i have decided to cut my almost waist length hair back into a pixie cut (yes, before the wedding)...and being new to town, i haven't had my hair cut here yet. and when going for such a drastic change, i don't want a friggin hair-student to do it...lol

thanks!
I love my hair dresser, seems like there is never enough time when I go see her. She is younger and owns her own salon.

ok I'm officially a "two dress bride". Oh god, what did I do? I bought "the dress that got away" yesterday. And actually I thought I'd be freakin out about it but I feel stangely calm about spending basically double to find "the dress" Guess that's how I know I made the right decision. Now I've gotta get rid of dress #1 (or is it considered dress # 2 ?!) lol

Haha! Good for you for doing what your heart told you to do. In the end - you have to be happy, and if that dress does that for you, well, then no one can say anything different to you.
Dress #2 - is it possible to use it as a TTD? Or is it too expensive for that?? If not, then Im sure you could put it up on here and see what bites you get from it.
Good luck!
P.S> post some pics of your dress - we all want to see it!

Hey Ladies

 

I'm starting to book appointments to get my dress with my mom. I have been to a few stores but does anyone have any stores that they recommend. I'm hoping to not spend more than $2000. So far I am going back to Cameo & Cufflinks and I made an appointment at Bridal Centre. Any other suggestions

 

Thanks

Hi Linds,

I went to a bridal show in Airdrie a few months ago and there was a lady there that sells them out of her home, she says she has 200+. You buy it right then and there and take it home with you. She doesn't do alterations, so you would have to find another place if you picked one from there. Her prices are $499 or $699 and her dresses are new. The company is called Taffeta and Tulle.

My friend last summer bought her dress from the Bridal Group on 16 Ave across from Co-op and her dress was under $800. But I think you save money if you take the one off the rack, but again, I'm not sure!

I haven't been shopping for a dress yet but I would think with a budget of under $2000 you should find one!

Happy Shopping! I can't wait to go too!!

Modern Bridal is just off of 17th (not far off of sarcee side) It's a small place but the dresses are all beautiful and in plastic so it's nice to try them on. It is owned by an asian lady and her older mother (who is too freakin funny btw!) They are the best part of this experience because it is so small they dote all over you. I really can't say enough great things about them! Their address is 100,1935- 37th Street SW

 

Good Luck! I hope you can recognize the one you love right away and not be an idiot like yours truly!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
