Canadian Brides!!!!!!!!!

Hi luvmoo, I'm also having a starfish themed wedding. Can you share with me some of the places that you've ordered your starfish from? I'm looking for large brown sugar starfish of about 6-8" for our gazebo and the aisle for the ceremony? I'd also love to hear where you got your edible starfish for the cake!

Also on the starfish note, has anyone heard of any issues bringing real starfish into other countries? Our wedding is in Mexico and I thought I ready on here at some point in time that it might be an issue, however I can't find that thread! Thanks!

Ohhh...I didn't even think about that as a possibility! lol!  I was reading that someone else had ordered $110 worth of the bulk bags, but that shipping was over $60!  Then when UPS delivered they charged additional fees of almost $50 so the shipping alone came to the same price and the M&Ms themselves.  I just dont' want to get burnt with UPS again!  I hate all the additional fees!  Might have to get them shipped to a friend in the US.  Just trying to decide whether to order bulk and repackage vs ordered the prepackaged.

How did this gem of a thread slip by by me????  I have alot of reading to catch up on..only made it to page 24...lol

205 days till our big day and I've been going crazy searching the internet for ideas for favors, OOT bag contents, table setting and all thats inbetween.

I was able to get my hands on some very cute natural jute tote bags at Dollarama ($2) for my OOT bags, burlap pouches for my "Wedding Week Survival Kits", as well as some mini heart palm fans & beach starfish favors for table decorations.  Thank you all for your input...I look forward to returning to this thread again & again!!!

Wow, that never happened to me with UPS, but that's is brutal. I am going to look into that and if that's the case I will go with something else. Not sure if some candies will be worth 200+.

Welcome Butterfly67!!! This site and fellow brides have been great!

 

I agree with kat2012, not sure if candies would be worth that much.  Can't believe how expensive they are! 

 

Is anyone else doing luggage tags?  If so, are you making them yourselves or going the Vistaprint route? 

 

@Kat2012 - Love, love your cake topper!!

I'm doing luggage tags. I ordered two different business cards from Vista - front and back. I will just glue them together. I bought badge holders from ebay, not luggage pouches because they need to be laminiated, and I don't know what information people want on their tags and with the badge holders people can write their own. I will be using bright ribbon in our colour to attach them. I;m sending them out with our thanks for booking/information brochure that we will be mailing at the end of this month!

Hi Manda,

How is your planning going? How many days left now? lol...Yikes..I have one day less then you!

In your package you are mailing out this month, what are you including? We are doing something similar, we are sending a pocketfold invitation -informal but want to include some information and luggage tags too. I am having a hard time to try and figure out what to put and the wording. Any thoughts or ideas of what you are including would be appreciated. Thanks!

Yup!! They are just white, made out of modeling chocolate.. My Aunt is a cake decorator, so i went to "cakesbysam.com" and ordered them.. big ones and small ones.. and then i ordered a starfish mold from there so my aunt can make more!.. i also bought the dusting powder in our wedding colors so we can dust the white starfish with some color :)

I also got the large sugar starfish for my arch, and decoration.. i got them from Ebay believe it or not.. from a company by the name of Florida Shells and gifts. the sellers name was " anyname99"  got them for a decent price.. they came super well packed, and not one broke!! they are awesome! mine are all about 8' starfish so they were perfect!!

 

My wedding favors are the white finger starfish, with little tags with our names on them and our wedding date.. they are adorable.. i got them from hansonellis.com
