New Arrivals!

So we've had a very busy couple of weeks here at the store!  We love bridal season!  But unfortunately we've fallen behind in our blogging.  So I wanted to take a few minutes to show you some of our newest beauties that we've got in the store!  Cuz who doesn't love new wedding gowns?!

So if you've been following us or have been to our store before you know we carry the unique.  The gowns that aren't in every bridal magazine and that every other store doesn't carry.  In fact many of our wedding gowns are sold exclusively at Once Upon A Time Weddings.  Two of the wedding gowns I'm about to post are such gowns, gowns that are only available at Once Upon A Time Weddings.

So are you ready to see them or what??  First up..
Why hello there beautiful! This stunning gown features a slight sweetheart neckline with soft layers.  It's made from organza material which gives it a romantic feel.  It has a ribbon and bow at the empire waist which is accented with a small swarovski crystal pin.  

I think this dress would be adorable with a colored belt.  I've thrown on a red one just for fun.  But you could do it in any color.  What a fun way to match your girls or wedding party.

okay, now for dress number two..

This mermaid lace is absolutely stunning.  It's form fitting silhoutte will flatter many body types.  It has a beautiful sweetheart neckline with a beaded bust.  The beautiful belt at the empire waist line is blush colored like the satin under the lace.  It can also be ordered solid ivory. 

This dress is all about the details.. the beautiful hand sewn beads, the delicate ruffles of the flower on the belt, and the beautiful lace edging on the train all combine to make this a showstopper!

And last, not but not least.. another ruffled gown with beautiful beadwork throughout the gown. 
 I love how the beadwork is continued into the back of the gown.  The detailing is immaculate, with the zipper and the little buttons down the back.
 The way this gown pulls gives you a beautiful hourglass waistline.  Talk about spectacular.
So if you're still in search of THE DRESS you need to get your little toosh down to Once Upon A Time Weddings to try some of our gorgeous gowns on.  You won't be disappointed!  Be sure to check us out online at

Here's what one of our recent brides said about her experience.  "Thank you so much Erin for all help today.  For the first time since I got engaged I am truly excited for my wedding!"

Be beautiful!

Prom Gowns.

So, if you've been following our facebook fan page, you know that some of our prom gowns have arrived this week.  This has caused the owner, Erin Bouchard to have a bit of prom envy, so I decided to take a minute to share my pick of the new gowns.  This is my absolute favourite gown and if I had somewhere to wear this to, it would be mine :)  It's such a stunning gown.

Wouldn't you be so elegant showing up to your prom in this little stunner.  Here's a close up of the intricate beadwork at the waist.  Those beauties are all hand sewn on.

Okay, the very best part of this gown is.... drum roll please... it has this wicked adorable print on the inside of the gown.  Classy and elegant, but also fun and playful!

And of course, this beauty and so many more will be included in our PROM PHENOMENON event in 8 days.  Gah.. 8 more sleeps until all these these gorgeous gowns make their way down the runway.

Choosing Bridesmaids Gowns...

Hey guys, this is Erin.  I wanted to take a few minutes to discuss choosing your bridesmaids gowns.  You want your maids to compliment the style of your gown and their bodies!  It can be a difficult choice.  When choosing your gowns think about the following things:
- the time of year
- your venue
- how many girls
- the formality of your wedding gown
- what you'd like the groomsmen to wear

For instance if you've chosen an A-Line gown with lots of beadwork, probably pairing it with a princess bridesmaids gown with tons of pickups will look a little odd.

I thought I would show you some of our new wedding gowns matched up with some of our super cute, adorable bridesmaid gowns.

I just love the way these two gowns look together. They have very similar bodices and ruching. I love that the bridesmaid gown has just a little bit of sparkle to it. Both of these gowns are very figure flattering as they both give you a nice defined hour glass shape.

The wedding gown is one of our exclusive lines at Once Upon A Time Weddings.  This classic, princess gown has beautiful beadwork and ruching.  It's such a timeless, elegant gown, that it deserves to be paired with a timeless, elegant bridesmaids gown.  This gown has a very flattering pull that will look great on all your girls.  It also has a small amount of beadwork to match the beads on the wedding gown.

These gowns scream princess!  I love the way the bodices match.  The colored sash at the waist of the wedding gown compliments the two tone bridesmaids gown.  What's not to love about these flirty, fun styles?

To check out our great selection of bridesmaids gowns call 519.245.7997 today to book your specialized appointment.   Or book your appointment on our website at

Hope you've enjoyed this little post about choosing complimenting bridesmaids gowns.
