Given that Earth Day is coming up this Friday, we figured we’d try to help out our eco-conscious brides looking for a way to stay as green as possible while they plan their upcoming weddings. You can also arrange to pick up items with local brides to decrease fuel emissions and save on shipping. Eco and budget-friendly. What better way could there be to preserve resources than to recycle decor already loved by past brides? Our classifieds allow you to do just that (and for free!), so take a look around for some great deals and best of all, ready made DIY projects and hard to find vintage items.

recycle your wedding used decor

Clockwise from the top: soda crate and vintage soda bottles, $40 for all; gold vases, $5 each or $50 for a case of 12 (bride is selling 5 cases); DIY cake stand, $48.

We’re thinking about turning this into a weekly feature. You can list your wedding items here and we will pick our favorite items that are still for sale for our next feature. How does that sound?

    Love this! I’ve been following the blog for a few years now, and still remember the old classifieds layout you had back in 2008! (Un)fortunately I already sold my wedding stuff…
