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!
