Great post! I buy all of my gift wrap at dollar stores – they usually have some really cute stuff! For our wedding, we got frames there for our table numbers. They had plenty of cute vases too! Still, my favorite dollar store find to date was for my Relay for Life team. I found pedometers for 99 cents each! It was a fun (and relatively inexpensive) way to keep all 25 of us motivated!

Totally got frames for the cake table photos at the dollar store. But I should really write an ode to TJMaxx. LOTS of stationary finds there. Like ALL my thank you cards. All 200+ of them.

If you like the dollar store, but need many items and want an even better price break, try oriental trading (google it). Then request a catalog. Fun stuff.

FYI: if you don’t have a Dollar store near you…you can go to DollarTree.com…you can order things in bulk off of their website! They have vases, candles, favor bags/boxes, etc etc etc! I’m going to be ordering a few cases of vases and votives to help spice up the reception tables! 🙂
