    In case anyone is looking for real seashells or starfish for any projects or anything I thought I'd pass along where I ordered from and had a great expereince!  

     

    the site is http://www.trs240.com/index.html 

     

    She has a ton of options and selection of shells and starfish, etc. Best of all she ships to Canada and shipping is totally reasonably priced at $4.50!

     

    I purchased shells and mini starfish for our mini message in a bottle favours and theycame packed carefully so that none broke while in transit and they arrived super quick!

          Mine is the 20th. But so far i haven't heard of too many that day. But then again there's like 20 socials every weekend in this city. Crazy that 3 people at your work all have one that day. Do they all know each other? You would think they would coordinate! Lol well if you don't already have one your going to feel free to come to mine!!! Lol

              ahahahaha It's a "Manitoba" Thing. It is pretty much a big party (kinda like a reception) usually held at a commuinity centre to fundraise for things such as weddings. Usually the people make money off of "silent auction prizes" and booze. It's a good time :)

              Not only a Manitoba thing.  In Northern Ontario they are called Shags, in Southern Ontario they can be called a Jack and Jill or a Stag and Doe.

                  I don't know if Detroit is much of an option for us since many of the guests are from all across Ontario (including northern Ontario...). 

                   

                  Hoping to find a travel agent soon. 

                  I see you are from London also!  Did you use a travel agent locally?  Any recommendations? 

                   

                  Thanks!

                   

                  Try Marlin Travel (located in Walmart).  The one I'm using has a wedding specialist!  We've been really happy with service so far!

                    I contacted a past bride on BDW who was selling some decor items and arranged to buy them. She's just told me that she can't ship to Canada. I think the shipping manifesto requires her to indicate country of origin for the items, and since she actually knew they were made in China, wrote that on the form, and now the US won't ship the package to Canada.

                     

                    I suggested she just say they were made in the US...basically just not admit she knows that much about them. (I don't know about you but I couldn't tell you where any of the decor I've purchased is from!)

                     

                    Thoughts?

                     

                    Update: Great news - the US bride tried resending the package and it arrived today, no problems! Phew!! Thanks for your helpful suggestions ladies.
