SINDERS BRIDAL HOUSE
Ottawa's premiere bridal shop
for over 30 years
Sinders Bridal House first opened its doors in 1987 and has become one of the premier bridal shops in Ottawa. That’s over 30 years of helping brides find their perfect wedding dresses! It’s safe to say that a lot of bridal trends have come and gone since then. Still, one thing that has never wavered is the pride we have as a family-owned bridal store in Ottawa, along with the care, attention to detail, and passion each and every member of the Sinders family brings to the table. For us, it’s not just about helping you find the perfect dress that celebrates you and reflects your personality, it’s about creating an amazing experience along the way.
Just like snowflakes, we know that no two brides are the same, which is why our experts go above and beyond to find you a wedding dress as unique as you are that highlights your natural beauty. Because for us, there’s no better feeling than catching that sparkle in your eye and seeing your jaw drop to the floor when you’ve found THE dress – except seeing you glide down the aisle in it, of course.

Brides Have to Say
“There was a wee bit of a miscommunication with my bridesmaid dresses and I was worried I wouldn’t be happy with the final colour. Amanda helped me and took lots of time out of her day to ensure my girls and I all left happy!! Would recommend asking for her when you go in! She's great!”
“This is the place to get your dress! I had a wonderful experience finally after having a horrible one elsewhere. The other place made me feel so generic and like everyone was getting married and it was no big deal! It was a last-minute decision one night to go dress shopping at Carleton Place. My mom had seen this place while passing and she thought it was beautiful on the outside so she drove us right there. As soon as we walked in we were welcomed even though we were supposed to make an appointment. I told them my budget and they made great arrangements to meet it. Bonus, we...[ read more ]”
“My experience with Sinders was beyond what I could have possibly hoped for. As a self-conscious bride, they put me at ease right away. Amanda was a dream consultant to have and made sure every dress I put on was flattering. I had told her what dress I had admired online and we found it, and it ended up being the one! Amanda accommodated me on a busy Saturday to come back and show my mom THE dress. Thank you Sinders!!”
“I had a wonderful experience at Sinders. It was a lovely afternoon and I felt very pampered. Kim is an exceptional bridal consultant and I would highly recommend her. Congratulations on the outstanding service and selection.”
““I said yes to my dress at Sinders Bridal and would like to thank the staff and owners for going above and beyond in helping me find my dress and help me with alterations! I have been to a few bridal shops in the Ottawa area, and by far Sinders tops them all with its amazing customer service! Special thank you to Kim for being so pleasant and accommodating with all my questions, and even leaving the store open a little longer for me so that I could decide on my dress! Heading back there in one week to pick up my gown and cannot be more excited!””
“After seeing their dresses on the runway at the bridal show in Ottawa, I knew I had to go check this place out! This bridal house has a great selection of dresses and the best customer service! Huge shout-out to Amanda for helping me finalize my purchase for my wedding dress today! I HIGHLY recommend this place. Thank you to all the wonderful staff.””
“I had the most incredible White Carpet appointment at Sinders Bridal House where I found my wedding dress. I don't often write reviews but this place really deserves it. Everything was perfect and the staff was so lovely. I had the pleasure of working with Amanda who deserves her own 5 stars! I would recommend this place to any bride to be in search of her perfect dress! Thank you for everything Sinders Bridal House :)”
“Amazing service! Ruth helped me choose THE perfect dress for me. I had no idea what I wanted, but as soon as she brought the one, I knew it. This was going to be MY dress! Romantic, flowy, just the perfect dress for my body type and wedding venue. I would recommend Sinders without any doubt!!”
“They are amazing! We were in the area and asked if there were any openings that day to come in - they accommodated us right away with a full room and our own stylist! The way they let my full party browse the 2 show rooms was such a pleasant surprise as no other store has allowed that. Great selection of gowns and prices! On a more specific note; Amanda was absolutely wonderful! Can't say enough positive things about my experience with her! Highly recommend! I love my dress and I loved Sinder's! Thank you so much to everyone there!!”
“I cannot thank Amanda enough for her help yesterday! I walked in there not knowing what I wanted in a dress at all, after asking me a couple questions she came out with some dresses for me to try on. I loved every one of them, and the very last one took my breath away. I never thought of myself in a ball gown but after putting it on and seeing the look on my bridesmaid’s faces I knew it was the one. Also, the fact that you have a whole private room all to yourself is beyond amazing! Amanda, thank you, thank you, thank you for making me feel...[ read more ]”
“Sinders is definitely worth the trip! The building is beautiful with a lot of room to try on dresses. The staff was so accommodating and friendly and make sure that you stay within your budget which is awesome! Beautiful collection of dresses to choose from.”
“Said yes to my dream dress at Sinders Bridal last night!!! I had found the dress a week earlier but came back with my future mother-in-law, sister-in-law, and maid of honour to try it on again. I was very impressed with the service, expertise and overall atmosphere. The beautiful heritage house also adds character to your fitting. I had been to 10 other stores and this experience was by far the best! My only critique is that I wish there was a bigger selection of veils... I also didn't know they had bridesmaids’ dresses (until I checked their Facebook posts) but I definitely need to go back and do more...[ read more ]”
“Obsessed and highly recommend this bridal house! All the ladies in my family have had good luck here. Amanda helped me find my dress within the first 6 gowns. She really listens to what you like and don't like.”
