      Hello Everyone,

      Well it has taken me a couple of days but I have finally finished reading all these posts (good thing it has been slow at work . So much great information on here! So I'm not technically a Calgary bride (Red Deer shhh) but I did get my dress at Ethos in Calgary. FI and I are getting married at the Bahia Principe in Jamaica, February 7th, 2010. My TA is through Flight Centre and we are booked with Nolitours for the package. I still have to find bridesmaid dresses but it's already getting late in the season, so if any of you ladies have recommendations that would be great.

        boo...i say Go For It! i don't think the ladies are going to be sitting there comparing the quality of their pashminas. :)

        ashley, welcome! sounds like you are well on your way! are you looking at getting bridesmaid dresses just at a regular store instead of a bridal store? hmmm...maybe have a look at le chateau? they usually have little dresses all year - but it depends on what colour you might be looking for. something summery might be a little more challenging. good luck!

          I ordered from the Bridal centre, but did consider an online purchase.

          Echo - I also need an alteration lady. Just for a bustle so I'd love to hear your recommendation!

By now I have 20ish ladies confirmed, so I feel like 12 is too low (I thought of getting 6*3 at the time, but as we were going somewhere after I thought it would be too much to haul now I really wish that I would have thought!)

            I came across this site
            http://www.yourselegantly.com/product_info.php?products_id=3253{8}87
            Discount Pashmina Wedding Favors Gifts

            I cant even tell a difference between these two options, I am hoping to get another 6 or 8 to have 1 for each lady guest (minus kids) thoughts
            I wouldn't worry about slight differences. If all the pashminas were the same color it may be noticeable, but since you have 3 different colors I doubt anyone will notice any small differences in quality :)

                Boo, before you order anything... I'm not sure if you checked out the Pashmina store on 7th ave? I haven't been there so I have no idea what their prices or quality is like, but someone mentioned the store to me last week. Since they're local, you could compare colors and quality and maybe even just pick up the extras you need from there :)

                  There is also a store in Sunridge Mall that had a huge selection of pashminas, I cant remember what it was called but thats where I got them for my Ladies.

                      It's on 7th between Centre and 1st St, right across from the train station. It used to be an arcade. It's funny because I look at that store every single day waiting for the train and I couldn't tell you what it's called!
