Totally understand!

 

Generally I will exhaust my search before I pay unreal shipping prices.

 

A couple times on this journey I sucked it up - $3 stamps $9 shipping (like really?)

$19 (flat cardboard) vases $25 shipping (even worse!)  Then the Davet Designs labels were a bit pricey for shipping, but when the package comes and the postage on the envelope is what you paid it tends to hurt less. lol.

Yeah that's the thing, the sellers don't usually set up the shipping cost to make money, they just pass on the cost to you (especially when it comes to small businesses like on etsy). it's just so frustrating, especially for us Canadians, we never get in those free shipping deals. Today I wanted to get a cute little Harry potter keychain for my friend for Christmas. The only problem was that the keychain was $12 and the shipping was $30 Bahaha . Are they insane?

It's those instances where you have to think the shipping has a large mark up!! I sent all my pre travel brochures for under $30! I know it wasn't to the USA but size wise I sent a lot more...

Not sure if they have stores anywhere else. I wore a BM dress from their store in Cross Iron but it's since closed. The one in Sunridge has been there eons! It's on the Target end of the mall on the upper level. I think David's are nicer material but everyone has their own styles and opinions, you know?

FYI Girls. I was just at chinook getting my ring cleaned and directly across from

Tiffany is an "Oksana"! I went in quickly and talked to the owner and she said they just opened last week so all their catalogues aren't in yet.. But that it is the same store as Sunridge and they will have a ton of BM dress options.

 

Just wanted to let you girls know they were there! I never get over to Sunridge so this was perfect!

I just wanted to say that I had my dress done at a seamstress outside of a bridal shop.   It was Perfect Stitches in the Beddington Mall.  She is FABULOUS!! I am soooo impressed with the work she did.

 

She took my dress out which required a lot of bead work to be duplicated, she did a hem, and a french bustle for $325.  

I would highly recommend her.

good to know! I'll probably take my dress for a quote to a bunch of different places, just to see how much I'm looking at in alterations

If any Calgary brides plan on using shells, I have a large unused bag of shells from Michaels.  Shells are medium sized I guess, not tiny and not massive.. I can send pictures. They are free, just would rather someone use them then toss them out.     Also have extra ribbon in orange, fuchsia, and turquoise - some organza like and some smaller regular ribbons (don't have a lot but some)  Thanks!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
