The woman at Helene's tried to get me to be her dress up doll and kept putting veils on me even though I told her I wasn't wearing one! I did fall in love with a dress there, but thought I should see more.
Our last stop was LA Collection and I tried on a few more, but then tried on the dress I loved from Helene's and knew it was the one! And LAC was $115 cheaper. The girls were super nice there and no pushy at all. And they actually accepted that I didn't want a veil, and brought me flower options instead.
Has anyone booked their DJ for the social yet?? I have no idea how to pick one or how early to book them!
That is great you found your dress! do you have any pics of it?
I have started peeking around online, but have not gone to a store yet, my best friend bought hers from Stella's, they are pretty popular, I'll do the rounds downtown as well!
As for the DJ, I'm not sure how far you should book it, I can ask my friend, she used DJ (Platinum Productions) â€“ 269-5535, they were good, she was happy with them! I'll probably go with them as well. Our social is not until next October, so other than booking the hall, I have not done anything else yet.
Are you going to the traditional late snack with meats, cheese and bread? We were thinking of ordering a bunch of pizza instead. I have been to a couple of socials who have went that route. It was a nice change!
