May i please check if anyone knows a good place to buy wedding signs (blackboard), paper for crafts, poms, and somewhere to order wedding favors at an affordable price?
Thanks in advance!
Hi, not sure where abouts in London you are but I'll give you some general feedback from my experience. I've been trying to do a lot myself, and as cheaply as possible!
To be honest, ebay has been by far the cheapest and has the most variety available. Hobbycraft have a lot, but the prices are much steeper. It might be worth holding out for a sale if you have time.
What about somewhere like the The Works, or poundshops, poundsavers/stretchers etc? You might have to sift through a lot of irrelevant stuff, but you might just find what you're looking for. I would avoid specialist art suppliers at all costs!
We ordered our things to make stationary (pearlescent card, envelopes and linen paper) from www.papercutz.co.uk It worked out good value, but the p&p was painful if I can remember rightly.
Hope that gives you some ideas. Let us know if you have any more questions. Of course, we'd love to see pictures as well.
All the best x
wow, thank you everybody! your suggestions just kept me occupied an entire day online!
well my wedding will have a travel theme and i'm looking for mini plastic 'luggage' to store candies in. i saw a few on US websites but was wondering if you ladies know of any other UK websites i could order them as shipping is really costly.
also, i'm looking for airplane-shaped confetti, some travel-themed bunting, stack of papers for making flowers, a "postbox" or mailbox for guests to send us their wishes, a "bride and groom" sign to hang on our chairs, and the sticker wordings for pasting on our shoes.
blackboard - ok noted, but wow sounds like a lot of work Pinkafro! i actually need them for the bride and groom chair hang.
