The White Dress Boutique Showcases At The Ottawa Bridal Show

If you ever wonder what to wear on a first date then this is your answer. And if you ever decide to do it, make sure to capture every precious moment on camera of the dude’s expression when you open up the door with “oh, hello, I was just doing the dishes” and release it on YouTube ASAP. Instead of going for coffee or dinner, offer to shop for a veil. Instead of telling him that you had a good time, tell him that you are 100% fertile. And I can go on and on…

On Saturday at the Ottawa Bridal Show, thanks to Justyna from Chichichic, Jasmine from The White Dress Bridal Store poped my wedding dress cherry by having me model a Vera Wang wedding dress. Vera Wang! I’m not a wedding fanatic and always joke that I’m going to get eloped in Vegas by an Elvis priest. But as soon as I saw myself with the dress I teared a little- Just a tiny little! Jasmine definitely has a great eye for wedding dresses. I didn’t want to take it off at the end of the day.



The White Dress is located on 191 Preston Street in Ottawa. It is new and the only store in Ottawa that specialize in carrying North American Bridal Couture brands such as Vera Wang, Badgley Mischka, Monique Lhuillier, and Romona Kevesa.

The price range for the dresses are around $2500 - $5000 with most dresses around $4000. The Vera Wang dress I had on is $5000- It is not a bad deal for a couture wedding dress (well, I always thought Vera would cost at least $15,000).

For those that recently got engaged, compliments of The White Dress, Photolux Studio is having an open house where you can enjoy some music, cocktails, Hors d’oeuvres and mingle with the team.

When: Saturday, January 22nd, 6pm-10pm
Where: 197 Preston Street

  8. Omg, you make me laugh out loud. To wear a wedding dress on the first date and tell him you have to be in church and that you two should hurry up. I think he will run and knock grandmas on the ground in his run.
    You look very pretty in a wedding dress.
    P.S. Why are there so many people scared of the dark? We are grown ups :)) I know I am scared because of my older brother who used to make me watch horror movies when I was a kid and then he would scare me at night. I had to sleep with the light on to see if he's hiding somewhere to scare me.

  17. You can also go to bed with a thermometer in your mouth and excitedly tell him "hun! I'm ovulating! let's have sex!" nothing turns a guy on more.
    xD gorgeous dress! I'm also surprised that a Vera *only* cost $5000. Did it make your ovaries tingle just a little?

  20. Haha - I'm not huge into weddings (oh it's spelt headache in reality) and the whole process of shopping for a dress and the bridesmaids dresses and all that is very lengthy. Plus, I don't fancy like 90% of the wedding dresses I see....but I must say, the one you have one is absolutely stunning. If I ever get married and have a stroll down the aisle, I want a tube dress just like that which fans out at the end ;) Soooo pretty!

  21. Wowza you look stunning! I love how the dress fits you like a glove with a theatrical skirt- now you just need the ring on your finger! Yes I was at the Ef launch party- I didn't see you however I was a little tipsy also (a couple glasses of wine and I'm toast!)xo
