@PennyLainne: Hi! I just went through the whole Edmonton dress things. didn’t end up buying from here because the reviews on pretty much all of them were terrible, I bought from Heavenly bridal in Calgary. But here is what I found on my journey:
ABC Bridal- Great selection, good prices, but reviews say they are not very good when ordering and sizing. They were very disorganized when I went in, but the lady that helped me was great. I wnet over my aplt time by almost an hour, they were fine aout it, but I booked a weekday evening to go.
Tifany’s Bridal/Bridal Plus- Great selection, very helpful staff, but again, terrible reviews when it comes to ordering and fulfillment
Wedding World- AVOID I left them numerous messages to book appointments. No reply. Emails, no reply. Now they are only open by appointment only. Horrible reviews everyhwere online, for everyhting.
Pure Bridal- More high end, nothing under $1500 when I was there, nor anything sized over 14. Nice gowns, very nice salon, great staff, but didn’t work for me. And they are no longer downtown, but north of west ed mall off 170th
Lustre- not much selection, helpful staff. new shop so no reviews.
Ethos- Chaos. I didn’t trust a lot of the gowns were authentic, all the tags are removed, which isn’t a positive prospect, and they won’t tell you who the designer is until you buy. Decent selection though.
Career Girl- Seriously chaotic. They have tons of gowns though to choose from and a large budget selection also. Not the best plus size selection though. Not sure about reviews
Crystal’s Bridal- Decent shop, some of the less common designers which was nice, good selection, again, not a lot of oversize gowns though. Decent price points, nice salon, ok staff.
Style America- West Ed Mall Busy place, decent selection.
I went with the Calgary shop because they had good reviews online, and had the gown I was looking for ina size I could try. I’m not a visualizer!
Hope that helps, I know there were ac ouple other salons I went to but can;t remember which ones…
