Bridesmaids

August Real Bride | Ryan and Alexa's Wedding

Alexa was such a wonderful bride to work with and we are so grateful she chose us at Once Upon A Time Weddings to fall in love with her lace ball gown. Alexa, you looked absolutely stunning! We are so excited to show you all their beautiful wedding day, their bridesmaids dresses, and the love these two share, enjoy!

What's your favourite memory from your wedding day?

"Our whole day was honestly the best, our ceremony had personal touches with Ryan's sister and father doing readings. We absolutely loved our cocktail hour though, we didn't have a receiving line or the big entrance at the reception, so when we finished photos, we showed up at the start of cocktail hour and mingled and had drinks with our guests; it was so relaxed and such a great way to see everyone and start off the night!"
It was so fun having Alexa and her girls back in the store to purchase their maids dresses!

Who were your favourite vendors from your wedding day?

"Our coordinator Alysha at Revival House (and their whole amazing staff!) honestly became friends towards the end of the whole planning process, they made everything so easy and were such a joy to work with. Designs by Cate did our amazing floral and she exceeded our expectations, I honestly met with her once to discuss ideas and just trusted in her to do her thing and it was amazing! Our lovely Pastor did such a great job personalizing our ceremony and with our marriage prep in the months before the wedding, after serving at Ryan's family's church for 13 years he is enjoying retirement currently! And lastly our photographer Mariangelica, she's just a rock star and we feel so fortunate to have worked with her and got to know her well over the last couple years."

What did your (now) husband think of your dress?

"He liked it and thought I looked pretty. He doesn't know one dress style or shape from another, so he just knew I'd look nice!"

We love our brides! If you got married in a Once Upon A Time Weddings dress, please contact us about being featured on the blog!

If you're newly engaged and haven't found your dream dress, don't hesitate to book your appointment with us, we can't wait to give you the experience of a life time!

From the actual crawl to Sydenham Ridge to the Fashion Show, we can't wait to see all of your beautiful faces on the 28th! We wanted to give another quick run-down of how the day would look, followed by a list of all the vendors!

At 1pm, you can begin to pick up your 'passport' at 20 Caradoc St North, Once Upon A Time Weddings store front, this will have a list of all the vendors and their downtown store locations. From 1pm-3pm you will walk/drive around town to visit the vendor’s stores to meet them, ask questions and receive a signature on your 'passport.' These vendor signatures will secure your entry into the raffle drawings later that night at Sydenham Ridge Estates. Once you have finished your checklist we will all meet (brides and vendors) at Sydenham Ridge from pm for a fashion show, munchies, cocktails, music, and door prizes. We cannot wait to see you there!

Here is the list of all the vendors you will get to meet the day of the crawl, so if you're just curious or if you want to do some research ahead of time, see what you still need for your wedding or map out your walking route the day of the crawl, here they are!
