The best way, in my opinion to spend such a large amount of $$$ - especially since the cause is so great!

You must have patience and don't just go once - make a few trips and start early.

Also use the seamstress that they recommend.

My sister got her dress at the brides project 4 years ago. She got hers after the first visit. So I was nervous when it was my turn. I wanted something that was "different", beach and bride like all in one dress. I found it!!! I loved that I could try on any dress and take photos. Pom the recommend seamstress is a fabulous extension of what the brides project has accomplished. Doing something amazing for charity and helping brides make a big decision is such a great concept. Love the old house on broadview, loved the selection and the staff! My dress was perfect!

The Brides' Project in Toronto is an amazing place to get your wedding dress and for a reasonable price with the money going to charity. I went in there expecting to find a dress that would work for our wedding and I ended up coming out with "the dress". As soon as I put it on, I knew and my mom knew that it was the one for me and I never thought I would find that in a dress. I was lucky and didn't have any alterations done to the dress, only had it dry cleaned before. Everyone loved the dress at wedding and no one could believe that it was a second-hand dress.

The staff there are also awesome and it was such a great experience! I would highly recommend going to Brides' Project and if I had to do it over again, I would not change where I picked my dress from.

I found my dream dress here, at exactly the price point I wanted, AND it ended up needing no alterations. Dream come true!!!

For those that have not heard of this fantastic place, they take donations of dresses from brides and donate profits to charity. The girls here are so genuinely caring and knowledgeable. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone.

What an amazing experience!
I hated the idea of wedding dress shopping, thought it was too expensive and blown out of proportion!
The Bride's project was the perfect solution! I really had no problem spending that much money on something to wear once when the $'s go to charity, and the shopping experience was perfect!
They left you alone with your team to shop and explore the rooms and dresses they had! We didn't have someone recommending dresses and putting them on me, we pulled them, played with them, judged them and had our laughs and a GREAT time doing it!
I got an amazing dress! It was so much more in style and so much more traditional than I thought, but it was still unique, classy and exquisite!

A perfect place to start. These are second hand dresses that you would never know were second hand. If you are looking for your dream dress and are set on one style - this may not be for you but if you have an open mind and a kind heart, this is where you should start your search. My dress was very reasonably priced and fit me like a glove - the best part, all of the proceeds from the sale of the dress go to cancer research - worth every penny!

Pet them, talk to them in a soft voice, and understand that our staff and friends here wanna enjoy your visit too! Together, we make it a great experience!
The Brides’ Project donates ALL PROFITS to The Canadian Cancer Society (Relay for Life), The Breast Cancer Foundation , Camp Quality and several other related organizations that help fight cancer and/or support those afflicted.

Oh my gosh! Helen and Vanessa had me in tears more than once! They were incredible!!! Not only did I find the dress of my dreams, but they helped me envision how to transform it, set me up with a cleaner, and made me and my ladies feel like stars when we came to try things on. I have never had such a more wonderful experience. Truly one of the highlights of my entire wedding planning. I can't wait to take my beautiful dress back for someone else to love, donating even more to a brilliant cause, and attaching a photo and a story to the dress like it's previous owner did for me! THANK YOU everyone at the Brides' Project!!!!!

I loved my experience at the Brides' Project and would fully recommend it to anyone in the Ontario region. The Brides' Project receives donated or used dresses to sell and proceeds go to support children with cancer. After I got engaged I decided to make an appointment to check out the Brides' Project after work one day for fun - I hadn't look at any other dresses yet. When I got there, the staff figured out my "wedding" size - about 2 sizes more than normal, and sent me into my own room filled with dresses in that size. I loved the freedom of being allowed to look through and try on numerous dresses without an annoying salesperson around. I ended up choosing the second dress I tried on and spent months altering it to make it my own (I removed the train and added extra beadwork). All of their dresses are very reasonably priced so it was a great deal. The staff were extremely friendly and gave me lots of wedding advice. Highly recommended!

The Brides' Project allows you to book an appointment online, and they respond to you very quickly! They also allow you to take pictures. You can find both secondhand dresses donated by brides and new dresses from bridal shops. The most expensive dresses are $1200; the others range from $300-800. There's a ton of selection, and the dresses are organized in different rooms based on the size. I brought two friends and tried on at least 25 dresses, and I took home a gorgeous Sophia Tolli "Anne" dress for less than half price... plus the money goes to cancer research, so I don't feel quite as bad dropping hundreds of dollars on a single piece of clothing that I'll only wear once.

Helen was polite and helpful, and overall I had a great time.

This was such a great experience! I went with my parents to pick out a dress here and I wasn't expecting much because I never thought I'd be okay with a worn wedding dress but I found "the one" here! The little house is PACKED with dresses and the ladies there were so helpful! I liked that we could pick whatever dresses we wanted and try it on ourselves in the room. There's no pressure at all to buy here so I was quite surprised when I left with dress in tow! After going with the cleaner they suggested my dress looked brand new! I've been telling everyone about this company since I bought my dress and would consider donating my dress back now that I'm done with it but, I love my dress so much I'm not sure I can part with it just yet! They also have shoes and one of the ladies there makes viels!

I didn't hear the end of it from my mom that she was disappointed that I got a second-hand wedding dress. But I didn't care. I loved the dress and wouldn't have had it any other way. To be true, there are a few things that need to go right for this option to work, but is it really any different from shopping at those warehouse-type places? Yes!

- First of all, the girls that volunteer there are super nice, extremely helpful and because they aren't getting commission, are very honest. They won't let you leave unless you look fantastic.

- The price can't be beat. I spent $678 total on my dress. Didn't have to get it clean. Didn't have to get it altered.

- What a great cause! It's a great story to tell to your guests.

- The dresses are by no means the rejects. They're dresses that looked stunning on past brides and will likely look stunning on you too!

- I don't have room in my apartment for storing a wedding dress and how terrible would it be to have to throw it away. Thanks to the bride's project, I don't have to go down that road. I'm getting it cleaned and donating it back for the next bride. I wonder if the donation is tax deductible?

- Whatever you decide to wear, you will undeniably look beautiful. This option just also gives you that warm fuzzy feeling that you did something good for others.
