Northern Safety If you have someone in the US you could ship to first then it might be even better. I hadn't been able to find a vendor for these located in Canada though either.

    Another option depending on how many guests you have is just to buy a large sized bottle of the items you want, leave them sealed just to cover your butt in customs, and then separate them into little pre-labelled ziplocks once you get down there (kind of a last minute pain but it might be a lot cheaper!!). If we didn't need so many for our guests, this is likely the option I would have chosen.

      website is Treasured Moments Flowers & Gifts - Home

      I should be getting pictures while they are getting made so I'll share as soon as I get them.

      Also, I found a Canadian retailer that sells badge holders with a ziploc seal for 0.43 cents each! They only sell a minimum of 100 and I only need 50. Does anyone want to split an order? (ID Card Printers, Plastic ID Cards, PVC Printer Supplies & Identification Accessories Canada)

      Thanks,
      Heather
      Thanks! I'll look into her. It just worries me a little to order without seeing a sample. I am sure all 'real touch' are not created equal...the sample I got from the ebay seller was really 'foam' feeling. I didn't like it at all. Does anyone know what real touch flowers are supposed to feel like? ...Maybe they are supposed to feel like foam??

          (also, police got a tip and located my friend's daughter, she is home safe & sound! :) )
          I am using a flower company called enchanting memories. They have a website and are located in Hamilton, Ont. They have great pricing and thus far are very easy to work with.. I just phoned and sent them pics of what I like, colours, etc. I actually got their name from another BDW member.

          Glad to hear about your friend's daughter.

            Sorry I forgot to add prices... $7/bouts, $10/corsages and around $80 for my bouquet I think... wasn't more than that, just can't remember now.. Also, I didn't order BM bouquets as I bought them from here.

              I would be interested in the ID badge holders also, though I would only 12. Let me know and we can work something out!

                I actually had Jenn from Treasured Moments send me a sample because i wasn't sure. She sent me a white calla lilly and everyone who saw it thought it was real. It felt rubbery and could be crushed and just popped back into place. The only thing I wasn't thrilled about was the stem - it was really plastic looking but then I figured you add in filler and wrap it in ribbon and no one see's it anyways...

                Hope this helps.

                  Thanks for that...I have actually been in touch with her. Have you gotten your boquet yet? Or know someone who has?

                  I am just nervous to order the boquet without seeing it in person. The 'real touch' flower I ordered on ebay looked really nice in the photo, but apparently wasn't as nice as real 'real touch' flowers. There was no question that it was fake.

                    I havent used them, but i have read quite a few reviews of brides that are very happy with Enchanted Memories. If you search them on the forum there is probably a few posts. Also the Facebook group has a few comments as well. I think shes definitely a great choice!
