    Here's the funny thing, they are not real touch.  I got them at Hobby Lobby in the wedding section and I think they are plastic but soft.  They were only $0.99 so the whole thing cost me under $2 where the resort was going to charge me something like $10.  I get 2 real ones included in my package so the FI may wear a real one, but I don't trust these boys not the be rough with them and flowers are fragile, so I figured these are a safe backup as well.  It was fun making them. I have always wanted callas incorporated in my wedding but wasn't sure if this would be an option once I got down there, so I figured for 99 cents it was worth getting.

    Kitty your bouts look amazing, where did you buy your callas from? They are so realistic!

      Greys, something you may be interested in is the ring I got for my FI, we found it while vacationing in Hawaii in December, it's a koa wood titanium ring. FI also didn't want anything flashy and this was very unique and very "Hawaii" since they only make them there. But you can order them online, or even buy once you get there. I'm not on my computer right now to show you a pic, but just do a quick search in google for "koa titanium ring" and you'll find it. We paid $150 at a gift shop in Waikiki, but I think it's slightly more expensive online (plus shipping)

                  Thanks!! My second fitting is scheduled for the 28th and it will have no straps, so I'll be sure to take pics and share then! It looks way different on me than on the model. I'm way shorter and have some booty which totally changes the look of it.

                      Oh and I pulled off the flower and made it smaller and changed the rhinestones in the middle out for pearls. Which I am still looking for by the way. Hey you ladies are amazing at this stuff... any thoughts as to where I could get a pearl cluster brooch? I just want pearls, no rhinestones.
