Irene Mei (Owner)
Our owner and soon-to-be mom, Irene started Fairy Dreams with a goal in mind: to bring a new kind of shop to the bridal boutique industry.
After searching endlessly for her wedding dress in Ottawa to wear for her wedding in 2017, Irene was left with frustration. All the dresses looked the same, very few offered private appointments, and few carried the designers she yearned for. This was when the idea to create her own bridal shop popped into her mind! And so, the adventure of Fairy Dreams began.
Irene’s goals for her boutique are:
- to provide the best boutique experience for her visitors
- to carry the world’s top designers that can’t be found anywhere else in Canada
- to help her brides create memories that will last a life time!
Vania Monterroso (Bridal Stylist)
Finding her passion for the wedding industry in 2016, Vania started out as a wedding planner. After a few years as an entrepreneur in her wedding planning business, Vania was recruited to join the Fairy Dreams team in July 2020.
Her favourite part of working in the wedding industry is working with the brides themselves - helping them to create their dream day, a day they will remember for the rest of their lives.
“My favourite part about working here is when a bride finds her dress. It's usually an emotional moment and I'm a sucker for moments like those.”
Outside of the shop, Vania loves to dance, and can often be found dancing alongside her daughter at home. She eloped with her husband under the Brooklyn Bridge, wearing a dress by Mikaella Bridal.
