I found them at Walmart. My walmart sells them new for about 12 bucks a case- each case has 12 in it. Lots of times I find them even cheaper on sale at Walmart or Ace Hardware, if you have one of those.


 


OR I just found these and I may order them from here as well.

Because they have the cheaper jars I've found for my candy buffet! Its rediculous!


I spent way too much time stalking sites to buy used jars, but they go too quickly!


You can also find mason jars pretty cheap on Ebay or Amazon! And I HIGHLY suggest getting them new if you are planning on buying jars... not only are they usually the same price as used ones go for, but they sell WAY faster if you say "Only used once" or "Almost New!" when you post them.


HTH! Thanks for reading and for all the comments!

UPDATE: I found a website to get cheaper candles at: www.thecandledepot.com


Much cheaper site if you are looking for just white or ivory candles!

Wow, I really don't know what happened to the format of this article. It was so crisp and neat in Word, and on here its messy, the fonts changed, only one tip is highlighted in purple... there are so many things wrong. Maybe its just me that notices... Im OCD. LOL

I hate the word to website transfer sometimes.


Does that site also offer drip candles?  I want ones that drip really nicely, as part of the effect for my centerpieces!!


And brava on the article!

wow what a great article! You actually spent a lot of time on it, unlike the $10K wedding article I just read. This sounds like it was really a cute wedding.

This article really speaks to me, as I am trying to budget for my wedding and since we already have 2 year old twin girls, the money for the wedding seems secondary. This article really let me know that you can be totally responsible about spending and still get a lovely result!

Thank you so much for writing this! We seem to have very similar tastes and I love that you have a small budget! Our's is about the same ($4,000 or less). This truly inspired me and showed me that it really is possible to have a beautiful wedding on a small budget. Thank you!
