Edmonton shops ideal for bridesmaid dresses

Being a bridesmaid is the best and the worst of times – it’s a fun honour but it can be nightmare picking out a dress that doesn’t make you look like a marshmallow peep. These Edmonton stores offer bridesmaid gowns that will make you look and feel like a princess without breaking the bank.

Bridal Début

156-134 Pembina Rd, Sherwood Park, AB T8H 0M2

There are some gorgeous bridemaid dresses here that can actually be worn after the wedding (everyone says that but it is rarely true). They carry great brands, such as After Six, Alfred Sung and the Dessy Group, all of which offer gowns in a variety of styles and colours. What’s really great about these dresses is that usually the same dress will come with multiple necklines, so that bridesmaids can choose if they want a halter, strapless, spaghetti strap or one-shoulder dress.

The Bridal & Tuxedo House

13059 156th Street NW, Edmonton, AB T5V 0A2

There is an actual bridesmaid loft here for your ladies in waiting to try on dresses in peace while popping some champsies and having actual fun. You can book an appointment for the loft and try on a multitude of gowns, from collections such as Allure, Venus Bella Bridesmaids and Jasmine Bridal. Whether you go regally long or for short and cute, you’ll be able to pick your dress out while avoiding the chaos.

Pure Bridal Inc

Imagine a boutique filled with a rainbow of bridesmaid dresses that you actually want to wear in front of 200 people. Yes, it can happen. While a beautiful, elegant bridesmaids dress can seem like an elusive unicorn, when you have a big selection, it does seem within reach. Pure Bridal carries nine different brands of bridesmaid gowns to make your search for that needle in the haystack a little easier. And, their price range is wide enough for any gal – $185 to $800.

Ethos Bridal Group

170 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5T 4M2

This cozy shop at West Edmonton Mall is where I found my bridesmaid dress for my sister’s wedding (and by found, I mean she found it and told me to wear it). They order in dresses in your size instead of making you take one off the rack and desperately trying to make it fit. And their selection of styles and colours is awesome. While I did end up looking like a pink marshmallow, that was exactly what my sister wanted (and the bride is always right).

When this adorable bridal boutique moved into a bigger space in 2013, it gave them a chance to start carrying some bridesmaid dresses, along with their array of wedding gowns. While the selection is minimal – four brands –they are classy dresses that you will never look like a cupcake or meringue in when you walk down the aisle for your friend.

Kombucha tea, a slightly bubbly fermented drink made with a green or black tea base, is a sweet but healthy alternative to pop. Makers claim it can aid in digestive health, plus it just tastes fantastic. Often made from organic, raw ingredients, kombucha teas have exploded in popularity in the past decade. These Edmonton shops carry a variety of brands, including some Canuck favourites.
