Starting with only four employees Jeanette has built this customer service oriented salon up to over twelve well trained staff. Jeanette's carries top designers like Victor Harper, Simone Carvalli, Impression, DaVinci, Lazaro, Legends by Romona Keveza, Cristiano Lucci, Marisa, and the incredible Yumi Katsura as seen here... And if course Jeanette's Carrie Justine M Couture!
Allure Bridals is widely know as a very flattering, well made line of gowns and we just love them! Allure Bridals pursues excellence in design and irreproachable craftsmanship to create a gown worthy of a bride’s most treasured moments.

Allure believes brides should feel nothing less than gorgeous on their wedding day. Their designs blend rich fabrics like satin and lace with decadent beading and detailing, in addition to the comfort of our patented Allure construction. The result is three bridal collections: Allure Bridals, Allure Romance and Allure Couture and a debut designer collaboration with Madison James.

The creator of some of the boldest, sexiest and most show stopping bridal fashions we have ever seen, designer Galia is of Russian descent born into a family of seamstresses. She started out teaching art classes to students in her neighborhood. This is where her distinct artistic background stems from. It all started in 1985 in a small town called Ashdod where Galia launched her business of custom-made ivory lace appliques. Her lace appliques were unique and hand-made and years later the business developed into her haute couture fashion house. Today, Galia is designing for brides all over the world and customizing personal lavish evening gowns for celebrities on the red carpet. Although her roots are from the art world, she never forgets to combine art and fashion through each of her luxury creations. Over the last 30 years Galia has established a fashion empire by creating haute couture dresses and identifies herself as a designer of luxury aesthetics and detail.
We love keeping up with all the gown designer trends coming down the runway! Here's one of our most favorite styles for the fashionable bride to watch for in 2016 - the romantic blush toned, highly embellished bridal gowns by designer Jenny Packham!
And of course, a few thoughts on how to pair this beautiful trend with the perfect Justine M Couture accessories!
We think there are two ways to go with this type of strong gown design; equally bold or subtle. We would suggest something simple in design yet similar in sparkle like our Eddie Headband [this is one of the bold options!].

About the designer:
Lea–Ann Belter has been making beautiful gowns for a select group of brides for close to two decades.
Forever painting and drawing, Lea–Ann knew from a young age her future lay in her creativity.
Upon graduation from an art–focused high school, Lea–Ann continued her formal education at the Sheridan College of Crafts and Design where she specialized in glass and textiles. She then studied fashion design at the International Academy of Design and Merchandising, becoming a finalist in the Dubonnet awards, given to Canada’s top fashion students.
Earning her diploma at IADM, Lea–Ann trained with a couturier where she further refined the characteristics that define her work: flawless execution and impeccable quality. That year, Lea–Ann’s commitment to perfecting her craft made her a finalist for the International Woolmark Prize, an award for emerging fashion designers.
But Lea–Ann really found her calling when she designed a wedding dress for her brother’s fiance. In creating that first bridal gown, Lea–Ann’s meticulous execution and timeless aesthetic harmonized with her inclination to design for modern, professional women. Before long, Lea–Ann opened her first designer wedding gown boutique in Toronto’s exclusive Yorkville area.
Five years later, Lea–Ann’s vision for a line of modern, timeless bridal dresses became a reality when she launched the Lea–Ann Belter Bridal gown collection through a network of retailers. In 2005, Lea–Ann opened the first Lea–Ann Belter Bridal flagship store on Toronto’s Queen Street East, and in 2007 she was named Wedding Gown Designer of the Year at the Canadian Wedding Industry Awards.
Since then, Lea–Ann has extended her reach, making her wedding dress collection available in a curated selection of bridal boutiques across North America and Europe. In 2012, Lea–Ann moved Lea–Ann Belter Bridal and her designer wedding gown boutique to their permanent home in Toronto on the corner of Dundas Street and Broadview Avenue, where she plans to spend another 20 years (or more!) designing and crafting wedding gowns.
