How Much Did These Flowers Cost?

If you know me at all, you know that I am a fan of saving money and good deals.  I will go out of my way to make sure I have the best price, much to the dismay of my husband who has learned to not get too embarrassed when I whip out my coupons.

However, a friend of mine recently showed me that I could still go further…dollar tree where have you been all my life?

My friend is getting married in September and she told me that she bought all her flowers at the dollar store.  Now, I’m thinking the worst and wondering how pretty can these fake flowers from a dollar store be (sorry Lisa).  Well- did she prove my thoughts wrong.



I had to see this for myself, and was pleasantly surprised.  She was able to create the bouquets, decor for ceremony and reception, centerpieces, and boutonnieres- all for under $250.  Amazing.  Even better, you can buy the vases, gem stones, wire cutters, flower tape, and ribbon- all for a buck!  Compared to the national average spent on flowers in a wedding, which is $1100 (and  I have seen up to $5000), it’s a darn good deal.

Of course I had to stop by the dollar tree to see this for myself.  Sure enough the flowers were there and in a variety of colors and color schemes!  Vases- check.  Gem stones- check.  Wire cutter- check.  Flower tape- check.  Ribbon- check check check.  So, now the dollar tree may just be my favorite store…

Not just for the flowers though…they have books for a dollar!  And binders!  And gift bags (personally, I have trouble spending $3.99 for a gift bag)!  And picture frames (this I am saving for another post)!

So, if you like DIY projects, you don’t mind fake flowers, and you want to save some major cash, check out the dollar tree for your flower needs.

I will give an update in September of these flowers in action…:).
