    we looked at the website with the aqua beaded curtain, but how many would you need to buy?
    Has anyone seen it cheaper elsewhere? $70 is kinda pricey. thx!

      that website has "faux" capiz shells in white which I think would be nice, (and cheaper).

        If any ladies want to split an order and I will ship them after my wedding it would be great... let me know.

        Thanks!

          bsf, we ended up buying 2. We're gonna keep 1 and give the other to FI's brother, but yeah, they are pricey. Maybe you should contact the wedding coordinator at your site & ask how wide the chuppah is & whether they'd be willing to attach something like this to the back of it.

          Not sure if anyone is using yellow/orange in their wedding colors, but I found this one for $27

          here's another option for $38

          If anyone's interesting in making their own, you can buy the shells & then use fishing line to string them together. This seller on ebay has a bunch of capiz shells for sale; these ones have the holes pre-drilled:

            Thank you Wendy! They are cheaper.

            ***If I wanted to mix the colors, could I remove some strands to mix the colors?
            so that its like aqua, white, aqua, white, etc..
            This way, I dont have to go all white or all aqua. If not, I am not sure which color to choose! lol

            thx again guys!

                I love the shells look too! But think I spent too much on the OOT bags fo this to happen. Oh well, it does look beautiful though! Good luck ladies!! :)

                  LOVE the idea of using capiz shells! We thought about using orchid garland to hang on the back of the chuppah and got a quote from a real touch florist...and the quote was over $500 for 15 strands!!! I could never justify that and I think the capiz might even be prettier!
                  I wonder if you could remove the strands from the wooden bar and have the resort hang them individually. It might be easier to transport that way but I'm not sure if it's practical.

                    I'd love to have something with color - this one might be a bit bright for me, but I love the idea
