I tried finding a wedding dress at typical wedding dress store. I searched all over Western NY striking out everywhere. None of the dresses seemed like me. I decided to venture to Toronto for a custom dress. From the moment I spoke to Kim, I knew she had a lot of experience making wedding dresses. I was very unsure of the process and her confidence was what I needed. I didnt have the same custom dress experience that most people had. After my canvas fitting, COVID happened and I wasnt able to go across the border. I also didnt understand the custom dress process and didnt realize I couldnt change my dress after the canvas fitting. During COVID I decided that I wanted a different dress design. Kim and her team were able to pull off the new design based on a picture I sent. Her team worked so hard to make sure ever little detail was absolutely perfect. Kim is amazing and I cannot say enough good things about her and her team!!
Kim and her team are amazingly kind and talented! She created my dream dress and made the entire experience one I will never forget. My dress is so unique and beautiful, exactly how I hoped it would be. She made sure it fit perfectly. The new shop is so beautiful as well as all the bridal accessories that are also available. We found a hair piece that was absolutely made for my dress! I cant thank Kim and her team enough for truly making bridal dress shopping an experience I will forever cherish!

Kim and Sonia at Valencienne are a dynamic duo. I came into the shop with a very unique idea in mind for my wedding dress. They brought my vision to life and to my surprise fully understood my vision. I wanted gold embroided purple bohemian tea pirate dress that mimicked the design of my tattoos. They where not only able to create this for me, but the dress they hand crafted was even more beautiful than the image I had in my head. I highly recommend Kim and Sonia at Valencienne for whatever enchanting creation you so desire to have for your wedding day. Thankyou so much to both of you for making my dress and for getting it all done even during covid-19! Much love
I have tried a minimum of 50 dresses at various stores between Hamilton and Toronto. All the dresses I tried on were not unique enough for my dream wedding in Santorini. I knew which dress I was interested in in Valencienne Bridal. I first saw a photo of the dress on their website. Luckily the dress was available in the store a few days before my appointment. I was the first one trying the dress. After that day, I couldnt stop thinking of the Valencienne dress, and I knew I finally found my dream DRESS.When I first walked into Valencienne, I was so impressed by the beauty and high quality of the garments. Kim is so friendly and welcoming and professional. From the first day, I knew that I could completely trust Kim and her team. They have lots of creativity, knowledge, and skills to make gorgeous customized gowns. My experience was terrific, and I highly recommend Kim and her team for their dedication and passion! I guarantee you will never regret your decision.
Kim designed the dress of my dreams and then some! She is so warm and welcoming, and helps bring your vision to real life! Over and above my dress, Kim made my purse dreams a reality - I could not find the right clutch for the big day -- but Kim once again was able to make it real! It has a permanent place in my walk-in :) I cannot recommend Kim enough! She made my dress, my Mother's, both our clutches, and she's currently making a Maternity outfit for me! I cannot think of anyone else I would trust this much with such important items. Thank you Kim!!!!
