Hi there UK brides,
I was thinking it’d be great to start a thread on swapping wedding items. I’m sure most of us have a selection of decorations, jewellry, hair pieces etc that for some reason is no longer needed. Most brides I know change their themes or colours or just get overexcited when it comes to shopping/DIY.
Here we could find new homes for those unwanted goodies and perhaps swap items. It’d be great to be able to recycle things!
Anyone else wants to join?

Fantastic! I have a bunch of things I’d be happy to pass on to another bride, mostly decorations from our wedding in July. I’ve put some pictures and brief descriptions below, let me know if you have questions on anything.
I also have some candle holders covered in black and white lace paper, will try and take some photos over the weekend. Oh, and an instructions sign for a DIY photobooth…
White, floaty drapes – we used white curtains made from a sort of netting like material, and attached white ribbons at the top so we could easily hang them.
Artifical white roses on green vines – there are a good few meters of this, there was enough to decorate the gazebo and the hanging baskets as seen in the pic so I’d estimate there’s about 10 meters or so. The roses are surprisingly nice, made from fabric rather than plastic.
Green sashes – about 20 sashes of green organza, they look very similar to the chair ties in the pictures below. You can also see a couple of the sashes tied at to the columns of the gazebo. See first pic above. Size is 30cm wide and c240cm long. Can be used for table runners or chair ties as well.
Large wooden letters (c30 cm tall) – during one of my more creative phases I ordered a bunch of MDF letters, painted them white and my hubby attached supports at the back of each to make them stand up. The letters spell All You Need is Love, or Love is All You Need – whichever you prefer! These were great for our photos

Oooh – I really like the letters!

Ivyperks – you’re welcome to them! They’re painted white so you can easily change the colour or add a layer of lacquer or even glitter if you’re the blingy type.
PM me and we’ll sort out the practical details.

I like the sound of this! I don’t know what can swap just yet but I am pretty handy in making bridal sashes and jewellery etc…
Where about in the UK is everyone from? There’s not many of us on here as far as I’m aware.

At the moment I don’t have any excess stuff, but I’d be happy to help out if anyone needs help making tiaras, headbands or fascinators (even birdcage veils).
@englishrose2013: I’m from Scotland. Where are you from?
