     Nope, no adhesive or glue but you could, it certainly wouldn't hurt.  It was very windy the day of my wedding and I noticed afterwards that WC's did make an extra tie around the starfish with ribbon I had packed.

          The barefoot sandals I made for myself & maid of honor.

          The ceremony set up, I took everything with me except the real flowers and white fabric.  Shells were purchased from Winners & Ebay, Fans from Oriental Trading, white capiz chandelier off Kijiji and chair sashes from ebay.  The WC did exactly what I wanted with everything.

          The cake provided by the resort with my DIY cake boxes, I took some extra ribbon with me for them to use.

          The DIY napkin rings.

          Guest Table Set up, prior to being completed, still need the luminiaries and shells.

                Do you remember what seller or what you typed to find it? I need that dress?

                  My mom's dress came from seller rozannedee, its a Maggy London dress.  I found it by searching coral dresses, short, short sleeve, sleeveless.
