    Has anyone sent their deposit through a Bank of America account transfer to avoid the wire fees?  If so, can you please PM me the last name on the Jellyfish account?  I can't tell what it is from the info Mayte sent - I've already sent her an email but I'm not expecting an answer right away.  Figured one of you may know the answer !
    & congrats Caitlin!!

      We did a bank-to-bank transfer from another US bank. We definitely thought the information provided was not enough info, but we just made it out to "The Jellyfish" and it went through. 

       

      Make sure you keep ALL of your confirmation numbers and receipts. Mayte's boss lost our transfer for over two months and I had to finally send a photo copy of our transfer receipt before he found it.

        Hi AquaCait,

         

        I love your candy buffet!  Did you bring the candy with you or did Mayte get it for you?  If you brought it, do you mind sharing where you purchased it from?  I'm looking for similar stuff, but have only really seen some of it in massive quantities.  Did you find you had enough?  I guess I'd also like to know how many guests you had.  Sorry for all the questions!!

         

        Thanks,

        Mimi :)

          Hi Mimi! No worries about questions, I will do my best to answer you. We had 33 people, including us which was a great number. The candy we did bring down ourselves, and it weighed a ton (thankfully our seats were upgraded on the plane and we were allowed an extra 10kg/22lbs each for luggage...). Plus Mayte had said that the candy they get is different from the US and Canada. So, we had: Swirly lollipops - by Wilton. Bought at Michaels Rock candy in our colours - a candy store in the Scarborough Town Centre Sugar-free jellybeans - the nutty chocolatier or bulk barn Sugar-free baskin robbins candies - the nutty chocolatier or bulk barn Candy sticks - bulk barn Salt water taffy - bulk barn Itapian almonds - Francesca bakery in scarborough There was also a great website based in NJ that had awesome candy, I think it was called oh nuts (something along those lines) that had awesome candy, but wouldn't ship to Canada...

              Maybe I'll try that then.  Trust, me, I'll definitely keep the records - in fact I'll probably event make a screen shot of the confirmation too.  I'm a little bit of a paperwork hoarder but I trust no-one ;-)  Thank you!!!

                 We live abroad, so we couldn't just go in to our local bank to do it. With help from the 1-800 number, we were able to figure out how to do it online. The final "proof" I sent was actually a screenshot, so that's not a bad idea!!

                  Thanks for the details!  Michaels for candy - never would have thought of that!!  Now if only they had bulk barn in Vancouver!  Did you have any trouble with candies melting at all?

                    Nope. We specifically didn't buy anything chocolatey or gummy so it couldn't melt or get sticky... And a good tip, when you are taking stuff to Mayte, I used my Heys wheeled carry-on, loaded it up and left it with her. Then on the wedding day, I got it back with our guest book, cake topper, champagne flutes, etc...

                      All i have to say is that Mayte is AMAZING!!!!! She is so super busy making everyones day special! i just don't know how she does it. She exceded all of my expectations on every detail i sent her. we had 30ppl at our wedding and it was perfect. We had pastor york, photophil as our photographer and dj mannia.

                       

                      AquaCait, we were there on your wedding day for our meeting, everything looked so beautiful, congrats! We opted to do al carte, which was perfect! Mayte, reprinted a menu for us. I asked her to remove any appetizers and  any dish over $30 per plate. everyone was so pleased to have so many options. if you have any questions, just let me know.
