      Not yet... I have sent two messages again with no luck... I get the communication problems but come on, a library or coffee shop/cafe would provide computer access. Now I am starting to worry a bit again...

          I bought some off another BDW bride, but my problem is I paid for them over a month ago, have yet to receive them and have had limited contact with this person so it is starting to wear on me a bit. I am trying to find somewhat of a local florist (at least in Ont or Can.) but seem to keep getting good recommendations for US companies...
          Have you looked into any florists here?

            I only very superficially browsed around when I was planning a local wedding. One place that seems to stick in my head was a guy in Dundas Square in the building with the Jack Astors' and Milestones; he does $500 down and will work a design out for your entire wedding and then the $500 is applied to the cost of flowers (or you can just steal his ideas for $500). They seemed nice and creative enough from the store, but I am not sure if he does real touch flowers. I can try calling him tomorrow if I can dig up his card.

              Ebredhawk, BEAUTIFUL bouquet!!!! You're very lucky that your Mom knows how to arrange flowers. I would love to try to make my own, but I'm sure it's not easy! How are you transporting them down to PC safely?

              Also, would you mind sending me the wording through e-mail? For some reason I can't open it... taratoons@hotmail.com Thanks. :0)

              Has anyone used Michaels for their bouquets? I'm just wondering about costs through them...

              What are you ladies doing for guest books? I want to do a photobook, but I can't find an affordable one that I like, plus it would be $150 to do the engagement session with my photographer... I've read some creative ideas for guestbooks, just wondering what you guys have decided to do?

                I hope that I will be able to find some real-touch in Florida (where I'm moving) so that maybe I won't have to pay shipping cost! I am using the real bouquet that comes with the package for me (since mine will be pretty basic) and I hope to get real-touch for the bridesmaids. I would be interested to hear about real-touch vendors in Canada, because if their prices are better my parents would order them for me!

                  tara.. should be on its way! i've also heard that michaels does a great job with bouquets, so that's a good place to try.

                  for my guestbook i actually bought a map of the dominican republic that we're going to have all of our guests sign. there aren't enough people to justify a photo book! i may also do the whiteboard thing, but i haven't quite decided. i think that may be more of an AHR thing.

                    We have the Polaroid guest book thing for ours. =) I have a website that I will get our real touch flowers (they do excellent work), but I don't have it saved at work. I will post it when I get home tonight.
