Oyster Shells - A Great Wedding Decoration?

Indeed they are.  Rachel and I were married on June 28, 2008, at the Coonamessett Inn on Cape Cod, MA. The planning started about a year in advance. Eventually we secured the location, band, photographer, officiant, cake, dress and of course a raw bar. Leading up to the wedding we were shucking oysters at home once or twice a week. Sometimes for dinner, sometimes for a snack or appetizer and often with friends. It's during this time we had a great idea!

 We decided to save the shells to use at the wedding. After we ate oysters, we would wash the shells and then put them through a cycle in the dishwasher. Rachel would then keep the "pretty" shells for us to use. We decided we would need 200 shells to place on tables at the wedding. I was so excited. I knew we would be eating at least 250 oysters at home during the next seven months. We accomplished our goal with plenty of time to spare. The shells looked great at the wedding added to our special day. ...
