This project was a "i'll figure it out as i go" kind of project. I'll have to take pictures when I do the rest. Just waiting for the feeling to come back to my fingers! LOL! J/K.. I'll make sure to post a tutorial..

I was thinking about doing a shell bouquet... I don't think i have enough time to try and figure it out on my own, i have a list of other DIY projects to do.. I searched on etsy.com for shell bouquet's.. pretty reasonable prices for what it is. But, i may just stick to real touch flowers.

I love how personal they are! Love the colors and uniqueness. Are they matching your bouquet in any way?

They look fantastic! You did a great job on them :) If shell bouquets are not feasible, think about doing a real touch bouquet with shell accents

I want to say they ended up being about less than $5 each.. It's hard to calculate because i had extra stuff laying around that i didn't have to buy for this project. The feathers were really cheap, a package of approx 25 feathers was $2.00. I got them from Wal-Mart. The ribbon I had for my other DIY wedding projects. The bag of shells I purchased from Michael's with a 40% off coupon=$8 total for shells. The brooch pins was $2.49 for a total of 25. And glue for my hot glue gun.. LOTS AND LOTS OF GLUE. I'll try and finish up the rest of them soon.

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
