Calgary bridal expo!

Our booth is set to go for tomorrow's (September 27th) bridal expo at the Roudup Centre, Stampede Park, Calgary. It's the biggest fall bridal show in Calgary and is on from 10 - 5pm. We're thrilled to be a part of it for our first time this year and would love for you to drop by our booth to say hi!

We have typically shied away from big bridal shows like this in favour of more intimate boutique-style shows, but have decided to just see how it goes. If you've got any thoughts on these types of shows, we'd love to hear them.

If you have any comments or suggestions on our booth and presentation at this year's show, please let us know by email at

ladies in red

Emily wed her beau, Sander Duncanson in Calgary at The Ranche in Fish Creek Park on August 22, 2009. The day was captured by Corrina Walker Photography.

This wedding is proof that, even when surrounded by 6 STUNNING ladies, a bride can still stand out and, dare we say, steal the show! The key is choosing a colour that makes you pop. Whether it's navy, chocolate brown, pink, teal or red, a white wedding dress never looks more beautiful than when it's placed between vibrant bridesmaids dresses (and, of course, worn by a gorgeous bride!)

Emily and her girls look fabulous and timeless thanks to the great colour and styles chosen by this stylish bride and her amazing group of bridesmaids. Emily let her girls choose their own styles from Jenny Yoo's Silk Shantung collection in poppy red. They were a pleasure to work with and the look came together beautifully. We can't take all the credit though, look at these girls!?

Partying in platinum

We just had to post these pics we received from one of our Calgary brides, Kristina. She had a vision for her wedding from the get go and pulled it off beautifully on August 15th of this year when she married her beau, Ryan.

Her girls look stunning in Jenny Yoo 'Rachel' frocks!

Beyond pouf and bling

Too many choices can be a bad thing, but not when it comes to wedding dresses.

Jenny Yoo's wedding alternatives offer an alternative to traditional bridal gowns. Beach weddings, small, intimate ceremonies, second weddings or back yard weddings can be overwhelmed by poufy, blingy gowns.

The key to choosing a simple, classic gown is ensuring you don't go. . .well. . . plain. Pay attention to the fabric and styling and choose a silhouette that you can accessorize to make it truly your own. Cage veils, fabulous jewels or flashy shoes are great additions to a classic wedding frock.

Planning a big, traditional wedding? These dresses have also been popular with our brides planning big weddings as well. Nothing beats a classic, timeless style that will look just as great on your 25th wedding anniversary as it does now!

How Sweet it is!

September may be here, but we're not saying goodbye to the sweet days of summer quite yet.

With the help of our friends at Candy Aisle in Steveston Village, our Jenny Yoo dress window is accented with a delicious and decorative candy buffet. We've only had the window up for one day and it's received quite a response from drooling kids and brides alike!

Whether you're planning a bridal or baby shower, wedding or stagette, a candy buffet is a modern addition to your cake or dessert table. Have you ever met someone who didn't like candy?! With their incredible selection of unique candies and flair for style, Nicole and Celia at Candy Aisle can put together a candy buffet that accents the colours of your wedding style. They even recently helped someone out with blue and green candies for a Seahawks themed soiree!

The beautiful bouquet is from our talented neighbour, Sam, at Buy the Bunch. You can't beat Sam's talents for your bridal flowers.

See, we don't just know dresses!
