    Amazing staff

    I had been to a bridal shop the week before I went here and had an awful experience. We decided to get married 4 months before our date so I was on a bit of a time constraint and I was a little worried as a plus sized person. However, I went in and the staff were AMAZING. Taylor helped by pulling every dress in my size that we could get before our date and was so patient as I tried them all on and gave her input as well. I was able to find my dream dress that was off the rack needing no alterations and felt so incredibly happy and thankful for Taylor and this store. Would highly recommend!

    Best experience

    I was very excited to be able to finally go dress shopping.
    When I was ready to shop at the end of March, everything shut down due to Covid-19. I was in contact with Olga via email with questions knowing you should shop for your dress at least 6 to 8 months before the wedding date. My wedding was to take place October 2020. Olga guided me to the website and said to take a look at the selection and to book an appointment when things opened up.

    I went on the website and book a potential appointment in June. Then I notice that they had a VIP Package, so I book one at the Barrie location. Let me tell you it is worth it. Having the store to ourselves for 2 hours before the store open was great.

    When my girls and I arrived for the appointment, Taylor greeted us with a smile. She went through the pricing system and the selections on each rack. This was extremely helpful.

    I went with a specific dress in mind. I had a picture from Best for Brides website. When I showed Taylor, she informed me they did not have that particular one, but she pulled a dress from the same designer with the same type of bodice, just without sleeves. I let my bridesmaids loose and they chose a variety of dresses for me. After trying the bundle of dresses that were pulled, it came down to 2. The one I ended up choosing was the one Taylor pulled right at the beginning.

    Taylor was very knowledgeable, courteous, friendly and she took the time to get to know me, which made me feel comfortable throughout the appointment. When it comes time for my bridesmaids to shop for their dresses, they have told me they want Taylor to be the consultant.

    I am a plus size and it was very nice that they had a variety of plus size dresses available to try on. It made my day as I could envision myself in the dress on my wedding day.

    I highly recommend Best for Brides as well as their VIP Package. You will not be disappointed.

    Great experience!

    Taylor was such a great help to me. I was looking for something very simple, which is difficult to find, and she worked very hard to recommend dresses that I may like. Overall it was an amazing experience and I highly recommend it!

    1st and only trip

    Best for bride is amazing, I went there for my first trip and only had to try on 5 dresses till I found the one. My consultant Susan listened to what I liked and didn't like and helped me find the dress I love...within my budget!

    Best experience in all of Barrie

    I received help from Rose who patiently listened and helped me find my dream dress within my budget. They kindly hosted myself, my mom, mother-in-law as well as 4 bridesmaids without it being an issue.

    My Cinderella

    Best for Bride was where we went just to try on dress styles. Ended up finding my dream dress. Paid very little for it, but found the staff to ignore you a lot when you were in the store. Kinda like you were wasting their time.

    It was an amazing experience!! All was very friendly and welcoming

    Sabrina was my consultant, she was very honest, helpful and friendly. She picked the perfect dress for me and it was less than I expected it to pay for my perfect dress. Thanks Sabrina for making my day and experience perfect!!

    Excellent!

    Although I did not purchase my mother of the groom outfit at this store because I did not give myself sufficient time to order in, the service was excellent! The staff was very helpful and personable. I would highly recomment it.
