Was wondering if anyone has found a good, inexpensive, reliable site to purchase things for your ceremony and reception–from votive candles and vases to lanterns, ribbons, etc. I’ve seen a bunch but hard to know what’s really cheap junk vs. reasonably priced but nice.

I have used a variety of sources — I got all the glass vases for my centerpieces from dollartree.com (seriously!) as they are the same exact ones from a Michaels, A.C.Moore, but obviously much cheaper and they do free shipping to a local store.
Candles I got from Ikea, a 4 pack of 2×3 pillars were $1.99, can’t really beat that!
I also like Sav-on-Crafts, the Hobby Lobby and Jo-Ann’s websites as well.
That being said, I’ve also used Ebay for things like ribbon, and Etsy for more one-of-a-kind things. I’ve bought some things from pretty random obscure sites, as long as they accept Paypal I feel safe doing so, and so far (knock on wood!) I’ve had good success!

I ordered all my vases and votives from wholesalefloral.com. I thought they were of very decent quality and reasonably priced!

I second the save on crafts comment! I’ve started to collect some cool quality things from there. They have absolutely almost anything and everything and I feel like the prices are pretty decent when you compare to other sites (though you probably can’t beat dollartree); the only drawback is that their site is sort of hard to navigate.

For lanterns, I plan to order from here:
I’ve seen good reviews for it and the prices are pretty good 🙂

Oh, and for vases, I got crystal bowls off of amazon.com for less than $20 each. My florist is going to build up some height on them.
