Hi Everyone! I’m heading to Vancouver at the beginning of July to visit my sister and Maid/Matron of Honor and I’m in need of recommendations of where we can look for her dress. I’m not so interested in bridal stores, but rather in interesting (not chains) clothing stores. Let me know if there’s a place I shouldn’t miss. Thanks!

@knitting: I personally didn’t do a lot of shopping around for Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, but I ended up getting the dresses from Ric Yuenn who customized the dresses for us. He can get pricey but if you check out his (tiny) shop in Gastown, sometimes he puts things up for sale. We also went to Frocks in Kitsilano and they had a nice variety of dresses (http://www.frocks.ca/). Hope that helps!

So far I have gotten one bridesmaid dress from The Bay (they have a pretty good dress section on the upper floor) and i got one dress from Macy’s. My bridesmaids aren’t matching, so i am having fun piecing the look together from wherever i find a suitable dress.
My FI’s best man is a actually a girl (best grooms-woman i think we have named her) and i got her dress, which matches in style to the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses from RW & Co.
Frocks is nice, but pretty pricey.
Depends how casual you are willing to go, but Plum and Le Chateau might have some dresses
