You can pay for rush:) Luckily they are alll in a huge warehouse and when I got mine it took 4 weeks:) No rush either. But check it thoroughly as mine was ripped and had holes in it:(( I never got it back bc it was discontinued.

I would go to that particular store or call them and ask. Since you’re in Canada you might get quoted different shipping times than we have here in the US. I just double-checked and they don’t ship internationally from their website (but you may already have known that). I bought a DB gown off the rack so I took mine with me that day.

@Nat_can:  If you go to the DB store they have plenty of sizes in stock ready to take home right then.  Although they do have some online styles that you cannot try on prior.  Would it hurt to visit the store to get a feel for what you “might” be looking into next? 

 

Say where in Banff were you thinking of a wedding?  We are thinking Emerald Lake Lodge in Field!

I bought mine at DB, got to take it home the same day. It was brand new and had just come in, she thought it was a sample that I had tried on. But they are still pretty fast in their shipping. My Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses came in a month, even though they said to give it 10 weeks.

I also bought my DB dress off the rack, and intend to have it altered elsewhere since salons always overcharge.

I was told davids bridal doesn’t do alterations itself, you have to take it somewhere else to have alterations. If you do buy it from DB I would have someone on standby to do the alterations.

I bought my DB dress off the rack so it was taken home with me the same day. I’m not sure how long their alterations take. I’m going to be having mine done elsewhere because I’ve seen some horror stories with their alterations on here.

@Nat_can:  I see see a private wedding on top of the Rockpile at Moraine Lake on a photographer’s blog.  Then the photographer turned around to show the audience that had gathered to watch.  I wouldn’t like that.  I hear if you do it later in the evening the gobs of people who aren’t staying at the logde will leave.

 

FYI: Their sizes are not regular sizes.  They put me in a 4 and I don’t any article of clothing in a 4 (they are all bigger).
