        Honestly I'm not sure what the total cost was. I had bought shells in bulk here and there for decor for our AHR and I used the shells from that lot to make my bouquet. If I had to guess it would probably be around $30 - $35. It was $20 for the amount of shells used. Then the rest was less than $10.

          I've been looking for a reasonable site to buy shells in bulk. Where did you order them from??

              I was asked to post a bigger picture of my DIY shell bouquet so here it is. Hope this helps! It is still a work in progress.

                  So much creativity out there ladies!  It all looks so good!

                   

                  Here's my bouquet inspiration piece.  It's mainly Calla Lillis and Orchids.  I'm just waiting to hear back from the hotel to see if it's doable.  Fingers crossed!

                   

                  BTW this company has a lot of stunning flower pictures.  They're based out of Ontario and if I could take them to Mexico with me I would!  You can view their blog at: bouquet.jpg

                      regarding the stem leakage issues, I got married in Playa Del Carmen, and used the bouquet for 2 days (actual wedding and TTD), and no leakage from the stem.
