Buying in Bulk

  • Wedding Wednesday

Can’t I be honest?  Today is a boring day.  I feel like my creativity has disappeared AND it’s been raining ALL day long. It’s just a dreary day! However, sometimes dreary days are necessary. Not everyday can be cute and fun and creative. There are boring things that just have to be done…like filing paperwork, updating client accounts, entering payments and returning emails.  There is always a boring side to every job and today, I’m feeling my boring side.  It is on days like today that I realize that I wouldn’t survive at a desk job.  I would shrivel up and die, I’m convinced. When I’m not involved in something that is creative I get tired, bored and cranky.

I’ve noticed within the past year that wedding planning is the same way.  The end result is going to be beautiful and it is fun to plan… but the little details annoy me. I figured out what I wanted to do for centerpieces 9 months ago and that was so much fun! ….. the problem is that I have to collect enough supplies to make 35 centerpieces!  I found twigs at Walmart that I LOVED…. well, it took be a whole day to travel to every walmart between Fredericksburg and Richmond to find enough of them! It’s a tedious job!

So today’s Wedding Wednesday is all about buying in bulk! Whew! I feel like a pro in this area!  Throughout this past year I have ordered 30+ birdcages, over 400 peacock feathers and 10 lbs of teal tissue paper! Yikes! The basement has now become the “Wedding Warehouse”.  I have seriously thought about having a bridal yard sale after 10.10.10 is over to get rid of all of this stuff! Well, throughout this process I have found numerous websites and stores that have helped in my collecting of items for 10.10.10!

.

1. One great website that I have used for multiple items is : www.save-on-crafts.com.  Their delivery is fast and so far I’ve been impressed with their products!

.

2. Jakprints is an AMAZING printing company that I used for parts of our invitations…. that we are STILL working on! They’re getting close to being done!

.

3. Marshalls, Walmart, Ross, JoAnn Fabrics and Michaels…. couldn’t live without them!

.

4. Etsy is a lifesaver! I’ve actually only ordered a few items but the ideas that I get from this site are awesome!

.

5. THRIFT STORES ROCK! …. especially in Newport News!

xoxo, Katelyn
