    Whitemud creek is so nice, what a gem. It is expensive though. The capacity at Capilano does concern me becasue I am thinking around 80 will be coming, but their fees are reasonable! I got to go looking at all of these places right after New Years! Its coming so soon and before I know it all of the places are going to be booked.

      I found some great local jewelry makers in Edmonton when I was at the Make It craft show a couple of weekends ago. Her company name is Sapphire-Jewellery and she custom designs stuff for brides and their bridesmaid. I bought some cute earing from her and I am going to meet up with her in the New Year to design stuff. Below is her website.

        Hey has anyone ordered favors, etc from US sites and have to pay customs or duties on it when it arrived? I just ordered a bunch of stuff from Beau-Coup and then after i submitted it had the customs, duties message! I already paid $45 on shipping I don't want to be suprised with more charges when it all gets here!

          YIKES! Some sites you do and some sites you don't... When my 2 BM dresses came from BCBG in the states - total was around $400-ish the duty was $80!!! I've had to pay it when I've ordered from American Eagle too but it's always included at the end of the transaction so I don't pay it upon arrival. Hopefully you don't get a nasty surprise! If there was a message about having to pay the duty upon arrival I would prepare for the extra cost! My dresses came UPS.

            I know! I am thinking it will be a lot and can't decide if I should just pay it or cancel the order! I searched and can't find it all here and its quote a bit more. Why can't Canada just have all the things I want!

              I can't really see a need for a wedding planner if you use a resort that includes a coordintor in your package.  I know with the Karisma resorts they have WC in Miami that you deal with by email/phone and then thay transfer all the info to your on site WC.  Ours went very smooth and anything extra I needed(putting candles&favors on tables and setting up our guestbook/postcard table)I just enlisted a good friend to help with and bought her a beach massage for helping us out!

                      I only ended up paying $18, on my order of $325 I think it was. Surprisingly good!
