Every time I'm in the dollar store, I check out the wedding aisle. Right now, it's getting overrun by baby items, but there are still a bunch of wedding items.
Each time, I'm there, I find a gem. The best was when I found the Brides magazines programs, usually $40, for only $1. This time, it was cookie cutters.
I found a ton of Lady Cookie Cutters made by Gartner Studios. They come in packs of three: lips, high heel, and a dress. Super cute, and only $1. I wanted to grab them all, but I don't have a reason for them. In my wedding planning mind, I would buy these, print a cookie recipe on a sheet of card stock, punch a hole in it, and attach it with a ribbon. Bridal shower favors are done.
Simple, easy, and cheap. Very cheap. They end up being $.33 each, assuming you have ribbon and card stock at home already (which I just feel like every bride-to-be has in the closet).
