    Amjohnson I would love to see the note/tag, thanks! 

    I have heard it is hard to get starfish shipped to Canada, where did you get yours from? Also I have heard about them smelling too but maybe that was more shells then starfish?

     

     

    Janet I Love your saying very cute!

      Sorry to hear that!!! we chose to go with Misha Earle in Jamaica.. her work is amazing! her prices are cheaper than bringing someone with us.. ad she is so quick to respond and work with you.. she is awesome!!  www.mishaearlephotography.com  or she is on Facebook under Misha Earle Photography.. you can see her work, and contact her for package info etc.. she travels to the different areas, and no extra cost.. and on top of that, she covers the vendor fee and visitor fee for her and her side shooters.. so it is no extra cost for you if the resort charges you to have outside vendors.. 

      hope that helps!

      I know we've talked about this before but I'm sort of in a crisis right now and need HELP!

      We just found out that our (local) photographers may not be coming with us to Jamaica anymore!

      So what photographer from Canada are you bringing down with you? Or if your are going to Jamaica, which local artist have you chosen?

        I love the personalized M&Ms but had been warned that shipping to Canada was super expensive.  Do you mind sharing how much you got and what your shipping came to?  As much as I really don't need any more stuff, they would be such a cute addition!

Thanks gal!

                  Those cake toppers are so awesome, I can't wait for mine to come in, cake topper with just bride and groom is 65$, she charged me extra 10$ for dog and sign + 15$ shipping.

                  Just showed this cake topper to my FI and he LOVES it! Gonna hvae to change it to a Leafs jersey though. You know he is hockey obsessed when he has contacted the resort to make sure that he will be able to watch the World Juniors while we are down there at the sports bar. LOL. I'll check out that seller on Etsy. Hopefully not too pricey! 

                   

                  We are doing OOTs and maracas as our placecards - name on one side of tag, shake for a kiss poem on the other. I ordered them a week ago from amols.com. They have a really nice selection. I ordered 36 pairs, 12 in each of our 3 wedding colours. They already say Mexico on them, which I thought was nice. With shipping they were about 100 bucks.
