We all know how important it is to get words of wisdom and referrals from our trusted friends. Here are some testimonials from our very happy brides!

Just wanted to send a quick thank you to you guys at LA Collection. I absolutely loved my dress! You guys had such a good selection of wedding dresses and I’m so glad I found this one. You guys have great customer service and I felt welcomed the second we walked in the door. Tanys was very good to work with and I loved her honesty when I would try a dress on! When the dress came in it fit me like a glove. Thanks again!!- Jasmine Hoff, 2016

I had tried a couple other gown stores and the service was awful I was ignored and when I tried on dresses they wouldn’t tie the dress up they would just squeeze it together with there hands which made the dresses look awful I was feeling very discouraged until I went to La collection, the service was fantastic the lady was so helpful and made the entire experience fun she even started pulling dresses for me to try on and took her time with tying up every dress, she made me feel beautiful and me being a bigger girl that was very...

I walked into the store without an appointment and was greeted warmly and friendly anyway. Teagan was awesome! Super helpful and friendly! She spent a lot of time with me, lacing up every dress beautifully! I never felt rushed or pressured, and I felt like she was on my side. I found a gown I LOVE, and she encouraged me to spend as much time in it as I wanted. She was attentive and supportive and a lot of fun to work with! I haven’t had any experience with ordering or alterations yet, but the experience trying on dresses was great.

I loved the atmosphere at LA, it is clean and bright and open, and all the displays are eye catching! The moment I walked in I was greeted with a smile, and directed to the front desk to be paired with a sales associate. My associate was attentive but not over bearing and I liked the individual attention I received from her. Being a fuller figured person I did not expect to have such a big selection of dresses to try on! My sales associate was politely honest and helpful in selecting the dresses and I left with a great dress and feeling...

I was very impressed by the professional services in L.A. Collection. I went there to look for a wedding gown for my wedding ceremony in June 2013. When I just came to the store, the salesperson asked what size, styles and color I were looking for. She helped me to pick some fabulous dresses and to try them on. The salesperson in L.A. Collection was very knowledgeable and professional. She measured to find a perfect fit or to make a necessary alterations. She also gave comments on how each dress looked on me. I was so happy to find a stunning...

LA Collection was such a great experience for me! I had tried David’s Bridal but the dresses looked and felt cheap. They didn’t have anything. When I went to LA, I was so impressed with their plus sized selection! They had so much stock on the floor that I found my dress after only trying on a couple. Jennifer was amazing (my consultant). I even bought my bridesmaid dresses here and my veil! I’m very happy with everything! -January 2014

I couldn’t be happier with L.A. Collection. I purchased my wedding dress from them in January for my wedding on September 7th, 2013. Kayla was my consultant, and she was absolutely wonderful. She helped me find exactly what I was looking for. They even did my alterations in the shop and they came out perfect! They have a large selection of dresses to choose from, so if you are starting what seems like the endless search for your dress. Start here and ask for Kayla! They also have a large selection of grad, bridesmaid, and evening...

When a woman in on a mission to get her dream wedding gown, she wants quality, affordability and extraordinary service. The moment I stepped into L A Collections, I quickly found all three. The store itself is HUGE, as were their selection of wedding dresses. It was a little intimidating with so many options, but the atmosphere is very warm and welcoming. My consultant, Tiffany, did a fantastic job of listening to my preferences and procuring dresses that matched. I didn’t feel rushed and was well looked after by her; she was very...

I had a wonderful experience today at L.A. Collection. My Consultant, Danielle, had a few dresses pulled for me before my appointment time and they were right on the mark in terms of price and look! She was patient, offered suggestions and made me feel like I was the only customer in the store. I purchased my gown and left so happy and relieved to have found one that fits my vision and budget! Thank you Danielle and L.A. Collections! I cannot wait for the gown to come in! -September 2014

I had been to a few different bridal salons and tried on many different wedding gowns before I went to LA Collection, which was referred to me by my sister-in-law.  She told me that I had to go check it out because they had such a huge selection of bridal gowns, as well as bridesmaid dresses.  I was so impressed when I first walked in to LA Collection.  First of all, I was so happy when I tried on my first dress because the dressing rooms are huge!  If you’ve ever been to one of those salons that cram you into your fitting room...

Our wedding planning ended at your location in finding the perfect dresses for my wedding, which happened on October 5, respectively 6, 2012, in my home country in Switzerland. I found a beautiful lace gown for our civil ceremony, which is mandatory in Switzerland and a beautiful gorgeous gown for the big day. My main of honor found also two dresses at your store and my mom even bought 3, because she couldn’t make up her mind.  The wedding was a fairy tale, a dream come true and it couldn’t have been better. Everything went well, and we...

