A practical guide to planning your wedding in Barrie

Congratulations on your engagement! Barrie is the perfect location for your dream wedding, and we have all the information you need to plan your wedding here. Whether you want to be married in summer, spring or winter, here are some essential details to consider.

Barrie City

The best time to be married in Barrie

You can choose to be married at any time of the year, but the right time would depend on whether you prefer an indoor or outdoor wedding. An indoor wedding is possible all-year round, as the weather outside shouldn't affect your wedding plans. However, if you have your heart set on an outdoor wedding, it is best to get married in early spring. Heavy thunderstorms in late spring and summer or snowfall in winter can throw your plans off track.

Type of wedding and venue

Elegant formal weddings and relaxed modern ones are both practical in Barrie. There are plenty of venue options, and your choice should be based on the size of your wedding party, budget and type of wedding you desire. For a historic venue that can accommodate 200 or more guests, the Holiday Inn Barrie Hotel & Conference Centre offers all-inclusive packages for a formal wedding, while the Waterstone Estate and Farm has a rustic banquet hall with a capacity of 150. If you want a more relaxed ambiance, Cambium Farms is a wedding barn venue that will work well.

Waterstone Estate and Farm

Wedding vendors

While some wedding venues offer all-inclusive packages, you may have to arrange your own decorations and caterers at others. Although the package deal is more convenient, the second option allows you to personalize your wedding to suit your taste. Customize your decorations to match the wedding theme by working with a professional who can handle the job. Make sure you attend a tasting session before you finalize your wedding caterer and baker. Take a look at the pictures and details on vendor websites to find out all about them. At Best for Bride, you can find a range of services including wedding cakes, decorations and florist services, and come one step closer to having everything you need for a perfect wedding.

Wedding dress shopping

Barrie Wedding Dress Shopping

Choose your wedding dress based on three main factors: your body shape, taste in fabric and design and the weather at the time of your wedding. Wedding dress shopping takes a while, so we recommend that you start early and do your research well before you begin. It is easier to choose a wedding dress when you know your preferences, as it can otherwise become overwhelming. Don't forget to account for alteration charges and accessories, when planning your wedding dress budget. Book your appointment in our Barrie Store at least six to nine months before the wedding, so you receive your dress on time.

Visit us at Best for Bride to choose from our extensive collection of wedding dresses. You can also find dresses for the rest of your bridal party and your wedding accessories at our boutique in Barrie. You can also consider our wedding dress rental service, if you have a limited budget. For all your wedding needs, book your appointment with Best for Bride today.

Frequently Asked Questions - Barrie Bridal Gowns and Bridesmaid Dresses Shopping

1. How do I pick the right bridal shop in Barrie for wedding shopping?
To enjoy a productive and memorable bridal shopping experience, you should go to the right bridal store. However, before that, you should finalize your wedding dress budget. Then create a list of stores that carry gowns in this price range. Ask friends and family for recommendations. Also, check online reviews to find out which of these stores are highly recommended. Then book your shopping appointment at the shortlisted stores and proceed with your search for the perfect Barrie wedding dress.
2. What additional costs will I incur apart from the bridal gown cost to complete my bridal look in Barrie?
The wedding dress cost is usually the biggest expense related to your bridal look. However, you will have to budget for wedding dress alterations and accessories as well. Alteration costs will depend on the extent of work that is needed to get your dress to fit. Accessories include bridal jewelry, veils, tiaras, crinoline and anything else that is necessary to complete your look.
3. How many dress fittings are usually necessary?
Almost every bride needs alterations after the wedding dress arrives to make it fit perfectly. The exact number of sessions needed will depend on the extent of work and how long it takes to complete. Typically, two or three sessions are enough to get a gown altered. However, if you wish to make drastic changes to the original design (like change the neckline, add sleeves or move the hemline) you will require more sessions with your seamstress.
4. When will my wedding dress arrive?
Wedding dresses are made to order. When you visit a bridal store in Barrie, you will try on available samples from different collections. Once you like a dress, you can place your order with the store and put down a deposit. The store will then contact the manufacturer with your order details. The manufacturer will start making your dress only after the order is placed and the entire process can take months. Most dress manufacturers need anywhere between three to six months to make a dress. Therefore, you can expect your dress to arrive after three months of placing your order. For rush orders, you will be charged extra.
5. Can I take my bridesmaids shopping with me in Barrie?
Most Barrie bridal shops do not restrict the number of people in your entourage. You can choose anyone to accompany you when you go shopping. Nonetheless, it is not wise to go shopping with a large group. This will only make the entire process confusing and exhausting. Preferably, plan your shopping with just one or two people who can contribute to your shopping experience.
6. Should I buy my bridal accessories with my wedding dress?
You can buy your bridal accessories with your wedding dress at Best for Bride. When you choose your wedding dress in Barriefrom our collection, we offer you the chance to explore our bridal accessories collection and find the perfect accessories to compliment your choice. You can also find amazing deals when you buy both your dress and accessories from our store, in one go. However, if you are unsure of what to wear with your dress, you can take your time to think and come back later.
7. What should I do before I go shopping for my wedding dress in Barrie?
You can enjoy a better shopping experience if you do some research in advance and prepare well for wedding dress shopping. We suggest that you browse through bridal magazines and dress collections online to identify your preferences. Then prepare a list of features that you would like to have in your wedding dress. Next, fix your dress budget and select a suitable place to shop at. Decide who should go shopping with you. Finally, book your appointment at the chosen store and visit it.
8. What if I gain or lose weight after I order my wedding dress in my current size?
You should always order your wedding gown in your current size. It does not matter if you lose or gain weight in the months leading up to your wedding. Once your dress arrives, your seamstress can alter the dress to fit your actual measurements at the time. Bridal dresses can be taken in and they will have few inches that can be let out if necessary. Therefore, unless you go through several dress sizes in the months leading up to your wedding, you need not worry.
9. What information does the Barrie bridal consultant need to help me find my bridal dress?
Bridal consultants are seasoned experts in wedding fashion and can instantly identify the type of dresses that will look best on a bride. However, they will appreciate information like the wedding theme and what you like in a dress. Discuss these details with your bridal consultant. This will help her narrow down the options to dresses that you will like and will work in the setting.
10. How do I plan my wedding dress budget in Barrie?
Bridal dresses are expensive, and you can easily go overboard. So, do not go shopping till you finalize your wedding dress budget. This amount will depend on what you can afford and what type of dress you wish to wear. Also, remember that you should account for wedding dress alterations and accessories. The cost of designer wedding dresses in current collections will start at $1000. However, you can find cheaper bridal dresses if you plan your shopping in advance and explore wedding dress sales.
11. When should I ideally shop for my wedding dress?
Most wedding dress stores in Barrie take three to six months to deliver orders. Once your dress arrives, you will still need time for dress alterations. Therefore, we recommend that you go shopping for your wedding dress at least six to nine months before the wedding. This will give you plenty of time to explore your options and place your order. You will also have enough time to receive the dress and complete alterations in time for the wedding.
