Ask a Planner... "Heel Protectors AND Gobos AND Cupcake Stands OH MY!"

Ask a Planner…

“Do you know where to find…

1.     …those little rubber heel thingies that keep high heels from sinking into the grass?”

These ones are called Sole Mates and can be purchased locally from:


Lisa's Bridal Salon Ltd

681 Columbia St
New Westminster, BC V3M 1A8


Lord’s Shoes Vancouver
2932 South Granville St
Vancouver BC V6H 3J7

2.     …someone who makes those monogram lights that you see on the dance floor or behind the head table at weddings?”

Yes!  They are not inexpensive at anywhere from $200-500.00 each pending number of letters and size, etc.  The industry term for them is a Gobo and you can get one manufactured and rent the projection equipment here:
