I just wanted to tell you how beautiful Andria looked in her wedding gown. Just absolutely amazing!! I also got many compliments on my dress. We had the photographer take a picture of Andria, myself and the grooms mother in our dresses especially for you and will forward it when we get it.
I remembered you said you never get to see how your brides look so I thought you might enjoy this little video as Andria bought her dress, shoes, veil, head piece and bracelet from you, which all came together so nicely that day.
Thank you to you and Debbee for all of your help!
Patti Klauck - Mother of the Bride
Deepest thanks for everything.
My dress truly wowed--- to say the least---- and people gathered all around the upper area of the Grand Floridian at Disney and just watched my husband and I have photos done etc. I felt truly gorgeous. The beads etc. that you chose were beyond breathtaking.
Thank you so very much for caring so much about my wedding when I was one of so many brides.
Jaymi Edwards (Disney Bride)
Thank you again to you and your staff for making my wedding dress hunt easy and memorable. You were all so accommodating and helpful and personable. You treated everyone in a special way and not just another peron buying a dress.
Thank you so much with all your help with my wedding gown, maid of honour dress and bridesmaid dress. Everyone looked amazing!
Andrea Sockovie (Bride)
Hello Mary and all the wonderful staff at Marilee's,
I wanted to send you some photos of the vow renewal ceremony that my husband and I recently celebrated with our family and friends down in Mexico. It was a wonderfully meaningful day for us all, and we truly appreciate all your help in making it happen.
As you may remember, my husband Pete is an OPP officer who suffered a tragic motorcycle accident while on duty back in June of 2014. Unfortunately he lost his leg at the scene of the accident and his other leg was badly damaged. He remained in an induced coma for thirteen days following the accident, and underwent numerous surgeries during that time. For weeks, we were not sure if he would be returning home to us.
Pete remained in hospital for four months. With four children at home missing him, this time seemed to pass very slowly...but he is a fighter. We had a family trip to Mexico planned for Christmas and New Years, and he was determined that we would not cancel it - despite the doctor's predictions! We decided that not only would we go, but we would renew our vows while there. What better way to celebrate that we still had him in our lives. This was another chance to express our love for one another. We fell in love as high school sweethearts, have been married for almost 18 years and have been together for 25 years. Family and friends decided they didn't want to miss the celebration and decided to join us on our trip.
My daughters and I chose dresses from Marilee's Bridal, and they were absolutely perfect! We renewed our vows on the beach and then had dinner and dancing under the moonlight. We could not have asked for a better day.
Thank you and your staff again for all of your help. We truly appreciate all the care and consideration that you demonstrated to us. We will undoubtedly recommend your store to others for years to come.

I just wanted to say thank you to Ashley for helping me find my perfect bridal gown. Thank you so much. I love wearing it on our wedding day.
I would definitely recommend you and your staff to anyone getting married – you made me feel special and worked hard to make things easy for me. As a bride there are so many details to look after and you took all of the worry about my dress away – our wedding was held at our farm and the dress was perfect – it looked like a wedding from the 1920's – I felt comfortable and beautiful – thank you so much!!
Marlene Conway Diels (Bride)
Thank you so much for my beautiful gown that I bought at your store for my Queenston Heights wedding on June 21st.
Heather Hefferman (Bride)
Dear Mary and Marilees Team,
From the first point of contact, through the initial consultation, fitting, picking accessories and even a delightful post-purchase breakfast, you and your team were amazing and surpassed any expectation I had. Your team made the experience enjoyable and fun! So, thank you for helping me find my perfect wedding day ensemble, as the (beautiful) cherry on my wedding day cake which will be remembered forever. I do not hesitate to recommend you.
Sandra White (Bride)
"There are no words to describe how much I appricate everything you did. I have had nothing but compliments on how fantastic the dress was. So much better then the crappy dress I had bought online. I learned you certainly get what you pay for! Your staff was amazing and so helpful. Thank you again for making my wedding dress dream come true."
Melissa Adam (Bride)
"I got married July 27, 2013 and purchased my gown and veil from your shop. I got so many compliments on the dress, and absolutely loved the way the dress made me feel. Just wanted to send my sincerest thanks for all your help, and for helping make the day such an absolutely perfect one. Once again, thank you."
