- Wedding: September 2011
I’m super happy about this, so I need to share…
Backstory: I have three bridesmaids in different parts of the country- one in Ontario, one in Edmonton, and one in Calgary, so anywhere from a three hour drive to a five hour plane ride apart. I was afraid that shopping for matching bridesmaids dresses would be a nightmare, so I gave the girls two criteria- navy and cocktail length. I was kind of hoping for a cool mismatched look, but was terrified that it wouldn’t work out…So one of my bridesmaids calls me and says she found a dress and bought it at a national fashion retailer here in Canada. She sends me a picture and its exactly what I had in mind… not only that, but its very similar to what another bridesmaid was trying on for $300 at a bridal shop here. I ask her if she minds me showing it to the other bridesmaids, and like the gem she is, she said no problem.I show it to the other two girls, and they both agree that its perfect. So I call locations of this store close to them and have the dress put on hold. They’ve gone, tried them on, purchased them, and now my geographically diverse bridal party will have matching dresses, and different colored shoes, which was pretty much my dream scenario!Best part- the dress, besides being super cute, was regular $88, on sale… FOR HALF PRICE! I consider this a MAJOR win!
