does anyone know of a cheap place to get 28 lanyards and zippered key card holders????? (with cheap shipping to canada?)  i was thinking of scrapping the idea, but then yesterday actually read a REALLY good review on trip advisor for my resort and he did recommend bringing a lanyard for the key.

Erin, I'm glad you finally found something he liked and in the right color.

 

I wish that I could find a check list for a destination wedding. I want to make sure I have all the little things covered but all the lists I find are either focused on local weddings and catering or don't cover all our little shopping lists, like sand ceremony and table cards.

 

For FI & GM, we still need to make a final decision on ties, FI is going shopping with them this weekend for shirt and pants.

 

Both his parents need attire.

 

I need shoes, but am holding off until dress #3 arrives.

 

Need to order BM jewelery.

 

We need vases for sand ceremony, I didn't want the traditional set.

 

I need to make paper cones for rose petals.

 

Need to find paper for programs, waiting for a good card stock sale at Michaels.

 

We need gifts for parents, BM & GM. (suggestions?)

Laura - someone else suggested checking out Acklands Grainger. They are a safety supplies store with locations everywhere. I'm pretty sure they would carry them and will usually let you break open packages. I don't know about pricing though because my company shops there almost everyday, so we usually get a big discount.

Yeah I think their shipping is pretty high actually, I think they charged me like $12 or something.

I LOVE the color of FIs shirt.  It actually matches the color I painted the kitchen last fall (yes, our kitchen is orange!).  I'm glad that is done.

 

When I look at all you have to do, I feel like I'm really forgetting stuff.  We are not doing a sand ceremony I guess... I never really thought about it, but I do like the idea... Hmm...

 

My parents also need attire, but I'm so not interested in working on that...which is bad, I know!

 

The gift for my parents is partially done I think...  We upgraded their room at the resort, so they will have a much nicer room!  But I feel I might want to do something else too...  Hmm... 

The gift that I'm doing for the BM, is I had custom bags made for them by a local girl on etsy.  I absolutely LOVE them!  I have also gotten them earrings, some special snacks for their bags, and I paid for 1/2 of their hair & make-up

 

I do not know what FI is doing for the GM....

    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
