The Bride.Canada Dress Review Contest

How does it Work?

Share your reviews of the wedding dresses that you try-on in stores

to help other brides with their dress shopping
and for a chance to win your wedding jewellery or even your wedding dress!

  1. Look for your perfect wedding dress
    • You can search thousands of wedding dresses in the Gown Gallery
      and also look-up the bridal shops that carry each of them...
      ... or you can use any other, more "traditional" methods :)
  2. Go to the boutique and try it on!
  3. Share your impressions on
    Look-up the dress in the gown gallery and post your review in the Facebook comment box below it.
    • You must be have a Facebook account.
    • Each review is a contest entry so review as many dresses as you like!
    • You do not need to purchase a gown to write a review it.
      (but if you're purchasing a Maggie Sottero gown, definitely review it! - see below)
    • Reviews will be moderated before posting. See "how to write a helpful review" below.
  4. That's it!
    The most helpful reviews will win - as described below

How to Write a Helpful Review

  1. Describe your wedding style,
    ex: an intimate wedding for 50 guests
  2. Share what you are looking for in a dress,
    ex: a dress to highlight my curves
  3. Discuss these topics:
    • overall impression
    • your body type and the fit of the gown for that type
    • favourite dress detail(s) and why
    • why it did or didn't work for you
  4. Reviews do not need to be glowing, but we do ask that you be mindful of the fact that even though a dress isn't right for you, it might be the perfect one for someone else! With this in mind, we cannot approve overly negative reviews that would upset a bride that has chosen to wear it.
