Hi Ladies!

 I believe DW doesn't need much decor, but still some details could be cute. I decided to do some DIY stuff and obviously went to Michaels. :D

From your experience does Michels have good prices? Can you compare it to Dollar store or any other stores? What have you DIY? 

 

P.S. Since my main color most likely will be coral, I didn't see many things in that color :((( Any advice?

Thank you!  :wub:

I am in Canada so I can't speak for prices in the USA or aboard, but Michaels can be fairly expensive.

But..... you shouldn't shop at Michaels and pay full price!  Sign up for their app or on their webpage and weekly they will send you coupons. There is always 30-50% off one regular priced item coupons and then from time to time you can get anywhere from 10-30% off your entire order (I've seen it as high as 50% but that was only once over a holiday).  I never pay full price there!!!

 

The dollar store would be cheaper. Depending what you are looking for the quality would suit your DIY just fine, other times the dollar stores can have lesser quality so just depends what it is. 

 

I DIY almost everything - invites, all my favors, seating charts, decor, etc.  You can check out my pages below!

@@calgarybride2015 is totally right! I've also looked at a couple of things and discovered that the exact same thing is cheaper in Walmart. Then I got a real shock and went across the border to the US!! I had to buy replacement blades for a cutter. They were 11.99 here at Michaels. I went across the border to Hobby Lobby in Pennsylvania and they were 5.99!!! Now there is no way you can tell me that's just the exchange on the dollar! So there are definitely options depending on where you live. If you're in the US absolutely check out Hobby Lobby. Good deals there for sure!!

Thank you ladies! Yes i'm from Canada too @@calgarybride2015 , but from Toronto. I found Michaels to be pricey. Quality matters, for sure, but i don't want to spend extra money on unnecessary things. Thanks for the app idea!

Michaels is definitely pricey, but like @@calgarybride2015 mentioned, it's best if you use their coupons. One of my main colours for my wedding is coral and I've purchased 90% of my decor from Michaels. To be honest I bought a lot more gold accent decor pieces and now that I think of it my actualy decor doesn't have much coral haha.

 

If you use the coupons it's definitely worth it because they have some really nice pieces sometimes :)

I agree with Calgarybride! There are some things at the dollar store but sometimes don't have much of a selection depending on what theme you're going with. 

 

However, I have never bought anything for full price at Michael's because it's so expensive, even if it takes me a few trips down there to get one item each time at 40%off. They do have a lot of nice things!

I've bought a lot at michaels but very little at full price. Like the other girls said, I use the 40% off coupons too. Sometimes it means making multiple trips but it's worth it for the savings.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
