winewithwedding :  Hobby Lobby, TJ Maxx, Target, At Home. Last year around this time, Target had tons of copper stuff in their $1-$5 section when you first walk in. 

We did copper decor and those were the place we found the most at. Also try amazon, we ended up finiding things there after we’d already found them somewhere in store (but some were cheaper on Amazon).

winewithwedding :  We also got a lot of random bigger copper pieces at thrift stores and antique stores.

Also, if possible, you can get the styles you want and spray paint them. For my wedding I did wine bottle centerpieces and pray painted them. It worked out really well. 🙂

I’ve seen some gorgeous copper items like this at a local thrift store. Made me wish my colors were copper too!

Aside from the usual stuff like copper vases and so on, I made these two things. Why buy when you can make!?

It cost about $40 for PVC pipes, PVC joiners and metallic spray paint. Lots of options for how to use it on the day like a photobooth, welcome sign, seating chart, backdrop for the bridal table..Because i made it with PVC we can also assemble it different ways. My inspiration from this post: https://www.weddingomania.com/how-to-add-copper-to-wedding/pictures/78933/

These are the favours I made with some help from other people. It cost about $80 for 50 favours including the test tubes (ebay), paper, string and printing (craft store) and tea (bought one from a tea shop and mixed in some tea flowers from the Asian store) to get the right mix of colours. You can incorporate the copper colour through the glitter tag.
