Calgary Brides!

Recommended Posts

Oh I had never heard of them! Will need to make a trip there for sure since I will be paying for my girls' dresses... Whatever savings I can get the better! Was hoping to keep under $150 each.

Not sure if they have stores anywhere else. I wore a BM dress from their store in Cross Iron but it's since closed. The one in Sunridge has been there eons! It's on the Target end of the mall on the upper level. I think David's are nicer material but everyone has their own styles and opinions, you know?

Calgary brides.. I am desperate, does any one have very small number stamps?

I have the letters but can't find numbers to go with. No bigger than 1/4 of an inch...   my girlfriend had some that are 1/2 of an inch but they are much too big.  

 

I am using these to personalize the postcards we are using for our guestbook. I could leave our wedding date off but would like it there if possible.

 

Thanks!!!!!

What about getting something made at staples? They might have something. Or what about making clear labels on the computer and sticking them on? 

 

So I went to Oksanas's to see what dresses they had. First off they looked at me like I was a weirdo when I asked them if they had periwinkle dresses hahah. They didn't have any by the way, but said they could order them in. The only bad part is that they don't have fabric swatches and periwinkle is one of those colors that everyone calls it by a different name so I need to see it at least before ordering. I was looking at weddingtonway.com and they seem to have some really nice ones. I can actually order the swatches to make sure which one is the color I need. The downside being that we all need to take a leap of faith and order without trying them on. Lucky for me my maids of honor would look good in pretty much anything hahah but I don't know if they want to take that leap of faith. We're going to check out a few places over the Christmas break and I guess online will be our last resort.

That's too bad they don't have samples, but atleast you can say you tried -- did they have any dresses you liked?

 

When we ordered our dresses we had to take a leap of faith too.  2 of the 3 BM's live in BC. Thankfully myself and other BM were in David's Bridal to see that their measurements/dress sizes are fairly accurate.  We lucked out. They need minor alterations but the sizes were appropriate.

 

I already stamped a lot of them because I really like the look, so going for a label wouldn't work at this point. I had considered that early on though!! Either I will find something or we will leave the date off. I mean it's a guestbook, so not every page has your wedding info on it - meaning it's not the end of the world but I would prefer it. It's like the postal code of the address hehe.

This is the stamp I have. You can always put this one and then write in the date by hand :)

Thanks for posting. I love that stamp but for my postcards it may not work :(

Here's what I've done--maybe I'll just leave the date off.

I found a set that's perfect on eBay but it's china so I doubt they'd arrive in time!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
