just wondering what wedding related stuff you would buy on ebay and what you definitely wouldn't buy on ebay?
I'm gonna order veil today from ebay! Its super cheap and even if it doesn't suit, I wont have lost a whole heap.
Would consider shoes, stationary, favours, any other bits from ebay really!!!
Use ebay a lot for "non wedding" stuff and have never had problem!
Wouldn't buy my dress because I've heard too many "fake dress" stories and anyway I have my dress and I love it
I wouldn't actually rule anything out.
So far I've bought the following items:
Personalised Guest Book
Personalised Unity Candles
Table Scatter Crystals
Organza Material Rolls
Organza Favour Bags
Mini Heart Sweets for favours
Ribbon for the cars
Probably more too that I just can't think of off the top of my head.....
It's definitely the way forward...
I think the only thing Id rule out is the dress and maybe shoes because I like to see those things before I buy!
I think I'd buy pretty much anything once its listed as new.... only exceptions would be the dresses, suits and shoes...these just have to fit!!!! Otherwise I'd chance anything - they're usually cheap so if u did make a mistake it wouldn't be a huge loss anyway!!
Samples of invitations,not 100% if i will buy them yet as i can't make up my mind
Still have to get
Wouldn't buy wedding dress.
I have bought on ebay:
Flowergirls dress... brand new with tags £65 i bought it for €12
I bought ring cushion and unity candles.
I'd probably not buy my dress or accessories as i'd want to see them first and try them on.
Loving ebay at the minute - so far got cufflinks, car ribbon and ordering unity candle soon.
Saw some pretty nice Thank You cards on it too that you can get personalised at a very reasonable price. Might go for those but they are the last thing on my mind at the minute
I will be ordering some of the bits for making my invites, may end up buying bm dresses and jbm dresses closer ot the time when I decide on what they are getting. I think the only thing I wouldnt buy would be my wedding dress, dont think I'd take the chance on it.
Buy alot of non-wedding related things on ebay, so quite comfortable with buying things on ebay!
- lots of ribbon (wide satin ribbon for wrapping bouquets and hanging pew ends, wide poly florists ribbons for cars and outdoor flower displays, narrow satin polka dot ribbon for buttonholes and table settings)
- led tealights for pew ends
- florists tape
all great and all way cheaper than buying them in a shop
