      Any luck Jenny? If all else fails, you can always use the starfish to chuck at that lady at work! HAHA LOL!!

        I have actually been thinking about ways to incorporate a starfish into the guys boutonniers but have only gotten as far as thinking about it. Maybe I will start playing a bit too, and I'll get my Mom to help since she is so creative it is sickening. Maybe with some of the ideas posted and a few of us working on some, we will find something that works well.

          Sure! Let me know when you get back! The starfish I have aren't that big at all either..

            Have got any further on the boutonniers yet Jenny? Here is what I finally did up with a sea shell, rose leafs, starfish and turquoise ribbon.

              Ewww. That pic didn't turn out so good. It looks good in the smaller icon. I guess I need some natural light to get it in focus properly.

                I really like the idea. I think the starfish would look better if it were smaller and on the stem/bling part of the flower. Good luck!

                  I know this is an old thread (over a year old), but incase other new brides are reading it, here is my inspiration. Don't know where I got the pic from. Maybe a Facebook Group?

                  Michael and Phil Steingard are located in Ontario, but travel to Punta Cana quite often during the year. There is a good chance they will be down already during your wedding week, so this will cut travel costs

                      I am just getting ready to work on the bout for my daughters wedding - she would like to use shells for the groomsmen and a starfish for the groom. Thanks for all the great ideas - you girls are so creative!
