Throw an environmentally friendly wedding, save money, and keep it fabulous with this list of wedding planning and shopping tips!
Shop Made-to-Order Items
Wedzee connects you directly to artists, giving you access to order custom-made wedding goods. This cuts down on waste that comes from mass-produced pieces sold in bigger retailers or found elsewhere online. Your purchase from the artist is secure through Wedzee’s site, and your items are one-of-a-kind!
Buy a Preowned Wedding Dress
Shopping Wedzee’s selection of wedding gowns offers you the option to find your perfect dress for a smaller price tag, or even to find a designer dress for a major discount! The fashion industry generally contributes largely to waste from excess production. Shopping for a preowned wedding dress isn’t a new revelation and many brides love finding their dress from a resale site!
Shop other Preowned Wedding Fashion
Wedzee isn’t only wedding dresses. Shop their selection of bridal shoes, accessories, and veils. And even shop for your bridal party, with bridesmaid jewelry, flower girl dresses, and gifts for your best gals.
Opt for Sustainable Florals
Shop everlasting bouquets that you can use to decorate your home for years to come! Wedzee’s platform hosts artisans arranging gorgeous dried florals and lifelike artificial bouquets. We’re enchanted by Rosemary’s Garden Florals‘ wooden bridal bouquets. Not only is the made-to-order aspect inherently eco-friendly, but you won’t find your trash bins filled with florals at the end of your wedding night.
Decorate with Wedzee
Most wedding items are only used for a matter of hours on one day. Marketplace sites like Wedzee allow you to purchase cute decor, signage, and linens for a fraction of the price. Often, these items are sold in bundles that coordinate with your colors and theme. And being specific about your purchases cuts down significantly on the items that do end up in a landfill afterward.
Shop for Multiple Wedding Events
Considering there are often multiple wedding events to invite guests to, we think Wedzee is a great option to find decor. Anything from the bachelorette party, bridal shower, to the wedding reception! Outfit your celebrations with items that add that extra special touch.
Sell Your Items After the Big Day
Yes, you can save money even after the wedding. Recoup some of the cost of the items you’ve purchased by listing them on Wedzee. You can list decor, fashion, and accessories – truly, anything wedding. Selling your items means someone else can breathe new life into them, and they don’t have to be tossed out after your own wedding day.
