Hey Ladies,

 

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).

 

Chalkboard Signs

 

 

 

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.

 

to be continued........

Thanks for sharing! I like the idea of the small plastic baggies! I bet it would save money to buy a big bottle of medicine and put it in each bag! Thanks again!

    No problem... I have looked at buying the individual packages that contain 2 or so pills.... they are so much more than if you just do it this way :) Your welcome!

      Hey Kay,

      Have you already received the bags? I was looking at ordering some then started thinking about the DIY label. The bag seems so small I have no clue how to make the label. I'd like to do one for each type of medicine. Have you made a template for your labels yet?

      Do you think something like these labels would be too big to stick on the bags? (I got these from other brides on these boards)
