The DIY wedding is very popular in Australia. As a culture, we like to individualise things that suit our taste, style and budget. The average wedding is believed to be around $36,200 these days (some polls are saying around $54,000!), which to me, is insane – when we have the opportunities available to us to have access to items that are way below cost price.
Planning my own Wedding in early 2014 (that's me on the right!), I just wasn't able to afford that. I searched high and low for websites where I could search for everything, in one spot, preloved, and cheaper than new. But came up with nothing.
I thought this would be the perfect opportunity not only to make a wedding more affordable, but to allow brides-to-be purchase items from newly married couples who were wanting to pass their items along that were no longer needed.
Enter Upcycled Bride.
The definition of “Upcycle” is to change something that would be thrown away into a new, more useful item.
Here you will find everything you need to create your ideal wedding on a budget!
Why stop at pre-loved items?
