    Fantastic Experience!!

    I can not say enough about my experience with The Modern Bride. When I had my appointment, I had previously tried on dresses somewhere else. At the previous place, I was limited to only 5 dresses as a street size 12. My experience was so much different at TMB. I had a plethora of choices, almost every dress I pulled off the rack I was able to try on and get a good picture of what my true size would look like. Laila was all I could ask for. She really listened to my wishes, put dresses back I wasn't interested in and was my own personal hype girl in the change room. She also made suggestions about different dresses that weren't originally on my radar. The dress I ended up purchasing was one she brought in for me to try on! I am grateful for my experience with TMB. It was such a refreshing moment to not be worrying about my size. Thank you Laila for making my day just that much more special!!

    100% Recommended!

    My experience at The Modern Bride was everything I dreamt of. The dresses are obviously gorgeous but the experience while you’re there is what I was wanting. So personal and beautiful. And they really know exactly what to show you when you explain what you’re looking for. I dealt mainly with Alicia and she was absolutely great!

    Beautiful studio with amazing service

    From the minute I walked in it was such a great experience! Donna met with me and we talked through what I was looking for before going up to their beautiful loft to look at dress options. There are so many beautiful dresses and I loved that they had Canadian designers! I was so happy to choose my dress at this salon and was thrilled to see that they plant a tree with every dress purchased! They really understand the needs of modern brides! Totally worth a trip there if you’re looking for the perfect dress and experience!

    The most beautiful selection of gowns!

    I had the best experience picking out my dream dress at The Modern Bride! My consultant was amazing and the selection they have is truly gorgeous. After finding my dream Pronovias dress, I realized it had a matching cape veil. They were able to order it for me and it became my favourite part of my gown! Thank you TMB for helping me feel absolutely beautiful on my wedding day!

    The Best Bridal Service in Ontario!

    After trying on numerous dresses from numerous different stores, I found my dress at the Modern Bride. From the moment that I stepped into their shop, I was in love. They are professional, friendly, and extremely stylish. After purchasing my dress, they stayed in constant feedback with me regarding the delivery date. They also re-steamed my dress a couple days before my wedding to ensure that it was perfect the day of. I would highly recommend supporting this female owned and operated bridal store!

    Simply the best

    I’ve tried on Many, MANY dresses at top notch bridal stores but this was bar none the best experience I’ve ever had. From start to finish I felt important, comfortable, supported and at no time did I feel as though I was being ‘Sold’. Really flawless in every way!! I highly recommend Modern Bride but be ready to buy because you are sure to find a dress you will love!

    The best bridal boutique in the GTA!

    After visiting a few boutiques in the gta and being disappointed with the experience I tried Modern in Guelph. LEt me jsut say there is not enough words to express how wonderful my experience was! The boutique itself is STUNNING! Pictures do not do it justice! Historic building with natural light over looking a gorgeous church with huge windows. It felt magical. Their dresses are GORGEOUS, ( they carry the blush by Hayley Paige line!) and they have a large selection of dresses! The service is impeccable, The girls are so kind and attentive, you never feel rushed, they aren't trying to push a sale on you and in general you just feel so special! They are also super honest, the pricing is AMAZING! After purchasing my dress the contacted me immediately to let me know when my dress will arrive which was only 14 weeks from my purchase date! Lastly, for every gown purchased Modern bride plants a tree in the community! Highly recommend modern bride!

    The Modern Bride's reply:

    Hi Victoria! Thank you so much for your response! We are so happy that you found your gown at The Modern Bride! We can't wait to see photos from your big day!

    Absolutely Amazing!

    As soon as I walked into TMB I knew it would be where I would find my dress. My consultant was so welcoming and took the time to listen to what I was looking for. The dress loft is BEAUTIFUL with such a variety of styles. I originally thought my dress was going to be A-line, but my consultant asked me to try on a different figure and I am so thankful she did. THANK YOU TMB for such an incredible experience.
