how many extra sand dollars to buy

Recommended Posts

I would purchase 100 even (just in case of breakage and unexpected guests). Are you writing on them too? You may want to purchase extra of you mess up, lol.

 

I bought 200 starfish, way more than needed, but it was my first purchase so I exaggerated a bit.

I was going to suggest 125 - I guess it just depends how confident you are if you are writing on them!

I'm going to print separate rectangle placecards and tie them to the sand dollars with a ribbon. My handwriting sucks :), and I like the separate but tied look better. Ok 100 it is!

That sounds really cute! I have to agree... I hate my handwriting so anything that can be printed in cute font is a plus. Can't wait to see pics of how they turn out.

Mind if I ask where you are getting them from? I can't seem to find a website with uniform, reasonably priced sanddollars...

Qualityshells.com (seemed to be the cheapest legit site, with cheaper rates for 100+ and 5% off your first order.

So, wait. How are you tying the names to them? I love the idea of sand dollars, but I don't want to write on them, and given that they are round(ish), couldn't figure out how to tie something to them. Share your wisdom!!

Uh oh - I already ordered them. Although I'm having 97 adults, some of them are couples (though so many people are coming w/o sig others!), so I am only needing 70 placecards for the adults, and maybe 9 for the kids? Or maybe I can do kids of the same family together, so 6 for the kids = 76?

 

My plan for tying the card to the sand dollar - the sand dollars have little sliver holes in them and you slide a piece of ribbon through it, then hole punch a small placecard size card and put the ribbon through that and tie it. Hopefully it'll work! I have to figure out what to do though because the sand dollar is white so a white place card would be kinda boring, but you can't really print on dark brown and I haven't found a good turquoise or aqua paper. Maybe I'll print on labels and put them on dark brown paper stock.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
