Great Dress... You look fantastic!

 

where did you find it?

 

Am I recognizing the salon correctly? Bridal and Beyond? Mississauga?

 

The Riu Bachata is a gorgeous resort as well... you'll love it... we were there in 2006 January and had a wicked time!!!

Thanks everyone!!

 

Amarillis,

No...it's Bea Shawn in Brampton. A small little boutique...they include alterations in their price!!! Bonus!!!

I actually found the dress in a VERY small shop in Deer Lake Newfoundland (of all places!!). I went "home" to visit my mom & took advantage of the visit to go dress shopping with my mom & MOH because I knew I wouldn't be able to again. I wasn't expecting to find anything since it is a town of less than 5000 people!! I loved the dress, but since it was my first time out I decided to wait because for sure I thought I could get something cheaper & better in the big city of Toronto!!! Well...I did find something cheaper! After a few trips to some shops (B&B in Miss. included!) I found a great dress at an outlet store. Paid under $350 for it!! Woohooo what a steal!!?? Wrong...I changed my mind!! It was very nice, but not "beachy" enough for me. I sold it on Kijiji for $140 less than I paid for it!! But at least I have the dress that I want now!!

Wow...that turned into a long post!! LOL

Sorry for babbling!!

I thought I recognized it :) My daughter's bridesmaids dresses came from there. They also altered my dress for me, even though I bought it elsewhere, and only charged me $10.

The only advice I would have for you is that when you go in to be fitted for the alterations go in when the store is not busy. Like the morning of a weekday. Don't go on a Saturday when the place is packed and they don't spend as much time with you.

Your dress is lovely!
