      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!
