r o c o c o Brides
8989 Macleod Trail Southwest #4

r o c o c o Brides came to be after many years of planning, with a strong belief that that when it comes to bridal shopping, it should be a unique and memorable experience.  They want your appointment at their shop to feel like no other day and look like no other bridal boutique you have ever stepped into.  r o c o c o Brides was designed and created with lux, opulence and comfort for all in mind, with a shop where every bride is welcome.  At r o c o c o you will experience a mid 17th- 18th century “Versailles-feel” with a touch modern-whimsy, meant to capture an age where there was passion for love and seduction – a time period in history in which a movement of change in fashion and art took place.  r o c o c o is always scouting for designers that deliver only the best in design, structure, delivery and fabric (and they have designers that are exclusive to their boutique!).

Everthine Bridal Consignment
1111 3rd Street Southeast #2

Unlike most start-up stories, Everthine Boutique did not come to be while planning a wedding but instead as a passion project between two besties wanting to create something meaningful and special of their own.  The founders believed Calgary brides deserved something that broke the traditional shopping experience, offering personalized one on one appointments regardless of a bride’s budget, and working continuously to provide a curated inventory for brides of all shapes and size.  The Boutique is all consignment, so these once-loved gowns can find a new home with the right bride!

Cameo & Cufflinks
1324 11th Avenue Southwest

Located in the heart of Calgarys’ Beltline, Cameo & Cufflink’s philosophy is simple: to offer modern and stylish wedding gowns to brides sized 4 – 26 within the price point of $1500 – $4000. Many of their designers are exclusive to the store in Southern Alberta. From minimalistic, modern, glam, boho and just that right amount of edge – they have gowns for every bride!  We love that size inclusivity is especially important to Cameo & Cufflinks, and they make point of bringing in as many styles in multiple sizes so that all brides of all body types feel comfortable in the dresses they are wearing.

Lavish Bridal Couture
4310 104 Avenue Northeast, Unit #3134

Lavish Bridal Couture is owned and run by a father-daughter duo. It began with an idea that Alberta’s South Asian fashion shopping experience needed a serious makeover, especially in bridal wear.   They wanted to create a space for fun, unstressful, and uncomplicated shopping for brides looking for modern & traditional South Asian bridal wear.   Lavish Bridal Couture now not only specializes in bridal & evening wear, but also in pre-event and non-bridal outfits – so brides can find outfits for every event. “Lavish” is synonymous with luxury, sumptuously rich, and opulent – and the store was inspired by rich Indian traditional heritage, showcasing Indian aesthetic with a modern touch.  Modern or traditional, heavily worked or elegantly embellished, haute couture or ready to wear prêt: everything designed in their studios is timeless and beautiful.
