Blissful Bridal has beautiful dresses and the one i snook a peak at was $800!! I went there for hair accessories.

I also went to Ever After. They have some under $1000 as well and are not pushy whatsoever. My BM got her dress there for her wedding as did her sister and sister in law. Just another idea.

@yycbride2016  Just curious - is that Sophia Tolli a label size 10 or a street size 10? Because they fit a lot smaller than regular sizes. I would look at the measurements and see what is listed, then keep in mind you can quite easily take it down about 2 sizes. I know the ladies have mentioned places for alterations in Calgary that are reasonably priced. Still might be something to keep as a side plan.

  @yycbride2016 - I was going to say the same thing @acw271011 just said! The wedding dress I ordered is actually 4 sizes larger than my normal dress size. I'll definitely have to have it altered, but it's apparently really easy/common to have it altered up to 2 sizes down.

@acw271011 @Danielle1

Good thinking. I found the exaxt measurements online for the sophia tolli dresses and I'm going to measure myself to see how much of a difference a size 10 is to what I am. I know that the dress is part of the clearance sale but I just don't know how much it's on sale for. Its a $2000 dress so it would have to be a big sale for me to purchase it.

 

@calgarybride2015

I'm definately going to check out Blissful Bridal if Sunday doesn't go well. I've always wanted to go in there so now I have a good excuse haha. Especially if the prices are good!

Yeah! It's the one right next to cactus club. I don't know of open sesame is there too.

I'm usually a size 2 but my dress is a size 4. Technically I probably should have had a size 6 and have it taken in in certain parts but it was the last one left.

@TinkerSofi Yeah thats fair enough. I did my measurements last night and matched them up to the Sophia Tolli dress size chart and Looks like i'd be around a 4-6 so the size 10 might not be completely out of my reach. I still have hopes that I can find a sample dress in my size with lots of sparkle haha.

 

@acw271011 Thanks for the heads up I took a look at their facebook page and there are some really pretty ones on there. I'm so happy yours is finally up and ready to buy! So exciting!!!


Help! Please vote on which shoes you think I should go with based on the style of those dresses i've been looking at (sweetheart neckline, fitted a-line, sparkle):
