There are some brides that come into the boutique and look stunning in absolutely everything, but there is one dress that you secretly hope they choose because it suits them so much that it will forever be ‘Carries Dress’. “Bianca” from Blush by Hayley Paige was made for Carrie and we are so glad that when we reached out she was thrilled to share her day with us!
Name: Carrie Amborski

How did you and your hubby meet?
"Mike and I met in a real estate finance class doing our MBA - he tried to flirt by telling me I was sitting in his seat, and I was offended. I got over it pretty quickly and a few months later he finally asked me on a date. The rest is history :)"
What was your favourite part of your wedding?
Our recessional. It's hard to describe what we were feeling but some of the pictures capture it. "We were just over the moon happy and these were some of the best seconds of our lives. Another epic moment: After our introduction into the reception, the MC and her twin sister, both bridesmaids, sang our love story to Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" we had no idea that they were going to do that and it was so hilarious - arguably better than the original."
His favourite part?
"Carrie walking down the aisle - no brainer!!!"
Any tips for future TMB brides?
"For dress shopping, relax and let yourself enjoy it! If you've found your way to TMB then know you're in good hands and any dress you pick is going to be gorgeous. And don't worry if you don't cry! I didn't and I LOVED my dress. For wedding planning in general, don't lose sight of what the day is ultimately about! Whenever I got stressed with the minutiae of planning I came back to this and I knew as long as we had a place to get married and someone to marry us, everything else would be ok."
She even shared her thoughts on being a TMB bride right after she tied the knot!
"I just wanted to send a note of thanks for making the entire process of dress buying so relaxed and fun. Your store is so beautiful and I'm so glad I made the decision to buy my dress at The Modern Bride. Every drive from Toronto to Guelph was worth it and I would recommend The Modern Bride to any bride in the GTA - your carefully curated selection of wedding gowns together with your amazing (and low-pressure) service and serene atmosphere create the perfect setting to find a dream dress."
We are so thrilled that Carrie shared these photos with us! We are over the moon for both this couple and wish them every happiness as they navigate this life together! Congratulations Carrie & Mike!