Jessica Davies (Bride)
"Thanks so much for helping me find my perfect dress!"
Laura Rispens (Bride)
Our glorious wedding day could not have been possible without the help and skilled knowledge from Marilees Staff. They pulled a dress from your vast collection based on my rather vague description. I wasnt convinced that a woman of my curvy size and age could pull off my Marilyn Monroe vision. They encouraged me to give it a go that I had great curves and they were right. It was love between the dress and me instantly. As a result we also found perfect dresses for my jr. bridesmaid, maid of honor and my mom. Thanks again for all your help.
Diane Garrington (Bride)

Lovely family photo with all the ladies dressed in their fabulous Marilee's fashions for this memorable day.
Thank you, Mary Lalama, for helping me find my wedding dress. I truly felt beautiful on my special day and my dress had much to do with that. You really are an expert at what you do! Thank you for making my dress shopping experience at Marilee's a wonderful one.
Lisa Sheppard (nee Bennett)
Dear Mary, I can't thank you and Debbee enough for all of your help. My dress set the tone for the whole wedding. I received so many compliments on my dress and so did our mothers.
Andria (Klauck) Woodcox
I cannot thank Mary and her staff enough for putting me in the most beautiful dress and veil I have ever seen! I felt amazing and the look on my husband's face was well worth it! I would send every bride to Marilee's for your patience and expert service.
Marissa Biebert (nee Furry) married on October 20, 2012
Our wedding day was amazing!
Our family and friends thought my dress was beautiful and that it was the perfect fit for me; simple but elegant. I received numerous compliments about it - especially about the gorgeous lace-up back. Of course, everyone asked me where I got my dress and I did not hesitate to tell them that it was from Marilee's Bridal and that I had the best experience picking it out!
Stephanie Lockhart (Bride)
"Here is a photo of my husband Marcelo and I on our wedding day. We're standing out front of Oak Hall Estate in Niagara Falls where our reception was held. I received sooo many compliments on my dress and I think it fit our day perfectly. My intricate lace gown went so well with the classic elegance we were going for, and I was told the dress suited me perfectly by so many of my friends and family that I know it was a true representation of my style and personality.
Our day was truly perfect and I want to thank you and your staff for playing such an important part in it. Many thanks!"
Ashley Kennedy-Cooper (Bride)
I wanted to say how excited I was to show off my dress on my wedding day in September! It was perfect for me. I went to 4 stores prior to coming to Marilee's and the experience I had at the other stores was not good. My maid of honor and one of my bridesmaids recommended you to me. The day I came to Marilee's I was not aware that I needed to book an appointment, but Nancy was nice enough to work with me and let me know that you always are happy to assist brides if you have someone available.
She took the time to listen to what I was looking for, although I was not 100% myself. She also was able to stay within my specifications and well within my price range. Needless to say I found my "perfect" dress that very day! I wanted a very simple dress with no train, nothing over the top and Marilee's staff managed to find it. Your staff went above and beyond to help me make my day special. I am so very pleased with your store.
Jen Clark (married September 15, 2012)
The staff at Marilee's was wonderful in helping me figure out exactly what I wanted. I could not have asked for a better experience! Thank you!
Crystal Adams (Bride To Be)
I wanted to send you a few photos of my wedding gown which I purchased at Marilee's. And to say a big thank you! The staff at Marilee's were very helpful - particularly Debbee - and it was great to be able to purchase my dress from a local business here in Niagara. The lace, along with the long train, completed the romantic, timeless look I had wanted for my wedding day. The dress was perfect for our garden wedding in Beamsville on July 14, 2012 - a day that was so full of joy, love and laughter.
In addition to purchasing my dress from Marilee's, I also purchased a crystal choker necklace which I turned into my headpiece (as seen in the photo), along with a pair of crystal earrings to match.
Thank you so much. I will be recommending Marilee's to all of my friends & family who are searching for their wedding/special occasion dresses.
Camilla Frazer (Bride)
Marilee's staff would like to congratulate Vicki Scammel on her beautiful wedding!
