    Great Experience!

    We had a great experience here shopping for my daughter's bridal gown. Brit was fantastic and great to work with, full of energy and lots of smiles. The centre is well laid out, and the gowns....lots of selection and so pretty. After a half dozen or so different dresses she went with the original one she tried on and we are so excited. Thank you so much!

    Warm Bridal Shopping Experience!

    I had the best experience at The Bridal Centre with my consultant. I felt so welcomed by all the staff there, and Diana was just a gem! She was so on the ball to what I wanted and found me THE DRESS. I mostly appreciated her kind words and how well she took care of myself as a bride. I would recommend the Bridal Center to anyone shopping! My experience with alterations closer to the wedding was fantastic as well. Great service all the way through!

    Dream Dress

    I can't say enough amazing things about The Bridal Centre! I found my dress within 30min of my appointment! The service and help were immaculate and just amazing! They understood every wedding drawback due to the pandemic and kept my dress for more than a year! The response was always so quick! The dress!!!!! Absolutely stunning! It was the exact replica of what I wanted and the alterations were 100% accurate. Thank you for giving me the dress of my dreams.

    Had a Difficult Time with the Tux Rentals

    Unfortunately we had a very difficult time with our tux rentals, and although they were priced well and had *some* polite female employees, the service was all around disappointing and the tuxes didn鈥檛 fit as we were told they would. The male employee kept trying to upsell us to a more expensive tux package, even though we had said no multiple times. We were also told that our tall groomsman would be fine to size, but he ended up having to bring his own shirt. He was told he would receive a discount for this, but he did not. My husband also mentioned that when they had showed up to pick up their tuxes, the male employee disappeared into the back room and left them alone for 20 minutes with no explanation. All in all, it was a very frustrating experience and we would not recommend renting tuxes from this location.

    She found me a black beauty

    I鈥檓 going to sing the praises of Cecilia the rest of my life. We gave me exactly what I was after and didn鈥檛 make me feel like a weirdo for wanting a black dress.

    I had such an amazing experience with her and the store I will recommend this store because they bring in some truly beautiful and unique pieces.

    Calm and accommodating!

    After feeling incredibly overwhelmed at other dress stores, The Bridal Centre helped me find the perfect dress. They offered a one on one appointment where they picked dresses for me rather than having me pick dresses in their inventory. The consultant was so calm and patient while I changed my mind a 100 times. After my dress had arrived they offered me an appointment to calm my worries after I had lost weight. I would not suggest any other bridal dress store!!

    The best wedding dress purchase experience

    I went to couple wedding dress stores before coming here and the difference in experience was like night and day. Diana took the time to make sure I was happy and could see myself getting married in the dress!
