Don’t know if you’ve heard but we’re going to be on TV tomorrow! So excited, I can barely handle myself 🙂 Breakfast Television in Vancouver has asked me to come, chat about Wedding Recycle and our community and offer my three best wedding planning tips. Having just planned our wedding last year, and being so involved in the wedding industry, you’d think coming up with the three best tips would be easy…but no.

Here’s what I’ve come up with – what do you think?

1) Pick the two or three parts of the wedding that are the most important to you and your fiance and build the rest of your budget around those things.

2) There’s nothing wrong with a little Do-It-Yourself, especially when you can surround yourself with crafty friends to feed off their inspiration.

3) Embrace your inner “Hunter/Gatherer” and spend some time browsing the web for ideas and deals, coupon-clipping and of course, searching Wedding Recycle for gently used items to use! There is absolutely nothing wrong with re-purposing something you received from someone else and customizing it to your own creation.

This is what I’ll be chatting with the peeps at BT Vancouver so if you think they’re off-track, let me know before I make a fool of myself 🙂

We’ll be sure to post the video as soon as we can…

Have a good one!

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.
