Second Story Wedding Shop (316 Charlotte Street)
Head to Charlotte Street and you’ll find Second Story Wedding Shop, which carries both new and pre-loved wedding dresses in Peterborough. Naturally, its stock is ever-changing, but you can expect to find looks by designers like Alfred Sung, Lazaro, Maggie Sottero, Paloma Blanca, Pronovias and Essense of Australia. If you don’t want your frock gathering dust in your attic after your big day, you can even bring your gently used number to the store and consign it. Keep in mind that for a dress to be accepted it has to be clean, have no visible damage and be in fashion.
