    So amazing!

    I visited The Gown twice, and both experiences were unforgettable. Katie and Alex made me feel so comfortable and welcome.
    I didn’t feel pressured or rushed to pick a dress, or that they were fighting for commission.
    I bought my dress today and I felt so confident in my choice thanks to the Gown Girls!

    The Gown's reply:

    Hi Laura, thank you so much for such a kind review! Alex and I are so happy to hear that you had such an amazing experience during both of your appointments! We can't wait to see all the pictures from your big day! xoxo, Katie

    Alex is the best!

    Alex was made for this job. I went in feeling very nervous as I am a very self concious person - Alex listened to everything I liked and disliked (including every dress I selected myself) and was able to pull a dress that I just loved! With Alicia's help, they were able to show me what it would look like how I chose to order it (lined, colour, etc.) and I left feeling so excited! Alex even had Taylor Swift playing as I said "Yes!" to the dress, as I told her my fiance played it when we got engaged and how much I love her. She really had some personal touches and the experience was truly stress free and fun. I would recommend The Gown to anyone looking for a dress! Both my sister and I had great experiences, years apart, which goes to show how much they love their jobs! THANK YOU ALEX for absolutely everything!

    The Gown's reply:

    Oh, Melanie! What a sweet and thoughtful review! It made me well up! Thank YOU so much for trusting me to help you find your gown, and for letting me be a part of such a special moment for you. It was my absolute pleasure to help make your appointment one that you will always remember with a smile! You and your family were so just the best! I can't wait to see you all again when your dress arrives! Until then, know how much this means to me, and happy planning!! Xoxo, Alex

    Incredible Experience

    I could not be happier that I chose The Gown for my wedding dress shopping experience! The boutique is elegant and inviting and the staff are all so welcoming. My consultant was Divine and she was fabulous to work with; she made the whole experience fun, exciting and comfortable. Divine had pulled the dress I had said I was interested in, along with other great picks based on the questions she asked. Ultimately the dress I had set out to try was the one! Once my dress arrived (in only 3 months time!) I was able to have a "reveal" appointment, which was just as great as the initial appointment. Overall it was such a special experience, I'm in love with my dress and I cannot wait to wear it on my wedding day!

    The Gown's reply:

    Thank you so much Jessica! We're so thrilled that your experience moved you to write such kind words! We will make sure Divine sees them too, she will be so touched! We are so happy that you love your dress as much now as you did when you said "yes!" and can't WAIT to see the gorgeous photos from your big day! You're a stunning bride and we wish you all the happiness in the world! Much love!
    xoxo,
    The Gown Girls

    Wonderful dress shopping

    Just purchased my dress from here yesterday! I was so impressed with how helpful Emily was and how patient. The store is a delight and they even had a zoom hook up which meant my maid of honour in Calgary was able to be "there". Amazing selection and I really appreciated the upfrontness about what a dress would cost. So happy I went there! Thank you.

    The Gown's reply:

    Thank you so much for your review, Maude! It means so much to me that you took the time to write about your experience. I had such a good time getting to know you during your appointment! I am so happy you found your gown. It is absolutely perfect on you! We can't wait to see photos of the big day in March!

    This is What Great Customer Service Looks Like

    I cannot praise the staff at The Gown highly enough for their creative COVID-19 service! I was dress shopping during the lockdown and was unable to shop in-store. While this wasn't ideal, The Gown did all they could to make sure that I could still find the perfect dress. I had my bridal consultation over Zoom, and I then brought home my favourite dresses to try on while meeting with a consultant virtually. It was almost as seamless as if I had shopped in-store. A fantastic experience.

    The Gown's reply:

    Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a beautiful and thoughtful review, Emily. It means so much to us! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your At Home Bridal Experience. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of the journey and being open to finding your gown in an unconventional way. It was a joy to work with you! Wishing you all the best! We can't wait to see the photos!

    xo,

    Exactly what I was looking for

    The ladies at the gown were wonderful and helped me find my dream dress. All of their dresses are reasonably priced and they always work within your budget! Since the pandemic hit the gown staff adapted and went virtual for their initial appointment. I loved seeing the potential dresses and videos online first and to know exactly what I would try on in store. After finding my dream dress it only took 3 months for my dress to arrive in store. All the staff made me feel important at all times. I would happily recommend this bridal boutique to anyone!

    The Gown's reply:

    Thank you so much, Emily! Your review means so much to us. It was such a joy to help you find your gown. We wish you and your husband all the best as you start your lives together!

    Amazing Experience!

    Could not say enough positive things about The Gown and my experience! The staff was amazing! I was worried with COVID to go through the experience but there is no need to worry at all. Their virtual meeting process helps pick out the dresses you like with further detail and meet the staff and the virtual with in-store experience allows friends and family to join you wherever they are! I am beyond happy with my experience and found my perfect dress! I recommend every bride go and see these amazing ladies at The Gown!!

    Plus Size Bride - Dream Experience!!

    Brides.... I cannot say enough amazing things about the store itself and the ladies at The Gown! As a plus sized bride, I was worried what experience I would be having at the stores. They turned out to have a wonderful selection for all sizes which made for an unforgettable experience that was stress free and wonderful!!!

    As soon as you walk in the door, you feel the warm and inviting atmosphere instantly! The store is cozy and pure bridal. They have individual and private suites for your appointments and were able to zoom call in my mom who is stuck in the states right now! It was so special to be able to have her there for my appointment and watch me say yes to the dress! She said she felt like she was in the room, it was such a special moment that I am forever grateful we were able to share together.

    All of the details starting from the sign in the room with my name on it, to the genuine excitement that the employees have for you, was so different than the two other stores I visited. There was never any pressure and they offered their genuine opinion which was so appreciated.

    I cannot recommend this store enough! If you want to feel like a beautiful, special bride, you have to visit The Gown! You will not be disappointed!

    Thank you for making my wedding dress shopping everything I ever imagined!!!! 💜💜💜
