"Whoever said money can't buy happiness simply didn't know where to shop." - Bo Derrick
Over the weekend, I found myself caught up in a marathon of "I Found the Dress"; TLC's newest show documenting brides saying 'yes' to the dress. The premise of the show is a bridal boutiquenamed Vows offers designer dresses sold off the rack at discounted prices. Their goal is to find every bride their dream dress with price tags as low as $600. It was impressive to watch the brides sort through the warehouse of white lace and taffeta and find their desired dress and designer within their budget. They were able to get the champagne dress on the beer belly budget.
Staying within your budget or finding your dream dress on sale can be quite a tough feat, but luckily for brides, September is the best month for sample sales, trunk shows and sidewalk sales. Below is a list of upcoming sales in Toronto and Ottawa that will definitely be worth checking out. After all, if you are getting married next summer, it is soon time to say yes to your dress.
