    I have a GREAT success story to share with you ladies, in the hopes that maybe you will get lucky too!!

    I was planning on going on THE WEDDING DRESS hunt this weekend; I had been to a few places and fell in love with a few dresses that were a bit out of my price range. I also felt really uncomfortable trying on the dresses and felt quite FAT to tell you the truth....

    I was also going to take the Ivory Bridesmaid dress approach as I REALLY wanted an inexpensive wedding dress. It was not the biggest issue for me and I am still not sure exactly how many people would be coming to the wedding; so I couldn't justify spending a LOT on a dress.

    My future sister-in-law and I had a game plan; start out in the East end and work our way West checking out all the bridesmaid styles possible when I stumbled upon this website:

    Your White Dress - 103 Orfus Road - Toronto - M6A 1M4 - (416) 781-4571

    It didn't give much information on the STYLES of dresses that they offered but I was up to giving it a try, so we went there FIRST to see what they had.

    At first we were about to walk out the door, a LOT of the dresses were really out dated and looked like they were from the 80's but I sucked it up and tried on a few dresses. When I had tried on ALL the ones that we picked out, I was about to change back into my clothes when one of the girls that worked there and whom we had told it was for a destination wedding suggested that I try on a raw silk style that was in the size up. I said what the hell and she brought it in……..

    OMG – I fell in love. It was only slightly too big and the raw silk made it feel feather light. It looked lovely and although it was in a different style than I had anticipated buying I was in LOVE, it was absolutely comfortable and lightweight, although it had a train.

    My sister-in-law made me keep my head and not buy the dress on the spot, so we went to Windsor Bridal to check out some more styles. Don’t get me wrong I did see ones that I liked there too but this dress had enchanted me and I couldn’t stop thinking about it.

    So we went back, I bought the dress for $299. I have to get it altered by a third party but I am not too concerned about that and it gives me time to try to lose a bit of weight!!! When I had tried it on I noticed the name brand and it had registered in my brain but not entirely, the sales lady told me that it was a VERY EXPENSIVE BRAND – Pronovias!!!! When I got home I looked it up and I was able to find the style…it was from a few years back but the style is pretty timeless so I don’t really care!! I thought I would share this with you in hopes that someone else gets lucky too!!! :)

    P.S. If I get enough points I will Post a pic of the Dress!!

      Congrats on finding "the dress". I'm still searching for mine.

      By the way, you don't need to build up more points to share photos of your dress. See the link below for instructions on how to share your photos without actually uploading the picture files to this site.

        I went to Orfus Rd as well, but didn't try this store. When I went to Windsor bridal I was shocked at the price of the dresses... This was particularly because I had found 'the one' in another store and couldn't get it out of my mind!

        Please do post some pics of your find, it's super easy!! :) Just upload the pics to Photobucket and then copy the img code to your BDW post.

                      Hooray! I just recently found my dress, too, after going to a lot of stores so I can totally understand how happy you must be right now! Good for you to keep an open mind and stick it out. It's a hard thing to do!
