The biggest decision a bride has to pick is what she will be wearing as she walks down the aisle. After our Toronto banquet hall has been booked, the question we always get asked is where to look for wedding dresses? There are so many options in terms of choice for wedding dresses, but the main questions you must answer are what is your cost, style and location of the store.

Selecting your wedding dress is one of the most important decisions you will make in the planning of your wedding- you want to make sure you have done your research!
