    Hi Girls!

     

    Have any of you been to Michael's lately and seen those little starfish (pack of 3) in the discount isle ... $3 I believe.  I'm short about 3 packs!

      Hi!
      If you are still looking for a travel agent I would definitely recommend Lorena from Wander Travel (Streetsville). She has made our process so much easier! And has done way more than she is suppose to. She did a site visit and spoke to our resort wedding planner, and brought back pictures to help us choose the best location at the resort. Let me know if you want her information. :)

        Does anyone know any good places to go looking at table cloths and runners?  I know there are some online, but I do like seeing things in to person to get a better sense of fabric and colour.  I'm in the GTA.

I can't even imagine that but if she's telling you that she can handle it, then maybe she means it. But regardless of her health situation or that you used to work together, you need to do what is best for you and your guests.
          I went through a lot of travel agents before I settled on one who is actually in Mississauga Ontario. Knowing how our families are, I wanted someone who was getting the best deal for us but also has great customer service. My guests LOVE her. I hope you end up with the same experience!

          We most  have put our deposits down unfortunately. 

          Im glad you found someone everyone loves,  the most important part is all guests feel comfortable in their travels and the pricing of course.

            If you know her personally, you could always make a nice meal and bring it over to her house.  Check in on her and see how she is doing.  She will appreciate that you thought of her in that light.  While you are there sincerely ask her if she thinks she will be ok to handle the wedding.  Tell her that you definitely understand either way what her decision is.  It's a delicate matter, but I think if you go into it thinking of her it will all work out.

            Good luck!

            Thank you for the note of confidence. I will take your advice and go see her. I just want to her to know we are behind her in her fight but we also have our wedding to consider. what a scenerio.

                You could try local places that rent napkins and runners to get a sense of the fabric. I took a chance, ordered online and am very happy with what I received.
