wholesale info for Tri-state area ladies

Recommended Posts

So I had to meet my best friend at her job, which is on 28th and Park in the city. Since I had time to spaare I walked the wholesale area, which is located on 28th and Broadway. OMG they have everything and for so cheap. I mean I found Pashmina shawls for $30 a dozen silk flower petals $1.50 a box. I'm from NYC so I knew of this area but haven't been here in ages. I also have been scouring the internet for prices and deals on stuff I need for the wedding. My only problem has been that I'm a touchy feely consumer, meaning I like to examine the quality of what I'm getting before I purchase so this works for me. I wanted to pass this info along because there are a ton of shops so you have to make a day of it sort of. They are open on Saturdays. Also in the same area is the wholesale flower district, which also sells gorgeous silk flowers. Since I stumbled upon some of these stores I was looking more then buying, but here are some things I saw.

Parasols

Raffia Fans

Those little gauze goody bags in tons of colors

Pashmina Shawls in tons of colors- these you have to hit up a few stores for quality and price because they vary, but still real nice for giveaways

Flip flops and disposable cameras. I know I will go back with my mom on a Saturday when I have a lil more time to shop around.

That's really great to know! I'm upstate, NY but I have to go down to my jeweler who has to tighten my ring, he's in the diamond district, but I can make my way down there for the good deals!

 

Thanks! :)

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
