    Has anyone made seashell bouquets for their bridesmaids? If so any helpful hints? I am planning to make them, just ordered all my shells today. I think they are so cute, cheaper and something that my girls can keep forever and is symbolic of our beach wedding.


    Thanks in advance,

      This sounds like a great idea and thoughtful for your BMs. Did you see a pic for inspirations? Im curious to know what would it look like

          If you find any tutorials, or helpful hints on line, I would love to know how to make these also. I have looked at quite a few on Etsy, and they are quite expensive, so I have thought of making them as well.

            Here are 2 projects with step by step pics:




            I find A LOT of inspirational material on Wedding Bee. Or simply google "DIY seashell bouquet" - tons of pics!


            Keep in mind that seashell bouquet can turn out to be rather heavy. Basically, you stick into the styrofoam ball anything you'd like to make a part of your bouquet. Then need to come up with a handle, wrap it in a satin ribbon and voil ! :) I bet it's harder than it sounds.

              I am not craft enough so had to order off Etsy. Love them but expensive!! (cheaper than flowers in Jamaica though!)

              I ordered half fake roses and some shells for the BMS and bouts. Still debating on if I should use real flowers for myself or not.

                There are lots of great ideas on Pinterest.  Check there for seashell bouquets.
