    I LOVE this idea - thank you so much for sharing!!! I'm not much of a DIY person, but this is one project I definitely have to attempt.

You don't have enough time for that, but they do have different orchids there now in yellow, white, pink or green which range in price from $2-$5 per stem w/ is much cheaper than Michaels. I saw Joann had quite a few yesterday and they are 50% off this week
      Thanks sooo much! It all makes sense now. I was really stressing that I couldn't find a darn bag! Silly me. Anyways, how many stems did you buy?

        I am not having huppah but I used this idea to make orchid garland. We are having tikis down our aisle and I've stringing the garland along them. I made 2 11' strands and some smaller pieces to hang from the tikis to blow in the wind. I only spaced my orchids about an inch to 2 inches apart. I bought 30 stems and only used 26. Amy had about 20 blooms per strand so just decide on how many strands you want and figure out how many blooms are on each stem (usually 7-12 blooms) and get what you need.

        Make sure you get someone to help you!!! It takes a few hours, and really long if you're doing it by yourself!!

          Hey girls, just one question:

          I love this idea and I want to do it. But o the day of the wedding do you think the WC would want to put them up on the canopy or if we have to pay them to put the orchids up?
          Also I would love to use them at my reception. Do yuo think they will help us? Otherwise I cannot really see myself running aorung to arrnge everything!

              I have totally not been able to get this idea out of my mind as totally something I want to DIY for our wedding.

              I just came across a related idea as I was searching for starfish and sanddollar prices: Buy NATURAL DECORATIVE CORAL, BULK SEASHELLS, BULK STARFISH, and MORE at Saltwater Obsession

              What do you think ladies? Could this work instead of flowers? Or maybe alternated with flowers? The price seems pretty good on these...

                After all the hours I have spent on this forum so far, I just now found this thread. This idea is so amazing!! I definitely think I want to copy this somehow. Not sure if I'll use flowers or shells - I'm leaning towards the flowers right now. But either way I think it's beautiful!!!
