    Great info, thank you for that. I am sure lots of Canadian Brides are thanking you right now.

    I just left mine outside during the day one day to air them out and they did not smell anymore. So try that.

      Did any of you guys find anywhere after to order starfish that wouldn't break your bank when it arrived from all the shipping and duty charges? (like CourtneyV who I see got dinged with $50 extra bucks for duty!!!)

        I'm not sure what kind of starfish you are looking for? Fake or Real? If fake, Michaels definately has some. As for buying from US companies, you can avoid getting charged crazy duty/brokerage fees if you ensure that they use USPS. They don't charge crazy fees and there are no suprises when your package arrives. UPS is the shipping company that charges crazy extras like for instance a fee to fill out custom forms...I know someone who bought a $3 product and she paid $30 in fees to UPS. I refuse to purchase anything shipped through UPS.

          I must admit I did not read the entire thread so these might be duplicates but here are a couple of sites I have dealt with and will be. They all have reasonable shipping fees, some ship from Canada and none use UPS.

          I got my starfish bouquet jewel from them- they ship from Alberta

          Dream-Maker Wedding Consultants

          I will be ordering alot of stuff from them (cake topper, favours, garter...) for one flat shipping fee of $15. There is an awesome sand ceremony kit I may consider.

          Hudson's Bay Company (HBC): Browse through our distinctive line of wedding accessories.

          I will be ordering some favours, bm gifts)

          Wedding Favours - Bridal Shower Favours and Party Favour Ideas

          On another note, I ran into pink and orange sand for the sand ceremony by complete accident at Loeblaws here in Toronto. It was a great find considering I was having a hard time finding those colours without having crazy shipping fees.

          I hope this helps future DW Canadian brides :)

                      They do not smell anymore :) I layed them out in my basement for about a month... no more odor :)
