Thank you all so much for your reply. I think Louella I'll take some of your advice. I may ask a couple people to bring things if I know them. Thanks very much for all your responses I certainly appreciate them!

Best cheese store in Vancouver?

Hello,
I'm planning my friend's bridal shower in Vancouver (I'm from San Diego) and would like to get some nice cheeses. She lives in Richmond and I'll be staying there. Are there any specialty cheese shops or can good cheese be found at local supermarkets? I'm also on a budget so some reasonably priced places would be great.
Thanks in Advance!

Wedding Shower Planning- with very little time to prepare

I was THINKING of making it a potluck cheese/chocolate thing but I was scared it was tacky. I don't know any of her Vancouver friends very well so I'm unsure what they would think. Last thing I want is for people to feel burdened... but I definitely thought of it... now you're confirming that. Oh, conundrum what to do?

Wedding Shower Planning- with very little time to prepare

So I'm planning my best friend's wedding shower. She lives in Vancouver and I live in San Diego. I will be flying out the night before the shower and get there about 8pm.

She wants to have the shower about 1-2pm so I'd only have the morning to shop and prepare. I'm also on a tight budget so that doesn't help.

I'm torn between a cheese & chocolate menu (her favorite things) or a tapas menu (her wedding is gonna be kind of Spanish style). I love the cheese & chocolate menu- it's fun and it'd be less work- BUT it'd be more expensive. The tapas menu could take a lot more work but be less expensive.

I could possibly make a thing or two before hand as long as it doesn't require refrigeration and isn't too terribly fragile so I can take it in my luggage.

One thing I do know is that there will be sangria. So if you have a great white and/or red sangria I'd be glad for the recipe! I'm open to any recipes and themes! Thanks in advance!
