Been busy with my latest project. Mighty Mutts a off leash small and toy breed dog group. It's been so successful. We were the winning team that raised the most money for the Humane Society. What a great group of friends and I only just met them (3) months ago.

Jackets to suit his body type
In choosing a tuxedo or suit for that special day, at least as important as rolling with the latest trends is choosing a style and cut that suits your shape. Heres some tips to help you choose your perfect jacket.
Tails: As long as you have longer legs in proportion to the rest of your body, this highly formal choice will be a fantastic look. If you dont, the strong break between the front and back of this tuxedo can be unflattering on short or round men.
Cutaway: Also known as a morning coat, this style with its swallowtail lines looks good on just about anyone, but its especially useful for creating a look of height on shorter men.
Single Breasted (Three-or Four-Button): The unbroken line and slim fit of these high-buttoning jackets look terrific on tall, slimmer men, but thicker-chested guys should avoid as they may look as if they've been stuffed inside them.
Single-Breasted (One- or Two-Button):This most classic jacket style, looks great on nearly every body shape. Two-button is better for taller men, one-button on shorter ones. Why? Its all about clever optics: more shirt showing means a longer visual line, making the man in the jacket look taller. Generally, for both jackets and vests, the higher the buttons the narrower and taller the guy should be.
Double-Breasted: Traditionally, if youre short or stout youd be told to stay far away from these boxy jackets. Actually, a double-breasted jacket can do a great job tactfully hiding some things youd prefer not to show especially now that fitted double-breasted styles are more common.

Canadian Invitations - stamps
Thought I would do a post on postage required for your wedding invitations or save the dates.
Invitations designs vary, and so does the amount of postage required
Factors that could increase your postage costs include:
Size: Oversized or irregular shaped invitations may cost more. The farther your envelope deviates from the conventional rectangular shape, the greater your chance of paying more postage.
Thickness: Invitations with many inserts or with embellishments such as bows or ribbons may require additional postage. Also, make sure your RSVP cards are thick enough - as a rule of thumb, if your assembled envelope is as thick as an index card, then it will pass.
Weight: Invitations made with thick card stock, or that are filled with inserts may be heavier than the standard 30g, which would require additional postage.
Effective January 14, 2008
PRICE PER ITEM
BASIC LETTERMAIL Up to 30g Over 30g up to 50g
Standard (S/L) $0.52
OTHER LETTERMAIL 51 g Up to 100g Over 100g up to 200g Over 200g up to 500g
Non-standard and Oversize (O/S) $1.15 $1.92 $2.65
When to mail the invitations
Timing is everything! Here are some ways to make sure your guests receive their invitations with ample time to reply:
Send out invitations 4 to 6 weeks before the wedding date
Mail invitations being sent within Canada 2 to 4 days before the desired arrival date
Mail invitations being sent to remote areas of Canada, U.S. or International destinations even earlier
For those who are looking for some really pretty stamps to be released this year check out the "Rhododendrons" stamp to be released on March 3, 2009 or perhaps the "Celebration" stamp which was released in January.
Canada Post Release Date March 3, 2009
Though rhododendron is Greek for red tree, its clusters
of vibrant bell-shaped flowers are commonly found
in magenta, purple, pink and white shades, marked
with speckles and splashes of colour
Canada Post Release January 2009
This domestic rate stamp will be a perfect
to many of lifes joyful celebrations, including weddings,
anniversaries and graduations. The stamp will be available
in a booklet of 10.
Just remember to take one complete invitation to your local postage office to be weighed and confirm postage required. BEFORE you purchase your postage.
I used Canada Post Picture Postage for our wedding invitations (it's more expensive) but I have been to many people homes and guess what? yes they have kept the entire invitation including the outer envelope because it had our engagement photo.
