My son is getting married next year. Both the bride and groom are firefighters and we are having a firefighter wedding. I am looking for firefighter charms to add to the wedding favors with ribbon. I have looked on the internet and I keep getting the expensive charms. I want something I can purchase in bulk because there is approximately 200 people invited to the wedding.

Look among scrapbooking suppliers. I also just looked on Ebay, and they have some if you put "firefighter charms" in the search box. Often you can contact sellers and find out if they offer bulk pricing.
Also, if you Google "brass charms" you will get more of the suppiers of the kind of charm I think you are looking for. (Assuming you are not looking for sterling...)
Here is just one of many: http://www.acharmingplace.com/store/home.php?cat=279
Oriental Trading Company sells by bulk. We have gotten stuff for sunday school there. Try it.
Have you considered contacting the fire hall or halls where they work? Perhaps they have a catalogue where such things could be ordered or have some ideas for you.
Thank you to everyone who have responded so quickly to my search for firefighter charms. I have found them and plan to order them for my son's wedding. Thank you very much!!
Where did you find them? I'm getting married next Jan. and it's a FF theme. Thanks
I am interested in a website to purchase bulk firefighting charms for my daughters wedding. The only thing I am finding are the real ones. I need them for adding to knife, book, ets. Thanks

We are planning our wedding on February 20, 2007 at the fire hall. We are looking to do a fire theme based wedding and are trying to find things to do with the fire department for the wedding. If you could help us and give us some ideas that would be appreciated!

Hi There and congratulation's on your up-coming Wedding! I have designed two Fire Fighter themed weddings, the one just recently was in the colors of Black, Red and White, it had a very clean and classic look, but any color will work. I used white table clothes as the base color for the tables then I added black runners going down the middle of each set of tables followed by Red Rose petals and votive candles, then for the centerpieces I placed a Toy Fire Truck or Stuffed Dalmatian Dog with Roses and Rose petals tucked under and around them and then added more candles. THIS WAS SUCH A HIT! and everyone LOVE IT! the best part about using the toys is that the couple donated them to the Fire Department! So this Christmas they have given a gift of love to many children.
Wishing you a Wonderful Wedding Day and a Lifetime of Love...
I am having a fall/fire themed wedding next month. We found these roses that are yellow with red tips look like flames that we are putting on our cake. Cut the cake using a axe instead of knife. Also, for the dollar dance, use a fire boot for the money. These are just a couple of ideas. Have a great wedding.

You can always ask if you can use the boots (or some of them) to use as centerpieces. Also, use little fire trucks as favours. By all means have some kind of bell every time you and your new husband kiss. Instead of throwing a bouquet, throw a boot with confettie in it. Or you could use this as if you were going to throw water on a special guest.

HI! I have so many ideas my self about the hats idea. My idea was to take the hats and paste black and white pictures on the front of our history. Its great to sit at a table and be able to see how a couple came to be. Hope it helps!! Best wishes and good luck!
My daugher is marrying a fireman, so she decided to use an old timey cherry red pedal fire truck. The flower girl will be in it, since she is not using a ring bearer and her twin will be walking in front of her throwing out rose pedals. It is like brand new! It is like 3 feet long. It has an old bell you ring on top with the wooden ladders on the sides. We are going to decorate the sides with white ribbon and have a cute sign hanging from the back. Then it will be taken to the reception and placed by the grooms table which will have a firetruck cake and a cake in the shape of a hose. Also on the table will have a runner with dalmation material. On the table also will be a red 7" fire hydrant and a pair of youth size fireman boots, which will be used for the dollar dance (fill the boot). Oh and when the preacher says now you can kiss the bride, sirens will be going off. No telling what else she is going to come up with.
The reception hall we were getting married in burnt down so I am looking for a firehat favors
Hi Chris my wedding is in May and I was searching the net endlessly to find wedding favors that were firefighter related because the two of us are both firefighters.. I couldnt find any tiny plastic hats to put say candy in but i did find chocolate candy molds that are little fire hats so I purchased tiny metal buckets that I will spray paint red and make some hats hearts and tiny chocolate fire trucks and put them into the buckets instead.We also took clip art and made labels for them with our own printer
to stick on the buckets and we purchaced ribbon we had made with our names and wedding date on them that I will tie to the handle.. I have a ton of ideas if you need any more. best wishes to you Julie.
I'm also getting married to a fireman and I'm getting a lot of my stuff of of eBay Type in fire then click worldwide the go back up to the top put the cursor next to fire and click enter again you can then type in fire wedding firefighter wedding and so on.
There are things like fire truck soaps, invitations, ring pillows and my favorite wedding cake toppers. There is also a website for these www.jwcaketops.com
and the list goes on
We also have a pull along fire truck for the ring bearer to bring down the aisle good luck
you guys gave me great ideas for our reception, my father and my fiancee as well as half the wedding party and guests are in or retired from the fire service..we will be placing an item from each of their careers on the grooms cake table, which will appropriately be shaped and decorated as a fire truck! you guys are awesome, thank you!
I'm trying to plan my wedding with the firefighter theme. I am having problems with my invitations. I want to do my own, and I can't find a site to help me with this or anything that has to deal with firefighters. Tina
My daughter is getting married in November 2009 and is have a firefighter themed wedding. Does anyone have any ideas for decorations? She is on a tight budget, so we will be making a lot of the decorations.
