I haven’t been, but th daughter of an associate went and had a fantastic time. She said there were so many dresses to choose from and sh did buy her dress there. They have a website but you can’t view Amy dresses that they have. (can’t remember the website name)

I went there a few months ago. The staff was very nice! However I found selection of dresses to be limited and the prices higher than I expected. The most discounted dresses were mostly either out of style or damaged, however there were a few beautiful dressed in the discounted section too. I was looking for a specific shape and fabric and I am quite tall, so there were only 2 dresses that I could try on. Unfortunately they did not work for me.

I suggest to go in with a positive attitude but low expectations. This way you won’t be disappointed if it doesn’t work out.

I’m also interested to find out how your experience is when you go there as I live in Toronto and have heard about this store ๐Ÿ™‚

So its worth the trip? I was thinking of getting my dress from there, but was worried about the selection.

I really wanted to go but they only allowed you to take 2 friends with you.  We were making it a weekend dress trip from out of town and had 8 total so I said I’d go back later. In the end I found a dress I loved before I got there.  I’ve heard from many others though that it’s worth the trip for sure!

@yellowpeony:  I felt the same way as you. I’m plus sized and there was one room for ALL plus sizes. Not much selection in my actual size, and what there was to choose from was mostly REALLY outdated. We had a nice time, but we were in and out in like 20 mins.

I was there last week. The upstairs has three bedrooms full of dresses, basically grouped into small/medium/large rooms.   There is also a room of veils and petticoats.  On the ground floor there are two rooms of dresses that are either new arrivals, destination/beach dresses and a rack of higher end stuff (the really fancy dresses).  The staff are all volunteers, so they are friendly, but not retail consultants.  You go through the racks yourself and pick what you want.  The prices are half of ticket price (so almost all of of them were still above my $300 budget!).   Some of the dresses were in immaculate condition, others had literally been dragged through the mud.    I think that the really really good stuff goes fast and you have to be lucky to find your dress in your size at the time that you are there.   I did find a tea length dress there that was really cute, but it was far too large for me and I wasn’t wiling to spend what it would take to alter it down.   It is worth a look if you have the time and are open minded to taking a chance on finding something.

I went there to start my search, and fell in love with a dress that was not able to be altered to fit me, so be prepared for that. It was a great place to start. I had my mom, my Future Mother-In-Law, and my Maid/Matron of Honor with me, and they had a blast picking dresses that they thought would look good on me, and it helped me to narrow down the type of material and cut that I wanted. They certainly have a lot of dresses to sort through, and most come with a little story of the bride that wore the dress before.  I didn’t end up buying a dress there, but I always recommend it to others. Good Luck!
