The Story of White Satin
White Satin started in 2010 with the goal of bringing something unique and fresh to the world of bridal fashion in Ottawa. Since then, we have grown into a beautiful bridal house, giving us the chance to create a wonderfully intimate and exclusive experience for brides of all sizes and budgets. In 2017, we moved to our current location in a beautiful stone house in Kanata which has allowed us the space to carry an even wider selection of Ottawa-exclusive dress designers for our brides.
Our Stone House
In 2017, we moved into our current location; a stunning stone house on Hazeldean Road in Kanata. With multiple private showrooms, our stone house allows us to categorize our extensive inventory and accommodate several private appointments concurrently while still offering the same exclusive experience. To honour the name of our boutique, our bridal showrooms are named after some of the purest and softest shades of white.
The Dove Room
This beautiful blush coloured room is the home to our entire off-the-rack selection of wedding gowns and occasion dresses. Within this room, our guests can find an incredible collection in a range of styles by over 25 talented designers. Discounted up to 40% off the original price, our bridal selection features samples in sizes 8 to 12 and ranges from $800 to $3000.
The Pearl Room
Located on the first floor of our boutique, the Pearl Room includes a private and spacious viewing area, along with a fitting room that is perfectly placed for the dramatic reveal you’ve always imagined. Brides and their guests are encouraged to browse our assortment of gowns from 7 affordable and versatile designers offering stunning styles from $1500 to $2500.
The Ivory Room
Experience the intimacy and exclusivity of White Satin in the Ivory Room. Spanning the entire upper floor of our boutique, you’ll find 14 designers that specialize in quality and couture designs. Your guests can lounge comfortably in the privacy of our showroom while you dress up in fabulous gowns, that you could only dream of, ranging from $2500 to $8000.
