After going to several Toronto bridal stores, I was disheartened and planning to fly to Florida to get my dress. I decided to give this last store (Mona Richie) a chance and THANK GOD I did. Their collection is truly impressive and one of the most varied ones I've seen; ranging from high end to affordable, foreign to local designers. As I walked in an attendant greeted me with ENTHUSIASM and asked me my wedding date, my style, any particular lines I liked, and my budget. She walked me around the various gown rooms, and kept me with her while pulling dresses. I really appreciated this, as most store attendants ask what you like and then leave you to go BY THEMSELVES to pull dresses. What I didn't like she wouldn’t pull, and what I did like she found more dresses along the same lines. She pulled dresses on my budget cut off, but also dresses way below budget. While trying on she was attentive and would wait outside as I put on the dress and then come in and clip to suit. I’m a person who hates to feel pressured, and I really appreciated the attendant's straightforward nature; a breath of fresh air after being CAJOLED by previous "trendy boutique" assistants buttering up every dress. When I tried on the second dress I knew I found THE ONE. The seamstress was accommodating with my time crunch, and we had a several fittings in short succession. My dress had A LOT of detailing, and she truly worked magic by altering the dress while keeping the delicate lace and patterns intact. The patience and meticulousness of the seamstress impressed me. In short, what I loved about Mona Richie is that it was a GENUINE experience, they listened and gave advice but never cajoled. They were super-efficient in meeting my demands in a short time space in every step of the process. They were attentive, informative, warm and their dress selection is extremely varied. I can't thank them enough for helping me when I was in such a panic. And they also saved me a plane ticket to Florida LOL!

I cannot say enough about the service and support provided by the incredible women at Mona Richie. Really, you can buy a beautiful dress anywhere but I highly recommend Mona Richie for their customer service. I purchased a bridal gown, mother-of-the-bride dress, and bridesmaids dresses. Every one of the dresses came in on time (I ordered dresses between April and May for a September wedding). Everyone was patient and attentive when it came to the fittings. I never felt rushed and was comfortable enough to say when I wanted or didn't want something added or removed. I was fitted with a corset that worked well and fit the dress perfectly. My mom has some health issues, but everyone was patient with her during her fittings. I mostly worked with Katherine, Marianne and Marianna but everyone was friendly and helpful. I would suggest going on a weekday if you're shopping for bridal gowns as it's less busy. I'm a fairly straight forward person who has low shopping-stress tolerance so I appreciated that most of my visits to the store where in-and-out while getting what I needed done.

I bought my bridal party gowns from this venue. I went to 7 different dress shops in the Vaughan/Woodbridge area and this location was the most flexible on price. I was purchasing the attire for my entire bridal party and they were willing to give me a 15% discount on each dress, without even paying cash. I did not purchase my bridal gown at this location.

I bought 3 Bill Levkoff dresses at this location for under $600 total (tax in). The dresses were cheapest at this location even before the discount. They were flexible and willing to work with me, they even, begrudgingly, let my mom take a piece of the dress colour sample from their book because we had to find matching pants for my Bridesman.

I wanted to stay away from Woodbridge because of the attitude problems of many of the staff. However I had too because this store was the only one that had the dress I was interested in trying on which I tried in another province. Since the beginning one of the store's consultants rudely asked me why I was there... When I told her she asked me why I would come there to try on a dress I had already tried on... And asked me to be "honest" with her... Insinuating that I was Gona waste her time. Throughout the appointment she continued to be rude to my family and lectured them on why they couldn't take pictures. I told her I tried on another gown in another store and when I told her the price they were offering she told me that it want true... Since it was more expensive there. Insinuating again that I was lying. I tried on the dress I loved and could have bought it there but didn't because she was way to rude and ddnt want to give her business. I went to 10 stores and this was the worst experience. We all felt very umcomforable and did NOT get a bridal experience at all. Plus the outside of the store was super super filty!

The owner is very rude and speaks to her employees like animals! The quality of the bridesmaid dresses were all cheap and they were costly. I've never been to a place where the owner would even disrespect her customers! They messed up on the sizes of the dresses and never apologized once! Not only that all the dresses were missing hooks at the top of the zipper. The day of the wedding all the dresses were torn and had holes all over. They were all tossed in the garbage the next day. What a waste of money!

Although I love my dress and couldn't be happier with it, the service from this place was just terrible. The only pleasant person who works there is Sonya. There are typically 3 wedding gown fittings, I had 5. Once I went back and nothing was done at all. The next time, it was so tight that the space between the two sides of the zipper was 2 inches wide. They said that it would be finished and ready to pick up at the next fitting and when I went back, they had cut the hem of my dress with scissors and left it raw and tattered. They forgot (although they assured me) to replace a considerable amount of the stones that had fallen off of my dress (as I purchased a discontinued dress that was on display) and to wash my dress (so the armpits were dark and disgusting and the dress had a prominent yellow tinge). In the end, the dress was clean and beautiful and fit perfectly, but along the way it was just awful working with the staff here (aside from Sonya). They were unpleasant, unkind and unhelpful. I would NOT recommend this vendor to anyone.

I got my wedding dress here and had an incredible experience! My consultant Nicolina was amazing!! She was patient, helped me pull lots of different styles so that I could find exactly what I wanted. She made the whole experience enjoyable and memorable. I would highly recommend Mona Richie Boutique as they had an endless variety of beautiful dresses and the service provided was top notch.

Looking at all these bad reviews I am very confused, there must be a lot of bridezilla's out there.
So many things went wrong throughout my wedding planning experience and my experience at Mona Richie was the best part of the whole process for me. I will admit I was slightly turned off at first. My sales woman was showing me items I had no interest in and insisting I try them. I ended up loving all her picks and hating my own. She was experienced and knowledgeable and had a strong sense of what would work on my body. I ended up buying the first dress she had had me try on. Maybe some might find this sales technique pushy but I chose to embrace her expertise and listen to her opinions and I love love LOVE my dress.

Alterations was the best part. Marianne is a busy woman but she is so talented. Trust her. She knows what she is doing. I had asked for buttons to be added to my back zipper (she did this for free) I was expecting plain satin Ivory buttons but instead she HAND BEADED over 40 buttons with pearls and sequins to be a PREFECT MATCH TO MY EARRINGS! This is next level service.

Thank you to Marianna and the entire team at Mona Richie for the great experience and truly treating me like a beautiful bride. Xoxo

Compared to other stores, Mona Richie made the wedding dress shopping experience feel special, store wise. It is bright, spacious and has many selections. I was looking for a specific style that I was looking at the year before and called everywhere and no one else could find it except for Mona Richie, who ordered it special for me. I was traveling from Mississauga, but the fittings were worth it; the dress fit perfectly and being short (5'1"), they altered it in a way that it did not compromise the style of the dress.

Mona was the nicest lady I have ever met. I had an issue with my dress when I thought it was a different colour and panicked. Mona did everything to put my mind at ease and accommodated me to compare my dress with the one I tried. Alteration team was amazing and definitely affordable compared to other vendors
