  1. Thank you girls so much for the information provided previously to this company. I placed our order January 10 for 36 mugs. I uploaded artwork supplied by my daughter which she made exactly to the specifications on their website. I checked a box to say I would like to see a proof ahead of time, but never did get it. I received a confirmation of my order the same evening showing a total of $219.19 (US$) which included the charge for uploading artwork and shipping charges - no free shipping to Canada. On January 23 I arrived home to a notice from USPS saying that they had tried to deliver a package but no one was home and they would come back. I also needed to pay a $60.27 'brokerage' fee. The USPS guy came back yesterday, I paid my money, and got two big boxes. All together the mugs cost me $290 (CD$) and I actually got 40 mugs. But they are absolutely terrific! The logo is printed on both sides (as requested). They are really hard to photograph and I'm a novice at this so hopefully this works and you can all see what they look like. Again thank you all so much for all the help and advice!

    Da Conch Shack Info

    I was at a the Alexandra, a couple of resorts down the beach from Beaches in October. We rented a car one day and we drove to Da Conch Shack. I'm guessing you could take a taxi but in general we found taxi's to be fairly pricey as they charge per person, per trip. It cost us about $100 to rent a car for 24 hours (we needed a car big enough for four adults and four sets of golf clubs). Some nights it cost us $100 in taxi's to and from restaurants. We met people who had rented a small car for the week for $250 so if we went again that is what we would do.

    Iberostar Laguna Azul - site map

    Hi, our family went to this resort for Christmas and I just checked and I don't have a map, however, they do give you a map when you check in. I did find this one for you online http://debbiesreviews.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=cubageneral&action=display&thread=17857 although you have to be a member to download it.
  4. Wow! To pull off two unique ceremonies on the same day took some major organizational skills! You must have had major luggage! I love the colours of the Indian/Hindu wedding. I also loved your dress for the Catholic ceremony. It certainly looked like a great wedding week. Congratulations and good luck!
  5. Everything looks great! Love your wedding colours. Your dress is stunning and your mom did a wonderful job. Love all your DIY projects especially your invitations and your chair swags! Can't wait to see how it all turned out. Good luck!
  6. Thank you once again for all the ideas and help supplied by the ladies here. I could not have done any of this without the kind and generous advice from those who have done all this before me. Canvas bags bought from Creativebag.com $1.30 CDN each. Iron on transfers from Staples.ca. Candles from Pier One $2.00 CDN - got them after Christmas. Postcards from vistaprint.ca $30.00 CDN - 100 postcards free but have to pay to upload images and shipping. I hope this works! Again thank you all so much!

  13. A friend of mine gave out disposable camera's to a number of guests for her second wedding about five years ago. One of the camera's only contained 'clevage' shots of many of the ladies at the wedding. She laughed about it but this is the kind of thing that happens when you give guests camera's and alcohol
  14. You have worked very hard and it all looks so good! Love that you are using your grandma's earings. Your flower girl looks adorable and so do your VIE's! Can't wait to see and hear how it all turns out! Good luck!
