    Hi there - I've noticed a lot of brides with starfish decor at the ceremony or reception. I've found some here at Michael's but they're $6.95 CDN each which is a ridiculous price! Does anyone know if there's a place in Cabo to buy starfish for the table displays? It would save room in my suitcase too if I don't have to bubblewrap and pack them. I need about 20 more for the tables. Anyone familiar with somewhere in Cabo that carries them?

      I found small bags for $1 yesterday at Michael's in their $1 area. If you can't find any reasonable ones you might check those out again

        There is a small shop in the mall in Cabo that sell shells (that's a tongue twister :) ). I can't remember the name but I know that it's in the same wing as Versace...Sad that I remember that isn't it. I bought the shells that I have in my display there. They have lots of variety. Oh...and there's always Walmart.

            Excited and a bit stressed. The closer I get to the date the more I find that I haven't done!

              oriental trading company sells starfish...you get 30 in a package for 4.99. They range in size with 2" being the largest.

                Yes, I wanted the white finger starfish. My planners said it would be easier to find them in the states, to get exactly what you like. They are pretty expensive, I think the big ones were like 3.99 per starfish. So I found smaller ones on e-bay and ordered them. It would be great if you find them in Mexico, but you may not want that stress when you get there. Good luck.

                  i found some starfish at a store called Clair De Lune. I think there were 6 in a pack for $8.99 plus they had buy one get one half price!! Pretty good. Not the big white ones, they were medium size. Decorative Candles | Aromatic Lamps | Home Fragrance | Clair de Lune

                    I saw the ones in Michaels's and thought they were too expensive too especially when you need a few!! The ones I got don't look like them

                      The flower shop I am dealing with in Cabo was willing to "rent" them to me for the evening for $3/starfish, but I actually ended up buying a bunch from a bride in the buy/sell section of this website for a great price!! Thanks for all the tips!
