I was experiencing some major writer’s block the past two weeks and actually wrote a post yesterday regarding rentals that I simply hated. Ok, hate is a strong word, but it just didn’t feel like information that I’d want to read and if I don’t want to read it, how can I expect you to.
So I’m currently hanging out at one of my favorite coffee shops (even though I don’t drink coffee) and was racking my brain for what to write about since it IS Wednesday and that’s my blog day. So I typed in RecycledBride.com expecting to see a website that I would recommend in the past for re-selling items post wedding. Well, to my surprise, I was directed Tradesy for Weddings and must say I’m pleasantly surprised.
Tradesy Weddings is a page on Tradesy whose mission is to bring gently used and authentic wedding items to it’s consumers. You can buy, you can sell, you can just browse and I have to say I LOVE the overall look of it. You can find dresses by Vera Wang, Maggie Sottero, j.Crew and more.

They also have wedding accessories like mason jars, centerpieces, cake decorations and more. Browsing through a few things, some prices seem a bit high for some items, but on a whole you can likely get a great deal if you do some digging and research.
Tradesy Weddings also offers free shipping on wedding purchases and offers a guarantee on the authenticity of it’s products being sold, which is pretty rad in my book.
So, what you do think? Would you wear a used dress or buy “recycled” items?
