    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

      so far we're only at $11.82 USD... ; ) that covers shipping to me, but I imagine it'll be less than $30 USD to send the fans to CA.

          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?
