a place for newly weds to recycle their wedding buys and a place for future bridal parties to find bargain items for upcoming wedding days

by lucianne stapleton in Portslade, England, United Kingdom

PERFECT WEDDING DAY 

 Your wedding day Is one of the most expensive days you will have in your life , all  the decoration and attire that is brought for one extremely special occasion is totally worth it to achieve that perfect day,

THE BUTS ...

But......then what happens to all those beautiful unique characterful items that are brought just for that one day after the day is complete ?? 

 So much of online sales pages and second hand/ Preloved websites are inundated with wedding attire and decoration and with a small percentage being successfully sold on , what happens to all the rest ? Will it end up being clutter in your home or in worse thrown away in the bin ??
Is there another option ?

There is Several 'recycle/ resell your wedding dress' websites available but really not much for selling decorations and surplus buys and I am unable to find a warehouse or shop that sells on wedding items that all be it maybe classed as second hand but were actually only used for one single day 

The only options seem to be for brides and grooms to sell their wares themselves online via Facebook, gumtree , preloved or eBay 

This option can be long winded with taking good photos, posting on the stated websites, negotiating prices, arrange collections or deliveries to suit both parties and then the big chance of not being successful in selling all the items or any at all. 

SO ... WHATS THE PLAN STAN 


We would like to provide a wedding day warehouse, where people can bring their used for one day items, in return we negotiate a price to buy these items thus giving the newly weds a bit of well needed cash back to start their blissful new lives together. 

This takes away the stress with not having to store things unnecessarily, trying to resell through said websites or worse throwing away items that can easily be loved and used again

We then use these items to sell on at bridal budgeting prices for Future wedding parties, they will be able to come and see for themselves first hand what we have to offer for them to use for their special days

We will provide new weekly displays to give inspiration to allow parties to see how wedding day dreams can be achieved with out the massive prices  

WHAT ELSE WILL WE OFFER 

In conjunction with the warehouse

We would have an online shop and community for people to be able to search for specific items they need ,or just browse through what we have, here we will be able to advertise what is available, along with giving estimates for items that newly weds are wishing to sell 

Our online services will also provide

a blog for wedding inspiration and videos or tutorials of how to upcycle, recycle, reuse items

OTHER FUTURE PLANS

We would love to then be able to offer wedding workshops, bringing in experienced crafters or other small business owners with in the wedding industry to the warehouse and teach bridal parties how to personalise their weddings for themselves, this is something that has become very popular over the last few years making the wedding super personal to the wedded couple

a couple of ways I believe this could be popular is in the way of a hen/stag parties or just as an open day/evening allowing people to also see around the warehouse with all its wonders and purchase items they are inspiring to use.     

THERES MORE 

We would like to in cooperate collection and delivery services so we can reach out further a field

Being able to give a comfortable relaxed space to have a preloved bridal wear section for brides and grooms to be able to try on bridal wear 

We'd like to hold Special open days with a wedding fayre/show/market feel to reach out to other small wedding businesses and make a community of associates to help promote one another.

 Brighton and hove is renowned for the amount of weddings that take place here the registrars in Brighton and Hove alone have approx. 1500 each year not forgetting the popularity of hen and stag parties coming to Brighton.

 I believe a wedding warehouse would be perfectly situated here.
