Meet Our Favorite Wedding Dress Designers
We’re passionate about wedding gowns, which means we’re passionate about the designers who make them. Meet our favorites.
One of the most exciting things about working in bridal is the opportunity to build connections with designers from across the country—and around the world. Every designer we work with is someone we’ve selected based on the quality of their designs and the uniqueness of their style. Through establishing relationships with a select group of bridal labels, we can bring our brides a selection of gowns to meet any style, silhouette, or price point.
Finding the perfect dress is an emotional decision. Brides are searching for a dress that doesn’t just look good, but that speaks to their personal style, or expresses something about their values and interests. Taking some time before your first bridal appointment to learn about a designer and see their latest collection can help you find a gown you connect with on that deeper level.
We’re proud of the range of designers we carry at our boutique. More designers means we have more options to offer brides who are still trying to find their vision. And for brides who are already in love with a designer, we can match them with their dream dress. Ready to learn more about the designers we carry? Here (in no particular order) are our favorites.
If you’ve ever wanted to feel like your biggest romantic fantasies had been pulled from your head and turned into a wedding gown, Lillian West is the designer for you. Breezy, lacy, soft, and stylish, these dresses check all the boxes.
Many, but not all, of these gowns fall into the boho trend, so if you want to try something of that nature without going all the way, this is a great designer to check out.
Essense of Australia
The word Essense of Australia likes to use to describe themselves is “epic,” and we certainly see that in their designs. These gowns are truly sensational, showcasing modern takes on timeless dresses.
Whether you are yearning for sparkle, desperate for lace, or have your heart set on a striking minimalist design, there’s a dress here for everyone.
For brides who aspire to be trend setters, Stella York is the designer to watch. These gowns typically reflect up-to-the-minute design trends, from glamorous fashion statements to lacy boho gowns.
We often host trunk shows with Stella York, so if you’re eager to get your hands on a one-of-a-kind dress, keep an eye on out for our next announcement.
All Who Wander
While other labels flirt with boho, All Who Wander goes all in. Get ready for detachable sleeves, tassels, and oversized lace—all on dresses breezy enough to take a hike in. These gowns are for adventurous spirits, fierce women who aren’t afraid to make a statement.
You won’t be short of variety, either. While these dresses all fit the boho theme, you won’t be at a loss for details to obsess over, whether it’s the low back, the cutaway side panels, or the removable cape.
Adore by Justin Alexander
Sometimes a designer comes out with a collection that is so prescient, you wonder if they can see the future. That’s what it felt like when Justin Alexander released their new Adore collection. What could be more perfect than a line of simple wedding dresses at affordable price points with fast turn-around times at a time when many brides were re-arranging their weddings and planning elopements.
The best part? Like their name implies, these dresses are adorable. This is truly a case of a designer responding to what the market needed without compromising quality or style.
Based in Calgary, Lis Simon is a husband and wife duo who started out of their apartment and grew into an international bridal label. They’re the perfect choice for brides who want stylish gowns that blend the modern and traditional.
We’ve been ultra fans of Lis Simon for years due to their unique take on bridal fashion. Along with their regular line of dresses, they also offer separates that can be sewn together for a mix-and-match gown that is all your own.
Allure Bridals has been among of our most requested designers for years. Their gowns are a breathtaking combination of decadence and romance, with luxurious fabrics, intricate beading, and delicate lace.
Above all, Allure has embraced variety in their collections, with a style and silhouette to suite every bride. Their creativity frequently comes through on their special collections, which often feature unique fabrics or designs that take their inspiration from a special source.
Our designers often come out with new lines meant to deliver a specific look or appeal to a certain kind of bride. Their new line, Abella, has truly blown us away. Their designs bring together traditional silhouettes, exquisite construction details, and modern fabrics to create ethereal gowns that are absolutely unforgettable.
We’re proud to be one of the select boutiques carrying this line of dresses, so if you want to try them on, we can make your dreams come true!
A boutique with a variety of designers can help you find your dream gown.
If you aren’t sure what kind of dress you’re looking for, knowing your designer can help you shop within an esthetic even if you haven’t picked a silhouette. On the other hand, if you don’t know what you want at all, the more designers a boutique carries, the more options you’ll have.
Shopping for a dress is one of the most emotionally involved decisions a bride makes before her wedding. We want to be sure you can have the best experience possible. If there are any dresses from our designers which you would like to try on, we can order them in for you through our loaner program, even if they aren’t ones we usually carry in our boutique.
And while you’re at it, keep an eye out for trunk shows! We sometimes have the opportunity to showcase a specific designer while they’re still fine-tuning their newest collection. It’s a chance to buy a dress that is truly one of a kind.
