    I love all the vistaprint stuff.  I'm just not sure I have the patience to place that many orders, lol! :-)

      Thanks!!!  The canvas totes were from Vistaprint, and they look just as nice in person as the do on the website.  The canvas is nice and sturdy and they are a great size and I ordered the small, but the have two other sizes (but only the small is free).  If you use this link (vistaprint.com/winter2011)  you can get them for free (which includes personalization), you just have to order one at a time and pay for shipping.  Thankfully we have a small amount of guests traveling with us (16 in total), so we only had a total of 9 rooms on the cruise, so I ordered these for the women and nike sackpacks for the men.

        Thanks!!!  I know what you mean about the patience... Thankfully I started early and over a period of a few months I placed the orders. But we have a small group traveling with us on the cruise and I am making one bag per room, so I only had to place 9 or so orders.

        Everything is beautiful.  You did a great job.  My wedding is in September cruising to Montego Bay and the wedding will be on the beach at the Resort of Royal DeCameron.  How much was it to ship your wedding items over ? I am very interested in that part because I have so much stuff to travel with. Congratulations !

            I love the seashells and starfish...the colours look great!! And thats a great idea as MrsTgun suggested with turning it into a magnet favor.....all y'all are so talented.  Great DIY'n 

            Thanks everyone for the comments.  I am back with more...So I have been busy painting...painting and more painting :)  Only two more days before I have to ship everything to St. Thomas...

             

            Here are some sample shells that will be decorating the table

            Painted Shells.jpg

             

            I was going for silver, white and different shades of blue.  I based coated the shells and starfish with a Martha Stewart Pearl paint, and then use the Martha Stewart glitter paint on some of them so we had variety.

            I also purchased a clam shell at Hobby Lobby and painted it for a ring dish.  I wanted to soften the dark purple on the dish, so I used an acrylic pearl white color an mixed it with a little bit of a clear base coat to soften the color of the shell.  I had some extra ribbon and raffia and used the glue gun to secure everything with a pearl on the top!

            And last but not least..our sand dollar escort cards.  I had other intentions...like writing the 2012, and St. Thomas on the actual sand dollar so it could serve as an ornament, but it didn't work out so great with the pens I had (they bled and it looked terrible, thankfully I bought extra sand dollars just in case I screwed up), so I had to scrap the writing idea because of time and just went with making a name card for everyone and attaching it with ribbon.

              What type of order did you use from VistaPrint for your luggage tags where you could up load a different photo for each tag? Where did you get your star fish from?

                    Sorry for taking so long to get back on the thread!  Since St. Thomas is a US territory, the items were sent USPS and the rates were no different then shipping inside the continental US, so it was quite cheap about $40 for two heavy packages.  I shipped my items about 2 weeks in advance, and I wish I had sent them a little bit earlier b/c they took longer to get there then expected.  However, we were also getting to our wedding destination by cruise ship so we left a week before the wedding and my items had not yet arrived in St. Thomas by the time we got on the ship, so I was a little nervous that they had gotten lost.  But everything worked out and they made it there safely.
