"Bliss Gowns & Events created a pleasant experience for me as I shopped for my wedding dress. I was very nervous to be wearing a dress, and was very concerned about being judged while shopping. Everyone at Bliss was so welcoming and comforting. I couldn't imagine having that experience anywhere else! Thanks to Bliss I felt so incredible on my wedding day!! They also helped all of my bridesmaids find the perfect dresses! Everyone felt great! Their seamstress is also incredible, and very affordable!"'- Nicole Biro
"I could not have asked for a better experience! All of the ladies I interacted with at Bliss were beyond helpful during the process of picking out my perfect wedding dress!!
Not only that, they also stored my dress for me during the months before my wedding and were very accommodating whenever I wanted to come in for a(nother) fitting! I also ended up needing to get it taken in about 3 weeks before my wedding. Although they do not offer in house alterations, they referred me to a wonderful seamstress who was able to fit me into her schedule and alter my dress with 10 days to spare!!! To top it all off, they happily stored my dress again for me once my alterations were finished and had it steamed and ready for pick up the day before my wedding! I honestly can't say I have ever walked out of Bliss without a smile on my face."-Margaret Anderson
"Bliss is the best! From their unique and awesome selection, to the vibe of the store itself to the AMAZING women who work there... 5/5 experience all around. I would recommend anyone looking for a special occasion dress drop by Bliss. You won’t be disappointed."-Elyse Hebert
"I made the trek from Squamish to Nanaimo to Bliss Gowns & Events so I could shop with my mom, grandmother and best friend. It was a great day, the staff was helpful and took their time with me. I felt like a princess.
I purchased my wedding dress that day and was super excited that it arrived 2 months early!!!!! I was so happy with their service and the shop is just the right size to feel comfortable and not overwhelmed!!!
I would recommend Bliss to any Bride to Be! Thank you so very very much for helping me to find the dress of my dreams!"

"My Bridesmaids all ordered their dresses from Bliss for my wedding last month. The employees were ALWAYS friendly and helpful, and always made us feel welcome and accommodated (even when we walked in ten minutes before closing without an appointment, oops). The employees all worked diligently to quote my girls prices, as each wanted a different dress. Shawne was especially great to work with, and really helped us narrow down the designer, colour, and sytles. She actually came in to work during one of the worst snow storms I have seen in Nanaimo, just because she knew it was the final day for my bridesmaids to order their dresses and not all of them had done it. If she hadn't come in that day, as nobody else was able to, the girls' dresses would not have arrived in time for the wedding or alterations. She then proceeded to contact and reassure me (wow) and each bridesmaid, take their payment, and send us confirmation. Additionally, the seamstress, Carly-Anne, was efficient, affordable and pleasant. Way to go Bliss, one of the easiest experiences I had wedding planning!!"-Paige Nadeau
