I thought I would share my finds so far as I have found some pretty awesome deals and wouldn't want any of you to miss out on any. Feel free to add your finds as well and as i purchase I will update this thread!
Starfish Brooch Pin
I found this on Ebay for $11 Cdn. - It is exactly what I was looking for my bouquet!
Originally I purchased these to make a no mess aisle runner (Shout out to MIssBubbles for the great idea). But I have decided to use them on my dinner tables for the DW & AHR (all colours mixed) down the centre of each table instead of table runners. These petals are super easy to transport. Each plastic bag of petals contains 100 pieces.
I found them on Ebay for $4.30 Cdn. for 1,000 petals. I ordered 4,000 Blue - 4,000 Purple - 1,000 Cream (Which I think is WAY too many, but I may find more uses for them as a continue to plan). Wonderful product! TONS OF COLOURS AVAILABLE
I purchased these starfish charms off Ebay for $5.00 for 100 of them. I am using these for my invitations tied with purple raffia. I thought it was a great price for 100 of them!!
Again I found these on Ebay, for $8.70 for 1,000 of them. I am using these for my OOT bags for the different medications I am including. FI and I figure it was cheaper to purchase huge Advil, Pepto., ect bottles form costco than buying the individual packages. So we will use these baggies and then label each bag with a DIY label.
I purchased this shadow box picture frame from Michaels @ $14.99 used a 25% off coupon, so I paid $12.70 for it. I plan to make my own Sand Ceremony picture frame (there is a forum on BDW for this project). I couldn't bare spending 70+ dollars on one when I can make my own for under $20.
DIY Bouquets, bout.'s & Corsages
I purchased these wonderful White rose heads from Ebay for $30 for 60.. I ordered 120 of them for $60. They are silk flowers and exactly what I was looking for, they are just missing the flower steams. Which I have found at Michaels and they are easy to attach a steam for bouquets.
I purchased these blue Orchids from Save-On-Crafts.com for $24 for 30 of them. Again if steams are needed I can easily add them.
(CANADA BRIDES: Save-on-crafts does not ship to Canada; I got these shipped to a wonderful BDW bride in Boston and she kindly shipped them to me <3 She is my life saver!!!)
(But my roses are more real looking).
I bought these from Michaels in the wedding section (Brand: Wedding). I am using these for our engagement pictures this January when we visit out resort where we plan to marry. I am sure these will have some other uses for the wedding, as all we need to do is erase the chalk and write whatever we would like on them
These are $16.99/each --> They were on sale for $12.99 when I bought them so I couldn't use my 50% off coupon I had. But still a great item as they are reusable.
