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,

Brooke

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.

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 voilà! :) I bet it's harder than it sounds.

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.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
