Ouch, the cost of buying or renting wedding decorations can be overwhelming. Many couples spend a small fortune on wedding decorations.
We have chosen to include the use of our wedding decorations in our wedding packages here at The Barn at Lacey Farms. However, if you are not fortunate enough to have a venue that supplies decorations, here are some suggestions on money saving ways to purchase decorations for your wedding.
One of our favorite sources to buy new items is Hobby Lobby. Every other week Hobby Lobby has their decorations on sale for 50% off so shop for your decorations on 50% off weeks. If you are shopping for items like lanterns that you need multiples of, you might have to do that in multiple weeks or go to multiple stores because they usually will only have a few in stock. You can also order online during the 50% off week for large numbers and have them shipped to you.
Another source for buying used items is Facebook. Facebook Marketplace is one, simply search for "wedding decorations for sale" and you can filter the distance from your location and minimum and maximum prices. Just about everything you can imagine will pop up.
Facebook groups like Bride to Bride are a great source as well. Many newly married brides are selling their decorations on these groups. Do a search for wedding groups on Facebook to find groups in your area and join the group. Once you are a member of the group you may search the group for wedding decorations for sale.
Happy wedding decoration shopping!
