New & Improved! Recycle Your Wedding

Budget Weddings

Photos by:

After keeping you favorite items from your wedding and giving some to friends + family, it’s time to declutter your house post-wedding. It’s those dozens of vases and candles, handfuls of the same style chandelier and vintage hankies you used to decorate your wedding day. We just relaunched our Recycle Your Wedding, and it’s ready to be devoured. Hundreds of new listings added every day, by engaged couples + stylists just like you. In case you’re new here, it works like craigslist: it’s free to list and we don’t charge a commission, and you can now filter by area for local pickup. You can also post a Wanted listing if you can’t find what you’re looking for.


We’ve been offering this free service to everyone looking to pass on their wedding items to other couples since 2008 – back when I got married it was virtually impossible to sell/buy wedding decor I’d never use again from other brides. Since the fam could only take so many vases home, I had to sell the remaining wedding decor somehow. That’s when the idea came to life. Start listing your items here. Psst…you can also pre-sell some of your wedding decor, so all you need to do is to pack + ship them once you’re back from your honeymoon ;)

Sailboats, waves, octopus and jellyfish are just a few of the amazing seaworthy designs featured in Concertina Press’s line of vintage inspired nautical wedding invitations and stationery.

“Ruth is an exceptional artist and artisan! She was very prompt to stay in communication with me throughout my ordering process. She worked with me to make sure that all my needs were met exactly. It was so comforting to work with her through the stressful process of ordering the perfect wedding invitations! I absolutely LOVE the way her products turned out, and cannot wait to send them to all my guests! Thank you SO MUCH Ruth, your kindness and professionalism have helped me more than you know!” ” – Emily D.

After living in the small town of Woods Hole on Cape Cod for nearly 11 years, Ruth, the owner and designer of Concertina Press, moved down to the sunny East coast of Florida to be closer to family. Her Cape Cod map save the date is still widely popular with couples getting married on the Cape, along with the matching wedding invitation. Since moving south she’s added more tropical designs including seahorses, sand dollars and waves.

Ruth takes pride in customer service, and making the online ordering process as easy as possible while still remaining personalized. You can purchase samples of any of her invitations online, or contact her directly with any questions or for a quote.

Fresh Dallas Wedding

Few things make us love our job at Ruffled as much as when we see a lovely bride who’s all smiles on her wedding day — and lucky for us, we get to see quite a few of them! Bride Heylee is a perfect example, marrying her dream beau on a day captured by the wonderful Aaron Snow Photography. In case you’re crushing on Heylee’s dress as much as we are, know that she designed the dress herself and had her mother bring it to reality!

From the bride, Heylee: We wanted the day to really represent us and our relationship, which made for a laid-back, “no fuss” event. I’ve never been one who dreamed of an over-the-top wedding, so it was important that it was small enough to be intimate and relaxed. I also knew I wanted it to be creative and a little different than all the other weddings we’ve been to.

I wanted the whole event to have an earthy, organic feel, so we used as many natural elements as possible with a little sparkle thrown in here and there. I wouldn’t say I ever chose specific wedding colors, but we stuck with earth tones like grey, green, brown, ivory and gold. All of the decor was DIY by my family and I. I am extremely lucky to have many talented family members who were more than willing to help. My dad and brother-in-law did an amazing job of creating the altar, which they assembled out of tree branches. It made a huge statement at the ceremony and was one of my favorite parts of the wedding.

Some other DIY elements included the place card holders, table centerpieces which included succulent arrangements and candles, all the chalkboard signs and the lighted branches around the mantles. I designed my wedding dress and my incredible mom made it for me.

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? Don’t feel obligated to do things the traditional way if it doesn’t feel right to you. Many of the usual wedding traditions seemed a little silly to us, so we skipped them, and I’m really glad we did. The day goes by fast, so spend it exactly the way you want to.

Bethany and Dan Photography

“Photography so fresh you’ll want to slap it.”

In love wedding photographers with our suitcases packed for adventures. We specialize in personality driven portraiture and emotional storytelling.

Our number one goal on a wedding day is to show truth. We want the vulnerable honest imperfect and gritty real-life stuff. Ugly crying from how stinking happy you are to be married. We like messy hair and un-fluffed wedding dresses with dirt on the bottom, undone ties and tipsy wedding guests. Bring it.
