About Us

At The Bridal Salon, it's about you and your style, our goal is to offer you our one-on-one personalized service to help take the stress out of your dress search.

The Bridal Salon is a well-established bridal business, originally located on Water Street in downtown St. John’s. It was established in 1989 by The Comerford family. In 2008, Tilly took over this family owned/operated business and today it is recognized as the bridal industry leader in this Province. It has grown into the largest salon to offer you the largest selection of choices right here at home. It was the first in this province, to offer clients a stress-free one-on-one bridal experience. We are competitively-priced (bridal, bridesmaid, mother-of-the-bride).

Our goal is to focus on the customer, offering our clients personalized attention. Our objective is to make every experience at our store an enjoyable one, thus customer service is our top priority.
