Oh I'm so glad! I'm addicted to Vistaprint and it's not good that I still have so much more time to go before our wedding. I just order things and figure if I don't like it I can just reorder something different. Happy hunting!

Thanks for that site. They have some really good stuff there. I don't know about you but I'm not having a whole lot of people coming so I don't need such huge quantities either. Also with our dollar going down buying online just doesn't seem to be the bargain it used to be. Let's try to keep each other updated if we find some good bags for a decent price.

So far I'm leaning towards the two-tone boat bag #SB-61...it's $3 USD / bag but it's pretty nice. I think it includes a one-colour imprint. I'm going to call and find out...

There is an amazing website that i found that offers, personalized margarita packets, parasols, straw hand fans, sand cermony kits,personalized stickers and tags, just married sandals and so many more favors and everything you can dream of! They are called Wedding Favours Canada-Wedding Party Gifts-Bridal Shower Gifts-Weddingfavours.ca and they are a distributor of Weddingstar - Wedding Accessories - Cake Toppers - Unique Wedding Favors so if you find anything on the wedding star site they can get it for you at the same price. They are amazing and the shipping is SOOOOOO cheap. Ladies I cannot stress enough how AMAZING this site is!!!

Punkie...I made my first order from Vistaprint! I designed some postcards to send to my guests letting them know about our group catamaran excursion! I used one of their stock designs but customised the text...I can't wait to send them out! Such a great way to keep people in the loop and excited! And they were FREE!!!!! I also got mailing labels for future FREE so the shipping was less than $12! SWEET!!!

That's awesome! I'm sure you'll find other things that you'll want to get printed if you keep looking. I went on there only getting the return address labels and then I just kept finding new things that I thought would work. My first order I got the 25 free magnets that I put their stock palm tree picture on that say "thank you for sharing our day in paradise". After that I got hooked and haven't looked back since...LOL

Oh and I had a good shopping day at Dollarama. Found some tote bags that are bigger than any I've seen (maybe 24"x15")and only paid $1 for each. They aren't the best quality, a little thin, but for a buck I didn't expect the best anyway. After talking to my mom we decided that most will only use the bag during the vacation so I wasn't going to spend big bucks on something that was just going into a closet when they got home. They had yellow, green, red, navy blue and black at my store in case you wanted to know. I'm just glad I can cross those off my list smile29.gif

I gotta get me to a nearby Dollarama! I'd better google it. I think I will try and get the actual bags locally and not worry too much about the quality since I'm spending a fortune on the contents instead. Everyone will probably be brining one of their own to match their swimsuit anyway!

Is anyone else having trouble getting onto the Oriental Trading site? I know a lot of the Canadian DB buy from here, but I can't seem to access it... am I the only one? sad.gif

    • Congratulations to Wedding Planners and Families of Bride and Groom. Cheapfaremart, an Orlando based Online Travel Agency offers Cheap Group Flights for Wedding Group also.
    • Thanks! I would love to get quotes from a TA but as I said I have a hard time finding a specialized one in Canada. I hope someone can point me to the right direction. 
    • The use of TA is instrumental in booking a destination wedding for several reasons: Namely, TAs have special rates and promos they can offer you, including perks of complimentary rooms and upgrades. Wright Travel actually has a Bride & Groom Fly Free Promo, which gives couples up to $1,000 cash back. These are perks you can take advantage of by working with a TA. Also, most agencies also do not charge any service fee, so you are essentially having the expertise and convenience of a travel agent without paying a dime. Experienced agents will also have valuable insight into the best property to host your wedding, and if they are familiar with your resort, they can also offer you and your guests tips on how to make your stay even better. Good TAs will also have close connections wiht the wedding department, essentially benefiting you throughout the planning process. Securing a room block is also important to ensure your resort does not run out of rooms and also to secure a group rate. Lastly, having a travel agent handle you and your guests travel plans is vital so that you don't have to deal with it. Anything can happen when it comes to travel and if you don't have an agent, your guests will turn to you for help. As a former destination wedding bride, I did not work with a TA and I regretted it. Having to answer a million questions from guests on where to stay, where to book, where to go, drove me nuts. When it comes down to the final stretch of the wedding, it was the last thing I wanted to do when I already had a million things on my plate wedding wise.  Here's a more in depth article regarding the benefits of using a TA.  https://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/wedding-tips/c/planning/10-reasons-why-you-should-use-wright-travel-agency-for-your-destination-wedding-r2439/  
    • We actually did our legal wedding at home -- a quick and easy ceremony at the local courthouse about a week before our destination wedding. Afterwards, we just went to lunch and shared a few celebratory cocktails 😊We did this so we didn't have to deal with the legal requirements (arriving early, blood test, etc.) you must abide by in Mexico. For us it worked out perfectly and our ceremony in Mexico was our official wedding with all our family and friends. 
    • Hi there, So I read a lot of you recommended to go through a TA rather than booking things yourself so I tried to reach out but haven't really been successful. I wrote to Wright Travel not realizing that they were only serving the US. So all I really need is actually the booking of the hotel and the wedding arrangements. Most of our guests will stay at that hotel but I know some of them will probably look for other options. Our guests will arrange their own flights as they are coming from different countries (Canada and Europe) and I don't see group flights coming together as they will all stay different length of time. So my questions are, why exactly would I need a travel agency to book the hotel and the wedding? I worked in event management for years and have organised events way bigger than that and could probably organise it myself. If we decide to go with a TA, does anyone have any recommendation for a Canadian TA? Thanks all!
