Kevil O’Leary, AKA Mr. Wonderful, AKA one of the stingiest billionaires in Canada, says that you can make a fortune by taking advantage of people’s most emotional moments. This is how funeral homes and wedding organizers make a ton of money.
The OP here explains that anything wedding-related will have a tremendous markup, which you can see by going to a bridal store. The OP gave an example of how wedding ribbon can cost $4.50 per yard, but at regular stores, they cost a mere $0.53/yard. It’s your special day, so you gotta splurge! If you want to save some money, try checking out your local dollar store for ribbons, lanterns, napkins, and other decorative items.
