"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 had the most wonderful experience at Bliss Gowns & Events. They were the only store on the whole island willing to accommodate my tight wedding deadline. They went above and beyond to make me feel like I was the most important client they have. I cannot wait to see my Maggie Sottero Wedding Dress. If your thinking about shopping here for your bridal gown, DO IT. These ladies are amazing!!"-Kristina Bjornsson
"Yes and Yes! After 2 full days, 5 shops and 60 dresses later I found my wedding dress at Bliss Gowns & Events. It was a dress I would not have picked for myself however Braeja listened to my wishes and paid attention to my body type, she found the dress for me! I'm so glad I trusted her judgement. The store is beautiful and the variety of wedding dresses are amazing. Honestly after 5 stores I was blown away with their gorgeous stock. They carry beautiful, quality gowns at very reasonable prices. My mom also really enjoyed being able to look for mother of the bride dresses while I shopped. If you are wedding shopping on the island don't miss this store. I promise you won't be disappointed."-Melisa Agnew
"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
