Dollar Store Deals for Wedding Planning – Part 1

Buying all of the goods for your upcoming wedding can be a drag – especially if your budget is tight. Luckily, dollar stores are packed with tons of materials you can transform into beautiful centerpieces, favors, decorations and more! In Dollar Store Deals for Wedding Planning – Part 1, we explained how you can find beautiful candles, vases, ribbons, and favor boxes at most dollar stores. We’ve found so many great ideas and suggestions on the internet, we just had to write a second part to this blog! Here are a few more ideas for all of you DIY-willing brides and grooms:

DIY Wedding Decorations

Tiered Display Stands

One popular wedding trend is the dessert bar. Of course, how you display your delicious treats is just as important as what’s being offered. We found a great tutorial on creating colorful, tiered trays for displaying desserts or even favors. All you need are a few silver trays, some candlesticks, superglue and spray paint. You can buy most of the materials at the dollar store, but you’ll probably need to head to a hardware or craft store to buy the spray paint. Simply paint the trays and candlesticks any color, superglue the trays to the candlesticks, and voila!

Keep in mind that you can transform just about anything you find at the dollar store with spray paint. Jars, apothecary bottles, old perfume bottles and more are inexpensive ways to add a gorgeous touch!

Beaded Chandelier

The Dollar Store Craft blog features an awesome beaded chandelier made completely with dollar store finds. It’s made with a hanging wire basket, Mardi-Gras style beads, floral wire, spray paint, wire cutters, and a hot glue gun. This fantastic blog outlines what you need to do to create your very own chandelier. It costs as little as $9 to create and can be finished in an afternoon.


There isn’t much that signifies party time quite like some balloons! You can find a lot of balloons at dollar stores in several colors. You can always buy an inexpensive small helium tank from your party supply store or ask them to fill the balloons for you. The venue you’re working with might even have a helium tank you could borrow.

What else can I find?

The truth is all dollar stores are different. Every now and then, just walk around the store and see what you find. They will have certain items seasonally just like every other store, so keep in mind their inventory changes. Aside from the things mentioned in our two-part blog, you can also find paper goods, napkins, dishes, picture frames, craft supplies, candies and maybe even some artificial flowers. Your guests will love the gorgeous decorations and favors, and you’ll be pleased to know you didn’t spend a fortune in the process!

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
