Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Bridal Style.

So, you got married. You are super creative and you decided that to save money and really feel invested in your wedding DIY projects were the way to go.

Now, the wedding is over, and although you put a lot of blood, sweat, and tears into those creative little mason jars with the candles that you used for centerpieces, you’re not sure what to do with them. Sure, some people grabbed them and ran out of your reception like they just found buried treasure and didn’t want anyone else to notice, but now what do you do with the other 10?

How about offer them to another bride?! One who may not be as creative, or maybe just thinks they are really beautiful and wants to save herself some time.

Try the Recycled Bride, a website where you can sell and/or buy used weddings gowns, centerpieces, tablecloths, decorations, shoes and more.

Using a resource like the Recycled Bride, is a great way to reduce the environmental impact of weddings. Let’s face it, weddings waste food, paper, and energy. By using the Recycled Bride, “Married’s” can earn some money, “Soon to Be’s” can save some money, and the earth can rest a little easier, for at least one more day.

You can sign-up as a buyer, a seller, or an official vendor. If you want to sell one item, you can do it for free. After that, it seems that you may have to pay a monthly fee to be a perpetual seller. So, go ahead, post that “Gently used” wedding dress that cost you $3000 and see if someone else will buy it for $1500 or maybe $1000 if you smoked a lot of cigars and drank a lot of tequila while wearing it…
