Weddings don’t have to be expensive and wasteful. Having a low cost (budget) wedding on a small budget is possible if you shop right!

Discovering great used wedding dresses at a deep discount wedding decor is thrilling. Wedding items, including your wedding dress and wedding accessories, retain almost their full value after one-time use (a few hours) and are virtually new, but can be bought at a discount! Circularity and zero carbon footprint are given by reusing these nearly new high-value items and do not impact your budget. Your dream wedding is possible at a fraction of the cost without losing any of the frills, even on the tiniest of budgets. Or it feels fantastic to-waste and expense for a modest or casual reception and ceremony with only a few guests. Be part of the social impact movement and make a difference to your debt load.

Your dream wedding without debt feels great, creating positive impact for everyone!

The sad truth is that on the big day, most couples go into debt spending an average of $35k, ending up with $1,000s in waste, essentially, never to be seen again with new wedding dresses and decorations, finally ending up in landfills. The dress itself costs $2,000 on average, which is the average paycheck for America. Although 65 % of Americans are 1-2 paychecks from bankruptcy, there's a disconnect with that. The economy is having hard times. Now, more than ever, new couples will benefit from a less costly approach and great savings.

Product Glossary | Discount and Sustainable Terms

  • Pre-owned - Previously purchased with the intent to use. Sometimes used and sometimes never used including tags. Some brides will buy multiple wedding dresses and end up wearing one or two.
  • Consignment - Agreement to sell one's possessions through an authorized third party (consignee). Usually, the consignee receives revenue from the sale in the form of a commission after the consignor's possessions are sold. 
  • Discount Wedding Dress- Reduced priced by a considerable amount. 
  • Resale - Dresses, Accessories, and Decor previously purchased with the intent to use. Some are in fact used, and others never used with tags still intact. Sometimes a bride will purchase more than one dress and wear it on her big day and some may not due to fit issues, change of event theme, weight fluctuation, etc.
  • Sustainability - Focuses on meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations. The three pillars of sustainability: economic, environmental, and social—also known: as profits, planet, and people
  • Discontinued Samples - Wedding dresses that were in-store, on-rack, or manufacturer’s showroom, but no longer for sale and might be 1 - 5+ years from their original production date. 
  • Eco-friendly - ‘eco’ friendly (or ‘ecology friendly’) is a term to refer to goods and services considered to inflict minimal or no harm to the environment.
  • Circular Fashion - Circular fashion is where industry waste and pollution are designed out, products and materials are kept in use for as long as possible, including through reusing and recycling, and where natural systems are regenerated. Used, used (used, secondhand, consignment) is an example of circular fashion that reuses assets that have value rather than disposing of.

If each of us bought just 1 used item this year as opposed to buying that item new, it would save 449,000,000 lbs of waste, equivalent to 200,000 cars. Just one item, Per Person, Per year…
