    Hi Ladies,

    I was looking at knottie pages and came across one who used Click the image to open in full size.

    They are $8 a strand (22 shells/strand). I'm considering ordering about 6 or so, but want to confirm with my WC if she can get a better deal since we'd have to rent the bamboo in PV.

    But just thought I'd share.

      I really like this idea and was thinking of doing something similar. I haven't decided between the shells or crystal beads. Let me know if you want to sell them after your wedding.

        I think JessicaLoves Brian had something like this. Maybe contact her about what she used.
        For the dance, at the reception, Maggie wore her crinoline and a lovely lace top. Looks like Tadd likes it!

              I really love this idea... but our wedding "arch" is actually where they typically hang the hammocks so it's REALLY wide. I'd need a bunch! If anyone has these and are willing to sell them after their wedding please let me know! Although... since my wedding is only two months away this probably won't happen! Worth a shot!

              upon further review... purchasing something like this http://www.target.co...e&LNM=B000FA7U8 A|Capiz_Door_Curtain&ci_src=14110944&ci_sku=B000FA 7U8A&ref=tgt_adv_XSG10001 might be a better alternative. You can cut the individual strings off if you'd like, then it's cheaper.

                  I did this too. It came out really pretty. I think there's a pic of my arch in the arch ideas thread. I loved it. I actually went in with a couple of girls I knew from the DW board on the knot (we were all using the same WC) and split the costs and then donated them to our WC.

                    I lvoe that look as well, I was thinking of just making them myself. Purchasing them WOULD be much easier though...
