    Exceptional Service & Atmosphere

    Out of all the bridal shops visited, my ladies and I felt the most comfortable at Helen's Bridal. They exceeded all of our expectations.
    The selection is on par with some of the larger bridal stores in Toronto, and if they don’t have what you are looking for will work with you to find alternatives or get your style in from the designer. They helped me feel comftorable and made sure I was confident in my decision. I never felt pressured or rushed. As well, their seamstress Stacey, is a miracle worker.
    Thank you!!

    Helen’s Bridal is the best bridal shop by far. I will forever recommend Helen’s because you will not find better service or friendlier people who love their job anywhere else. And the range and selection of dresses is phenomenal as well as their prices.

    Amazing Bridal Boutique

    Last Saturday I went wedding dress shopping at Helen’s. I had such an amazing experience! My consultant Viola was incredible and very attentive! They truly know how to make you feel special! From the moment my group walked in we were made to feel welcome and comfortable, plus the selection is great. My group were able to sit comfortably on black couches as I tried on dresses. I can’t wait to go back and pickup my dress!

    Wonderful Experience

    I was able to share my bridal experience with Helen's Bridal, and it was so amazing. The staff there are incredibly relaxed (because wedding dress sopping is intenseee), knowledgeable, patient and kind. I had the most wonderful time trying on dresses, and was lucky enough to find 'the one'! I always felt welcome returning to the store to visit my dress, and eventually for alterations. The environment and staff at Helen's Bridal are spectacular and I highly recommend going into the store for wedding and formal wear :)
