Looking into reception decor…does anyone have recent experience with online wholesalers…specifically Koyal, Afloral, Save-On Crafts. I see lots of mixed reviews…and it seems that shipping costs eat away at the savings. Specifically looking for deals on votive holders and vases… thanks for any help! I’m making myself a little nuts.

Do a search on http://www.searchtempest.com
Many brides sell their decor after the wedding. This site lists all ads on all Craigslist sites.If you search with your zipcode, you can minimize or even eliminate shipping costs.
It depends on what you are looking for and what style, but you can get some great buys.
Remember to check out your local dollar stores. At Dollartree you can order online by the caselot and pick up at your local store.

I am DIYing a lot of my decor for budget reasons.
I just priced out glass vases from the Dollar Store which you can buy by the case, at cost for $12. I will be doing a striped spray paint look. They have tons of shapes and sizes. This is the one I am using :https://www.dollartree.com/household/floral/vases-bowls-containers/Crystal-Cylinder-Vase/500c559c543p9889/index.pro
I am planning on buying my greenery and some hydrangea from http://www.fiftyflowers.com/ for inside decor but I am buying my bouquets and bridal party flowers from http://www.flowermoxie.com/ I am also making lots of paper flowers to supplement.
Saving money is time consuming. Luckily I have that! Good luck and let me know if you need any more details!

Dollar tree! You can either go to your store or order by bulk online! I haven’t found vases, even used ones, less than $1 a piece, and they seem pretty nice! As for other stuff, I’ve looked at those websites as well, but just couldn’t up the courage to purchase anything. We are on a tight budget, and I really don’t want to buy something and either not get it or it not be right and then have to spend even more money! Type in “wedding resale” on google and give some of those websites a try. Also, I’ve used Amazon and EBay a lot too. You have to read reviews on the seller, but most things are fine! I hope you find what you are looking for!
