Ohh awesome! Just an FYI the raffia is a pain in the BUTT to work with!! We're still not 100% certain how to stick the starfish onto the raffia. As of right now were using hot glue but im not sure its gonna hold sad.gif If you have any suggestions, please tell me!

Island Bride:


I ended up ordering a while back and have been SO busy with this particular rotation I am on (am in last year of med school) combined with boards the match finding a place to live that I completely have done NOTHING for my wedding. *looks at a calendar in dismay* I have to get my @$$ in gear though, these bags have to be finished by May 14th! I'm done with my rotations then, and there will not be time to assemble and ship during moving and graduation. I just need a moment to let out a scream hissyfit.gif , everything is all of sudden going way too fast. LMAO


Anyway, I was originally going to put the little starfish alone on the fans, but then thought of how cute a sand dollar would be, and THEN how cute a sand dollar and a tiny starfish over it would be. I swear, I don't know WTF I was thinking- but I'm hoping it all works out. lol


my plan is to use craft wire (the reallllly thin kind) in the ribbon wrapped around the handle and a bit of glue to hold it all in place. Basically, craft wire through the holes on the sand dollar and that's around the handle, with a dot of glue, then the ribbon to cover (or maybe the wire is on top of the ribbon but covered by the wrapping of said ribbon- you get the idea) and the starfish will most likely be glued to the sand dollar. Maybe it will be suspended from the holes with ribbon or such. I'll have to sit down and play with it to figure out how I want to do it.


At this rate, I just need to find the place I'm ordering my fans from- and then I can start the undertaking of putting together these darn bags....

Staceysbride-Im actually using those mini starfish to do what you wanna do with the sand dollars! Ive been ordering so much lately that I cant keep up with it all anymore, but I know I got the shells less than a week after I ordered them and I want to say there shipping was really cheap! I'll have to go find my receipt for you to clear that up. I'm still so stoked on how lucky I got with them being so perfect! When checking out enter "seashells" in the coupon code box and it gives you like 5% off your whole order.

Staceysbride- Oh wow girl! You got alot on your plate! I'm really backed up too and I dont work and Im out of school! So I can only imagine what you are going thru! The starfish on the sand dollar is cute! I would definitly think glue would work to stick the starfish on the sand dollar. I would say make sure its really strong glue so you dont have any oopsy's! If your really stressed for time maybe just do every other one starfish and every other sand dollar instead of combining them both cuz that could turn out to be alot of work pending on how many guests you have. I'll be having more than 100 guests so that's way too much work for me haha. Well I wish you luck on everything!! Wish I could help you out in some way! I still dont even have everyone booked for my own wedding yet sad.gif tsk tsk.

This is an awesome site. I intend on using in when I get a little closer to the wedding. I plan on putting a starfish on every plate. At first I was going to do to fans, but I was told those wouldn't be the best for the men. I think starfish will help work as a great.

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
