Absolutely loved the whole experience from walking in, to walking out. The ladies were fabulous and made me so comfortable. Margarita and Adrianna both were so pleasant and helped me find my dress. Highly recommend.

I had the most amazing experience at Cande Bridal. I've had two visits here and they were both incredible. My first appointment I was helped by Adriana, and for my second one I was with Chelsea. Both of them were lovely and made me feel super comfortable and confident throughout the entire process. They were the utmost professional, and the shop itself has a beautiful selection of gowns and all around just good vibes. Needless to say, I said yes to my dress at Cande!

Had an amazing experience at Cande. Chelsea was incredible and made me feel so beautiful! She was great at picking out dresses that fit what I thought I wanted and also picked out some dresses, including the one I bought, that I would not have picked myself but loved! Would highly recommend to any one. Very personalized experience and felt no pressure to have to buy.

Amazing experience! I fell in love with a dress by Lillian Wild and reached out to their Instagram. I live in Prince George but happened to be going to Kelowna that weekend. Cande actually reached out to me to set up an appt for the Monday(although they were really busy they squeezed me in!) which was perfect because my mom was still in kelowna with me and was able to be there as well! From the minute we entered the boutique the ladies were welcoming and cheerful! They gave me multiple options to make sure I felt my absolute most confident self in the dresses. I ended up choosing the very first one I loved from Instagram and a veil from Lillian Wild as well! Will cherish my experience today, it seemed asif it was “meant to be” and it was absolutely perfect!!! Thank you Cande!!

While I ultimately did not buy my dress from Cande, they were by far THE BEST boutique I have visited!The boutique is absolutely gorgeous. From the perfectly curated wedding playlist to the giant pampas décor, it is a gorgeous setting exclusive to you and your party.Chelsea is an absolute gem! She was genuinely interested in my and my partner's love story and everything she pulled was absolutely gorgeous. She is so friendly and so kind, it feels like you're shopping with an old friend rather than a consultant. Days later, my MOH and I couldn't stop talking about how much we loved Chelsea and how special the experience was for us.Highly recommend visiting this bridal gem in Kelowna!

It was truly such a great, personalized experience! I was the only bride in the store during my appointment. Both ladies who helped me were so kind, friendly and easy to be comfortable around. It was my first and last stop to find my dress- better than I could have asked for! Chelsea was also fantastic with my concerns about timing. I highly highly recommend going here!

I visited Cande Bridal Boutique third, and last, in a weekend of wedding dress shopping from out of town. While the other boutiques I visited earlier were very nice and the consultants helpful and professional, the “experience” in the first two stores paled in comparison to the experience I had at Cande. From the moment we walked in the door, we had the whole place to ourselves and were allowed and even encouraged to look through the dresses (something actively disallowed at the other stores.) Our consultant, Chelsea, was so friendly, funny, and personable that it made it feel like I was wedding dress shopping with the help of a friend, rather than a stranger.Before coming to Cande, I was struggling to find a wedding dress that felt “right” and the other stores didn’t seem to have much within my budget that I liked. However, after only a few moments at Cande, our consultant Chelsea had pulled several dresses I liked far better than anything I saw at the previous two stores. I felt like Chelsea really listened to what I wanted and selected so many beautiful choices for me that I honestly could have bought and been thrilled with 3 or 4 dresses I tried on that day. I eventually narrowed it down to one choice, and I am so excited to try it on again in a few months’ time. I would highly recommend Cande Bridal Boutique to anyone looking for a beautiful dress and cannot say more about how much I loved my experience there!

I can’t say enough good things about Chelsea at Cande bridal boutique. From the moment I walked in the door she was engaging and interested in me and my wedding. She picked the most beautiful gown that I ultimately said yes to! She made the experience so fun, had amazing energy and went above and beyond for us. Thank you Chelsea! You deserve 10 stars!

Although I ended up getting my dress elsewhere, I had such a great experience at Cande. It was my first bridal appointment and our consultant made it so fun and laid back. She was very welcoming and friendly and their natural lighting made everything look amazing! I highly recommend and I wish I had found my dress here because it was such a great experience 🙂

Cande was by far the best experience I had looking for a wedding dress in the Okanagan. Adriana and Chelsea were both so amazing, welcoming and helpful as someone who wasn’t sure what silhouette or style they wanted. The dress selection was amazing and perfectly curated - they had beautiful options in almost every style. Highly recommend as your first (or only) stop!!

