That's so cute - I want to get starfish jewellery for my BMs gifts - I'm in Canada so we don't have Macy's, but I will have to check out ESTY for sure!

Does anyone know the "meaning" behind the starfish? To be honest I was thinking that using Starfish at a beach wedding wouldn't be a unique idea. But when I was looking at the jewelry on etsy.com one of the sellers had a poem posted with a starfish necklace . It was titled "The Starfish Poem"...after reading I knew that I wanted to incorporate starfish somehow. Well I found my jewelry...starfish necklace, earrings, and bracelet (which by the way I was having the hardest time selecting) and I would have to say it was because of that poem. But I was just wondering if you ladies know something about the starfish that I might not know.

The Starfish Poem

Once upon a time there was a wise man

 

who used to go to the ocean to do his

 

writing. He had a habit of walking on the

 

beach before he began his work.

 

 

 

One day he was walking along the shore.

 

As he looked down the beach, he saw a

 

human figure moving like a dancer. He

 

smiled to himself to think of someone

 

who would dance to the day.

 

 

 

So he began to walk faster to catch up.

 

As he got closer, he saw that it was a

 

young man and the young man wasn't

 

dancing, but instead he was reaching

 

down to the shore, picking up something

 

and very gently throwing it into the ocean.

 

 

 

As he got closer he called out, "Good

 

morning! What are you doing?"

 

 

The young man paused, looked up and replied,

 

"Throwing starfish in the ocean."

 

 

 

"I guess I should have asked, why are you throwing starfish in the ocean?"

 

 

"The sun is up and the tide is going out. And if I don't throw them in they'll die."

 

 

"But, young man, don't you realize that there are miles and miles of beach and starfish all along it. You can't

 

possibly make a difference!"

 

 

The young man listened politely. Then bent down, picked up another starfish and threw it

 

into the ocean, past the breaking waves and said - "It made a difference for that one."

    • 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
