    Hope everyone's enjoying this fine winter weather we're having! It's days like these that make me wish we had planned our wedding for January!

        Nadine, I'm so sorry to hear that you didn't have a good experience with Evalina. It's so funny, because I found her to be so sweet, and I actually missed her after my wedding was over! One of my girlfriends got her dress from Evalina too, and she also loved her. Maybe she was having an off day with you or something? She told me once how every bride she's ever worked with has ended up losing weight before their wedding, just from stress, etc., even when they insisted that there was no way they would be losing any weight before the wedding. I wonder if she was meaning something like that with you, but it just came out wrong?

        I don't know about the putting down $150 just to try on dresses... I didn't have to do that when I was looking. It must be a new thing. That sounds very weird - I'm not sure I would have been alright with that!!

        At any rate, I'm so sorry to hear about your experience. It is such a personal thing, that whole dress shopping experience. I had so many friends who loved the Bridal Centre and Ethos and I was so frustrated with both places, and felt like Evalina was the only one who got me and what I wanted. It really does so depend on the person and how they click with the salesperson, I think. I'm glad you found the right dress for you though!

Totally turned me off.

          Totally true, and i do think most likely she had an off day b/c the day I bought my dress at her big sale she was very sweet and nice. But if it weren't for that sale I wouldn't have went back again b/c of the first visit. Either way its done and I did get my dress, which is the most important part.

          KRama- Tell me about it! With the snow fall this past weekend all we keep saying is THREE MORE WEEKS and we are in sunny mexico!! WOOT!

            Nadine,

            Do you have anything else left to do? You must be pumped! When do you leave?

              I leave on Christmas Eve :) I have my second fitting on the 14th so I hope its done. I am thinking about adding straps to my dress though. I am waiting for my pashminas, brochures and another dress to arrive in the mail any day now. And still have to make my tags for the pashminas and OOT bags. Oh and this weekend Im getting my extensions cut and colored so they are ready to go!

                Does anybody have a recommendation on shops to get bridesmaid dresses in Calgary?

                    I just had a look at the Frocks website, and man, do they ever have cute dresses!! I wish I'd known about that place when we were looking for my BM dresses. I was happy with the dresses we ended up finding, but I kept wishing for a place with really cute BM dresses like these!
