As many people and businesses are doing this time of year, I’d also like to do a little 2016 recap of our Wedding Recycle community and share with you the wonderful things we did this year…and all we’re planning for next year!

2016 was like planning my wedding…equal parts exciting, exhausting, exhilarating and stressful!  Ha!  Anyone else experience those roller-coaster emotions? Seriously, it’s an amazing journey and we can’t wait to bring you all the new and exciting things planned for 2017!

Lindsay & the Wedding Recycle team



Lindsay Recknell

Lindsay Recknell co-founded Wedding Recycle out of pure necessity…the fifteen centerpiece vases on the living room floor had got to go! But finding a targeted audience to sell them to was the tricky part – not just anyone wanted fifteen fish bowls for their home. Thus Wedding Recycle was born – a place to connect with other new newlyweds and recently engaged couples, sharing ideas, and décor, with each other. Lindsay has always been an entrepreneur, a multi-dimensional self-starter prone to acts of randomness and dynamic ventures in her life. In addition to consulting as a data analyst during her “day job”, Lindsay’s role at Wedding Recycle is everything – business development, content creation, media correspondent and community liaison. If you contact Wedding Recycle, it’s likely you’ll get a response from Lindsay first and from that moment, you’ll understand and experience the passion, dedication, joy and motivation she has for the Wedding Recycle community and the wedding industry itself.
