Top 5 Post-Wedding Money Spinners

Ok, so you burnt a hole in the credit card when planning the wedding (yes you did NEED the diamante encrusted candleabras!) Luckily there are lots of ways to recoup the cash after the big day....


Log On and Sell


Use websites that let you list second hand wedding dresses and decor items including the LoveWeddings classified section here. eBay is another good way to get rid of the things you will have accumulated (but we don't charge for our classifieds!).

Car Boot Sales


You could also hit the car boot and turn it all into cash in a few hours! You'll only pay a small fee get in and can have a really fun day haggling with the car booters. 


You'll find all the tools you'll need to plan yourself by clicking here, including a FREE wedding website, table planner, to do list, budget planner and much more.

The Power of Facebook


Post your items on your own Facebook page and get friends and family sharing like mad - it's amazing how quickly you can get your posts going viral, as friends of friends will always know a bride to be. 


Ask Your Venue/Suppliers


Why not ask your florist if any of their other clients want your flower holders for example, or ask your venue if there is another bride getting married the next day who may like your cake stand/table decor. There's no harm in asking!


Word of Mouth


Finally, just keep spreading the word! Just tell friends and family what you're selling, they can pass on in conversation to their friends and before you know it, your bridal treasure trove is turned back into cash!



There are many brides and grooms-to-be on the lookout for second hand items to save on the cost of their wedding, so save this list of ways to patch that financial hole you created in your bank account for after the wedding!
