Hi ladies,

 

I don't know if anyone is looking for any stamps, cardstock, or craft supplies. There's a great store called Bizzy B's by High Park subway station that is having a Black Friday sale for a lot of items. If anyone is in the area, you should check it out. I've been to the store before, and I loved it there.

Is this store on Bloor St? I need some 110lb stock paper

@Ashk...congrats and best wishes. I did end up calling a TA so hopefully I will have equally good luck with her.

 

@Dazeydawl These straws look amazing! Going to order the hot pink stripes or the polka dot ones.  I really don't need them but it's just another cute and inexpensive way to tie in my colours. THANKS!

 

Fyi..I feel like I'm addicted to this site/wedding websites these days. Am I the only nutbar like that? I am on it when I'm home, pop in and out while at work and now I just saw the phone app which i refuse to download because I'm on planning overload right now. Lol

Just an FYI creative bags is closed on Sunday, not sure about the others.

 

My FI just shaked his head and my family thinks I'm just riduclous so you are definately not the only one! But if he has a question about everything I'll tell him I'm going to post it online to get an answer so he likes that!

Curious to see if they are lame in real life. I dont have centerpieces and dont want to pay for them at the resort. This could be a very light and cheap substitute.

I have't seen those in person, but they look like they would be a great simple way to have centerpieces. I know you are having a lot of guests, but for your head table, you could get flower boxes to put your bouquet and your bridesmaids bouquets. That is another quick and simple touch :)

It is on Bloor Street. Here is the website. I'm not sure if they have that for sure, but if it's not far from you.. might as well make a trip and check out whatever they do have there.. http://bizzyb.ca/  I'm going to try and make a trip there this weekend as well.

I've never seen them in reality but my guess is that they may look a lil "lame" as you say but only to the ppl who are fixated on real flowers only. Having said that...I think in your photos they will look cute. AND...because it is a destination wedding anything goes and ppl aren't going to be expecting some lavish imports. They are light and can match decor easily. I say go with it and add some candles to jazz it up. Hell, I'm looking at lugging some dollar store vases and fake orchids with me. This would be a much easier solution.

Just another thought...these could be really cute and match well with the straws posted earlier. Depending on your colour theme. Scratch my previous comment. These could be amazing for a DW centrepiece. Who even looks at them anyways. You can even have a game and let guests win them and maybe stuff some other trinkets in the box like JA rum or keychain or something. OK now I'm all over the place but you get my drift.

Haha I like the idea of hiding stuff in them! I would probably have to put a ribbon or something around the box since its pretty ugly lol but I like the flowers. For $6 maybe I'll just buy one and experiment with it.

The box isn't ugly. It just depends on what your theme is. There has to be a way to work it in and make it all come together. IE: If you have a paper theme - add paper cones with confetti to the sides of chairs for guests to throw as you walk back up the aisle, use the paper straws for coctail hour and have paper lanterns or flower fans hanging from the ceiling. It could work very well.

Wow you're much more creative than I am!

I love the theme, but I definitely would have to re-plan and re-buy everything. Where were you a year ago? haha

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
