Now that summer is here, it means wedding season is in full swing and that means your calendar is most likely already jam-packed with upcoming nuptials. As exciting as weddings are, it can be stressful trying to decide what to wear, especially when you’re a guest at multiple weddings in one season. Not only do you have to find something that adheres to the dress code, but you also don’t want to break the bank by shelling out hundreds of dollars on a dress you won’t be able to (or want to) wear again. Luckily there are a few stores in Toronto that always come through when it comes to both chic styles and more formal options, so whether you’re going black tie or for more of a bohemian vibe, you’ll be able to find exactly what you need right here in the city.
Below are the 5 best shops and boutiques for wedding guest dresses you’ll actually wear again (and again!)
The Store on Queen
Known for its bold and sexy styles, The Store on Queen is the perfect place to go if you’re a gal who isn’t afraid to make a statement. Here you’ll find everything from more formal black tie-style dresses to flirty printed numbers, and literally, every other style in between. A major plus of this Queen Street gem is the knowledgable and friendly staff who are always eager to help you find exactly what you’re looking for.
While this Ossington gem has a strong focus on bride and bridesmaid dresses, the shop still carries an impressive selection of dresses for wedding guests to choose from that range from floral bohemian-style dresses, to sleek and formal ‘fishtail gowns’. You can also grab the perfect pair of heels, jewellery, and accessories at Loversland to complete your look.
Narwhal is one of those boutiques that always ‘wows’ us with their feminine yet slightly edgy pieces, and its dresses are no exception. Here you’ll find plenty of wrap-dresses and floral numbers that are the perfect option for an outdoor, summer wedding. Plus, the versatile, flirty silhouettes can also work for future dinner dates.
Poor Little Rich Girl
After a visit to the uptown boutique, you’ll quickly realize why women come back here for its wedding guest dresses time and time again. Not only are the staff incredibly helpful, but the dress selection is impressive, ranging from plunging necklines, cut-outs, feminine floral prints, and mesh details. And while most dresses are fashion-forward, this boutique’s options are still classic enough to be re-worn on several occasions.
Nothing screams summer wedding more than dreamy floral prints, and Anthropologie just so happens to be a safe haven for those looking for more bohemian, floral numbers. Here you’ll find dresses ranging from mini and maxi cuts, to wrap and off-the-shoulder styles that are perfect for summer, yet can also be brought back the following spring as a day number with a leather jacket and sneakers.
