@willett.c: I’m a British Columbia, Canada bride too! *waves*

I ordered my wedding invitations from weddingbee and I’m shipping them using Bongo International: https://bongous.com/

I haven’t actually received the invitations yet but I did get an email yesterday saying they shipped. Their pricing was a little higher than most shipping (cost me $50 to ship them from Bongo) but they do weigh 7 pounds so that’s probably not too bad.

Good luck!

@willett.c:  Where do you live in BC? I use a mail receiving service in Blaine called Hagen’s. You register with them. They give you an ID#. When I order things online I have them shipped to

Jane Doe 57689

123 Main St.

Blaine                                    this is Hagen’s address

They send me an email when I have an item to be picked up. I zip over the border to pick it up. I always declare at the border and am almost never asked to pay GST. There is no duty. Canada Border Services is way more interested in drugs and immigration that collecting a few dollars in tax for the provincial government.

This way you can take advantage of all those websites that offer free shipping in the USA.

What kind of vases are you looking for? Have you checked the Dollar Stores?

I’m not from B.C but I am a Cdn Bride! I’m from Ontario. There are two Cdn websites I found that might help you out! I’m not sure what exactly you are looking for, but these sites have lots of products

Hagens only charges $2.50 if you pay an annual $12 fee or $5 if you choose not to. You do have ot pick up the package within a few days though or they charge an additional storage fee. That might not work for you.
