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.
