Buying a wedding dress is more than a shopping experience, it’s an occasion. There’s an abundance of bridal wear boutiques in the Greater Toronto Area, and it can be intimidating to know which to choose. As one of Toronto’s most well-known wedding gown dry cleaners and aftercare providers, our team at Gibson’s has put together a list of our favourite bridalwear boutiques in the city.
Founded in 2007, Jealous Bridesmaids is a go-to destination for west-end brides in search of finding the perfect dress. Located in the heart of Toronto’s Junction, boutique owner Charmaine Mendyk opened her store with the vision to offer a seamless bridal wear shopping experience from beginning to end. With designers like Stella York and Kenneth Winston, the Jealous Bridesmaids bridal consultants offer a wealth of knowledge about different fabrics, styles, and dress silhouettes.
