We wanted disney themed invitations and accessories for our wedding. We are big fans, especially of mickey mouse. We looked into finding some good stuff, and were willing to pay extra for the extra shipping etc being that we are in Canada, and it is a smaller market here, however we discovered that Carlson Craft felt that Canada is TOO small a market and chose not to get liscencing to sell disney products to canadians. Having spoken to many friends and other brides here in the great north, I know of lots of people who would buy these products should they be available!
It made me a little cranky, as Carlson Craft carries some great quality stuff and they are such a big company but failed to get my business because of a technicality, that I personally think they are wrong about the market. I know I'd be willing to pay extra to get the products I want for my wedding day, and I'm sure most of the other disney fans out there also would, given the chance. Instead of getting another non-liscenced product from Carlson Craft I chose to go with a completely different company and get plain invitations.!

We bought personalized return address labels here. Her processing and shipment was quick, and it was cuter and much less expensive than printing on the envelopes when we ordered our invitations. We are big disney fans, and it was great to find a company that could make us personalized disney wedding products, it's hard to find here in canada.
They have nice veils in their wedding section...we bought the basic white two-tier, cut one layer off, then bought swarovski crystals which my mom glued on - after steaming it it looks just as good as the store-bought crystal veils, but for about 10% of the price.
I am doing my own programs. We bought blue cardstock for the backing, and vellum for the program itself. We printed the programs horizontally on the vellum, two per page, cut them slightly smaller than the pieces of blue cardstock we cut in half, and used small jewel brads to attach the two together. We then used a punch to cut little cute-shaped holes in the vellum for the blue to show through.
It was a little time-consuming, but well worth it, they turned out great and were so much less money than paying for pre-printed programs!!!

great selection of bridesmaid dresses, the girls were so helpful. We ran into some snags with the dresses getting here early enough for us, but they have offered to UPS the dresses to the out of town girls as we are already one month past the expected delivery date...this is through no fault of the shop, the designer closed down 2 factories and got behind on their orders! Bridal debut has actualy pulled the troublesome designer from their racks for future brides, and are doing everything they can to get my dresses here in time for me!

they found my perfect dress! I found a dress i loved on the mannequin but it didnt look quite right and they knew just the right dress to find for me, when i tried it on it was PERFECT.
Have not had the pleasure yet as our wedding is in 3 weeks, but they sent us a nice reminder with all the info they need from us, and we've been to a couple weddings where they worked and they play great music.
tastiest cakes ever!!! so beautiful too. She even included delivery and set up for us. i love having talented vendors who take all the guess work out for us.
Invitations were gorgeous! She comes to your house withh all her books, helps with wording etc, does the order for you! We really wanted disney and as we are in canada it was not available to us and she had so many helpful suggestions.

Great Package options, plus deals for getting married off-season!
He's very talented, has done a great job so far and was even willing to reshoot our engagement pics when we discovered we had some not-so-fabulous wardrobe choices!
