If you're not fussy about the look of their small store you can get a good price on a designer gown.
Having said that, I decided to check out David's Bridal in scarborough and was quite shocked at how low their prices are. Like I said before, I like a good deal, but I also like good quality. Some of their dresses are on the cheapy side BUT I did actually end up finding my dress there and LOVE IT! QUality is outstanding and fit is AMAZING! It's almost the same as the one I originally wanted but doesn't come with the detachable sleeves. I ended up getting my dress for $750. It fits even better than my original. My best friend was the one who finally convinced me to get it because she simply stated, "the dresses look almost identical...do you really wana pay $400 for sleeves?"
So definitely give Davids a chance. I don't suggest going on a weekend because it's a zoo. But if you can go during the week you get more attention, feel less stressed and can actually breathe. Good Luck!
Oh boy, you dont understand how great it is to hear that from you. I have an appointment on Dec1st for my first wedding gown shopping experience with my mom and the bridesmaids. We can only go on a weekend since my sister is in Guelph for school during the week. Hopefully, it won't be the zoo that you mentioned.
The dress I saw online that I really like is $350CAD. So we shall see how that goes.