My wedding isn’t until next summer but thought to take a quick peek one lunch hour.  I picked out a couple that I kind of liked.  I didn’t have time to try them on yet. My girlfriends and I went on a Saturday afternoon, just to see what’s available.  We all spread out and picked out a few for me to try on.  I went in not really knowing what I was looking for.  But as I was trying some gowns on; I liked some parts of this dress and other parts of that dress…not really finding THE one gown that I truly loved. Brenda...

Shelley at LA Collection was amazing!  She made me feel really comfortable trying on a bunch of different dresses, and she was very patient and friendly.  She made the experience really a fun time!  I went to a couple other bridal salons and they were no where near as good.  They seemed to be too busy to take the time to show you everything, but at LA Collection they were great.  I highly recommend them!

Shelly at L.A. Collection has been super fun to work with so far. If any of you ladies out there are looking for a sales woman who’s attentive, patient & funny & not pushy…… then see Shelly at L.A Collection. My bridal experience so far had been great! I recommend that all brides go to LA Collection!!! November 5th 2009

Shelly is easily the best bridal consultant I have ever dealt with. Not only did I purchase a bridesmaid dress from her last year, but this year when it was my turn to look for a dress she was the first person I went to see. Her ability to know what you want and what will look good on you are unmatched by any person I have ever dealt with before. You always have her full attention and makes you feel like you are dealing with someone you can trust! Thanks for making my dress shopping so much fun!! November 26th 2009

Just wanted to let everyone know that I went shopping at L.A. Collection and had the most amazing service. This experience was everything I thought it would be! Shelly made my dress shopping stress free and just fun! LA Collection had the best choices of dresses, the best prices and best service. I would recommend this bridal salon over any other in the city, and I did go to 3 other places, nothing compared. It was also nice that they have an elevator so my Grandma could come! Thanks Shelly and LA Collection November 26th 2009

I had shopped around for dress shoes for our wedding social. I thought this would be a perfect time to see which Bridal store I’d like to go to buy my wedding dress.  I had already been to 5 bridal stores. It was a Saturday, and none of the other shops would give me the time of day (I know it was just shoes, but it would still be a sale, not to mention they all knew I hadn’t gone wedding dress shopping yet!)  The service at LA Collection was so great; I decided to go back there for my wedding dress shopping. They even take...

I was so fortunate to have Kelly as my consultant when purchasing all the dresses for my wedding. She was so enthusiastic, professional and patient! LA Collection is a fantastic salon, but I truly believe its people like Kelly that really make the experience special and memorable!! June 27th 2012

I had the pleasure of having Kelly help me find my dress. She nailed it within the first 5! She is excellent with what she does and she will go out of her way to make sure that you leave with exactly what you wanted. Tons of selection here. Great staff throughout 🙂 November 7th 2011

My husband and I were married in June 2010, and after visiting many bridal shops in Winnipeg, I bought my dress from Shelley at LA Collection. Shelley is fabulous at what she does. Finding the right dress was unfortunately stressful for me… until I met her. She listened to what I wanted, but also gave me honest advice. I ended up buying the first dress that she pulled for me. I’m sure the other consultants are equally fabulous, but if you ask for her, you can’t be disappointed. I would definitely recommend LA Collection to...

Just wanted to thank everyone at LA Collection for helping me find my dress first of all (after I spent about 3 hours and tried on what felt like 50 dresses) I came back and you had my dream simple dress! Secondly, the alterations team got it to fit me so perfectly. The alterations were quick and it fit me like a glove and looked exactly how I had imagined it on my wedding day two weeks ago!Third the customer service was spectacular…for the five times I was in there over the course of the last 7 months or so you always greeted me by...

We had an AMAZING experience @ L.A collection with Brenda. you girls were so nice, and helpful, and you had the best, and biggest selection of dresses in winnipeg. i would recommend ANY bride in Winnipeg to go to LA on portage, for a stress free, fun dress shopping experience. my bridesmaids and i had a blast trying on dresses, and Brenda actually found me my dream dress. There prices and quality of dresses and amazing atmosphere can’t be beat 🙂 Thanks for everything, i am beyond excited for our big day!! November 26th...

My daughter Kaleena’s wedding was planned the wedding in five weeks because of her serious health condition. Shelly was amazing in finding the perfect dress for her. She also found myself the blue dress and another one for the groom’s mother. We went in to your store with other dresses in mind but Shelly knew exactly what we needed to look fantastic for my daughter’s perfect fairy tale wedding. Alterations were done in record time and the veil and tiara finished off the look. My stepdaughter is getting married in June and...

Brenda is amazing and so is Nicole. Their service is stellar and so easy to get a long with not just these ladies, but the rest of their staff. Definitely recommend going to L.A. Collections for not only the biggest selection in gowns, but for an over all amazing experience. Oh ya, did I mention that you’re ALLOWED to take photos? There are a few salons that won’t allow it… September 21st...

