Try Blissful Bridal just off Macleod Trail.  There are some 500-800 that are perfect for a destination wedding.  My second choice was there but I bought my dress in the states.


If you can head to Great Falls, I think there is a David's Bridal there.  I got my $599 dress on sale there for $399

 

:)  Good luck!

Depending on how formal you are planning to go... the BCBG outlet store sometimes has beautiful long white dresses that are perfect for a destination wedding.

If you're willing to make the trek up to Edmonton, there's a woman who operates a wedding dress consignment business out of her basement.  It's called Urban Bride Delivered (go to www.urbanbridedelivered.com or look them up on Facebook for current pictures of dresses in stock).  I went there last night, tried on maybe 5 dresses and found a dress I love.  It hadn't been altered, nor do I need to make any significant alterations to it.  I paid for it and brought it home last night.  You might be able to find better prices on eBay or Kijiji, but I would still recommend checking out this place.

I'm from Winnipeg, which doesn't help you exactly - but for my dress it was a sample.  They had gotten the dresses in and the designer (Le Sposa) went bankrupt or something in North America. So it was a brand new sample for 50% off.  So I got a beautiful dress brand new for around $500. 

 

Most bridal places I've been (at least the bigger ones) had sample racks (at least in the spring). You might be able to find something good there.

HI luvmoo,

I am not sure if you got your dress yet but I also suggest Urban Bride, the owner is Christine and she knows her stuff. Another option, which I didn't plan on doing is buying your dress in the States at David's Bridal or if you can make a trip for some reason to Toronto, they have two stores there. We went to Vegas in March and I was just going to look and only buy if I found the dress...well three hours later, I came out with the dress and only paid 650$...satin dress, Galina, bead work. It would have costed well over 1000$ here in Canada. They had a lot of other nice dresses for under 500$. A drive to Spokane for the weekend may well be worth it!

Good luck!

What size are you?

 

I bought a dress in the states that I am now selling. BRAND NEW. I bought a different one, totally changed my mind, even though I loved the first dress it wasnt the silhouette I wanted.

PM me for details if you are interested.  It still has the tags on it and has not been altered.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
