Recycling Your Wedding Items


Keep your wedding decorations and use them to decorate your home. You can also use them for parties or other get-togethers. We’ve used several of our wedding decorations for our daughter’s birthday parties. You can also sell them to recoup some of your money back. Furthermore, you can re-gift them during the holidays! Photo frames, vases, and candle holders all make great gifts.

Wedding Favors

Do you have a lot of leftover wedding favors? Getting rid of them might be a little tricky depending on what they are. If they’re edible with a short shelf life, be sure to give some to your onsite wedding vendors to put a dent in your collection. You can also encourage your guests to take a few extras home with them. You can also give more out to family and friends during your day after brunch.


If you wore white shoes for your wedding day think about having them dyed a different color for future use. You can also try selling them online or donating them.

Wedding Gown

Don’t let your wedding gown sit in the closet collecting dust. Have a seamstress or tailor transform it into a fancy cocktail dress. You can also have it remade into a beautiful dress for your daughter or niece. You can also sell it or donate it to a needy bride as well.
