project and 2 fashion designers that can custom make a dress.

    They did my best friend's wedding dress and all alterations were free - she had to have it shortened, the torso fixed and bustled because it had a train - all covered there.  I believe they've won the Brampton People's Choice awards for the last 6 or 7 years or even more.

    i didn't buy my dress from them because they didn't carry the particular designer, but i found Debbie to be very helpful. the customer service was great.

    i am getting my dress from there. Im going back next week to purchase it. I agree with above comments, very helpful.  What I liked about them is that they showed me a catalog of all the dresses they carry (about 300).  If you know the style and shape of what you want you will get through that catalog very quickly (took me less than 5 mins).  And I found IT!!!!!!!! Hopefully all goes well

    I bought my dress there.  My MOH also used to work there.  They were super friendly and patient with me even though I came into the store three times, basically to try on the same dress.

    My only issue with them was their sizing.  Their sample sizes seem a bit small to me, with most dresses being a 10.  I wear a 12 and consider myself average (I'm athletic, but with a large chest and butt).

    I think the price was awesome and would recommend them.

    That's good to know cause I have no idea where to start looking. I have been to one bridal store and they weren't very helpful. They stuck me in a fitting room and left me to try on dresses and didn't help me get into dresses. Also when the sales lady would leave the room she never closed the curtin all the way so anyone could see into the fitting room.

    Thank you! I figured the dresses would be the same, I just wanted to make sure someone was happy with the quality of the alterations!! Good to know - thank you!
  • I didn't end up buying my dress from there, but did try on a number of dresses there.  They were super helpful and did offer to help me into the dress and lace me up if needed.  I went during the week when they were slow and they offered me their full attention without any pressure to buy. 
    Great service.
