Our eclectic range of bridal wear respects the diversity of each bride's personal style, while wholeheartedly honoring body inclusivity. From sultry, curve-hugging gowns to flowing A-lines and grand ballgowns, our collection serves petite to plus sizes with equal flair and charm. Subtle and elegant designs are available for brides who favor a minimalistic approach, while boho dresses with embroidery, lace, and whimsical
silhouettes serve the free-spirited bride. And, we haven't forgotten the statement-makers who don’t want to get hitched in white, or those in search of alternatives like a bridal jumpsuit.
Our style is exclusive but our vibe is for everyone. Freedom Bridal is the place where you can freely explore what you never considered as an option, or simply didn’t know existed. Most of our pieces can’t be found anywhere else on the East Coast!
Amidst the vast landscape of designers and bridal styles, our aim is to find those exclusive gems that aren't found anywhere else in New Brunswick, and often the Maritimes in general. We prioritize diverse style options to suit all brides—from those seeking classic elegance to our bohemian 'wildflower' brides, to those who want to break away from conventional bridal aesthetics.
Affordability is central to our sourcing strategy, ensuring our brides have access to an array of stunning gowns within their budget. But our scrutiny doesn't stop at aesthetics and price—we probe into the ethics and values of each designer we partner with, collaborating with those whose principles align with ours. And, crucially, we prioritize size inclusivity, ensuring that every bride, irrespective of size, has a wealth of gorgeous options to choose from.
Our special order gowns range between $1200 to $3500, with the majority falling within the $2000 to $2500 bracket, thus offering flexibility and access to premium designs for a diverse range of budgets.

THE FREEDOM BRIDAL PRIVATE COLLECTION
We love the work we do so much, that we specialize in it. For this reason, we don’t sell prom dresses, bridesmaid options, or mother-of gowns. We also don’t sell shoes (although if you already have your bridal shoes - bring those cuties to your appointments with us!!). And as much as we love the idea of repurposing and allowing a wedding dress to have a second (and third) chance at giving joy to it’s owner, we do not buy dresses from non-designers.
I found the perfect dress at the Freedom Bridal! Upon arriving at the boutique, Lisa welcomed me and my two guests and made us feel so comfortable. She made me as the bride-to-be feel so beautiful and special.
Lisa pulled the most beautiful dress that met my vintage style. She also found me the perfect veil. She made sure my purchases were within budget and that I had a seamstress to go to for altercations. Thank you Lisa so much. I strongly recommend Freedom Bridal!!

I was lucky to visit Lisa at Freedom Bridal at her new 4th floor location on Canterbury - and was so grateful for the calm, kind, and loving experience she crafted for me and my fiancé! The space was bright and welcoming (holy those big mirrors are beautiful!!), the change room was spacious, and the experience itself was awesome - it felt like a cute lil date (who says you can’t bring your future husband to help pick out your wedding dress)!!
Freedom Bridal carries a wide variety of colours, styles, and price points - and Lisa obviously cares about ensuring her boutique is size inclusive. AND all her gowns are sustainably made in North America. Saint John is lucky to have a bridal shop like Freedom.. thanks for helping me find my dream dress!!

My daughter had an absolutely amazing experience at Freedom Bridal. She has had some serious health issues over the last few years which has really affected her body image. Lisa was so kind, patient, and supportive. She gave my daughter the self confidence to step outside the box and choose a really unique and special dress.
We drove up from NS and it was so worth it! She could not have received the same kind of one on one focus in any other shop or found so many unique and beautiful dresses to try. Lisa is just tremendous and I just can't say enough good things about the entire wonderful experience. We love you Lisa!

I cannot recommend Freedom Bridal enough — between the absolutely stellar owner, Lisa, the atmosphere and the overall experience — it was an experience that I will never forget. As a bride, whose worn a dress about as many times as she has fingers on one hand (and hated every single experience) prior to FB, I was almost in tears with the absolute love and kindness. Lisa guided the dress session making sure that I was in comfort and making sure that I was aware of every little step and process. Although I didn’t find a dress, at this time (as I have plans on coming back), Lisa mentioned that she was more than willing to grab ideas from me and alert me when a dress that fit my checklist would be in store. TL;DR: Freedom Bridal is a must stop in Saint John, NB. Phenomenal service, environment! If I could give it a rating of more than five stars I would!
