    So...I have 32 days left till our wedding and am starting to freak out about this. I am making my own bouquet out of shells, kind of like this:
    Click the image to open in full size.

    Has anyone made one of these and has any pointers on doing it? I love it and I know it will happen just thought I would put it out there to see if anyone has tried yet.
    Thanks

              I have no idea about how to make it, but I posted about a shell bouquet months back and I think everyone convinced me it might snag on my dress or be really heavy to carry.....

              Are you concerned with that at all?

                Etsy :: creativebridal :: White Sea Shell Wedding Bridal Bouquet

                If you decide it's too much to take on yourself, you could probably get someone on etsy to make one for you... I came across this one for an example!

                      SWEEEEET! I'm totally doing that! :) maybe get a foam ball for the center and have a ton of small "filler" shells to fill in the gaps, you'll have to wire them and be gentle so it doesn't break!