Dear Yen, I just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful service I received when I was shopping for my wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses at LA Collection. I was thrilled that we were able to find my wedding dress. the bridesmaid dresses and we even found a dress for the mother of the bride too. All of this in one day too! We had received awesome service for my sisters wedding in August of 2006 so we knew we had to go back again for my wedding! Our wedding was on Saturday, May 16th, 2009. I know it’s risky doing outdoor pictures...

I purchased my wedding dress from LA collection and Shelley helped me!  She provided great, friendly service and was very patient and willing to help!  My bridesmaids will also be purchasing their dresses from LA Collection and I would strongly recommend anyone that I know to go there.  They have a huge selection of dresses and there is lots of room to try dresses on without feeling restricted.  I am very happy with LA Collection and I am looking forward to looking stunning on my wedding day thanks to their wonderful help!  THANK...

LA Collection is awesome. I had already decided on a dress at another shop, but I wasn’t really feeling it. It just didn’t really wow me, it was ok, but I knew it wasn’t the one. So a few days later I ventured into LA alone and ended up dealing with Brenda and she was awesome! She gave me 3 dresses and the 2nd one I tried on was the one, I loved it. I went back with my Mom later that night and bought it. Brenda and all the staff there have been awesome, we have been back so many times and they are awesome every single...

I just want to say that I had a great experience at LA Collection and would recommend it to any bride. They were very helpful and their gowns are less expensive than other salons that I’ve visited even for the exact same wedding gown! The staff is very friendly and not pushy at all. They are very attentive and know what they are talking about. Lots of selection, I kick myself for not visiting this store first! A+++ Dianne December 15th...

I was at LA Collection on Nov 2 and had nothing but the full attention of Shelley while choosing and trying on wedding gowns. On entering LA Collection I was impressed as it was the most modern, bright, and clean bridal store I’d been in. Absolutely huge selection of dresses and bridesmaid dresses, as well as accessories! My experience here was outstanding. I found my dream dress no problem and the prices couldn’t be beat by other stores! Can’t wait to go back for bridesmaid dress shopping! Thanks Shelley! See you...

After having a great experience purchasing my Graduation dress several years ago at LA Collection, they were the first place I went for my wedding dress this year. Although they did not have any of the dresses I brought in (pictures from american magazines. i did not expect them to have identical dresses), they were able to pick out the perfect dresses in a similar style! In fact, I had the HARDEST time deciding from the first 2 I tried on.  Also, although my dress budget was quite a bit higher, both dresses came in at only $700! I could...

I too went to L.A. Collection and had Brenda helping me out.  She was really great and very friendly!  She’s not pushy and really knows her stuff.  At the end of all my trying on dresses I could not decide between two so I asked her to write the style number down and the designer just so I could think about which one I like more.  She suggested when thinking about which dress to pick-think about how I want to look on my wedding day and which dress represents me the best and how I want to feel in it.  The only problem is I...

Shelly at LA Collection was amazing.  I wanted a very simple wedding dress and was becoming discouraged because I wasn’t finding anything I liked.  Shelly gave me her full attention and pulled many dresses I liked, including my wedding dress!  LA Collection is definitely a bridal salon to stop in at.

I purchased a gorgeous princess like wedding dress from LA Collection during the beginning of my wedding planning. My girlfriends and I had a blast trying on dresses at the store. The gals were friendly, very helpful and knowledgeable about their merchandise. A few months later, our wedding plans completely changed and we decided to have a destination wedding in Vegas. I told them about our situation and although I loved the dress I already bought, it just wouldn’t fit with the humid weather we knew to expect down south. I wanted...

Walking into LA Collection was a relief, when we walked in the store and didnt get “attacked”. I just want to take the time to Thank Brenda for all the help she offered and the opinions she gave.  I really enjoyed the experience with LA Collections and Brenda was a big part of that experience.  Jana September 17th...

I’m not big on trying dresses on and got very nervous when it came time to go shopping. My first stop was LA Collection. Brenda gave me a hand and made me feel so calm. She actually pulled out the dress that I later bought. I mean WOW I found the dress was calm and even had some fun. All and all I only tried on 3 dresses and had planned to spend most of the day walking around finding a dress I like. The price was unbelievable too! Now well over a few months later I went back to look at hair pieces like clips and tiaras, Brenda...

Hi everyone! Just wanted to share my experience with LA Collection. When we got to LAC, Brenda greeted me and was a joy to work with! Brenda was the only person all day that did not give me a veil “just for fun”, when I made it clear I did not want one. And the only one who didn’t try and make me teeter on heels when I’m getting married on a Jamaican beach! She was the only person to even offer me a flower-hairpiece, which I fell in love with. I wasn’t planning to buy my dress that first day looking, but Brenda...
