Resale sites are big these days (as most of our pocketbooks and mouses know), making it easier for us to buy that shirt or dress at a bargain. Thankfully brides are also able to get in on the secondhand goods, as companies such as Tradesy (formerly known as Recycled Bride), Ruffled, and Once Wed offer up must-have wedding items such as table runners, candleholders, wedding dresses and veils on the cheap.
While these sites a great way to hopefully find what you need for your wedding (and things you didn’t know you needed), one thing to keep in mind is just because an item is resale doesn’t mean it’s going to be cheaper. For example, a recent search on Tradesy for bubble candle holders turned up several options (from different sellers) for an average of $2.50-$3/each (price includes shipping). However, a quick google search pointed me to a similar item for less than $1.60 each with shipping included. So just be sure to do some comparison shopping before you buy!
Even though you have to do a bit of research before you buy, I did find some items that were not only a good deal but not easy to find. My selects are below!
