The Ben Franklin Crafts store in Yorktown, VA carries a huge assortment of floral arrangement craft items. I was looking for burgundy ribbon to cover the base of my bouquets, my centerpieces, and the mistletoe hangers. I looked at a few craft stores but their ribbon was all either expensive or the wrong color. At Ben Franklin Crafts I found the right color, in a large amount on a spool, that was affordable because it was floral ribbon instead of sewing type ribbon. Perfect!
I needed long white fabric as well as some lace for decorating my wedding reception. Rather than purchasing bolt fabric, I got smart and purchased clearance window treatments. I found 96 inch white sheer window valances for only $7 each. Plus I found lace window curtains that I used for table clothes. Even better I found a coupon code online which saved me plenty on shipping. I highly recommend going this route to save some money on the decor.
My engagement ring and wedding band were both purchased at the Zales outlet store in Williamsburg, VA (Prime Outlets). The service was fantastic and the ring selection provided exactly what I was looking for. They even provided custom sizing for free which was especially important since I'm a size 4, not a typical ring size. The prices were unbelieveable (yes, it was around $600 for both rings... granted I chose carefully... plus the purchase of the lifetime warranty on both) so my now husband didn't have to spend very much to get me exactly what I wanted.

We looked in stores, but we couldn't find a 5mm white gold milgrain band, so I got online and found GoldenMine.com. They had exactly the style of ring my fiance wanted, plus a great price, a lifetime warranty on the particular ring I purchased, and the shipping was quick.

We went the easy route, we sent out photo postcards for our wedding invitations. I was pleased with VistaPrint all the way around. The prices are unbeatable, the quality of the photo postcards was more than adequate (not quite professional photo quality but close enough for the price), and even though I chose the slow shipping it came in just a week and a half.
This was the only place anywhere that I could find mistletoe in October. They had it in stock, affordably priced at $5 per piece, and it was a lovely product that looks like the real deal. It made our late Novemeber wedding reception a romantic holiday inspired event.
I purchased my engraved cake cutting and server set from this website. It turned out beautifully, was very affordable (WAY cheaper than Things Remembered), and the shipping was quick. The price included engraving!
I ordered the heart shaped cookie cutters for the favors for my wedding reception. They were affordable and cute. Plus, they came each in a plastic box with a white bow. All I had to do was add a little thank you card to each and I was done! The cookie cutters are a littl more flimsy than I expected, but other than that I loved them. My guests loved them too.
I found the most beautiful calla lilly and tiger lilly artificial bouquet on their website. Best of the total price including shipping was $11. I received the bouquet and it was even prettier in person. In my wedding photos the bouquet looks real! I highly recommend this company and their products.
Terrible! I looked all over the place to find misteltoe and found it on this website. I ordered it along with a small flower bouquet, since I was paying shipping on the mistletoe anyway I figured I'd bundle it together. When I received my order, I got one small box. Inside was a large white flower, not the bouquet I ordered. Even worse, I checked the receipt and it was for the bouquet and the shipping, but the mistletoe wasn't listed. I called the company and turns out the mistletoe was OUT OF STOCK! They had it for sale on the website but in reality it was out of stock and they had no idea when they'd get it in. And to make things worse, they sent me the wrong item for the bouquet, the bouquet I wouldn't have ordered if I knew the mistletoe was out of stock. So I sent back the one flower and insisted on a refund including shipping charges. I got it, but I did lose out on the money to send the flower back. It was a huge nussiance overall and I recommend avoiding this retailer.
