    Anybody in Calgary looking to split on some zipper badge holders for key card/tip holders??
    I can buy 100 cheaper than buying 50 and I only need Maximum 40...so if anyone is willing to go in with me let me know...
    $12.65 Canadian + $10 USD shipping...
    here's the link:
    100 Business ID Card Badge Holder w/ Zipper Vertical ZV on eBay.ca (item 260547055619 end time 03-Mar-10 22:57:59 EST)

    If anyone wants to go in the listing ends in 16 days I think, so just send me a pm :o)

    Thanks Ladies!!

I would NOT recommend Ethos, Ive never been helped by such rude people; Jennybell, I guess I should have asked for Betty I actually ended up buying my dress in Edmonton at Pure Bridal and loved their service and dresses!

            Who are you guys using for alterations?? Im booked at this place called Lillianas in Kensington because Ive heard good things about her but Im still scared haha
            Who did you end up using for alterations? I'm looking for someone, but its scary handing the dress off not knowing.

              Anyone looking for some good OOT bag goodies, I hit the Dollar Giant off MacLeod Trail and Heritage Drive...everything under $1.25...

              Some things that caught my eye:

              1. Dish wipes (they look like really thick double sided cloths, you just add water and the dish liquid is already there!! Good if you're giving travel mugs 20 per box but I forget if they were $1 or $1.25 per box)

              2. Large bottles of Hand Sanitizer, 2 per pack (probably double or triple the amount of the 3 pack at Dollarama) and again can't remember if these were $1 or $1.25...

              3. Gel Eye Masks, $1.25 each Good for BM's...

              That's all I can think of right now, I should have done a physical list and not a mental list!! lol

I can relate a bit about working around a fireman's schedule because my brother in law (BIL) is also a fireman and we had to patiently hope that he'd be able to join us but unfortunately his schedule won't work He's got a bunch of tests in the exact same week as we ended up booking but that's just the way it works sometimes. What firehall is he at right now? I wonder if the guys have run into each other :)

                If you're getting overwhelmed or need some help/direction with your planning just shout - but you've definitely found the best place ever to help you figure everything out!

                He is down at the Southland station, but it is his first station as he recently got out of recruit school, how long has your BIL been a FF?

                I just can't seem to pick a resort/destination. I am pretty set on the Mayan Riviera but my dad and my fiance's mom seem a little leary about Mexico in general. They both say they will be happy with whatever I pick but I am torn. I also have found 2 fairly good photographers around Playa del Carmen that are a reasonable price. That's another big reason I am leaning towards Mexico. I know when it comes down to it, it's my day and ppl will go there to make me happy, but I want to pick the right place for all involved.

                Where are you holding yours?

                  Yah my BIL has only been a FF for about 9 months now so he had his recruit graduation in late spring this past year?? I wonder if your FI knows him!?! Ask about Vandenberg. I know he just switched halls in the last week or two so I can't remember where he's just moved to but his last couple of halls he was in the north end of the city.

                  If you need some help deciding between resorts, I'm sure there are lots of us here who could throw in our two cents on how we decided lol! Feel free to pm me if you need to! We're really excited to have our wedding at Dreams Puerto Aventuras in a couple months... and all our friends are really looking forward to it as well.

                    Wow, I'm so behind. Thats what you get for going to work... pfft.

                    Welcome Jessi! You will become a BDW addict in no time :)

                    Met with a photographer this morning and I really liked her. Not sure if I should be picking the only one that I've met with but I have a good feeling. She's going to do our engagement pics on the 28th so we'll see how good we clic.

                    ALSO, fyi 20% off your entire purchase at Michaels this Saturday! I was there today and found these luggage tags I've been looking for then I saw the sale sign. So, I'm embarassed to say I HID the luggage tags amongst the tea lights and I'll go back Saturday to get them. Anything to save a buck! HAHA I'm sure I'll have nightmares all week!
