What do you do if you’re a bride-to-be, and you must have the wedding dress of your dreams, but your budget only has room for a veil at best? Well, if you live in Toronto, you check out Windfall Brides, a boutique that offers brand new, high-end wedding dresses at wholesale prices. All of the gowns Windfall Brides sells are donated by local bridal salons that have inventory surpluses. Funds raised by this social enterprise support anti-poverty initiatives run by Windfall, and the boutique also serves to provide job training opportunities to people in need.
Not looking for a bridal gown? Windfall Brides also carries bridesmaid, mother-of-the-bride, and maid of honour dresses. By shopping at Windfall Brides, the soon-to-be Mrs. and her bridal party can find the dresses they want at the prices they need while also contributing to an extremely worthy cause. What’s not to love about that?!
