    I cant remember what its called exactly... Pashmina something. Helpful, I know lol. The name definitely starts with "Pashmina" though. I pass it on the CTrain every day while I'm on the way to work, so if you haven't gone over the weekend I'll take a look again for the exact name on Monday :)

    But in case you go searching for it before then, its on the south side of 7 Ave, and I think off the corner of 1 St SW.

    If you do go, please let me know what their prices and quality are like! I'll be buying a bunch once I know how many women I need to be buying for and would prefer to do it locally as well :)

      Nadine, what do you think of Dreams Cancun? I'm still searching for our resort and Dreams Tulum and Dreams Riviera Cancun are on our list, but I hadn't taken a look at Dreams Cancun yet. I'm just in love with the dreams resorts haha!

        lol isn't that hilarious, I stare at that store as I pass it every day too and still dont know its exact name! I think I'm too busy trying to see whats inside the store to notice the sign above it

            It's called Pashmina Group. The address is 129 7th Avenue SW between Centre & 1st Street on the south side (but a bit closer to Centre street I think). I had to think for a minute because while I haven't seen the store, I knew the Bay was on the sw corner at that intersection! My office is just a block away from there.
            I tried to check it out on google street view but of course the camera car didn't go down 7th avenue so you can't quite make the viewer zoom down from the intersection far enough. Hope that helps!!

            Also, I was married at Dreams Puerto Aventuras and it was a really nice resort! All our guests really appreciated it and even though you're not immediately in either of the main towns, we found it was super easy to get absolutely anywhere! Plus most of the excursion places were close by which I know people appreciated, and if you're thinking of catamaran trips then you can arrange them and leave right from the marina.

                Echo - not sure if you saw my question above about the name of your alteration person? All I really need is a bustle so I dont' really want it done at the bridal centre.

                Thanks!

                  Oh sorry I didn't see your question! I went to Connie's alterations for my dress. Her shop is on the upper floor in a small building on the south west corner of 14th Street & 2nd Avenue NW. There aren't any signs on the front of the building but there is chinese massage place on the upper floor and David Chung Photography is on the main level. (Google Map for Connie's Alterations) and look at the street view to see the place.

                  You can park just behind the building off 2nd ave and there is a door on that same side of the building. Go up the stairs and she's the first door on your right. The only part I found frustrating was her hours only go until 4 or 4:30pm during the week and 9-12 on Saturday. BUT she did a really great job and had very reasonable prices for sure so I was a happy customer. I also have a number of friends who have gone to her for their alterations and everyone I know has been happy.

                    I am very excited for Dreams Cancun, the resort is beautiful and right on the tip of the hotel zone so virtually surround by water on 3 side. It is super close to night life and shopping etc. The days are getting closer and closer and I can say that I do not regret my decision one bit, even with the renos they have done recently.

                    Good luck finding the perfect resort. Let me know if you have any specific questions I can answer!

                      Hey Meghan

                      Do you need to call ahead to Connie's before bringing your dress there. I'm not sure if I want to get my alterations done at C&C just b/c of the cost. Will Connie take any dress alterations or does she need to see it before?
