      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.
