Recycle, Repurpose, Reuse – Fairy Godmother Friday

Now that your wedding day has come and gone, and all those months of planning made for one of the best days of your life, what do you do with all of your wedding decor?!

We want to share a few ways for you to recycle, repurpose and reuse your wedding items!

 Recycle: You spent months planning your big day, maybe even years! The last thing you want to do is just toss out all of those vintage mason jars that you spent time searching for. Or the hundreds of yards in burlap that you simply cannot bear to let go to waste.

Chances are, if it’s something that is valuable to you, someone else may be looking for the same thing! Believe it or not, there is a market for gently used wedding paraphernalia.

Even better, your wedding planner may have a stock of wedding items that is ever growing! Selling off your votives, unique decor and dishes may be the easiest way to relieve yourself of your post-wedding inventory.

Repurpose: Just because your wedding is over, doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to get rid of everything. Chalkboards that may have previously pointed guests towards your nuptials, or those cute little mini boards that identified your sweet treats are perfect at home, too!

Chalkboards are in! Forget the days of printing signs, we are in the times where D.I.Y. projects are flourishing and what gives you better pride than saying you did it yourself?!

Reuse: Think of why you chose specific items… Centerpieces entangled with chosen pieces of literature, cozy loveseat instead of chairs at the head table, and even backdrops can be reused!

Remove the books from that big post-wedding box and place them on bedside tables, bookshelves or anyways a little literary touch can be added. Backdrops make for that much needed touch on patios or entryways, have a little piece of your wedding all over! Take that once head table loveseat and put it in your living room, because why not??
