and by cheap I mean inexpensive. I dont need like super fancy, just pretty and light pink. I’ve been searching and searching the classifieds, but never find the color I want. And unless I have missed it- everything on Etsy is like kind of expensive or rather cheap looking.
Anybody here know of a good website?!?

You can try making them yourself, I think that will be the cheapest route. I made my own I followed tutorials from other bees

I thought about that too, all the flowers I have been finding are kind of expensive… 2-3 dollars a stem and thats at like half price at michaels!
hm. Maybe I should just check more often for them and see what I can find

I am making my own black, purple and white fabric pom balls. I got a circle cutter for 40% off, and my fabric for 2.50 a yead (still kind of expensive I think Walmart has fabric that is thick for 1.90), and six to 9 packs of foam balls for 5$.I made 10 balls so far so my guess is each ball costs about 5-7$ to make. The time is what gets this project. It takes anywhere from 1 hour to two hours to make a ball. I will be selling mine after my wedding for atleast 10$ a ball.
I decided against tissue becuase my wedding is so far away and I didn’t want them to crinkle. Plus finding purple or black tissue was a nightmare, I did find a 900 pack online though but it was 45$. I love the finished product of my fabric ones but I totally see why they are so expensive to buy.
I hope this helps! Pm me if you have any questions.

I lucked out and got bunches of mums at Dollar Tree last fall. Each bunch had about 12-15 flower heads and they were $1/bunch.
I looked everywhere for inexpensive pomanders. You may find some on Craigslist or in the Want Ads on bridal sites, but I think your best bet is to make them yourself.

Try dollar tree for the flowers, and if you do make your own, use a 4″ styrofoam ball – they come in 2 packs and are cheaper than the 5″ 🙂
I made tissue paper ones – bought my paper from papermart.com and styrofoam and ribbon with coupons and sales at Michaels/JoAnns/AC Moore. Time was the biggest investment with them.
As long as they don’t get too beat up at the wedding I’ll be trying to resell them.

This is the most inexpensive I’ve seen, but the pink is not pale
Koyal wholesale has less expensive but no pink
you could spray the white ones with a pale pink fabric dye

@julies1949: I hadn’t even thought of spraying them with a pale pink dye! Thats a good idea!

I’m making my own. I got all the supplies at Hobby Lobby and usually its all on sale for 50% off anyway. Super easy to make as well.
