    Amazing Experience!

    I was in search of a specific wedding dress brand that is only carried (in winnipeg) at Stellas. I was a frequent visitor of the shop since my wedding isn't until November 2021 and each time, Ally and the rest of the staff were amazing and never once pressured me and dealt with me patiently while trying on almost all the dresses in the brand I was looking for and letting me know ASAP when the trunk show I was waiting for what scheduled. I finally said yes to my dress and I couldn't have been more happy with my experience so far!

    Stella's Bridal & Evening Collections's reply:

    Hi Kimberly!

    Thank you so much for taking the time to review us. We're very luck to have Ally as part of our team and appreciate that you have included us in your wedding by finding the one at Stella's. You are going to knock everyone's socks off when you walk down the aisle in your gorgeous dress!

    Kindest regards,

    Stunning dresses

    The collection of dresses available at Stella’s is everything a girl could hope for. Being a plus size woman I was very nervous I wouldn’t be able to find anything to try on and was nervous I wouldn’t find a dress. I was wrong I tried on over 15 dresses the consultant also brought different styles I was not considering and surprised me with how I liked them. I found my perfect dream dress with Stella’s and would recommend them to anyone! The staff is friendly and make you feel comfortable!

    Excellent experience

    I bought my dress in July at Stella's. They were incredibly helpful. They let me choose a bunch of dresses that caught my eye. Once I tried them on they thoughtfully picked out other gowns based on what I liked about the dresses I chose. I ended up with a dress I never thought I would have liked but I am so happy I found the one with their help.

    Stella's Bridal & Evening Collections's reply:

    Hi Kelly,

    Thanks so much for allowing us to be part of your day. You chose a beautiful gown and Deena was thrilled to have been the one to help find it for you. On a side note it's also a personal favourite of mine! Congratulations from all of us at Stella's!

    Kindest regards,

    The Best of the Best

    Stella’s is the best place to shop for wedding and bridesmaids dresses! I had the pleasure of working with Caitlin for my shopping experience and she is so kind and attentive and made the experience very easy. All my girls loved her as well! Stella’s is the best!

    Stella's Bridal & Evening Collections's reply:

    Tess!

    You were an absolute pleasure to work with and running into you on your wedding day and getting a pic with you was the best thing we've experienced this year! There's nothing better than realizing the vision our brides have and I remember so clearly doing it with you! Thanks a million for sharing your experience with us!

    On behalf of Caitlin and myself we wish you all the best in your future!
    Kindest regards,
    DeeDee

    Perfect A-line bridal dress, thank you Stella's in Winnipeg, MB, Canada!

    Ah the wedding dress, always a classic special moment for a bride, which was my experience with Stella's Bridal. I would like to say a big thank you to Stella's Bridal for helping me find my gorgeous wedding dress! I never thought an A-line dress would be for me, as I went in looking for more mermaid style but I felt beautiful in my gown by Rebecca/Maggie Sottero. Although alternations were not cheap at Stella’s, I was very happy with the fit of my dress and straps. Gorgeous colours and selection at Stella's too, highly recommend.

    So friendly

    I had a great experience shopping for my dress here. Brynn was so much fun and helpful. They also have me tips on where to buy a cheaper belt. I ordered my veil separate from my dress so it came later and they were supposed to call me when it got in. However it was a month away from my wedding and I had to call them to see if it was there and it sounded as if it had been there for awhile. Not a big deal, just why they got a lower score

    Stella's Bridal & Evening Collections's reply:

    Hi Monica,

    We appreciate your feedback and will take your comments to heart and make sure we do better going forward. That photo of you and your husband is so beautiful and heart-warming. Thanks for finding the one at Stella's!

    Best wishes,
    DeeDee

    Good store to hit in the city

    This was a quick choice place as I had very limited time to get a dress. They were helpful in letting me try different things but would have been nicer if they had asked more about the wedding to ensure I was only trying things I could get in time.

    Wedding Dress

    This boutique was great to work with, from part and full time staff, everyone who helped me find my dress was great! They were easy to schedule my fittings with and were not pushy when it came to choosing a dress, they let me do it on my own terms with no pressure.

    Best experience I had

    They responded to message on Facebook very quickly and I was able to make an appointment efficiently. When I was there the staff was very helpful and very nice, the shop is very beautiful, clean and the staff will help you choose dresses within your price range.
