Sell Your Wedding For Good

| February 1, 2011

It’s pretty common for brides (especially DIY and Budget brides) to sell wedding items on the Internet after the wedding. The classified sections on WeddingBee, Project Wedding, and RuffledBlog are growing in popularity. Some bloggers take it one step further and even list items on their personal blogs (shout out to Mrs. Puma!).

So for today’s Give Back Tuesday idea, I thought I’d twist up this common practice.

Consider selling your old wedding items, and donate the proceeds to charity. This idea could come in particularly handy if you’re in desperate need to clear some space in your living room. Mentioning in your classified ad that the proceeds will be donated to charity may motivate lookers to become buyers. (Remember to be honest…don’t say you’re going to donate and then not…I will come *smack you* if you do this, lol). While this SHOULD NOT be your sole motivating factor, remember that you’ll also get the added benefit of a tax write-off (oh, how I hate tax season).

“But,” you say, “I want to make a profit to pay for what it cost to originally buy these things.” Look, if that’s how you feel, then do it. Don’t let me or anyone else make you feel bad or question your opinion.

If you’re on the edge, simply allow me to offer you my perspective. As a bride-to-be, I know weddings don’t come free. The items I buy I’m buying because I want to…essentially because I want to feel good about our big day. When that big day is over, why not make another bride-to-be feel good buy offering the items at a discounted price, and in the process, make those in need feel good by donating the proceeds to a local charity?

Another option? Instead of selling those beautiful milk vases or picture frames, consider donating them to Goodwill, so a family in need can have the opportuntiy to spruce up their living room.
