The Four Cuts of Wedding Gowns..

Every wedding gown can be basically characterized one of four ways – princess, A-Line, fit and flare or empire.

Princess – A princess gown or ball gown as they are sometimes called, is a wedding gown will a full, big skirt.  This is your classic Cinderella gown.  This style suits a lot of different body types and is a fun, romantic style.  Avoid this style if you do not like your hips, as it will make your hips look bigger.

Empire – This style of wedding gown usually has beading or a band right underneath the bust area and then flows down from there.  This gown makes you look taller as it elongates your body.  This style is great for small busted women, as it will add volume to your bust.

A- Line – This style of gown usually has vertical seams that flow down to a A-shaped flared skirt.  This style is flattering on many different body types.  This style does create a slimmer waistline and flatters the bust.  This style does also flatter big hips.

Fit and Flare – This style of gown is covers mermaid and dropped waist gown.  (This can also be called sheath).  This style is tight fitting over your hip and closely follows the line of the body.  Mermaid style is tight to your knees and dropped waist is tight over your hips.  This dress does make your legs shorter.

At Once Upon A Time Weddings, we carry all four styles of wedding gowns and our racks are sorted by style for convenience.  Call 519 245 7997 today to book your personal appointment to start trying the four styles on.  Or book an appointment at our website at  If you missed our new summer hours blog post click here.  Stay tuned for blogs coming this week all about new promotions going on in the store!

Sneak Peek at New Gowns...

So this past week, I had the opportunity to travel to Salt Lake City, Utah to preview a new line of gowns that will be sold exclusively at Once Upon A Time Weddings.  This line combines modern twists with romantic traditions!  While there we got to meet the designer of these gorgeous gowns and watch two exciting fashion shows!  There are so many exciting things going on at Once Upon A Time Weddings.  Stay tuned to this blog to see pictures of new gowns and learn all about special promotions!  Because of the exclusiveness of these gowns they are not posted on websites!  So I will post just a couple of gowns to give you an idea of these beautiful gowns!

This is an example of the new wedding gowns that will soon be arriving to our store:

And this is an example of a prom gown.  We know it's important for you girls to make sure you have a gown that no one else is wearing.  So we're bringing in a line that is not sold anywhere else in Ontario.  When you purchase one of these gowns from Once Upon A Time Weddings you'll be sure that no one will steal your identity! Be sure to check back here often as we give sneak peaks of these gorgeous gowns and eagerly await their arrival in late December!  We'll also be sharing about some pretty cool promotions and contests for Prom over the next few weeks!

New Wedding Gowns...

I wanted to show you two new gowns to arrive to the store.. I'm so excited to see the Fall 2011 slowly start to trickle into the store!  The first gown that arrived was this adorable cocktail length wedding gown.  This gown is ivory with a blush colored sash.  It can also be ordered in solid ivory or solid white.  I think it would be perfect for an outdoor wedding or a backyard barbecque!

The second gown that arrived to the store is from a new line that we have just started to carry called Callista Bride.  We were noticing a lot of frustrated brides who didn't fit into size 8-12 gowns and our selection of gowns in the plus sizes was lacking, so we found Callista Bride, we were so thrilled!!  Not only does the entire line cater to brides size 16-30, they are gorgeous gowns that are truly meant to flatter curvier brides without looking like your typical plus size gown!
I especially love the back - the laceup and beautiful long train!  This gown is ivory, but is available in both white and ivory!

If you're looking for that perfect wedding gown that will make you feel confident and beautiful, call Once Upon A Time Weddings at 519-245-7997 or visit our website at  Stay tuned this week for a big sale announcement next week!
