    I'm sure someone could. Me? I'm guessing not

    I'll just steal your idea and do this in the sand when we're in Mexico

      David's bridal sells off the rack. So, I brought mine home with me. I put it in the trunk, and they never asked me any questions :) So no I did not pay customs or duty, they don't care much about us girls who go shopping, we do it all the time. I found a seamstress here on reccomendations from friends and that is how I am getting alterations done.

        What I am looking for is a pin of coarse but I am having a hard time, so I assumed I would buy a bouquet jewel and make a pin out of it..

        YES I definately do want one, I require it for my dress..I have contacted a few vendors this morning that the girls from here recommended but I have not heard anything yet..

I received the items 2 days later. If you're interested I can send you her contact info.
          YES for sure, I would really appreciate this..I am in a bind And like I said earlier, the lady you first suggested, pulled a fast one on me, its been 2 weeks and I have been waiting for my delivery and she sent me an email yesterday saying there was a manufacturing problem..UGH, I was not pleased...She has now re-imbursed me, but I am still at point ZERO, with no starfish..Thanks I will await your contact information..

            And by the way, that's really crappy to wait 2 weeks to tell you she's out of stock! I get so mad at poor customer service.
            Well I was interested in the clear one of coarse..What is natural?

Anyways, shipping to Canada for the link Shelley posted is $8.50 which is a great deal IMO. I wanted a clear one which they didn't have in stock. She told me they would get it in in a week though. This was only a week and a half ago so I don't have it yet. I can let you know when I do though so you can figure out how long it takes. Also, they may have had other colors in stock.

                I am obsessed with Bouquet Jewels
                Well at least you covered yourself...haha..Is there a quicker way to contact them, as I really want this exact starfish for its shape and size..its the one that is being passed around this forum and its sooooooooooooo cute...Can you let me know how to order from them quicker? Thanks so much
