TORONTO/MISSISSAUGA, ON, March 3, 2011 - David's Bridal, the leading U.S. bridal and special occasion authority outfitting more than one in three American brides, is proud to announce its expansion into Canada. Renowned for providing beautiful designs, incredible value and superior service, David's Bridal is excited to make its mark in Canada with two new stores in Mississauga and Scarborough.

To commemorate the expansion, a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held at the Mississauga store (Meadowvale Shopping Centre at 3105 Argentia Road) at 10:30 a.m. with introductory remarks from Mississauga Mayor, Hazel McCallion. David's Bridal chief marketing officer, Brian Beitler, Craig Debenham, senior vice-president of stores for David's Bridal, and fashion director, Catalina Maddox-Wagers, participated in the grand opening festivities. The ceremony also signified the official opening of the Scarborough store at SmartCentre Scarborough (1900 Eglinton Avenue East).

"Love knows no boundaries, and today marks a new tradition of providing style, quality and value to customers throughout North America," said Brian Beitler, chief marketing officer of David's Bridal. "We're excited that Canadian women can now enjoy the same unique bridal service experience and affordable bridal and special occasion gowns and accessories that Americans have relied on for over 60 years."
