@Beluga:  Deep breaths, happy thoughts, you’ll come out on the other end of it with a smile and a hubby 🙂 Just don’t ship anything through the mail, Canada Post is on strike (don’t get me started lol).

Just remember all of your planning will result in a wonderful day for you and your family and that the small details, though personally important, can’t ruin the reason for your day, your union and celebration with friends and family. I keep picturing the bigger picture and it helps me pull myself out of that black pit of despair I keep slipping into when choosing ribbon color and seating arrangements.

Good luck! Hope your day is everything you want it to be 🙂

I’m sorry I don’t have any advice for you about carrying things over the border, but I just wanted to say, go eat the cookie. You deserve the cookie! Wedding planning stinks.

You are very organized and your friends will ensure that everything you need will arrive here in Canada.

I don’t know, and haven’t taken the time to look up what dollar value US customs lets you bring back into the country after a trip to Canada without paying duty or taxes. If you have any concern that your bridal party might exceed that limit with their shopping and gifts, I would make copies of your receipts for the bridal party gifts and give a copy to each attendant in a sealed envelope. That way they would have proof that the item was purchased in the US and not subject to tax or duty on their return.

You can instruct them that they are not to open the envelope unless they have problems at customs, and if not to destroy the receipt when they arrive home.

I don’t have a cookie but I just finished baby shower cupcakes. You’re welcome to snack on those.

I have had some bad experiences trying to get stuff over the border, however, let’s not talk abou that. I’m sure the wedding gods will make it all work out. You’re lucky to have such good friends too.

Muahahahahaha!!!

Well here’s a couple of things. I cross a lot.

We tried to take 30 metal spatula’s accross. Really long story. We couldn’t. We had to leave them. They gave them back to us on the way back though. I also had issues taking sealed wine bottles accross. I would have never thought about that either.
