I am ordering these for my favors. I was going to use trees but than thought how many will actually plant the tree? At least you can use these.......Total price is 186.00 but that does not include duty.... I looked for other companies that are in Canada but could not find any cheap prices.....I will have our names, wedding date and a heart with recycle arrows on it......

I only have 99 days till my wedding.....

I tried my dress on and its's a little small....

Not too small but I need to get the chest or sides altered....

I am just wondering what is the average cost to have your wedding dress altered.....

From the research I did, it may cost me a little more because of all the beading and lace.....

Oh and its way too long...... But in immaculate condition.....
