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!!

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.

    • I’m sorry but I just noticed this original post was from a few years ago. 
    • Hi girl, I was in the the exact same situation as you. I’ was a second timer too,  at the time my daughter was 16 when we had our DW. He also had a daughter from a previous marriage who was 28 at the time with a 3 year old son who we’re residing with us. His daughter was in no financial shape whatsoever to pay her way to Fiji. My husband said it meant so much to him for her to be there. We argued for months about us funding her way to go with us. I felt like the evil step mother too but put my foot down. It almost got to the point that we were just not going to go but finally my fi gave in and said we would  not pay for her. Talk about stress! We went with my daughter and a few friends and got married. I could see the sadness in my husbands eyes during the ceremony.It all hit me right there. He wanted his daughter there so bad that it crushed him. In fact none of his family were there and the friends I mentioned were all my friends. I thought to myself, why did I do this to this wonderful man who is so good to me and my daughter. He rarely asked for things for himself. I felt awful. He did his best to hide it from me. It’s the biggest regret of my life girl. He never got over that his daughter was not there and it destroyed me. I wish I could go back in time and do it all over again. I allowed $3,500 that we easily could afford, ruin what I wanted to be the happiest day of his life. If you can afford it pay for it, do it. It’s not worth the pain.It was  not worth doing that to him just to prove a point. This was 17 years ago and it bothered him for the rest of his life. He passed away last October and I still cannot forgive myself. That’s my two cents - Shel  
    • Hi everyone! Newbie here. I've been trying to search for templates for passport invitations. I saw a couple on Etsy but not many options. I was wondering if anybody knew of any other sites that have printable templates for passport invitations? Thanks in advance!
