    Hi love! I think it’s perfectly fine to sell your wedding decor. It’s a good, conscious decision that will clear your space and save you money.

    Also, I answered the poll wrong. I meant yes haha. I plan on selling all of my stuff. What the heck am I going to do with 20 gold sequin table runners and 40 blue mason jars? haha I never even thought about keeping stuff afterwards

    You don’t have to find a charity or get a tax receipt, although that’s an added bonus. If you put an ad on Craisgslist, that stuff will be gone in a heartbeat.

    Who doesn’t sell that stuff? Something I always ask myself, “Will I want to show this to my grandkids?” a LOT of the time, the answer is no.

    Yes, it is right.  What are his reasons otherwise?

    chevone:  What will you do with them if you don’t sell them? The way I see it they get to be used and find a new life if you sell them and not collect dust. It’s better for the world and environment not to use stuff once and then never again and constantly need to produce more of everything. It also makes a new bride happy to find the stuff that you thoughtfully selected, and it’s fun to see her excited in her wedding planning. It’s also money in your pocket to use towards whatever you want/need. Win/win/win! I even sold my wedding dress. I got almost two months rent!

    Of course one or a few items might find a practical and special place in your home. I use the dollar store (they are really pretty actually) bowls that I bought for olives/feta at cocktail hour as salad/soup  bowls. We needed more bowls and those are harder to sell. I put some of the decor up around the house… these painted standing letters with our initials sit in front of our blu ray collection on our shelves… etc.
