Loved my dress
A wonderful boutique with tons of options. They were great at taking my inspo pics and figuring out fits and designers that would work based on my photos. Recommend booking your fitting appointment ahead of time.Sent on 20/04/2021

Perfect bridesmaid dresses
My bridesmaids bought their dresses from promises and lace. I was extremely worried because Covid hit and things got shut down while waiting for the dresses to come. They assured my bridesmaids that they would come and without fail they did the dresses look stunning a beautiful blue and great detail on the back. We did not alter the dresses rather the girls took their dresses to have them altered elsewhere. As the bride I felt a little snubbed by the women who work there because I did not purchase my wedding dress from them however they did treat the bridesmaids very sweet. The dresses came on time and looked beautiful so I was happy.Sent on 19/11/2020

Very Accommodating and Friendly
I recommend checking out even if you have a budget in mind. Then dresses here were mostly above my price range, but the owner was able to accommodate me and provide me with a sample dress that was within my budget. After a few fittings I said yes to the perfect dress! The staff and service are excellent and the store is a beautiful too. It was overall a great experience!Sent on 03/10/2020

From the moment my family and I stepped into the store, the staff at Promises and Lace were so kind, patient and accommodating. The owner Lynn was exceptionally helpful, going above and beyond to ensure I was completely satisfied and happy with my purchase. She is one of the most genuine and kindhearted people I've ever met. Their customer service and selection of dresses are amazing. So glad I came here, highly recommended!Sent on 08/11/2019

We had a great experience wedding dress shopping here. Our stylist pulled dresses that were exactly what I thought I wanted but also pulled dressed that she thought would look good on my body type. We ended up going with one she picked! We had the option of buying off the rack to save money which was also appreciated. I got my dress altered in store and my mother also got hers altered there and both turned out perfect. Would recommend.Sent on 03/11/2019

The team feels like family!
Carole and the team at Promises and Lace made us feel like family from the moment we walked in the door. Anna (our seamstress) worked tirelessly to ensure my dress was pictured perfect and just how I wanted it. This team will do what’s needed to ensure you find your perfect dress and you are happy!!
The only issue we ran into was with the owner (Lynn) as there seemed to be a miscommunication with the staff who ensured me my dress would be in by July, when truly the delivery date was over a month later. Everything worked out but I was made to feel like I was in the wrong and that’s stressful as a bride who’s 6 weeks out from her wedding with zero communication from the owner as to status.Sent on 19/10/2019

Rude and pretentious
I brought in a headpiece from another store to try on with a dress, it was thrown around and uncared for my the sales associates, I had to untangle all the snags they put in it. Looking for a dress they were rude and acted like it was a burden to be helping me. I highly do not recommend this store. Unless your spending +++money or buying multiple dresses your not good enough to shop here.Sent on 05/09/2019

Exceptional experience ( amazing staff)
oWhat can I say to express the joy and profoundly wonderful experience we had while seeking out not 1 but 2 Wedding Dresses for a ceremony both in Italy and in Niagara On The Lake! Carol from the get go was most knowledgeable, fun, honest and totally professional. Every step of the process was a pleasant and memorable time spent. Carol and the owner Lynn's whole focus was on listening to what was needed and with no pressure. Each dress was very different and pricing very competitive. we found that we were always looking forward to seeing Carol and Lynn when we had an appointment. At Promises & Lace they know their stuff and are extremely positive, helpful and most importantly "REAL"! In fact we plan to stop by close to Christmas for a "catch up" visit. If you are getting married and want a truly fantastic experience with all the bells & whistles.....then make an appointment with Promises and Lace.....they made the difference!!!Sent on 28/11/2018

a stressful experience
The purchasing of my dress for my wedding was a fine experience. I would say I have no issues with that. BUT that could be because I found THE dress downtown and wanted to purchase closer to home, so I came to the store with a purpose.Sent on 15/10/2018
Although this could seem somewhat unreasonable, I had an absolute struggle of a time with having my alterations done at P&L. They were painful and extremely frustrating. No one would listen to me, the dress was much too big when I picked it up and even bigger on my wedding day somehow? I eventually threw in the towel since I was treated by staff like I didn’t know what I was looking at.... even though not ONCE did anyone look up the gallery of how the dress looked on the designers website. And no one would listen to my requests or inquiries on how I wanted to look in the dress ...
I’m no model by any means; but there are seams and natural lines that are able to be transposed to other body types!
It was one of the worst experiences during the wedding process and caused extreme levels of stress and anxiety knowing I would feel like trash in my dress given that the fit was unflattering and unjust to the total vision I had for the big day.
Ladies, I would say go ahead and buy your dress there if the price is right but if you have an actual shape to you (hourglass, pear, whatever ... I would caution you doing your alterations at P&L since there is no level of collaboration and they really just want to raise a hem & cut some straps - they will avoid any monumental adjustments hence why my dress looked... MEH on my big day.

Unfriendly & Rude
My soon to be mother-in law was treated with disrespect and rudely. The sales staff openly commented on our heritage, culture and race.Sent on 12/03/2018
The prices were competitive and there was a large selection. However the service was inexcusable and shocking.