I came in to Marilee's today to try on a few dresses that I had seen in magazines. I tried on a few that were very similar to my pictures and then something completely different that Debbee pulled for me. I ended up loving the one she suggested for me and buying it my first trip in! Debbee was great at helping me with all the dresses and there was no rush to get me in and out. Thank you so much!
Katrina Zancola (Bride)
My name is Megan Nickel and this past June I had both my prom and graduation. I was wondering what I would wear to both events and where I would go to get my dresses. I decided to go to Marilee's Bridal in Fonthill and am I ever glad I did. From the moment I walked into the store I was treated like a princess. The staff were so helpful as I wasn't quite sure what I wanted in terms of length, style and even colour. As I talked with the staff about what my vision was they led me to a couple different styles and helped me pick out the colours that would look good on me. I would recommend Marilee's to anyone looking for a formal dress. I can't thank the staff enough and especially Mary for all her help, she went above and beyond what I could have expected.
Megan Nickel (Grade 12 Grad)
Myself, Maja Vuckovic, along with my husband, Petar Vuckovic, had an amazing day on June 2, 2012. The day was full of laughter and joy. Everybody thought it was such a great joyful wedding. That day was the most beautiful thing that has ever happened in my life. I was the happiest woman when I got into my wedding gown. As I entered the hall peoples' jaws dropped and I got comments such as: "WOW, you look beautiful;" "Your dress is just gorgeous;" and "Wow, you look like a princess!" I really felt like a princess in my gown and that was my wish all along even throughout my childhood. The gown fulfilled every moment that day.... it made me so happy that my husband said, "Wow!"
Mary, thank you so much for showing me this gown. I will always treasure this day as well as Marilee's.
Thank you so much,
Maja Vuckovic - Bride
Mary and the Staff at Marilee's,
Thank you for all your help in selecting the perfect dresses for my daughter and myself. We received many compliments on the dresses. Our Cruise was fantastic.
I didn't know where to even begin looking for dresses and was dreading having to look all over to find something I would like. But, somebody recommended Marilees and I decided that might be a good place to start looking. I am so happy I did, because I found a dress within a couple of hours with some exceptional help and found all the accessories as well. I didn't have to shop in any other stores! I was extremely happy with my dress and with all the services I received from you all. The personal touches really were great as well. I thoroughly enjoyed the bride's breakfast too. It made me feel very special.
The wedding day itself was perfect. It was exactly what we wanted. Although we were the ones getting married, the main focus was on God and what He has done for us. Everyone commented on how beautiful the dress was and how beautiful I looked. I didn't have to worry about the dress not fitting right and I could relax and enjoy our special day, the people and the dress, something I really appreciate and still think back on today. I would not change a thing.
I have recommended you and your store and will continue to do so. Thanks so much for all you have done for me and wish you God's richest blessings as you continue to help others!
Andrea Halkes (formerly Eckhardt) - Bride
Just wanted to send along a HUGE thank you to all of the staff at Marilee's for helping me find the perfect wedding gown! Thank you so much! The day was perfect, filled with many blessings of family, friends and of course a commitment that has changed Ryder's and my life. Thanks for your part in what we pray is the start of a God-centered and blessed marriage! Blessings!!
Darlene Cnossen (nee Hultink) - Bride
"Our wedding took place in the middle of a tropical storm in Kauai Hawaii! A record was set for the highest amount of rainfall in 1-hour, landslides closed the bridge to the north shore where the ceremony was taking place. Our hair and make-up person, photographer, caterer, limo, sound and lighting person, florist etc. were stuck on the other side of the bridge. The wedding planner encouraged us to move the date of the wedding but we were determined to get married on the date engraved on our wedding bands. And at 3:45, the sky cleared and the rain stopped.
Our 4pm wedding started on time. Not a drop fell during the ceremony or during pictures. The rain started again at 5pm and didn't stop for 3 more days.
Our families rallied and we pulled off an incredible, beautiful day. We moved the location of the reception to a house where family was staying. The bridge opened just in time for friends who were stuck to get to the wedding ceremony, the flowers arrived just after the ceremony but in time to make an appearance in pictures. Tables, chairs, linens and catering were set up 15 minutes before guests arrived at the reception house. My bridesmaids took great care of me, did hair and make-up, and took "before" pictures. The food was delicious and the drinks flowed! Everyone had worked hard, but everyone had fun! And the dress held up wonderfully! Though it was a little muddy, I got so many compliments on the design and style of my Robin Jillian. It worked perfectly with the embellishments from the bridesmaids dresses. I was very pleased. My husband and I ended up with a perfect wedding day in the most beautiful place in the world. We both feel very very lucky that everything worked out the way that it did."
