Dollerama Finds

Recommended Posts

I bought red table runners, opaque chinese take out boxes (I made lanterns out of these using the flameless battery operated tealights) chinese fans, wine bottle covers and even a little budha statue at Dollarama! My FI is Chinese and we are going with that theme and the gold and red colour scheme for the dinner table decorations.

So far I bought my tote bags, tissues, lense cleaner wipes and hand sanitizer. I've been going in every so often to see if they have anything for my centerpieces and vases for the sand for the sand ceremony. Can't remember who mentioned it but I did find a website that sold the Umbra frames for the sand ceremony that shipped to Canada. I think it was just under $40 including shipping. I love it!

Dollarama rules. We pretty much got all our OOT stuff from here. The 4 pack axe effect is awesome. We also found great picture frames we will use for our tables.

 

There are some similar stuff here that is found at Michaels but literally 10x cheaper. Very happy to have discovered Dollerama!

I love Dollarama! I always find so much good stuff there. Recently they've raised their prices...many things are now $1.25-2.00 instead of $1 but still, a lot of the items are still a better deal than buying from say, Zellers or Wal-Mart where they would be like $3-4 each.

 

Make sure you also check out the hair and makeup section! I think especially for destination weddings, hair clips and elastics would be useful for the female guests. You can usually find 3-4 clips or 20-30 elastics in a pack. Also, nail files!

Hey ladies, I went by dollarama today and saw a few other OOT bag potentials:

 

1) Small bottles of hand sanitizer gel on carabiners (those climbing clips)

 

2) Wine glass tags (for cocktail hour or reception?)

 

3) Fuzzy micro-fleece socks (for the plane ride there/back)

 

4) Small wooden pail about the size of a bowl with mimi brush, mirror, and loofa!

I have been hitting dollarama at lunch and slowly stocking up on stuff. I bought the lense clean wipes (like wetnaps for your glasses). Love them, now have a box of my own at my desk to clean my glasses. Bet they'd be great for cameras that end up with a drink or two splashed on them. I also got self laminating sheets, 8 for $1, making luggage tags all night!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
