Weddings are a grand affair, and many people spend a lot of money to have the perfect wedding. They spend thousands of dollars on décor, catering, attire, invitations, etc. However, when the wedding is over, people often forget that these wedding items can be repurposed. Listed below are some ideas to repurpose wedding items.

Use in home décor

Some couples enjoy using the extra décor items in their home. You can easily use vases, a cake stand, or candles for decoration in your home. You can also donate these items to a charity so that someone else can enjoy them. However, refrain from using items such as the unity candle and wedding favors as decorations. These items are not made to be used for years and could be prone to breakage and/or damage if they become dislodged from the display. Instead, keep them wrapped up in their original packaging to ensure they do not become damaged or broken.

Give to Friends and Family

You can sell or recycle your wedding items after the big day. But you can also give these items to your friends and family members or donate them to a charity. It’s a nice gesture and always appreciated! People love getting wedding gifts, so give them away to family and friends who will appreciate them instead of letting them sit in a box in the closet.


Your wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime event, so you certainly don’t want to get rid of any items! If you simply can’t part with them, consider donating them to someone in need. Old wedding dresses can be donated to various organizations. You could also donate your dress to charitable organizations which will accept used dresses for resale in their stores. 


Bridal accessories can also be repurposed. Consider passing down your grandmother’s wedding band to your bride-to-be so she can wear it on your big day. These heirloom pieces are often passed down from generation to generation. You can also ask your bridesmaids if they want to keep the jewelry they gave you for your wedding as keepsakes. They might also appreciate the opportunity to borrow jewelry from your wedding ensemble and use it for their own upcoming nuptials.

Sell Online

You can easily sell your wedding dress, jewelry, and other wedding items online. There are some simple ways to do this, which we’ll outline below. You could list your items for sale on sites like Etsy and eBay. You’ll want to provide detailed information about the items in your description so that buyers know exactly what they’re getting. You can also take photos of each item, as well as images of the original packaging if you still have it available. Include information about any flaws or imperfections in the item’s condition. Price the item according to the current condition of the item and how much you think it’s worth.
