Best Places to Find Inexpensive, Affordable Wedding Decorations

Updated on October 12, 2014

Trying to Stay Within Your Wedding Budget? Get the Best Value for your Decorations!

Since I got married less than a year ago, I understand how quickly the cost of decorations can add up! The biggest challenge brides face is how to cut the cost of decorations, but in such a way that the decorations don't look cheap.

Throughout my research, I have come across some places to purchase inexpensive wedding decorations online that I feel are of a quality that you will pay little, but your guests will think you paid a lot!

In general, I have found that if you can buy in bulk, you will almost always save. In my Lens, you will find links to websites where I have found the best deals along with some pictures from those websites to give you an idea of the types of items they carry.

Wedding Decorations on Amazon

Amazon does offer some really great deals on wedding decorations. You may even be able to find some items sold in bulk. If you sign up for a year of Amazon Prime, you will also qualify for free shipping on some items as well, which would take a big chunk out of your budget alone.

Thousands of Decorations at Oriental Trading

Oriental Trading

Oriental Trading carries an irresistible assortment of fun, value-priced products for every occasion. Find party supplies, novelties, toys, favors, crafts, scrapbooking, beading, art supplies, decorations, treats, gifts for every season and occasion.

I enjoyed browsing Oriental Trading 's website because it literally has thousands of decorations to offer. Some can run a little on the expensive side, but there are also deals to be found, if you have the patience to explore, compare, and shop around.


Cute and Affordable Decorations Found on eBay

eBay is a great place to find a one of a kind deal. While eBay lists a lot of bulk items, there are also those unique pieces you run across every now and then that really make an event special. I have hand picked the following decorations found on eBay. Both for the affordable price as well as the quality of decoration.

Inexpensive and Classy Wedding Décor at the Dollar Tree

I know the average dollar store may have the stigma of having cheap prices and cheap looking merchandise. Which is true for some items. However, the Dollar Tree is THE BEST place to purchase your vases. The vases are great quality and you won't find a better deal out there.

I LOVE Your Feedback!
