      If you are able to get a blue one and are willing to lend out, would you please let me know? I am getting married Dec 31 in Jamaica. I promise I will take good care of your starfish :)

          I would be happy to lend it out if I could find one. I have had no luck. I have found white, yellow, and pick. But no Blue! I have checked ebay and contacted one person but they do not do blue. If anyone can tell me where to find one that wold be awesome. Thanks

            The starfish is being passed around to take care of the "...something borrowed, something blue"[

              This is such a great idea. I don't know why I never thought of it before.

                Okay, either I missed something along the way or I just can't find it....could someone explain this tradition? I get bits and pieces of it I think....there are multiple starfish going to DW with brides......"she" (the starfish??) sends postcards to the next bride she is being passed to What does she look like? How big? Does she "rest" in the bride's bouquet?

                  I really love this idea and I am having a really hard time with the something borrowed. I am getting married Jan 5th (leaving Toronto on the 3rd back on the 17th) If there is one available in this time frame I would LOVE it. Thanks girls, let me know...

                    9) ebredhawk- April 28- Dreams Punta Cana

                    Unfortunately we only have one starfish right now and he's white! Lisa posted a pic of him in her bouquet on page 5.

                    Some of you have mentioned your confused. The starfish is being passed around first come first serve. He has a journal w/ him to document where he has gone and done. Its a fun thing for the BDW girls and also covers a something borrowed! When the bride comes home she sends him to the next girl.

                    If someone had one they were ok w/ sending around that would be really great. Just cause he's in such high demand and we have alot of overlapping of dates.

                    Some of you were looking for a blue one, here is one i found: Starfish Bouquet Jewelry - 3 colors

                    imppearl- the 3 girls at the end of Dec and beginning of Jan are really close together and having friends/family send him so its a tight squeeze. Maybe we can get another one going soon.
