There is nothing bad I could possibly say about this place. I got a whole room to myself, full of dresses in my size. The cause is fantastic. I actually drove from Saskatoon, SK just to buy my dress there. I also didn't know this at the time but sometimes you get letters from previous brides who have worn your dress. I highly recommend this place to everyone.

I found the dress of my dreams at an amazing price. My seamstress fit it perfectly to me after I purchased it.

The Brides Project is an amazing initiative, and it also happens to be a really savvy place to shop for a wedding dress. I had been to unique boutiques and chain bridal stores looking for a unique, non-white, full lace, sheath dress. Even if these other stores had something similar to what I wanted, the price tag was through the roof. I was frustrated by the lack of selection at generic bridal stores, and the sneaky way they try to get you to spend thousands of dollars over your budget. At the end of a frustrating dress shopping day in Toronto, I stopped in at the Brides Project. It is a very different atmosphere in that there are no "sales people" there to pull gowns for you and give you their opinions. You wander through the many rooms packed full of used dresses pulling whatever stands out for you - just like shopping in your every day clothing store. So much less stressful!
I ended up finding my dress in the destination dress section. It was gold and creamy coloured, head to toe lace, designer and one of a kind (so the internet told me after my purchase), and was $450!!! It also fit like a glove. The only problem was a small tear in the hem from the previous owner's high heel. I didn't notice this, but the cashier made sure I was aware before she took my money.
Because my partner's mother died of cancer two years earlier, being able to purchase my wedding dress at the Brides Project was even more meaningful. I not only recommend this place to my friends, I IMPLORE them to try it out. Hundreds of dresses to fit every style, constantly rotating collection, dirt cheap prices for designer gowns, and proceeds go to fighting cancer. Can't be beat.

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!

If you think that you need to spend a fortune on a dress that you will only wear for one single day of your life, think again -- and think used! The Brides Project, located in a big, old house in Toronto, has an abundance of dresses (some used, some in "last year's" styles, and all donated). The organization's philosophy is wonderful, and proceeds go to a camp for childhood cancer patients. It was a unique experience, being left alone to try on as many dresses as I liked in the "Sweet" room (that's the room for non-Twiggy-like brides-to-be). It was July, the house isn't air-conditioned, and the dresses were heavier than I had anticipated, but once I put on the dress that was "me" I couldn't have been happier. http://www.thebridesproject.com/

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.

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!
