With a crop of outrageous talents across the country, Canadian bridal designers have made names for themselves on a world stage. Their own homegrown bridal couture is sure to set even the most fanatic of fashion plates in a tizzy. Below is a primer on some of the biggies that you might not have even realized hailed from the Great White North: Rita Vinieries of Rivini, Ines Di Santo and Sarah Houston, plus some newbies like Mike Derderian and Gianni Falcone, childhood pals from Montreal whose lavish collection Pavoni is already in demand in Abu Dhabi and Dubai just two years after launching. We’ve also included some essential pointers: style, price range and bridal boutiques where you can browse a bevy of jaw-dropping Canadian designs. We can’t promise you’ll spot your dress in Bride Wars like your friend who wore Vera Wang, but we’re willing to wager a healthy sum that you’ll find something equally spectacular.
