Thoughtfully made wedding dresses, for the Wildflowers. Once upon a time, the designer & dressmaker of Abigail of Gardenia began to dream up a whimsical collection of gowns.  Maureen opened her first boutique in 2005, and has been creating gowns for brides all over the world ever since. Designing under the label "Abigail of Gardenia" , Maureen wanted to create a collection of unique made to order gowns, inspired by the wildflowers.

The first Abigail of Gardenia collection was released in 2016, and year after year has been producing thoughtful & whimsical collections featuring timeless silhouettes and fanciful details. Each Abigail of Gardenia gown is handmade in Maureen's Northern Canadian studio, tucked away in the boreal forest. Maureen believes a woman's wedding gown should compliment her natural beauty, and she strives to accentuate the feminine spirit while expressing enticing elements of fanciful surprise.

In our collections, you will find timeless gowns with unique and feminine elements that make each gown special, and definitely a gown you will want to treasure for years to come.

"I highly recommend Abigail of Gardenia! Maureen provided a professional and personable service which exceeded my expectations. Admittedly, I was sceptical about ordering my dress online but Maureen put me at ease when we e-met for my online fitting via Facetime.
The design was simple and elegant and the sequins gave it the WOW factor that I was looking for. What a dress, what a service!" –Hanna
