Yep - I found everything at Michael's for less than $10. I dug through the bins of shells in order to find a large one that was in good shape.

 

I'm a little concerned about adding sand to the base of the shell - do you think that it will get inbetween the diamonds of my wedding band?

 

Another idea that I've been considering (I'm second guessing my shell) is to use a starfish (also sold at Michael's) and tie the ribbon at the centre. I think that I may have issues with customs if my bags get checked...

 

I like the pics that you have posted - you can select a shell to go with your wedding colors instead of trying to match ribbon colors.

I am using those fake rings you can buy at Michaels and other places for the shell. I don't want to risk them falling off or anything, because my 3 year old nephew is in charge of the shell! The best man will be holding the real rings.
