Recycled Bride

It's a nice thought to want to wear your mother or grandmothers wedding dress. It keeps a tradition, and has a purpose and a meaning for you. What about the idea of using a strangers gown...or veil...or someone original "something borrowed" - that could get weird.

That's what this website - Recycled Bride - seems to be leaning towards. Dresses, shoes, invitations - anything a bride needs for her big day can be bought at an extremely discounted price on this site...even wedding rings. This one pictured here is a 10kt white gold engagement ring - that you could have for a whopping $100. At least it's a nice looking ring.

This idea of recycling everything from your wedding is indeed a unique one. For instance, there is a centerpiece section you can buy/sell from...but personally I've never been to a wedding where there isn't a dance around a table with a dollar bill to determine who takes home the centerpiece. But, it's a great idea for people who want that one special thing that they really can't afford - this site gives them the opportunity to sell it back.

The site seems to have a great blog though that I'm looking forward to follow - you can read and follow, too, here. By taking a quick look at it, my favorite is the one with the Alice & Wonderland themed wedding. Here are some pictures for you to take a look at - that's quite the cake!

Eventfully Yours,
