    I got mine at Windsor Bridal on Orfus road. It was a bridesmaid dress, total with taxes = $150 !! All the traditional dresses just weren't working for me a) because it's a beach wedding and B) this was my second wedding and I didn't want anything too poufy!

    You have to keep an open mind when you are looking at bridesmaid dresses though, because they just don't make them in white for the showroom, so you have to be able to picture what it will look like in white.

    My dress is in my siggy pic from my TTD. It was awesome and perfect for me!

      I got mine at Best for Bride in Etobicoke. It's smallish, but they have a fairly good selection of DW dresses or bridesmaids dresses that as Debs mentioned, you could order in white...
      My BM's are just each buying a regular dress within the 'colour scheme' I figured that way, I know they're going to like them and wear them again!

        I got my dress at the Bridal and Beyond at Laird and Eglinton (TO). I told them by budget ($1000 & under) and they were great about it! They also have tons of sales happening all the time, as they're a new location. I ended up getting a Maggie Sottero dress with $300 off and coming under budget!
        As for my BM's I took them to the mall, and tols them to get whatever they culd decide they all liked...worked out perfect!

          I wanted a simple dress and I found this company in China
          (Light in the box) who copy designer dresses. They can make one similer to a photo-but they have an extensive collection of wedding and BM dresses online and I found one they had on their site that was perfect.

          If you are OVERLY concerned about your dress then prob don't take this route!...But since I wanted something simple.... I was willing to take the chance of ordering it over the internet and they custom made it to fit my measurements and it turned out beautiful.

          Here is my dress but I ordered it in Ivory

          2009 Style A-line V-neck Knee-length Taffeta Bridesmaid Dress (HSX120) - US$ 69.99

          They do wedding dresses too and extravagant ones--you can't beat the price! I got mine in about 3 weeks!

          Hope this helps some brides on a budget!

            I heard there is a great store in Port Perry. My girlfriend bought her dress there. Ended up being a BM dress, but was gorgeous! I'll try and get the info from her. I'm almost positive it's called Forever Friends, or something like that.

              Best for Bride - online!
              I tried on the dress here in person though, loved it, but not the price. Found it for MUCH less there, and they threw in Shipping for free!

                I got mine at the dressroom on the Danforth, they had a much larger selection of destination gowns, versus their sister store Beckers.....

                      Val's Bridal in Courtice has a pretty good selection of DW gowns as well as tons of samples of non DW gowns. The service was wonderful. Of course, I am biased, seeing as though that's where I ended up purchasing my gown and bridesmaid dresses. :)

                      I have also heard that The Dressroom on the Danforth has a GREAT selection of DW type gowns as well. You certainly wouldn't go wrong there!
