Grad dress

I hate to admit it, but it's been over 20 years since I shopped for a grad dress...:) When I did shop I didn't really know where to shop and even had a hard time finding a dress. It's hard to believe my eldest is graduating and even though that's all her and her friends have been talking about, it really didn't sink in until we started shopping for her grad dress a few weeks ago. I wasn't sure why we were shopping so early since her grad isn't until May of next year...but after shopping and realizing it is going to take until March for her dress to come in, I am glad we did.

How different times are now, because I could have looked at a dozen magazines and had no idea what kind of dress I wanted nor where to look for them. My daughter knew exactly where she wanted to look for her grad dress and not only what styles she wanted to try on but the designers that she liked.

We started out in New Westminster where there are quite a number of shops. The only one I would recommend is the "Bridal Gallery" they have a very good selection and will be getting a lot more in over the next few months in preparation for grads next year. They were helpful and had a variety, from bridal to bridesmainds to grad dresses - short and long, formal and semi-formal.

Then last week we went to a shop here in Surrey, "Ruby's Bridal shop" on 160th Street and Fraser Highway she found her dress. At this point after previously trying on a number of dresses, she knew exactly what she wanted. The service we received by the staff at "Ruby's Bridal Shop" was top notch and they understood what it was that she wanted. They listened and even brought her a dress that wasn't even on the racks yet, then took the time to pin it on to show her how she will look in one her size. We didn't get that kind of service in any of the previous shops she had tried dresses on. They made my daughter feel comfortable and she walked out appreciating the service she received as well.
