Since I am all about saving money my friend got married last year and had a ring pillow at her house she never used. I am not above taking things that are given to me and reusing them.
I did make a small change to it though…
What do you think?
Have you "recycled" wedding items that other’s have given you and have you added your own personal touch?

Hmm, nobody has offered any of their used wedding stuff. Nope. Cute pillow though. Actually, my mom showed me her wedding dress … it’s just so beautiful but completely not my style. I’m like … uh …. thanks mom …. uhhhhh….. uhhhhh … awkward. Haha. She just stood there waiting for me.

That pillow is super cute!
I have had a couple offers for stuff. One of my nephews/ringbearers is going to carry the pillow that my brother (his dad) carried in our Aunt’s wedding.
Also a friend’s mom just gave me 95 (NINETY-FIVE!!) milk glass vases that her mother had "laying around" after I mentioned that I though white vases would really pop with our light blue tableclothes and lavender flowers. I guess it pays to talke about your wedding plans to random people!

Ha! My dress is recycled! I actually wore it in a previous lifetime, and being that it’s awesome, thought "why not?" I’m making some changes (to fit the theme of our wedding better, and so it isn’t exactly the same) but it should be a huge cost savings for us.
