When's the big day?

 

When I was there, there was a section on the side back wall of dresses you could buy off the rack. I tried a few on. Not sure they could alter it unless you have an appt already as they book months in advance.

Big day is December 23- eeek

 

I will have a look and see what's there. Thanks

@@Sara1603 Also, I forgot to sort of advertise where I got my dress haha. They have really beautiful ones and the prices are really good. I got a sample dress there and they had it cleaned and ready for me within about 2 weeks. That's without alterations, but I know they have their own alterations department there so it doesn't hurt to ask whether they could do a rush order. It's called Blissful Bridal and I highly recommend them.

Thanks for your input :)

Is Blissful Bridal by Chinook?

I almost bought a hair piece at blissful bridal. They had some Beautiful dresses and the few I snuck a peek at weren't expensive either. There is also another bridal store by the spence diamonds across from chinook.

For those who already shopped for bridesmaid dresses, where did you find the best prices? I'm helping out my maids of honor with $150 and they can either shop within that price or pay the difference since they get to choose their own dress. Is that realistic?

The only bridal store I went to for the ladies was David's Bridal. I had looked online and knew their prices were reasonable. I looked at short styles only but they were all around $160 - although they do have sales! So that fits totally into your budget for them.

 

I searched hi and low for a cheaper option - internet, department stores, prom type stores (Oksana's) and the like and while I could sometimes find something cheaper it just didn't excite me - whether quality be cheaper or too much bling, etc. Sometimes I would find the perfect dress but not in my color, ugh! Was frustrating so just decided to help them out some with the cost and get something that would look great and work for everyone :)

 

Good luck.

I like the dresses i've seen on David's bridal, on the website, but then we stopped by with the fiance the other day and I only liked one dress that they had there. I think it's the same one as the one for your bridesmaids haha. My color is so hard to find! I've looked online as well but I don't know if I want to risk buying something that no one has been able to try on.

There are some online stores that have great options but most are in China, etc. I'm also a little weary of purchasing online no matter where the store is, just in case. So I feel you there. David's had about 4-5 I really liked :)

Did they have a color close to yours?

Another thought -- have you been into Oksana's in Sunridge Mall? There is a wide selection there. I know they can order in some colors depending on brand and also provide a discount of 10% when you order 3 or more.

Oh I had never heard of them! Will need to make a trip there for sure since I will be paying for my girls' dresses... Whatever savings I can get the better! Was hoping to keep under $150 each.

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
