Having a theme wedding is unique and exciting, but it can also be quite a challenge to be able to come up with decorations, invitations and other things which are all coordinated. Going to specialty stores and professionals to have everything custom-made is something that you can do but it is not very budget friendly.
One thing that you want to do is find theme supplies for your wedding without blowing your entire budget. Doing this is easy if you know exactly where to look for the things that you need.
The first thing that you want to keep in mind when looking for your wedding supplies is to go directly to the manufacturer. Whatever supply you may need it is always cheaper to get it direct from the source rather than in stores. If you find something that you like in a store check the label to see where it is mad or who distributes it in your area. Instead of buying it from a store where they have already added costs to make a profit go directly to who makes or supplies it and you may even get an added discount for bulk orders.
Next, think outside the box. A theme wedding does not necessarily mean that you have to get all your supplies from a wedding store. If you are having a beach themed wedding then you can check out souvenir shops along beaches. They will surely carry an array of trinkets that you can use. If you are having a masquerade theme then you can try vintage stores and thrift stores for great finds. You will be able to find supplies almost anywhere as long as you use your creativity, not everything is found in a bridal shop.
If you do not have the time to go around searching and scouting for things to use in your theme wedding then you can find supplies online too. Run a search using keywords like wedding supplies or the name of your wedding theme. You should be able to come up with a long list of suppliers that can help you find the right things for your wedding. Do keep in mind to look for suppliers who give discounts, sell wholesale and the like. You are sure to be able to save a lot more if you go with a supplier who offers this.
Finally, don’t underestimate the power of making your own theme wedding supplies! If you are one of those brides who have enough time and are more on the creative side then by all means make your own stuff. With the many innovations in technology and computers designing and printing your own invitations are easy. You can even make your own tokens and table decorations. Browse through magazines and websites to find ideas on how to make things if you aren’t too sure. There are many tutorials that will guide you step by step when it comes to making different things.
Getting supplies for your theme wedding does not really have to be costly or difficult to do. With the right know-how, wedding planning and creative thinking you can easily get everything you need.
