    Great thread! I'll go!

    1. Registry: Sears.ca

    2. OOT bags: I think we'll just be doing travel mugs, and unfortunately don't think we'll be able to use 4imprint.ca as their minimum order amounts are much higher than the number of guests we'll have. I think we'll be using discountmugs.com.

    3. Wedding Attire: Dress - Becker's Bridal (sister store to The Dressing Room) on The Danforth in Toronto.
    Groom's Attire - Moores

    4. Rings: Ering - Peoples
    Wedding Bands - Ben Moss

    5. Invitations: My inviations were actually from Target. They were shipped to may Aunt in the US who brought them up with her when she came for a visit, thereby saving me the duty and they were a gift from my parents.
    I had DIY STD's purchaed from Walmart. Other stationary was purchased from Grand & Toy and Michaels.

    6. Flowers: Lori's Hearts N Flowers - Oshawa

    7. Decor: Michaels and the resort

    8. Travel Arrangements: Weddings By Oceans

    9. Are you active on any other Canadian Forums? (if yes which ones): Wedding Bells and Canadian Bride

    10. Other: I ordered my ring pillow and cake topper from Wedding Favours Canada-Wedding Party Gifts-Bridal Shower Gifts-Weddingfavours.ca. They are based in London, Ontario and all prices are in Canadian dollars.
    bridesmaid jewelery from Etsy.com.

    I tried to purchase as much stuff in Canada that I could. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a lot of options.

    There are still a few things left to do, so I'm hoping that I can purchase the rest here.

      Fantastic thread idea. And it's nice having all Canadian brides here to say HELLO to. Eh?

      1. Registry: We registered at Sears but we're going to re-register at Home Outfitters that just opened up here in Burlington. They have much more selection for what we're looking for.

      2. OOT bags: Dollarama!

      3. Wedding Attire: I got my dress from Saratina Bridal in Oakville. The girls there are young and modern and they were nice to work with.

      4. Rings: Bluenile.ca

      5. Invitations: I just made a brochure type thing for ours and had them printed at staples. For our at home reception I got a steal of a deal on invites from Staples. $19.97 for 80!! Just have to print them ourselves.

      6. Flowers: So far, I have bought my niece a pomander off of ETSY.

      7. Decor: Not there yet

      8. Travel Arrangements: The Wedding Holiday in Oakville. I enjoy having tea while looking at resorts. ;-)

      9. Are you active on any other Canadian Forums? (if yes which ones): Nope. I'm addicted to this site so I don't have time for another. lol.

      10. Other: I've bought several things on ETSY and plan to buy more on there. I found my shoes (yet to buy), had my veil custom made, and bought the pomander so far. I also found a couple girls that I want to buy the boutonnieres from only I want to pick my flowers first.

              I just founds 2 Canadian sites for anyone who might be doing tees etc.

              Zazzle | Custom T-Shirts, Personalized Gifts, Posters, Art, and more


              I haven't ordered anything from, so I can't tell you what they are like, but for those that are interested in Canadian sites/companies, et.c, they might be worth checking out.

              I'm still debating whether I will order anything from them.