I’m a little late writing this review as I had an appointment at Cande Bridal in the middle of March. However, my experience at Cande Bridal was everything I had hoped it would be. I went to my appointment having no idea what I wanted but Alex and Chelsea were extremely helpful and listened to everything I had to say. The options were endless! The dress I chose was 1 of the first 2 I tried on but they still took the time to find multiple other dresses and styles to try on just to be sure. When I was starting to become a bit overwhelmed from all the dresses I was trying on, they had me try on 2 dresses that I would never pick, just to give my mind a break and to have a little additional fun! I would definitely 100% recommend Cande Bridal to everyone; the space is beautiful, the options felt endless, and the girls were amazing and we had lots of fun!

Adriana was a huge reason why I ended up buying a dress from this shop (and, I found a unique dress I wasn’t able to find anywhere else!) Her warm greeting, her patience, being flexible, and friendly went a long way with me. Her customer service was so wonderful from the moment I tried it on, to picking it up.

Cande Bridal was the best experience I had at any wedding dress store! I felt so comfortable and relaxed in the environment. Chelsea was absolutely amazing! She chose dresses for me that I never pictured myself in and she was so right! I felt beautiful! I loved her sense of humor and kind spirit! The dresses were stunning and fair and reasonably priced! I am so grateful I got to have such a fun experience dress shopping!

I had a wonderful experience dress shopping at Candè Bridal. My consultant was so friendly and kind, she listened to what I was looking for, and brought so many beautiful dresses for me to try.Even though my wedding day is soon and it limits my options, she went out of her way to find me every option in her store, including dresses that could be rush ordered.She made my day with my family and friends feel special, and I’d recommend this shop to anyone looking for a wedding dress. You will not be disappointed. 🙂

From the moment we arrived, to the second visit on the same day, to the celebration of the "yes", the consultant made this experience everything it is meant to be: magical. Thank you Chelsea for demonstrating your understanding of how emotional, significant and important of a decision this was for TyLynne. You were attentive, genuinely engaged and asked just the right questions to make her trust your help. And you included us, the entourage, in the excitement. This was more than dress shopping; this was a significant moment in a her life and you made sure it was stellar. Bravo! Highly recommend this boutique.Mother of the Groom

Fantastic experience. Yes, you need to pay $30 for your appointment but it was more than worth it. The space is gorgeous and they have a big variety of dresses and styles to choose from. Michelle was great and she felt like a friend. She listened to what I liked and disliked and brought me beautiful options. It was really nice having the whole space for me and my group. I would absolutely recommend booking an appointment at Cande.

I found the dress and had the most amazing time! It felt laid back, fun and also super cute and glamorous all packaged up into one appointment. They were accommodating and had a great selection for a small boutique. They did their research before my appointment, so we really hit the ground running when I arrived! They made me feel special, beautiful and helped me find the PERFECT dress!!

My experience at Cande was nothing short of amazing! The boutique itself is so peaceful and beautifully designed and I loved that I had an opportunity to browse the dresses myself and pull a few to try on (something I didn't have a chance to do at some of the other boutiques I went). Both the owner and one of her Bridal Consultants were so friendly and encouraging and made me feel 100% confident and at ease - they were so complimentary and pulled dresses that completely aligned with my vision! I am so so happy with the dress I chose and look forward to trying it on again when it arrives!

The entire experience from booking my first appointment to picking up my dress was exactly what I wanted it to be. The atmosphere is very calming and warm. The girls were all so relaxed and helpful. I didn’t feel pressured at all, like I had in other shops. Carolina was so encouraging and sweet, and Michelle was incredibly patient and really helped me narrow things down - I’m pretty sure Michelle knew which dress was mine before I did. Picking up my dress when it came in was a breeze too, and they gave me some names/numbers to contact for my alterations which was so helpful! Everyone I interacted with was truly so genuine, and I felt like they really cared about me finding the right dress. Truly the best experience all around, from start to finish. I can’t say enough good things.

We found ourselves at Cande when my daughter-in-law's wedding dress didn't fit because of her ever growing baby bump and we were forced to find a replacement. We were frantic as the wedding was only a week or so away. We were squeezed in and pleasantly surprised by the help we got.I was worried when we stepped off the elevator as the boutique looked very exclusive. I didn't think this was the place for us. The consultant was absolutely amazing. She worked within our limited budget and treated us with the utmost respect. My daughter-in-law got her bridal moment and we found the most beautiful dress that when altered slightly, suited her perfectly.I would send anyone to this boutique!!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I cannot say enough about how wonderful my experience at Cande Bridal was. Not only were the consultants amazing, but they were able to pick out my dress first try just based off of a couple of photos of styles I liked. We continued to try different options to make sure it was in fact my dress, and everything they brought me was absolutely beautiful. When I was trying to figure out if I was going to say yes to my dress they stepped back and let me think it through, they were not pushy at all and let me have my moment. If you are looking for a wedding dress this place is a must!!!

