Attention brides! What’s harder to choose than your wedding dress? Why, your bridesmaids’ dresses, of course. With your dress, you just deal with just your opinion (and perhaps your mom’s). But bridesmaid dress selection often involves a chorus of opinions, body types, colouring, and in this town, a scarce selection to boot. That’s where Frocks in Kitsilano comes in, making it easy for Vancouver-area brides and bridesmaids to find the perfect dresses.
Pretty and Modern
Say goodbye to sea foam, and bid adieu to cotton-candy pink nightmares. Frocks carries the latest creations by some of North America’s top designers, including Charsa, Jenny Yoo, Lynn Lugo, Saeyoung Vu, and Thread. The cocktail-inspired dresses are fresh, modern, and exquisitely made with dreamy fabrics in luscious colours. Their simple and elegant designs allow bridesmaids to re-wear the dress for other occasions. It’s simply too good to wear just once! Frocks also carries a selection of bridal gowns. Think timeless and elegant; no puffed sleeves and lace confections in sight.
Drop by Frocks’ quaint Kitsilano boutique, which stocks over 100 sample dresses and hundreds more fabric swatches to help you get a better feel for the dresses. Staff will be delighted to sit down and help you narrow down your choices. Some brides like choosing the designer and colour themselves, then letting their bridesmaids chose the style of dress to suit their body type. The dresses are custom-ordered but are not made to measure, so some alterations may be necessary.
Good to know: Order at least four months in advance of your wedding to avoid rush charges, and sooner to avoid headaches.
