I purchased a lot of paper to make my own invitations. Hollo's in Brunswick sell paper by the pound here, at very reasonable prices! They also have an "invitation station" where they have samples of wedding invites you can make yourself easily. And envelopes! A whole room full of different kinds of envelopes! Absolutely everything you need to make your invitations they have. I can't say enough good things about this place!

I purchased vases here to make my own centerpieces. I couldn't believe the prices, better than anywhere else; I looked online but the shipping was outrageous. I saw them at Jo-Ann's but the price even with a coupon wasn't as good as the regular price at Flower Factory, plus I got an extra volume discount which was like getting one vase free! Some of their stores you can't get into without a vendors license but some of them you can (they list them on their website). If you can get into one, definitely go check it out. They also have a lot of flowers, party supplies, craft & scrapbooking supplies and holiday stuff.

I am making wedding centerpieces--I was quoted $800 to do the same thing that I will be doing for $250! I purchased the hydrangea and salmon colored baby's breath from Afloral.com for incredibly reasonable prices. The hydrangea came a little "smooshed" but they just need some time with me fluffing them out. The shipping was unbelievable! They shipped from NY and I am in NE Ohio so granted I was close, but even the processing time was awesome--from the time I hit the submit order button, they had processed and shipped my order by the next morning. I ordered from them twice, and both times my package arrived the very next day.
