The DIY Wedding

Where to Stock Up on...

Baking Gear
The over-25-year-old N.Y. Cake & Baking stocks everything from oversize cake pans to cutting tools to gold and silver dragées. 56 W. 22nd St., nr. Sixth Ave.; 212-675-2253

Dress Fabric
Designers love C & J Textiles, where the wholesale deals abound and the bridal selection (organza, satin, taffeta) is one of the best in the city. 230 W. 38th St., nr. Seventh Ave., seventh fl.; 212-354-0040

There’s no bigger art-supply store than the newish Michael’s, which stocks literally hundreds of ribbons in all shapes and sizes. 808 Columbus Ave., nr. 99th St.; 212-865-0813

Calligraphy Supplies
Time-honored art shop Blick Art Materials carries a vast array of paper as well as water-resistant ink. 1–5 Bond St., nr. Broadway; 212-533-2444

Linen Materials
The pros recommend basic cotton for table linens—it’s easier to iron and wash—and Fiber Notion has a great selection, along with a helpful staff. 849 Union St., at Seventh Ave., Park Slope; 718-230-4148

Unless you happen to have a resale number (usually required in the flower district), a Korean market known for freshness—like Annie’s, on the Upper East Side—is the next best thing. 1330 Lexington Ave., nr. 89th St.; 212-427-8800
