US Brides willing to receive packages and ship to Canada

Recommended Posts

Thanks to everybody for your willingness to help, kellygrrrl and I have made the first couple of steps in ordering these fans and hopefully all will go well :D


I'm certain that the shipping won't be like $100 even those we're shipping to her and then to me, hehe

hey ladies - wanted to report the latest. so the 40 sandalwood fans shipped to me in the US at $11.82 and then cost to Canada (JUST under 4 lbs, which helps greatly with customs forms) was $16.80, for a total shipping cost of $28.62. even after you factor paypal conversion fees (3.9% or under $5 for the whole thing), related costs were a third of what the website was asking. it also helps to put a gift value of <$20 so there are no customs fees (hint, hint ; ).


my suspicion is that many of these sites are using solely FedEx or UPS as their shipping partner, thus making it nearly impossible to send packages at a reasonable rate.


if anyone else needs help, please don't be afraid to ask.

I am a Canadian Bride and used to fall in love with favors on theknot until I found out they do not ship to Canada. They instead referred me to their sister site, American Bridal. Their prices are not as great, but this week the fans I have been eyeing for almost a year now are on sale for $1.40 each, the personalized sandalwood fans. I only need like 40 so I jumped at the opportunity - then my shipping was $86.21 and my duty fees were going to be another $28.75. The fans themselves with my coupon code only came to like $45! Then they want me to drop another hundred bucks to ship them? Eeeeeeeyuck.


The shipping can't be that horrendous for you USA brides, I'm hoping. Anybody willing to help? embarrest.gif

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
