    Also, if anyone has seen any deals on or has any fuchsia or grey/silver decor for sale, I'm definitely interested.

    Have a great day!!

    Hi JA2012,

     

    I had a fantastic experience with JustArtifacts! Firstly, the final cost you see after inputting your order is the final cost. There are no additional surprise duty or brokerage charges. The order came very quickly - 9 days between the day I ordered and Canada Post showed up at my door with it.

     

    I purchased eco wish lanterns (best prices) and LED lights (to use inside of paper lanters). The lanterns are awesome, bigger than I was expecting but they're going to look so good lit up in the night sky. The LED lights, two were faulty so I wrote back asking them to ship two replacements. They wrote back concerned they wouldn't arrive in time (they quote 2-4 wks for delivery to Canada) but I told them I was willing to take a chance considering the first order only took 9 days and it was important as it was for my wedding. They came back, full of congratulations, said they were sending it priority and they included a small wedding gift for us in the box! Talk about customer service going above and beyond! (Haven't rec'd the second package yet - they just shipped it four days ago.)

     

    Needless to say, I highly recommend them!

      OMG!! That's amazing!! Ok you just sealed the deal for them. I still have my shopping cart up online and I keep adding more and more to it. Their prices are fantastic! I was really worried about duty charges on purchases from the states. I once ordered a $150 swimsuit online from Neiman Marcus. When it arrived they charged me another $70 in duty. I was so annoyed I just had it sent right back! Lol.

      Thanks for your input. Getting excited now!!!

        Just found this thread! Love it :)

        Newbie bride from Toronto. The FI and I are getting married next November (2013) in Riviera Maya. This thread is going to help a lot, as many of the other threads are brides from USA, and the sites and places they purchased things are not applicable to us here in Canada. 

        Thanks!

          You guys just sold me on Just Artifacts too! I bought 50 floating lanterns on ebay but tried 2 of them and they didnt work :(. Money down the drain!

            Hey Lyssa,

            I'm not sure if you've chosen a destination yet. I'm going to Riviera Maya in November 2013, and the quotes that I got from my wedding planner are $1103/person (incl. tax) for a double occupancy room. I'm not sure if that's the rate all around the area, but I thought it was amazing. Maybe you could try that.

              Hi ladies, 

              Anyone from the Toronto GTA area that have suggestions on where to shop for bridesmaid dresses? I'm trying to find places with a wide range of selection (on colors) but haven't had any luck searching online.

                Hey! We went to David's bridal in Missasauga and I was impressed with how much my girls liked the dresses there! And they were cheap enough I could buy them for all the girls! :) Maybe check them out?

                  Hey FutureMrsWarner :)

                   

                  I am also getting married November 2013 in Riviera Maya! .. Have you picked your resort yet??


                  About the bridesmaid's dresses, I am thinking on going with convertible dresses. I like how they will be wearing the exact same colour but they can wear the dress in the way that best suits them.. Check out Henkaa they have a store in Toronto, and if you go into their website, you can order free swatches.

                    I honestly don't know how duty and brokerage charges are tallied, but it *might* have to do with the amount of your purchase. It sounds like you're ordering a lot, so I would come right out and ask JustArtifacts customer service (based on your onscreen total) if that will be it - no further charges. Just in case..!