I can't say enough good things about Cande!!! They have the most beautiful shop and dress selection. The staff are incredible! I had my consult with Carolina, she was so helpful and so sweet! She did not make me feel pressure to buy or make up my mind - she genuinely cared that I found my dress! And at the pick up appointment Michelle was the best hype woman ever!! And Adriana answered all of my questions calming all my nerves! They made the experience of buying a dress so much more better than I could have ever imagined! I can't wait to walk down the isle in my dream dress! Thank you 💕

Wow! Adriana is incredible and makes you feel so special as a bride - and their boutique is beautiful! Even with my short timeline she made sure she found some options in styles that I love. I fell in love with the very first gown I tried on and while I didn't end up purchasing that gown, my experience at their boutique was exceptional. Thank you for such a special experience trying on gowns for the first time!

I had a fantastic experience at Cande!!! As an easily overwhelmed person, she provided the perfect relaxed and fun appointment. I was listened to and the boutique is beautiful! I had an appointment at another store and was debating buying a dress there but the no pressure environment of Cande made it so much easier to say yes here. So glad to have found the perfect dress at this local business and would 100% recommend it to anyone looking for their wedding dress. Thanks Cande!!!

Cande Bridal Boutique is a truly unique bridal experience. The women involved in this business are as excited as you are when you find your dress and they do everything in their power to make it a special experience. I chose my dress 11 months before my wedding and had some second thoughts during that time, Adriana encouraged me to come back into the shop, try my dress on again, and go from there. I still loved my dress and felt so reassured, it truly put my mind at ease. The boutique is full of beautiful, hand picked gowns and it’s also a beautiful space to choose your dress. Thank you again ladies of Cande!

My experience with Cande Bridal was fantastic. Adriana is such a lovely person and took the time to talk me through my dress decision. I was torn between a dress here and from Bliss, and at no point did I feel pressured by her to pick the dress at Cande. Obviously she was excited when I picked hers, but I could tell that she really cared about what was right for my wedding day. I would definitely recommend going to Cande for beautiful dresses and amazing service from someone who knows what she is doing!

Can't say enough good things about Adriana and Cande Bridal! Adriana was so kind to me and my family and welcomed us with open arms during my first appointment. She really takes the time to get to know you and your story, she loves her job and it truly shows. I wasn't even looking for a dress when I had my appointment but I ended up finding the one. My appointment ran a little bit later than expected and Adriana had plans later that evening, but she took the time to help me make the right decision and to help me turn my vision into reality. The boutique itself is so cozy and welcoming with an amazing selection of gowns. I would encourage any bride to check out Cande Bridal, it will surprise you in the best way possible!

I made the trip from Vancouver to Kelowna to check out Cande Bridal and I am so happy I did!! Adriana is so sweet and I love supporting local small business’. I was able to find my dream dress at a sample sale so I saved a lot! The whole experience felt very personal as we had the store to ourselves and we got champagne!! I would definitely recommend this bridal store to anyone looking!

All I can saw is wow. Shopping at Cande Bridal Kelowna was such a great experience. Adriana was super professional, kind and genuinely invested to help me find my dream gown (which she did!)It was my very first day trying on dresses, so I was nervous and unsure what experience i may have but Adriana made me so comfortable and welcomed. It was also really neat having a private appointment so her attention and focus was on me the entire appointment.I would recommend this salon hands down to anyone looking for bridal gowns in the Kelowna area.Thank you again Adriana - looking forward to seeing you and the gown in the next 6 months !!

How AMAZING is this place? I went looking for my wedding dress and the second we got upstairs into Cande it felt like a wedding gown store out of a movie. The room to show friends and family the dress is adorable, they’re able to enjoy champagne while waiting, I loved every dress I tried on, and the store was laid out beautifully. Most importantly though!!! Carolina, who was helping us find a dress, was so kind, patient, excited and happy to be there, and understood what I was looking for even though I didn’t have the clearest idea myself yet. We even accidentally went a bit over time because we were having so much fun, and she never made me feel rushed. You can tell she loves her job. I recommend this place to everyone.

Absolutely amazing experience!! I´ve been wedding dressing shopping for the past 9 months around Vancouver, the Fraser Valley and the Okanagan and I can without a shadow of a doubt say this place offers not only the most original and diverse collection but the best service.Adri the manager understands the stresses of the moment and really works to make the experience memorable. We brought champagne and we were not only welcome to have it but offered glasses and ice for it.The staff are clearly educated in fashion and customer success, they truly understood my vision and the wedding focus, helped me narrow down dresses to look through and try that were within my budget. They even made me realize I had a missconception about certain styles. I didn't feel pressured for anything at all and actually found my dress during the appointment!I would recommend this place over any other a million times, I am very grateful for everything they´ve done!
