I live in the UK, and my mom lives in Toronto.
I visited recently and we went to Yorkdale Mall to try and find a dress for her to wear for my wedding but unfortunatley couldnt find anything, there actually wasnt much around!
I was hoping to find a few suggestions as to where she might go to find a dress, what stores etc?
We dont want anything really formal or fancy, and not a typical ‘Mother of the Bride’ dress that you get in bridal stores, but something more like what you’s wear to a fancy christmas party at work, or a fancy evening do, something a little more fashionable.
In a perfect world, id also like to be able to surf the shops website to pre-select a few!

I think it’ll come down to your mom’s style but Melanie Lynn & Laura have more traditional dresses. if you’d like something trendier i would suggest The Dress Room at the Bay and Holt Renfrew. A great online place to look for ideas of the look your mom is going for would be Nordstroms, and they happen to ship to Canada now.

There are a few nice shops around the Yorkdale area on Orfus Road. My mom got hers at Edith’s Fashions which is about 5 minutes north of Yorkdale. Edith’s is a bit pricey, but they have some really gorgeous stuff.

I am not from Toronto but I love Ricki’s stuff for myself and they have some great dresses right now. Also Sears has some holiday dresses out.
Both have their dresses online. Good Luck!

Not sure if i’m too late or not, but i’d suggest Laura (in most malls), or Ritche (on Avenue Rd/Lawrence)

I guess it depends on what style you are looking for.
My mom got hers at RW&co and bought a nice shrug. My wedding was pretty low key though, only semi-formal so that was fine. Obviouslt there are bridal stores etc as well. My mother in law got hers made.
