Weddings can be expensive, but these Dollar Tree wedding hacks mean you can pull off a beautiful wedding without breaking the bank! While you might not want to go the cheapest route for every detail when planning your special day, you can tackle a few wedding to-dos using $1 items from Dollar Tree.

1. Think outside the box (or circle 😉).

Having a rustic wedding or sprucing up an outdoor space? Grab a $1 Dollar Tree hula hoop and create a “chandelier” by painting it white and wrapping it with hanging lights and greenery. Then, suspend it with rope from the ceiling of your venue or even from a tree branch.

2. Use picture frames to make elegant décor and table centerpieces.

Having an outdoor or evening wedding? Dollar Tree sells large picture frames that are perfect for making these rustic DIY lanterns! What an affordable and elegant way to add extra lighting and ambience without breaking the bank, especially if you’re going for that rustic, farmhouse look.

Put a few lanterns down the aisle walkway, at the altar, or on the tables at the reception… no one will ever know those lanterns came from Dollar Tree picture frames! 😱

3. Make your own flower girl bouquet.

If you’re looking to save on flower costs, consider making a bouquet for the flower girl OR a wedding rehearsal practice bouquet for the bride. Or, if you tend to have allergic reactions toward some flowers, you can even create a bridal bouquet for the big day using a paper towel tube for the handle, a foam craft ball, ribbon and Dollar Tree artificial flowers (look for inspiration on Pinterest!).

4. Decorate with trendy giant tissue paper flowers.

These tissue paper flowers are affordable and popular as reception decorations. Use them to decorate the tables, to place on the backs of chairs, or even to create a fun photo backdrop at the reception. If your Dollar Tree doesn’t carry the pre-made ones, you could easily make these paper flowers from Dollar Tree’s tissue paper.

5. Spruce up guest chair backs on the cheap.

If your venue charges extra for chair covers, decorate the chair backs yourself! Just wrap some tulle around the chair a few times and tie it into a knot. Then attach a pew bow to the tulle! You can either decorate every chair at your reception, or reserve this special touch for just the bride and groom.

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
