Montreal is a mecca for wedding dress shopping, with something for every bride, at every budget. Here’s where to find the best stores in and around the Montreal area
Finding the perfect wedding dress is a tricky task – but the sheer number of fantastic wedding dress stores in Montreal means you’re guaranteed to find the dress of your dreams.
From flagship designer stores to independent boutiques, from timeless classics to contemporary couture, and whatever your budget, there’s something for every bride.
If you’re after a beaded Jenny Packham gown that would make Kate Middleton envious or a vintage-inspired dress, we can help you find exactly what you’re looking for.
And not all wedding dresses are white! We’ve seen dresses in almost every colour. And what about this floral wedding dress that Briony wore for her day?! Beautiful, right?
Or this gorgeous dress that Dominique chose for her marriage to Matt?
This black wedding dress that Janis wore for her elopement with Ethan is also absolutely amazing and so unique. Doesn’t she look fantastic?
We also loved this stunning dress that Maud-Laure wore for her wedding at a private chalet in Bolton, Quebec.
We know that saying yes to a wedding dress can be both exciting and slightly terrifying. It’s going to be part of your big day, after all. And while most brides may have an idea of what they want their wedding dress to look like, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by all the options.
So, we asked brides which wedding dress stores they’d be happy to recommend to their friends. We then asked wedding vendors for the dress shops they thought were the best in the Montreal area, and we compiled a list of what we believe are the best wedding dress stores in Montreal.
We asked each store to tell us more about their services and, of course, to share their designs.
