      Hi Heather! 

      Found them in Vancouver but $199 on Hastings & $160 in New West. Since I'm buying the dresses and have 4 BMs....decided to check online. After a lot of Googling, thinking and researching I decided to take a chance and order them online through netbride.com. The have a physical store in Minneapolis, MN and have an A+ rating with the BBB. They quoted $103 USD for each, no sales tax + shipping ($20 US or $50 Canada).  

       

      I shipping to my family in Cali and someone will bring them over for me in January, b/c I was worried about brokerage fees, being held at customs, etc. which would eliminate any savings. SO I'll let you know how it goes  =)

       

      How've you been? You missed the last meetup, was lots of fun. DId you decide on your photographer?

        Awesome...so lucky that you have family in Cali! There is so much stuff that I want to order online, but the shipping to Canada is ridiculous! Someone told me about these $5/year PO box rentals in Blaine. I think I am going to look into it! It could save me a lot of money!

         

        I'm sorry I missed the last meet up, glad you guys had fun!! Sept was just too busy for me! I'll try to make the next one though!

        I booked Leslie from Sakura for our photograghy!! SO excited about it.. her photos are amazing! We still need engagement pics so I think I'll ask her!

         

        My only real wedding stress right now is whether or not to have bridesmaids/groomsmen. Originally we weren't going to have any at all.. keep it super low key. Then we decided we wanted to ask only our siblings. Now we are thinking we don't want our friends to feel left out. I feel like I either need to have none, or 7 bridesmaids. Having 7 would be a huge extra expense... and also it would be kinda funny to have so many people standing up with us for such a small wedding (only 30-40 people).. I'm torn!

         

        How is your planning going??

            Hi Ladies.....

             

            It's been a while, so I thought it was time for an update.

             

            I choose to do the sole-less sandals as well.  I thought this would be a good option because 1) super cheap & easy to make 2) some of my bm's like flats and some like high-heels.  This way they can all match for the ceremony and can wear their choice of shoes for the reception.  Someone made a good point about the sand being hot....I didn't think about that!!!!  Not sure how I will handle this.....

             

            For favors I decided on a message in a bottle.  I am going to get a big bucket of sand from the beach, pick up shells, beach glass, etc.  and have everyone fill up their own little message in a bottle.  I will have some sort of love poem already in the bottle. 

             

            Loving everyone's ideas! 

             

            Erin & Nate 5/28/11

              Yea, definately check out those mailboxes, would totally make it worthwhile! (just watch out for getting taxed on the way back). Don't bother with the mailboxes at Point Roberts though, you almost always get taxed coming back becuase there isn't anything in Point Roberts so they know you're going there to pick up stuff.

               

              That's great! Love Leslie, we booked her for our "secret legal day"/at home reception day, May 7 so looks like she'll be flying out shortly after. We booked our engagement session for early November. We were originally thinking Feb. next year, but thought it would be nice to take them around the same time as we got engaged last year....will be chilly, but an excuse to buy a pretty sweater  =)

               

              wow, 7 is quite a bit! we have 4 each, so 8 in our wedding party and about 20 total coming (meaning only 10 people sitting down) and thought that would be weird but figure it'll all work out

                  Rosie great dresses!  Way to find the deal too.

                   

                  re:  this...  I've actually heard that the place in point roberts (called lettercarrier) is great!  A friend of mine swears by it.  She said you usually only get hit up for tax if it's over a few hundred dollars in value (otherwise rarely worth the paperwork for them)  and it's only the HST tax you have to pay... not brokerage fees or duty or anything.

                   

                  I got taxed on my wedding dress bringing it back  (boo)  but I figured, had I bought it here I'd still be paying that 12% anyways AND it probably would've cost more too.  So it wasn't so bad.

                   

                  anyways, just my input on the cross border mail stuff.  Yes, the might tax you.  But if you factor it into the price it still might be worth it.  and its DEFINITELY cheaper than having it delivered and having to pay brokerage on top of everything.

                   

                  Hope your planning is going smoothly ladies.  I'm not on this thread too often but it's exciting to see everyone's checking things off their lists
