at Bride to Be Boutique, owners Katie and Tina want their brides to have the shopping experience that they have always dreamed of…

our story

We invite our brides to try on all of the dresses that they love during their 2-hour appointment. 

Finding your dream wedding gown is one of the most sentimental and emotional purchases a bride will make. We want that special moment to be an everlasting memory our brides can look back fondly on and cherish for the rest of their lives.

A few times a year we escape to Bridal Fashion week where we fall in love with styles that we know our brides in Windsor will absolutely adore, only bringing home with us the best pieces from each collection - gowns that don’t shy away from making a statement.

We provide our brides and their guests with a luxury experience that includes private dressing rooms and a personal bridal stylist for a relaxed and personalized appointment. Our dressing rooms are intimate and elegant, drawing attention to the bride, with no distractions, no peeping eyes and most importantly your guests’ undivided attention.

I’ve been in the Bridal Industry one way or another since I was 14 years old. I knew right away that this world was for me! I love the ‘ever changing trends’ and fast pace of Bridal. I love how we, as a society, have grown and continue to grow and how we accept that LOVE IS LOVE for EVERYBODY and EVERYONE! I love meeting my Bride and my Bride’s family and friends. Strangers when we meet, we often become life long friends by the end of our time together! How great is that? How lucky am I? I get to share an experience with my Brides and their loved ones that they’ll remember for the rest of their lives. Every one of my Brides have made an impact on my life in one way or another and for that I am beyond grateful. The Bridal World is truly my passion and when I say I eat, breath and sleep ‘bridal’, I really DO ! I can’t wait for you to come and experience the truly unique, fun, accepting and loving experience that awaits you at Bride To Be Boutique! 


Twenty years ago I stumbled into a career in bridal and I never left. Today, I have proudly had the honour of helping hundreds of brides in the Windsor-Essex area find their dream gowns.

Every day I get to live out my dream of helping brides feel stunning on their wedding day. I love meeting their families and cultivating relationships that extend beyond their wedding gown journey. I really love what I do and can't wait to share the joy that it brings me with all of you... our Brides to Be!