All the best!
Elissa & Jason Fesyk
"Your service was excellent! Your "first pull" was perfect and I cannot imagine my day in anything else! Thank you! "
"I would like to sincerely thank you for all that you did when I chose my gown. You were very professional and I had a lot of respect for you and the way you run your business. I would, without a doubt, refer your store to anyone interested in purchasing a gown.
Our wedding was held in Jamaica on March 1st and it was the most amazing setting for a wedding. We celebrated the ceremony with our 2 daughters. Everyone continually commented on my gown and how perfect it was for an island wedding. It was so incredibly comfortable and flowed so elegantly in the breeze. I was told it looked "classy, elegant and sexy all in one". I was thrilled to hear the positive comments.
Again, my thanks, and I wish you and your team all the very best!!!!!!"
"Our wedding day was a perfect day at the end of November, everything went according to plan and was beautiful! Everyone loved my gown and so did I! I felt like a princess all day long! Everyone loved the style of it, the way it fit my body but also how it was modest. They loved the detail on the bodice and the shimmering organza on the bottom of the gown. My dress was more than I ever could have imagined! It was perfect, there is no way to describe it. Thank you for helping me find the perfect dress!"
Cassie Hannaford (nee Otten)
"After searching throughout Toronto and the states, I found my perfect dress at Marilee's, here in my hometown. The staff is absolutely delightful and I can honestly say that Marilee's has the best price and selection on dresses and accessories, hands down. Not only did I find my dress, I was also able to pull it all together with the many great accessories that they sell as well. Thanks for such an awesome experience! Everyone at my wedding said that the dress was "so me," and that is all because of Marilee's."
Amanda Boetto (nee Rice)
"I found the wedding dress of my dreams at Marilee's. It wasn't the dress that I had in my head when I started looking with my mom but it turned out to be absolutely perfect and I felt amazing on my wedding day! Thank you to Mary and her team for their help."
"Thank you to the ladies at Marilee's for making the search for my perfect dress not only stress free but enjoyable! My dress was absolutely perfect and I couldn't be happier!"
Jillian Huzarski (nee Bower)
"Our Wedding Day, on October 1st, was wonderful. My husband simply loved my wedding gown. My family and friends thought I looked stunning and radiant. I felt like a princess and it felt great! My wedding gown was adored by all and I had several questions as to where I had bought it. "Marilees!" I said, and the whisper of your name filled the room, it was wonderful.
The cape I rented gave it that extra special touch and it kept me warm as it was a little chilly.
Thank you for all your help!"
"Congratulations to Deanna White (nee Morris) -- a beautiful Marilee's bride on June 4, 2011!"
"I am so glad I went to Marilee's to buy my dress, because I didn't think I would be able to find something that would suit me, that I would be comfortable in, and that I would feel beautiful in. The moment I walked into Marilee's and spoke with a consultant I knew I was in the right place. It was the first and only place I went to. After trying on only 4 dresses, I found the one. The moment I put it on I had tears in my eyes because I knew I had found my dress! For the first time I felt like a princess!
You ladies made my dream come true on my wedding day, because I just wanted to feel beautiful for once in my life, and I did! I am very self- conscious about my body, after having my son. The amount of compliments about myself and my dress brought tears to my eyes all night. When I had my dress on I felt beautiful, and like a princess. It really hit me when my Husband's niece came up to me and told me I was the most beautiful princess she had ever seen, and I had the prettiest dress ever!
Thank you so! so! so! much for making this experience for me so beautiful! I have already recommended you to everyone I know!"
"Rich and I got married on Friday September 2nd and our day was PERFECT!!!! The sun seemed to be shining just for us. Of all the things that happened that day, I was sure of these two, I was marrying the love of my life and my dress was perfectly made for just me! We had 172 of our closest family and friends to celebrate and I was so excited to show them my dress.
