The Brides' Project is a volunteer-run organization that collects new and used weddings dresses and donates all profits to cancer charities. We provide a uniquely fun and friendly environment, and make sure that the wedding dress shopping experience is enjoyable for all!
Most importantly, we offer a socially conscious option for brides so that they can give back through their weddings to support their community. While a wedding may be just one day... the impact lasts a lifetime for those helped through The Brides' Project. Whether donating or buying a dress... every bride can make a difference. Read less

I went to The Bride's Project twice and had a great experience each time. There is a good selection of dresses and accessories, but you'd also need a bit of luck and possibly a few trips as new dresses arrive all the time. The first visit I did not end up finding my dress but my friend did! She found a beautiful lace dress for $600, and it was exactly what she was looking for. Inspired by my friend's find, I decided to go by myself the second time. I found my dress! A beautiful Mori Lee dress for $650 ($734 with tax) (I looked online afterwards and the original cost was $1551). The staff and volunteers were so nice and attentive, they were always available to help bring dresses and to take pictures for me, they went above and beyond. The prices can't be beat, and it is for a great cause so it's a win-win. Something to keep in mind is that most dresses will require dry cleaning and some alterations as the dresses are off the rack, so that will be an addition of $150-200+ for dry cleaning, and more for alterations. The Bride Project referred me to someone for the dry cleaning and alterations, and she's a great lady too!

I was so happy with my experience at Brides Project. It was recommended by a friend who also got her dress there.
During the appointment I felt so comfortable - it was low pressure, which is a huge deal for me.
I tried on a ton of dresses and found one that was awesome. The bonus, the price was right and I got to feel good about where the money from the dress went.

The volunteers at the Bride's Project definitely made my shopping excursion a stress free and easy process. They were knowledgeable about their stock, about what alterations could be done to different dresses to make them more in line with my vision for my dress, and at the end of my hour appointment were as happy as my mother and I were to have found my dress. This self-serve, non-commission, warm and welcoming environment was exactly what I hoped it would be and I'm so happy that the money I spent on my dress will go to help people struggling to survive their fight with cancer. I will be telling everyone about this great shop and my wonderful experience there.

I went to about 5 bridal salons while I was dress shopping ranging from low to high end and The Bride's Project was by far my favourite shop that I visited. The ladies at the shop were amazingly helpful and I never once felt pressured like I did at some of the other salons that I visited in the Toronto area. The volunteers are always available to help you zip up, bring you an accessory or give you an opinion on potential alterations. I ended up finding the most beautiful, affordable and completely 'me', dress here and I can't wait for my fiancée to see me in it in a few short weeks! My experience at the Brides' Project was so memorable and my mom and I had so much fun, I can't recommend making an appointment at this shop enough! As a bride who is actually pretty uncomfortable with the whole mega-commercialization of weddings, this shop was a breath of fresh air. I loved that the dresses were pre-owned or donated from salons and affordable and that many of them come from happy brides who have worn the dress once before and have attached a beautiful note to the new owner. The whole experience was such a delight and I can't wait to share pictures from my wedding with them!

Finding The Bride's Project was a dream! Not only did I feel warmly welcomed and comfortable as soon as I walked in for my appointment, I also really appreciated the work that The Bride's Project and their volunteers do to help women get outfitted for one of the happiest days of her life!

I didn't feel any pressure to make a decision and felt free to be as adventurous or conservative as I wanted in my dress choices. I ended up finding the dress at my first appointment and was thrilled with my choice. I even met the lovely Pom Penner who altered my dress and made it fit perfectly!

Both my bride and I purchased our dresses here and found dresses that we loved! Alterations were minimal and the atmosphere of the place was friendly. The self-serve approach was refreshing. We love the idea of helping such a good cause with our purchases and will be donating both of our dresses back for some future brides! They also recommended a delightful seamstress, Pom Penner, whom we both used. Her work was excellent and very reasonably priced. She handled everything including the dry-cleaning.

I was discouraged when I went dress hunting. I could not find anything I liked, and they were all very expensive. A friend suggested I look at The Bride's Project. They have a wonderful selection of dresses for all sizes and all types of dresses. Most dresses were under $500. All proceeds goes to cancer research. I got a beautiful dress (exactly what I was looking for), at a wonderful price (no one can beat the price of the dress I found), and I supported cancer research all at the same time. This place is run by volunteers, and they were all very nice and very helpful. They also had a good eye for helping you find the perfect dress. Don't be discouraged if you don't find anything the first time. Make another appointment with them after a few months. They are always getting new dresses in. I found the perfect dress in my second appointment. If you live near a Bride's Project, I highly recommend you check them out. You won't regret it.

The wonderful volunteers at Brides Project were so friendly and helpful! It was my first bridal appointment ever- I came by myself and they took the time to help me get zipped/buttoned into the various gowns and went out of their way to find me some styles based on my taste. I had an entire change room to myself and loved the low key, no-pressure atmosphere. They also had a terrific selection of dresses to choose from! Sadly, I did not find my dream dress there, but I will definitely be going back to check out their shoes and accessories to go with the dress I eventually bought. Also, I would love to donate my dress to them after the wedding- what a great group of people and a terrific cause!

I visited the Bride's Project twice - once to look for a dress (which I did not find here) and once to look for a veil (which I did purchase here). The volunteers were all super friendly and I appreciated being able to search through the dresses at my leisure. Although they didn't have my dress, I was impressed enough that I came back when it came time to look for a veil. The veil I purchased was a lovely single-tier elbow length with satin edging for $60. Dresses were all reasonably priced as well - plus all the proceeds support cancer research! Definitely worth checking out.

Found my dress at the brides' project. There were a lot more options than I expected, more my style than those found in bridal salons. Make sure you read the rules before you go they are pretty strict.
