So I saw another lady on the knot ask this I now I’m wondering the same about my bees. Has any of you found any great things for your weddings at thrift stores? I found all my vases that will be my centerpieces at goodwill for around $20. A steal! Im about ready to go hit another goodwill up here in a min to find some more!

I’ve found a ton of candle holders. I’ve also started buying cut glass punch cups there to use for votives too.

I found a few nice glass containers for my candy buffet. I also found some vintage tea cups, which we’ll use for my English garden themed shower. Oh, and I found some milk glass budvases to add to my collection for my centerpieces

We have found a ton of old vintage picture frames that we’re going to paint for part of our centerpieces! We also found old costume jewelry that we’re tearing apart to make hair pins and bouquet glam out of!

I’ve found a bunch of different bowls and vases that I’ll use for our centerpieces at goodwill. I love thrift store finds! Our centerpieces will end up costing less than $10 each! 🙂

I haven’t been going to thrift stores, but I collected a bunch of vases through Freecycle. The Freecyclers have been great when the learn that I want to use them for my wedding. Some have been huge, but a couple are exactly what I’ve been looking for. All it cost was the price of gas to stop by these places. I think my mom will use the ones I don’t want to bring DIY floral arragements when she visits people in the hospital.

Ooh, my mom stumbled upon some vintage milk glass teacups the other day, that was a good find. And up until this weekend, I was constantly finding (And even bought) some hobnail vases. Turns out now I actually want to use them and, oh, right, they’re hard as crap to find!! Haha, but I will not give up! 🙂

@LaborofLove – I am using hobnail vases as my centerpieces! I would be totally willing to sell them to you after my wedding. I’ve been scouring thrift stores for MONTHS. I have 23, all like this:

I also have 4 like this (for the bridesmaids to put their bouquets in) and a bud vase for next to the cake that I’d be willing to part with.
