At Canada Weds, our mission is to provide wedding planners and brides to be the best content and advice for saving on their weddings. Our wedding directory features only “Canadian” retailers and service providers. We encourage you to check them out as a starting point for your own decision making before doing your wedding shopping online outside of Canada.

Whenever we see press covering Canadian wedding vendors, we like to share it with you. And, we encourage you (brides, planners and wedding vendors) to also pass along these great stories (did you know that you can contribute to as an expert contributor?)  Check out how one wedding favour, decor and accessories retailer in Canada is featured in the press by Purolator Canada. It showcases how adaptive Canadian retailers can be, in this case online wedding store, to create efficiencies for Canadian brides (and consumers in general).

Canadian Wedding Savings in CanadaA prior article hit on the notion that US prices on things like wedding favours and decor aren’t what they first appear to be in terms of your total cost. If you missed it, check out the truth about wedding shopping online in Canada versus the US. This article points out such things like “dollar at par” doesn’t mean you’re going to shop and get par, and that your wedding supplies will not come without extra costs. Even though online wedding retailers in the US don’t necessarily let you in on it, you’re certain to pay duties/brokerage fees that they don’t charge, but Canadian brides WILL be charged at the door by the courier on behalf of our friends at the border. Those wedding budget saving deals may not turn out to be deals at all! Also be sure to read the website fine print as many non-Canadian based wedding retailers don’t extend their free shipping deals or discounts to Canada – bummer!


Keep in mind, too, that the Canadian retailers – including wedding vendors – have taken to the Cyber Week madness to extend savings to Canadian customers and brides this time of year. For wedding planners preparing for a spring wedding or summer reception, this may be the best time of year to shop. Also, beating the spring-summer wedding season may secure stock of your favourite wedding decor and supplies.
