Wedding Wednesday: Deals & Steals

Only 17 days until I get married!  I can't believe it is so close!  I feel like I have a lot done, but lots of little stuff to do still.  We have a lot of odds & ends to buy this weekend and a few craft projects to do, but I'm feeling good about everything.  And if it doesn't all turn out perfect...I'm ok with that.

Today I wanted to show you some awesome deals I found on Craigslist of all places.  I posted previously about the wedding bubbles that I picked up for a steal and I have a couple more things I wanted to show you.

For centerpieces/table decorations, I'm just doing candles.  No flowers--too much work and expensive.  I'm doing a mix of vases with floating candles for centerpieces on some tables and others will have votives and tea lights scattered down the entire table. (Our tables are long rectangle tables, not circle tables.)

Find #1:
I got this entire box of 90 glass tea light holders for $20!  They are in perfect condition and there are tons of them.  They just need to be cleaned a little because they had been sitting in a box in a garage.

Find #2:
Yesterday I got 24 of these 7" vases that we are going to put floating candles in.

And 12 of these smaller 4" vases for floating candles.

There were also 5 other miscellaneous vases with them and I got all of them for $35!  That's a total of 41 vases for $35.  These are all in perfect condition too.

You can find a lot of great deals on craigslist, at yard sales, Goodwill, etc.  I'm excited to see how everything comes together when we start decorating the church and the hall in a couple of weeks!

Did you find any good deals for your wedding?
