When you think of Dollar Tree do you think of wedding? More than likely not. I’m going to show you some great things you can get for your wedding in order to save a lot of money.
Whether you are a bride on budget or you are doing a DIY wedding, definitely check out the list I’ve put together.
The Dollar Tree has a nice section for weddings in the store and they have even more if you go to their website. They have wedding ideas on their website also, from wedding favors to chair decorations. Another great thing about the website is it is free shipping to the store so you don’t have to worry about the shipping costs. We all know that with a lot of companies the shipping cost is where they really stick it to you.
I’m going to just cover the website items because every store is different and they may not carry the same items in every store. At least with the website you know that you will be able to order the items no matter what your store carries.
In another blog post I'll go over wedding ideas that you can create expensive looking decor, favor boxes, tablescapes, and more!
If you click on the title of each section below it will take you to that exact section on Dollar Tree's website.
There are so many options that I could not possibly list all of the selections Dollar Tree has for serving trays and other trays. But I will list some of the most common kind. They have nickel plated, silver plastic, and translucent. If the colors nickel or silver isn’t what you are wanting, you can always purchase the translucent ones and spray paint them the color of your choice. Of course these serving trays aren’t the most durable but they will only be used one night and as long as they can survive one night then you should be good.
The selection of vases are HUGE! Not only are there lots of shapes and sizes but there are different colors and materials. They have the traditional glass and plastic vases. But the also have metal vases that are really cute! The website has many great ideas for different uses for the vases.
There are lots of glasses to choose from. They have tumblers and coolers, wine and champagne glasses, bar ware and cocktail glasses, beer mugs and pilsners, and plastic drink ware. There are many different looks depending on the theme of your wedding. These glasses can be used for drinking or you be creative and design your own centerpieces.
The only material they have for table covers are plastic which if you have ever priced the actual cloth table covers for a wedding then you know that going with the plastic table covers will be saving you so much money! Dollar Tree in the store and on the website have a wide array of colors. They also have plastic table covers for all sizes of the most common tables. The great thing about plastic table covers is that once the night is over you can just throw them away and be done with the them. They have the Plastic Table Cover Clamps(seen below) which can come in really handy. The only cloth table cover related item they have are Polyester Damask Table Runners. Unfortunately they don't have plain ones, as these have the damask pattern. They may work just fine for your wedding but then you have those REALLY picky brides.
Flowers & Floral Arrangements
I know that I have said that there are so many choices for all the items above but when it comes to their floral selection there truly are lots of choices. They have most types of flowers in a wide range of colors. They also have a pretty good selection of greenery to choose from. If you plan on doing centerpieces that incorporate flowers, they have most if not everything you need to make them.
Along with everything else, Dollar Tree has lots of candles to choose from. There are lots of different types including pillar candles, tea light candles, and taper candles in lots of different colors. Personally, I prefer the LED lights over real candles for a few different reasons. One of the reasons is you don't have to worry about a candle possibly getting knocked over and starting a fire. Another reason is you don't have to worry about the candle staying lit. Dollar Tree has pillar candles, tea lights, and taper candles in LED. Dollar Tree also has the decor to display your candles. Some of the displays are the pedestal candleholders, glass mirror candleholders, and the hurricane candleholders. You can get fancy and put the colored glass marbles in with them.
Some other items Dollar Tree has that I won't go into detail about are:
And the list really can go on and on. You can easily go to the Dollar Tree website and in the search bar type wedding and it will come up with pages and pages of items for you to use for a DIY wedding or to simply save money.
