If you’re looking for a high-end designer gown, then White boutique in Yorkville is your place to shop. For a flowing beach dress, take a look at Sarah Seven’s collection of vintage, feminine and romantic bridal wear. Another suggestion is YolanCris’ boho folk line that’s full of lace and sheer styles inspired by 70s fashion. This boutique also carries gowns by Oscar de la Renta, who personally designed his last wedding dress for Amal Clooney. For something simple yet elegantly sexy, go for Nicole Miller’s collection.

Vogue Sposa Bridal Boutique

304 Danforth Ave, Toronto, ON M4K 1N6

This East York boutique is known for their custom designs. If you have a vision for how you want your dress to look, have the designers at Vogue Sposa make it for you from scratch (Tip: Call at least six months in advance). The cost of custom designs starts from $4,000. I’d also suggest checking out Anaïs Anette’s collection – designed in Toronto, this local brand has beautiful gowns perfect for a beach wedding. I particularly love the lace-up back detailing of the Savannah gown. Handcrafted and heirloom jewellery by Karolina Keeler is also available to complete your look.
