Over 1500 gowns heavily reduced in price.
Wedding Gowns at $99, $199, $299, etc...
Prom Dresses starting at $49.
Bridesmaid and Gala Gowns starting at $15.

General Information
The Gala Expo begins at 10am and the gown sale starts at noon (11am for VIPs). There will be no need to line up for the gown sale! We will be giving away bracelets for the gown sale right at the entrance at the time of arrival at the Gala Expo on a first-come first-serve basis. Basically the first people to arrive will make up the second wave into the bridal gown sale after VIPs. We will be staggering the waves across the day, and the emcee will announce when we are ready for the next group to be ushered in. This is to allow time for gowns to be put back on the racks, to afford a more favourable shopping experience for everyone, and to enable everyone to enjoy all that Gala Expo has to offer and the wonderful vendors and entertainment, and not have to be waiting in a line! There will be lots of mirrors and plenty of gowns for everyone, with over a thousand from which to choose! 

Do we need to register?
Please email " " titled "bride" with your name, address, phone number, and wedding date.

You can purchase tickets through the Moncton Coliseum Box Office, online, or at selected participating sponsors. The sale will begin at noon, which is two hours after the doors of the coliseum open.

A ballot for a chance to win the grand prize will be given upon entrance of the show.  There are other ways to receive ballots for a chance to win. No purchase is necessary.

Important Tips

What are some tips to be a successful gown shopper at the show? 1. We recommend wearing leggings and a tube top/tank top/sports bra so you can try gowns on anywhere.
2. Please leave the make-up at home (to avoid getting any on the dresses),

3. Please be considerate handling the gowns. Donít put/leave the dresses on the floor, or take more than 3 or 4 at a time. Please put the gowns that you have tried on and do not wish to purchase back on the hanger. Please be considerate of the gowns, and of the other brides! If we see people abusing the gowns, they will be kindly asked to exit the gown sale.
3. We recommend bringing helpers who have similar taste in style, to hold your belongings, and help you try on gowns.
4. It may sound ridiculous, but it may be helpful for you and your helpers to wear matching colors or hats. It'll be easier to find each other in crowds and it may add some fun. Reception for cell phones may not work.
5. Arrive early to be in the first wave in the gown sale for best selection, or later when it's calmer.
6. Be considerate giving up the gowns you are finished with quickly so that other brides have a chance to try them.
7. Most gown sizes run small, so it's certain you'll need a size or two bigger than your usual clothes size. A perfect fit is rare... We will have several local seamstresses on site for advice on alterations.
8. Be open minded. The dress of your dreams may not be the style you had in mind since you were a little girl... you'll never know until you try it on!
9. Prom grads: we will check our school sales list to avoid duplication of a gown worn to the same prom. Please keep in mind we don't have control over sold gowns from other stores. Although, if it is a discontinued gown, you're even more likely to have a unique gown!
10. Most importantly... Have Fun!! If you find a dress, great! If not, come visit us at ACS Formals for our new lines!