I bought my dress before we had even booked the Hall. It was the second dress I tried on and all the other dresses failed in comparison to this one. The beading and jewels were the highlight of this gown! Mouths and jaws dropped when I walked into the church. Everyone loved the dress and, of course, wanted to know where I purchased it.
I have been stalling in having the dress cleaned and put away because I want to wear it everyday! I would do the laundry, clean my house, or just relax and entertain in this dress. I would love to have a dress made that has the same top as my wedding gown. Thank you for all the help and support with my wedding gown. The team at your boutique is professional and caring."
Mrs. Tara Maddox
"Thank you, Mary, so much for your help choosing the perfect bridal gown and bridesmaid's dresses for my special day. You were so encouraging and made the whole thing so easy! I felt like my vintage Hollywood vision came true on my wedding day -- Thank you!"
Kristine Barnett (St. Catharines)
"Thanks again for your help in choosing the perfect dresses for our destination wedding. My little tomboy hockey player looked like a lovely lady in her bridesmaid dress, and it fit Raiven perfectly. With my stunning dress off the sale rack and the gorgeous tiara, I truly felt like a princess on my special day. Thanks again!"
Deanna Hills-Zahra (St. Catharines)
"To the lovely staff of Marilees:
I just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you for the excellent service I had the pleasure to experience this past summer at your very fine shop. The staff at your shop not only attentively listened to the many demands I made in my search for the ideal wedding dress, but they also responded and delivered the aforementioned wedding dress without breaking a sweat. In fact, the only moisture being produced during that appointment was exuding from the tear ducts of myself and my present mother-in-law and they were, I can assure you, tears of the most pleasant sort of emotion. Thank you again for making my experience as a bride everything that every woman hopes it will be: beautiful and effortless.
I have attached a picture of myself in my lovely Maggie Sottero gown in case you were interested in seeing how it all turned out. Thanks again, and all the best!"
Courtney Peaker (Grimsby)
"It was such a pleasure dealing with your store. It was funny how Carly was getting tired of looking for "thee dress" and I mentioned we were going to Fonthill to have a look. All the way there she kept saying if I don't find anything I'm going to take a break from looking. Then we meet Ashley and that girl only picked out 2 dresses for Carly. A miracle happened and it was the first dress Ashley had picked for her! It was like Ashley knew. It was and always will be a great experience and I highly recommend your store to others."
"To all of the girls at Marilee's Bridal,
Thank you all so very much for helping me find the perfect bridal gown and perfect bridesmaids dresses! Also, thank you for helping me choose the best colour matches for my maids' dresses so that they would co-ordinate with the groomsmen!"
Sarina & Mark
"Thank you for all of the help that you gave me in picking out my bridal gown. You all made me feel very special. I will spread the word on how great you are!"
"I had a wonderful experience on Saturday. The stylists helping me were great. I am so happy I found the dress."
"Thank you for all the help of picking out my dress. You ladies made me feel very special. I will spread the word on how great you all are."
"I just wanted to thank you for the amazing experience I had at your shop this past weekend. I had been to several shops and tried on many gowns. I was beginning to feel jaded. Ashley was exactly the consultant that I needed. She listened to the information I gave her and pulled dresses, veils and sashes that were what I was looking for. I hope in the next month I will be able to bring my mom to show her the gown I bought, she was unable to come that day. Thanks again, I've been raving about your shop since last week and recommended it to my other brides friends who are on the hunt."
"I had a wonderful experience today at the shop. I purchased a Mother of the Groom dress with the assistance of Laura. She couldn't have been more helpful, patient, and encouraging. She donated almost two hours' time to helping me try on several dresses and make my choice. I was shocked there were so many dresses to choose among for a short, ageing, not overly slender woman. Laura made it fun, suggesting accessories and alteration options to enhance my outfit. In the end, I chose a dress and jacket that were off the clearance rack. That was a lot of effort and attention to detail without a significant profit.
I wanted to share my appreciation and to compliment Laura for her excellent skills and lovely manner. Another very pleasant employee shared her expertise and advice as well.
All in all, I had an excellent experience and am thrilled with my dress. Several colleagues advised me not to shop at a local bridal boutique but to go over the river for better selection and prices. I'm glad I didn't listen!"
