    tkuzma,

    I have went to Mystique Tanning in the west end a few times....it was great. The lady sprays you to the color you wish ...it is not a machine you stand in.

      I just got some amazing shell garlands off Kijiji, Four 6ft strands for $15. Makes me feel like an idiot for paying $70 for shells of the internet haha. 

       

      Anyways keep your eye out on Kijiji for wedding stuff if you're looking to bring stuff down.

       

      These are kind of cute:

           I'm not a bride anymore, but I am from Edmonton and got married almost 2 years ago in El Doroado Royale, Mexico...hopefully I can lend some answers!

          And Congrats and happy planning to you all! DW is the best idea ever!! People still talk about our wedding and compare it to every Edm one we go to! ;)

Has anyone had laser in Edmonton and would recommend a place? 

           I had mine done at Urban Retreat in the west end. You can't have any tanned skin lasered and it does take months to get all your treatments in but the results were good for my wedding. I still don't have to wax my bikini area, however my underarms didn't take as well and within 6 months I was back to shaving.

           I had no problem with my "hangover kits" getting thru Mexican customs. They are mostly looking for illegal drugs and any fruits/plants so you should be ok but check the Jamacia government website for their rules.

            I have about 100 extra business cards for tip/ key holders if anyone is going to Jamaica in 2013. They look like this:

             

             

            Free if you want to pick them up in Edmonton. I live in Riverbend but can have them at my parents in Country Club (by Callingwood) if thats easier. 

             

            FYI I got my lanyards and zip badge holders from ebay at gcishopinline. Together they look like this:

              So I handmade my bouquet from real touch flowers from Michaels. It came to $45 for all supplies. And then I took it into Chintz & Company in Edmonton to add a few embellishments and WOW Sue is amazing there!! If you're looking to get a fake flower bouquet I would 100% go there! She let us take the space we needed and pull every flower that we thought would look nice, and then recommended what to add where and how to incorporate it. I ended up spending an additional $55, which included 1 flower, foliage, and the ribbon around the hand part and some diamonds on the handle too. I think normally there would be a charge for designing it too but since I had the majority done already (and since shes so generous) she didnt charge me. So she may normally charge, and I'm sure it's worth it, but even if you want to put it together yourself they have an awesome supply of flowers.

               

              I almost wish I hadn't gone to Michaels first.

               

              Anyways here is my bouquet before:

               

               

               

              And here it is after. It looks Much better in real life!

                Im looking to get Bubba mugs engraved for the wedding party. Does anyone know of a place that isn't ridiculous for engraving fees? I've look at a few places and there is a $10 surcharge per item unless you bought the item in store, which pisses me off since the mugs arent even worth $10 haha.

                Jreist I wanted to thankyou for the recommendation on the website for linens and chair sashes- I just got my chair sashes in the mail and they're pretty awesome for the price I paid! :)
