    The loveliest team

    Had the most amazing experience working with Brittany of the Blush Bridal Team.
    I came into the store having a specific dress style in mind and left purchasing a dress was the complete opposite and yet, the most perfect dress for me.
    They were so kind, so helpful and did not rush us at all.
    It was also great having them pull different style dresses that I hadn't even thought of.
    It is such a shame that the owners are retiring as they carried some of the most unique brands that are not available anywhere else in Vancouver. They will truly be missed.

    Blush Bridal has beautiful gowns! Mine was amazing and I got it on sale so I was so happy! They didn't provide alterations but did provide me with the name of a woman they trust who I saw privately. I'd go back again!

    I had such an amazing experience here! Merina was absolutely the best! She gave me lots of advice as I was trying on different dresses (and believe me, I tried on A LOT) and helped me find The One. After I picked my dress, she offered to have a sample of my dress's fabric sent to me so I could bring to my other vendors when I'm planning the rest of the wedding (what a brilliant idea!). And she made sure all my appointments for alterations were set up well in advance so that I can have them done properly. Just the best experience ever!

    Blush has a great selection of dresses and although they range more on the pricier end, i would recommend to look there for fashion-forward brides. They sell Vera Wang along with many other designers! As for the service, the gals at Blush were extremely helpful when it came to sizing and everything!

    Blush Bridal and Special Occasions has the most beautiful selection of wedding gowns, bridesmaids and mother of the bride gowns, as well as accessories for all. I purchased my gown from them, and the whole experience was made to feel so special and SO fun. I worked mostly with Merina, but I also met Ashley and Brittany. I visited many different bridal boutiques, and while the dress is ultimately what pulled me back to Blush, there were other things that made the experience here so wonderful. The dresses that I tried on were in good condition and the salon was clean. Merina was helpful, responsive, and understanding. Buying a dress is an emotional process, and she was so sweet the whole time. Also, the salon did in-house alterations, and I loved who did mine and trusted her. This was the absolutely best choice for me.

    Most amazing dress store in Vancouver. I bought all my dresses here including my after party dress. Service was impeccable and I truly had a great experience buying my wedding dress here. It's not inexpensive, but the value was very good. Full services shop so they helped me with every step and even referred me to another store for jewellery, even though they sell jewellery. They truly care about their brides!

    Love everything about this bridal shop. Found the dress of my dreams here and felt treated like a princess. They go out of their way to help with everything you need and make it very personal and special. Their selection of dresses are some of the best in the city.

    I found my wedding dress during a sale Blush Bridal had and the discounted price of my dress was incredible! Some staff were very friendly and professional, while a couple were not as much. Despite, them not having very many staff working that night, they tried their best to be as attentive as possible while I was trying on several dresses. They even let me take photos of the dress I ended up choosing.

    I had an amazing experience buying my dress from Blush and would highly recommend them. I initially bought a dress from another store and due to unforeseen issues ended up without a wedding dress only 8 weeks before my wedding. I called Blush as soon as I found out about the problem and they fit me in for an appointment right away. When I arrived for my appointment Ashley had pulled all the dresses I could order within 8 weeks or buy off the rack and low and behold I found my dress (which I love so much more than the first dress)! I worked with both Ashley and Brittany and found them absolutely wonderful and I really felt that they genuinely wanted to ensure that I got a dress I loved and looked my best for my wedding. Throughout the whole process I felt that the staff at Blush were really looking out for my interests and wanted to make sure I was happy with everything and weren't just trying to sell me a dress which is what I found at some other stores.
