WOW - I just priced an order thru Oriental Trading for starfish - my total order was $16.99 - they were going to charge $25.00 for shipping. sad.gif

 

Bummer, I can't find anything in Canada.

I really only needed about 10 of these, but I was keeping the thought in the back of my head that what if I only got lucky the first time I ordered from them and there not always that perfect. I was wrong.. again! These do have a tiny bit of an odor to them though. I just cut the bags open and stuck em in my garage and they're already smelling better!

PVBride2010-sorry to hear that sad.gif I was really worried about that too. Read the reviews on oriental trading companys shells and everyone complained of them stinking really bad. The ones I got from this place do not have an odor at all and there is 100 of them in each bag.

 

Negrilbridetoo- All the shells I saw at Wal Mart and the local craft stores had been picked thru and only the broken ones were left. I got desperate and decided to take my chances ordering off the internet.

 

Indy_chic-Im not sure how much shipping would cost you from this place, but I know they are located in Florida. My shipping was about $8 and I live in Florida.

This is exactly what I was looking for. My brother travels to the US for work so I'm going to have these shipped to his workplace. He's gonna hate me ... but whatever ....

Jeninesmom- I actually bought my curly raffia at our local craft store, Hobby Lobby.

 

Sunandsand- You truly will not regret ordering from this place. They rock!

 

Here is a picture of my practice one:

This place is awesome! I just placed my order today and I can't wait to get everything in! We're having a very small wedding so I didn't need as much as others, but still, can't wait! AND, very reasonably priced :)

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
