    So, I was just thinking about the Starfish Pins that we are using in our bouquets.

    I am going to use a champagne colored pin in my bouquet. But I really like the idea of the pins and was thinking about adding a clear crystal starfish pin to each of my BM bouquets.

    Do you think it changes the significance if I do that? I know most of us ladies have only used it in the Bridal Bouquet. I don't want to detract from my bouquet by adding the starfish to the BM bouquets ... but I am having an invory rose bouquet and they have colorful bouquets. I was thinking then they could keep their starfish pin afterwards.

    Any thoughts?

      I think that's a lovely idea. It won't detract from the meaning at all...actually I'm not sure if there is a meaning other than it being festive and yours being passed from one bride to the next on BDW. I say go for it!

        lol. I was thinking it really was only significant to us BDW ladies, anyway! Everyone esle will probably just ooh and aah over what a unique idea it is. hehe. That's what's happened so far with every idea I've gotten from this board! I LOVE it!!!

          I had a starfish put in mine and added dragonfly pins to my BMs. I thought they were really cute and the girls could have them for a keepsake.

            How much did she charge for these? I've found them online, so if the prices are the same, I may just get them from her too.

            But I think I like the palm tree for my MOH and flip-flops for my BM's. Makes it a little more fun (like your dragonflies for the BM's).

              I love the palm tree one. I was contemplating ordering it for myself, but I'm not sure if it will go. I don't even know what type of bouquet I am going to get at this point so I have time to figure it out. I think the flip-flops would be a cute idea, but I also don't think it would be bad if you had starfish in all the bouquets. My friend had these swarovski crystal sticks in all the bouquets including hers. I think they looked beautiful.

                ok I finally found the price for these - she charged me $11 for each. I thought that was pretty decent and easier to just get them from her.

                  I bought aqua starfish pins for all of my girls and one for myself along with a "D" for my bouquet. Nobody noticed and nobody commented. One of the starfish was lost throughout the night.. oh well.. hopefully the pictures look nice. I plan on breaking off the stem and using one in my shadow box.

                  I thought the idea of the BDW starfish was great but didn't want the extra stress of getting it to the next bride on time.

                  $11 is a great price. I got mine for about the same or a little less, but they were on sale because they were discontinued..they're usually much more.

                    That's a great price. The ones I found (made from the same company "Bouquet Jewels") are $11.99 per starfish, $14.99 for flip-flops and $16.99 per palm tree.

                    So, it does sound easier to just have her do it!

                      Tami - I don't think that detracts from your bouquet at all and I think it would make great pictures!
