We found the BM dresses at Femme de Carriere (definitely not traditional BM dresses). I got my dress and veil at Evalina Couture and I cannot say enough good things about Evalina. I absolutely love that woman! She just "got" me. I had been to the Bridal Centre and Ethos first, saving Evalina's for last, and at both Ethos and the Bridal Centre, they could not seem to accept that I wanted my dress to have really clean lines and I didn't want strapless (it just does not look good on me). Then I went to Evalina's, and it was like she could read my mind. I ended up getting a Romona Keveza dress there and my veil was by Evalina. I know people who've had great luck at the Bridal Centre and Ethos though, so I think maybe they just weren't a fit for me, but could totally be for someone else. That said, I very highly recommend Evalina's!!!

I wish I could have found the color I wanted at J Crew (they look so comfy and put together), but I just couldn't. I just picked up my fabric from Olga's yesterday, and I loooove it! Can't wait to see the finished products on my ladies!

The lady at Olga's also gave me two other referals
Nina (in Crowfoot area) 241-9404 and Juan (Kensington area) 282 6110
I think I will re-check out the firtst lady, but also "interview" the others for pricing and work. Lin was great to design and make without a pattern and reasonably priced.
Tell your gf if those areas don't work for her to phone Olga's and ask- the owner there has people she will refer to all over the city.

J Crew can be ordered online as it is an American store.
Kind of nice (even though it is a drive either way) that you can justify dress shopping in both Cgy and Edm. They do have some designers only carried in one city or the other. Good luck!
