@tinkersofi  Believe me when I say there is no rhyme or reason to Canada post's delivery patterns and I'm dead serious when I say that!!! I'm not being facetious! If I remember correctly Richmond BC is a major hub but why it would go from the delivery city back to Richmond is anyone's guess. I would go after them and keep after them. And then they wonder why they're losing money and people hardly use the service anymore..... lol


I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

Exactly! If only they were a bit more efficient I'm sure they could find a lot of lost money haha. It's really really frustrating.

Yes, it's been a process haha. It's still in BC! Work and life has been a little bit crazy the last few days so I haven't had a chance to call Canada Post. I'm so overwhelmed! 

 

We're getting legally married on Aug 7, so not yet! Otherwise I would have posted pictures already ;) hahah. I still have to e-mail the person marrying us (I forgot what they're called haha), with our reading and telling her we're just doing the regular old vows. Again, no time for anything!

Richmond, BC is where the Vancouver airport is located. Have no idea why that's where they would chose to send your package, but it makes sense in terms of shipping hubs. You should get really worried if it ends up in Prince Rupert or Kamloops  :D

 

P.S. Good luck!  :)

@vancouverpetunia I finally called today. Apparently there is a problem with the address and couldn't be delivered. I contacted the seller, they told me that by putting a trace on the package it can be fixed and will be delivered. I just hope that all of this happens on time. Otherwise I don't know, I might just not have a necklace :(, unless I find something here locally. 

 

As to the other package, well, CP says that customs hasn't released it back to them. This is all he said she said. CP is saying that there is a big red warning on it and customs needs to inspect it closer. It's cheap jewelry for crying out loud, I'm not trying to import blood diamonds here. They told me to check the customs website for answers on what I could do but that website is just useless. I'm just hopeless at this point that any of this stuff will make it back to me  :(  :angry:

Oh no!! I really hope you get your necklace in time. Canada Post drives me crazy. I had something sitting at customs for over a month and I just finally received it a couple weeks ago.

I have faith for your necklace but not so sure I'd bank on the BMs stuff. Which really sucks big time :( I certainly hope it works out or you can find a good alternative. What has PayPal said?

I complained big time today with Canada post and told them that it was ridiculous that I had to go through the Australian postal office for a package that I knew was mine and that was right here in Canada! I checked with the seller and the address was right by the way. They opened up a dispute for me and said that it should arrive within the next week. I told them that it better because I was sick of them losing my packages. Let's hope that it does arrive in the next week, I'm crossing my fingers.

I also don't know about the BM gifts since they insist that it's in customs and there is just nothing I can do .

As for paypal, it opened up a dispute with the seller, not with Canada post or customs. I know for certain that it's not the seller's fault so I feel pretty bad about it. The seller is on vacation right now but she wrote to me saying that she will try to look into it.

However, the good news is that CP hasn't lost everything! Haha. My brochures arrived today. I'm so happy with how they turned out!

Also, the rest of my photo booth props arrived. I'm also very happy with them. I paid $3 for them on eBay and they're really good! I haven't assembled them yet because I learned my lesson. I assembled about half of the photo booth signs and now I'm having trouble packing them haha, so I'm bringing my hot glue gun to Mexico to finish putting these together.

You make a valid point that the dispute would be with the seller, ugh!!!  It's a tough spot because you should be reimbursed, but I see your point that it's totally not the seller's fault. And we all know CP won't be paying for it.   Keep us posted.

 

OMG LOVE your brochures, they are super cute and festive.  Seeing your spot for room numbers makes me wish I had went thru with it.  A fantastic idea, knowing what I know now :)

 

Your photo props are not only cute but a steal of a price! Good job.

Us brides are bargain hunters that is forsure.

 

Just at about a month now - wooohoo!! What day do you fly out again?
