Non Wedding dress dresses.

Hello!

I am not set on having an actual wedding dress as my wedding dress. I remember being a kid at my cousin's wedding watching her struggle to dance and really enjoy her day. From that day forward I decided I would not be having a super extravagant dress with tons of heavy layers.

Fast forward 10 years and here I am planning my own wedding. I am still looking for a white dress, just not strictly a wedding dress.

Did anyone else get a " non wedding" dress for their wedding? any recommendations on stores to look at? (Toronto, or Ottawa Ontario area) or even online sites?

    Check out Free People they have really nice stuff. Also H&M does wedding gowns I think, but they’re not like traditional ball gowns or anything

    So many amazing options these days.
    Look into bridesmaid dresses as many can be ordered in white or ivory.
    Le Chateau has some really nice dresses for good prices.
    Also any prom dresses out there can pass as wedding dresses!
    Not sure if there is a Ya Ya & co near you but they have a ton of beautiful dresses!

    There are very reasonably priced bridal salons. I got my dress second hand and even though it's very fancy I only paid 904 after tax for it. Something simple would cost a lot less.

    There are lots of wedding dresses that would be very realistic and comfortable. Here are a few I found. Don't know if this helps but hope it does. All of these were found just googling comfy wedding dress or lightweight wedding dress Smiley xd

    Hi Tinaka, congratulations on your engagement!

    One thing I've heard was to look at white/ivory bridesmaids dresses instead of wedding dresses. The salon where I got my wedding dress actually was the one that told me about this tip, more so for budget-friendly brides or those looking at a non-wedding dress.

    1861.ca (based out of Montreal) has a wedding section, with dresses that aren't your average dress - they look like what you might be looking for!

    I'd also check out places like H&M, they might have something you're looking for!

    Mine was still very much a wedding dress but it was tea length! So I had absolutely no issues with dancing and comfort!
