Wedding Recycle has a lot of product listings…so how do you make your listings stand out from the rest? How can you attract more buyers for your items specifically? There are number of things you can do…and they’re free!


1) Use photos of your items “in action”

It’s proven that listings created using professional images or at least images of the items in use at your wedding, get more clicks and therefore more sales. Brides want inspiration – they want to know what your vase could look like all “prettied” up, sitting on their own reception tables…so show them! 🙂

I am seriously in love with this twine ball hanging centerpiece – gorgeous!

2) Post the link to your listing on your own Facebook page

Wedding Recycle listing links are easy to copy and paste into your Facebook status so you can share with your friends and family, who will share with their friends and family. Pasting the link will also generate a preview so they can see exactly what you’re selling. Just copy the whole link at the top of your computer screen, the part that starts with “https://” and paste it into a status update on your Facebook page.  Tag us at Wedding Recycle for more exposure!

3) PIN it

If you planned a wedding lately, you know that many Brides are using Pinterest to find inspiration and ideas for their weddings…so give them something to see! There’s a PIN button on all Wedding Recycle listings – click to PIN your own, or another item for sale that you love, to your Pinterest board for other people to see. Have you seen our Pinterest board all about DIY Wedding Ideas?  Or how about this one where your something old can be made into something new?

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.
