    Thanks guys! I wanted to go with a TA because I didn't want the headache of answering questions and booking stuff on my own. Turns out this is more of a headache than anything!
    So because of all this craziness, I've had to cancel the order on my beautiful dress. I need to try to make up all this money I've lost out on I've opted to just find a white sundress instead. Thought even about looking for bridesmaid dresses in white! Any suggestions of where to go in Calgary. "Project: cheap dress" is starting today!

I will need to call and find out, but we were hoping to find something in the city so we can see if it is too shiny or not for FI. Do you happen to know if they will customize a bit? Thanks for all the info. you provided on that thread. It was your posts that made me check it out in the first place!
      Yay! I'm glad that I could help you out! To be quite honest I'm not sure what custom work they would do but I would definitely be calling them to ask. We got: Black Tungsten with inlay and even though it's not a matte finish I think the black colour makes it seem less shiny over all.

      Now when it comes to being able to ship it back, I can't comment on custom products but I do know that with the engraving option, it is a one time fee that you pay. Period. If you need to get your ring re-sized or if anything is not right, you can still return the ring. I was really shocked because we'd been planning on waiting to have it engraved until we were sure about the fit and everything... but they said why bother with extra shipping since that it the policy they have! Sweet!

      P.S. it looks like they have a decent sale on right now so it may be worthwhile to take a look :)

        AWw, I'm so sad for you that you have to cancel your dress order!! That just doesn't seem fair. If it helps you any, we really didn't have too many questions from our guests about booking. And we had guests flying out of Toronto, Winnipeg and Calgary (plus one routing from Nanaimo, BC) so we had pretty good coverage! I guess it just depends on how saavy you are with the websites of all the booking agents.

        P.S. Check your prices at itravel2000.com to see what they offer. I had to book our photographers room through them and when you PHONE your booking in, they can most often give you a discount of $100 plus off whatever the web price was. The girl had said that if we'd booked our wedding through them that all of our guests would have received a discount, although I'm not sure how much. So perhaps you could use them as your travel agent??

        Oddly enough, go check Sears ONLINE because they've just added some new wedding dresses to their catalogue which are seriously nice, and look perfect for a DW. The bonus - they're only like $150 or something! Otherwise if you can manage a road trip down to the US, it seems like David's Bridal is always having really good sales so it might be worth the gas/hotel costs? Otherwise try checking Macy's and JCPenney online as I'm pretty sure both ship to Canada and also have some really pretty dresses. Not the usual place you'd think of looking but it'll save you the bucks!!

            I agree with the ladies, you shouldn't have to forfeit you deposits just because they changed their story! Did you book any guests through them or are you forfeiting your entire $3000? I'd certainly fight to get your money back.

            As for cheap dresses, I was at CrossIron Mills the other day and BCBG had quite a few long, white dresses that might work...

              Just curious about your deposit... can you not use that money towards your own flights or say a parents flights?? I thought I remembered my TA saying something like that when she'd been trying to figure out packages for me (although her prices still weren't good enough!). You couldn't get your money back like a refund but it could be directed elsewhere for flight costs. Worth asking about if you haven't already and it might save you having to rebook??

                I know there is info on where some people have bought travel mugs but I'm wondering if anyone has found some good deals LATELY in Calgary?....and any really good ideas on putting labels on yourself if it's too costly to get the mugs printed. I checked out 4imprint but the quantities are too high, I only need around 35. Ideas are appreciated!

                      Boo - check out Custom T-shirts, Personalized T-shirts, Custom T-shirt Printer Toronto

                      That's where I'm ordering my mugs from and you can get them in lower quantities at good prices. One caution - they have a TON of merchandise and it takes time to go through. They will have lots of offers for the same style mugs, just at different minimum quantities and different per item costs.

                      I wanted a closed handle mug so I think the ones we're going with are PT88 which is very similar to most that people have ordered from discountmugs.com in the US. I can send some more later if you like...