"Thank you to all of you at Marilees for helping me to find the perfect dress! Especially, thank you to Ashley and Laura who assisted me. I had such a great experience with both girls, and would highly recommend your store. I'm so glad that I found my dress at Marilees, and I cannot stop thinking about it! Further, thank you to Ashley for the lovely postcard that I received in the mail today."
"My experience at Marilee's was absolutely amazing. All of the ladies were excellent but Carleigh and Mary specifically took care of me and truly made it a special experience. I would recommend Marilees to any future bride I know. Thank you ladies."
"Amazing experience! Attentive service and they really new what I wanted! So happy I found this place. I would highly recommend this salon to everyone!"

"I just wanted to send a quick email thanking Mary and Debbie at Marilees for assisting me with finding my dream wedding dress. Mary was a great consultant and was a pleasure to work with. I went to my appointment not expecting to find something I loved because I am a bit indecisive of a person. Mary was able to suggest gorgeous gowns for me to try on and I absolutely fell in love with the gown that I bought. I ended up finding not only my gown but a gorgeous veil and necklace as well. I am a wedding coordinator and I cant wait to refer future brides to Marilees."

Donna Parisi (Port Colborne)

Very quickly I was being serviced by one of the lovely ladies, was made to feel welcome that I was visiting and received no pressure from anybody. I was offered the opportunity to try something on but when I declined I felt no pressure. However, the warmth that I received from all of the ladies, left me feeling that I wanted to try on a few dresses. I ended up purchasing the perfect dress and accessories, mainly due to those lovely ladies with their knowledge and advice. Thank you so much.

Allison Wyatt nee Verroche
"I showed up without an appointment ( I didn't know) to merely browse and ended up buying the first dress I ever tried on. All of the ladies in the shop helped me find the dress that is perfect for me. I really appreciated the time and effort they all put forth for me.
I just wanted to thank you and your girls for being so attentive and helpful. I didn't realize how great you guys were until I went with one of my bridesmaids to visit another bridal store that is closer to home. We were practically ignored there. We were left to wander around the store, browse dresses, pull dresses out, try them on, and put them all back by ourselves. There were three ladies in the store and yet only one of them gave us limited help. Otherwise, all three just sat by their desk gossiping. Nobody asked us if we were looking for bridesmaids dresses, wedding gowns, or anything. This is a stark contrast to you and your co-workers. Although your store is a little out of the way for me, the service makes the trip certainly worth while! Thanks again"

Robyn Buonomo (Hamilton)

We were treated with so much respect and kindness that you always made us feel that we were the most special bride and mother of the bride even though is very evident that you have a large client base.
We appreciated your opinion on our dresses, jewelry, veil, and shoes. We were totally pampered by the professionals in your shop. Our items even came in before expected which really helped to make planning Allison's special day much less stressful. I have recommended your shop to many new brides to be and will continue to do so for many years to come."

Lindsey Queen (Welland)
"My experience at Marilee's was fabulous! My consultant was so patient as I tried on dress after dress until I found the right one. I loved trying on all the Maggie Sottero gowns that were at the store for Marilee's Trunk Show. In the end, I found just the right one on the sale rack. I could take it home that day, no waiting for it to come in, and I only spent $500. My bridesmaids, who were a variety of sizes found the right dress that suited all of them, and my mother,who hasn't worn a dress in 15 years, found something elegant and comfortable. Thank you Marilee's!"
Sarah Braun (St. Catharines)
"I just wanted to thank the staff at Marilee's from the bottom of my heart! Tammy really made my wedding dress shopping dreams come true. This was the fifth store my mom and I had tried and I really wish I would have come to you first! I tried on two dresses and the second one was "the one"! I will recommend Marilee's to everyone and I am VERY impressed with the one-on-one service and advice and especially the up-front knowledge that the staff are not on commission.That really makes wedding dress shopping stress and guilt-free! I am also very thankful that although you require appointments you were able to squeeze me in on a Saturday afternoon. I understand that shops are busy at this time and I am so grateful that you were so accomodating!
I just wanted to let you know that I truly enjoyed my experience with you and I am SO thankfull that we found you! The store is elegant, personal, and very comfortable. Thank you so much again and I will see you when my dress comes in!
