I went dress shopping this past weekend and wanted to share my reviews for the Calgary ladies. I found my dress too
Store 1: The Bridal Centre. I booked the Princess Room and had fantastic service. I think I must have tried on numerous dresses, several of them twice. Found one that I liked and went back later in the day and asked to try it again. They had no problem with it. My BM's tried on some dresses as well and that was fun.
Store 2: Ethos. Not so impressed. I did find one I liked though. The lady that helped me wouldn't let me try anything on that wasn't in my size. Very frustrating since I probably won't buy off-the-rack. There were a number of beautiful gowns that she wouldn't let me try since they were too big.
Store 3: Beautiful Bride. Love love love the store. They were super helpful. They explained the set up of the store, gave me some clothes pins (as well as some to my BM's and mom) and said to pick what I want to try and they'll bring them when I'm ready. It was awesome. the entire area near the dressing rooms is all mirrors
I found the dress I think will be mine here. I do have to go and try the two I really liked again just to make sure.
