Every week, SmartBride Boutique will be compiling our Top Picks from dresses posted across Canada to keep fellow smart brides on top of what's catching our eye! Hopefully some will catch your eyes too!


1. Trendy in Toronto mermaid style dress
One of this year's trends in wedding dresses is the mermaid dress because it hugs the body in all of the right places: cinching the waist and flaring at the bottom. This size 8 Alvina Valenta dress was purchased for over $2800 and is for sale on smartbrideboutique.ca for $1350 - a $1450 savings! The dress is made of very high quality silk-satin, with Swarovski crystals under the bust. The train is chapel-length, with a hook so that the train can be shortened for the reception. This dress was posted for sale by a Toronto smart bride.
