Enjoy your special day without the debt and with positive impact enjoyed by everyone!

The tragic reality is that most couples go into debt spending an average of $35k on their marriage, ending up in waste of $1,000, of basically new wedding dresses and decoration that will never be seen again, eventually ending in landfills. The dress itself costs an average of $2,000, which is America's average paycheck. There's a disconnect of 65 percent of Americans of 1-2 paychecks from bankruptcy. The economy is having difficult times. Now more than ever, a less wasteful approach and great savings help new couples, and families as well as couples who already got married, and of course our environment.

Sustainable Wedding Product Definition Glossary

  • Preowned Wedding Dress - Previously owned means purchased with the intent to wear. Preowned can be worn or never worn with tags still intact.
  • Resale - Previously owned product for sale that was originally purchased with the intent to wear. Sometimes a bride will purchase more than one bridal gown and wear it on her special day and some may not due to wedding-day fit and size issues, change of theme, weight change, and a variety of other reasons.
  • Consignment - Consignment - agreement when possessions are  sold by an authorized third party. Usually the consignee receives revenue from the sale in the form of a commission. 
  • 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 - bridal gowns that were in-store, on-rack, or in the manufacturer's showroom, but no longer for sale and might be 1 - 5+ years from their original production date. 
  • Overstock - Inventory that was originally purchased to sell (retailers) but were often purchased at a higher number than anticipated so are no longer in season and leftovers from previous seasons.
  • Budget Wedding Dress - A budget wedding dress tends to be on the lower spectrum in terms of cost. The average costs $2,000. A budget dress is usually a bridal gown under $1,000 depending on a couple’s budget. For some brides, a budget bridal gown might mean wedding dresses under $500. With that said, in some economic circles, a budget bridal gown might be anything under $5,000 or even $10,000.
  • 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.
  • Organic Fabric - clothing made from materials raised in or grown in compliance with organic agricultural standards. Organic clothing may be composed of Cotton, Jute, Silk, Ramie, or Wool.
  • Natural (organic) fabric vs. synthetic (manmade) fabric - Natural fabrics—such as cotton, silk, hemp, bamboo, and wool—are made of animal or plant-based fibers, while synthetics are man-made and produced entirely from chemicals to create fabrics like polyester, rayon, acrylic, and many others.
  • 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. Pre-owned, resale (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 1 item
