Chester & Felicity is Atlantic Canada's most exclusive bridal boutique. Our store offers premium collections for the bride including veils, headpieces, jewelry, belts and more.
We carry bridal lines from: Essense Of Australia, Stella York, Paloma Blanca, Mikaella, Pronovias, Martina Liana, Wtoo by Watters, Willowby by Watters and Blue by Enzoani.
Our sister store, "All Dressed Up", specializes in Mother of the Bride/Mother of the Groom and guests of the wedding attire. They also have a great selection for both formal and informal occasions.
Favorite bridal look: I'm a pretty glitzy, fashionable person but there's something about a classic satin or crepe gown that's timeless and elegant. I love a fit & flare that's a blank slate, that way the bride can be an artist and make it her own.
Favorite bridal accessory: Veils! I love the drama they can add! The longer, the better!
Best piece of advice: Remember, it's your day. Do not make a decision based on the opinion of others. Pick what feels best for you!

About me: Former Disney princess turned fairy godmother. Working in bridal is a dream job for me. Ever since I can remember, I've been in love with weddings (my favorite part? the dress of course!). I love a good "love story" and always look forward to hearing my bride's! A few random facts about myself is that I've traveled to over 25 countries and I love to experiment with new recipes in the Kitchen. I am originally from Ottawa and although it was a bit scary moving to a new city, Halifax has been very welcoming & I love being next to the ocean!
What I love about Chester & Felicity: Meeting inspiring women every day. My favorite moment is when we see a bride put on a gown and instantly fall in love with it. Everyone in the room can tell it's the one. She sees herself the way she would on her big day and it's truly a moment of beauty.
Favorite bridal look: Romantic, dreamy and whimsical.
Favorite bridal accessory: A veil! One that compliments the dress without taking away from it, maybe with some lace or a bit of sparkle.
Best piece of advice: Listen to your heart and live in the moment. If you feel amazing in your dress, don't be afraid to have your "yes to the dress" moment!
About me: I am originally from Yarmouth but have been working/living in Halifax for the last 7 years. I've worked at a few different retail locations but working in bridal is definitely my favorite! When people say "your job must be so fun" they couldn't be more right! We have so much fun working with our beautiful brides to make their vision come to life! In my spare time, I love to hang out with my friends and family, play board games and drink wine (I mean who doesn't!?) I also love to travel and have a soft spot for all animals but puppies are my weakness. Fun fact, I have 4 crazy dogs, one being named after Phoebe on "Friends".
What I love about Chester & Felicity: One of my absolute favorite parts about working at Chester and Felicity is the moment when a bride steps out in the first gown she's trying. Whether she loves it or thinks it's not what she's looking for, the first dress always gives a special moment as well for her guests as it's usually the first time they are seeing her as a bride. Mom's tend to get a bit emotional in this moment as they're seeing "their little girl, all grown up".
Favorite bridal look: I love simple and classic. I love the look of a clean, satin dress, such as #4894 from Paloma Blanca. I think this look allows for the bride's beauty to shine through and it's a look you'll never regret.
Favorite bridal accessory: I love a good hair accessory! There is so many options you can do when it comes to hair! Whether it be a clip with some sparkle, a simple headband, a flower crown or even incorporate a vine into a braid. These accessories can add the perfect touch of glam to your look.
Best piece of advice: My best piece of advice for brides is to not be afraid to say yes to the dress your first time out or even on your first gown. It happens more often than you think, especially if you've been looking at wedding dresses since you were 16 (like me). Trust your gut and remember at the end of the day, you're the one wearing it so pick what you love most!
