About Wedding Recycle

From soon-to-be married couples looking for that perfect centerpiece to newlyweds looking to pass along their wedding dress or Groomsmen attire, Wedding Recycle is the ‘local’ destination for today’s couples.

 

We aim to be a community of smart, savvy and conscientious people, looking to buy and sell beautiful wedding décor and clothing all while being supported and inspired by the creativity and ingenuity of others going through the same experiences.

We are an image-focused classified site with a targeted audience, featuring highly shareable and promotable images. People have created listings to sell their wedding clothing and décor using the high quality images taken at their own weddings, crediting and linking those images directly to their local photographers.keith-renee-0015lrwm

Growing Community
Since launch in March of 2013, Wedding Recycle has morphed into a growing community – somewhere to embrace the idea of reducing consumption by passing along items we don’t need anymore, a place where we ask for and receive advice, share ideas around weddings in general terms as well as specifics and learn what to expect after the Big Day…the marriage is our ultimate destination, after all. Wedding Recycle is all this AND an online marketplace!

So welcome to the party! If you’re into it, spread the love to all your friends and family so we can keep this momentum going. Without the support and sharing of our community, we can’t grow the volume of really cool items we have for sale and thus, engaged couples won’t be able to find what they’re looking for.

Of course, you can find us on Facebook, on Twitter, and on Pinterest… because what’s an online company without a social media presence ☺

about

The Founders

Lindsay Recknell

Lindsay-ProfileA new Wife herself, 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.

So how does a guy like me get involved in a Wedding startup? Well, for one thing, you can blame Lindsay ???? That being said, I am so blessed to be married to the most crazy, wacky, brilliant, mischievous and beautiful woman ever. To me our marriage has truly been nothing short of a gift from God. If I can, in even just a small way, help other folks have what I have with Alexis, well that’s something I want to be a part of. (I know it’s corny, but, hey, it’s the truth)

I’ve been a computer geek and an entrepreneur since I was a kid (my little window-washing business paid for my first computer). I built the original Wedding Recycle website, giving us the start we needed to help you buy and sell your gorgeous stuff. I’m more of a silent partner now but you can still always reach me at redge@wedding-recycle.com or check me out at my newest venture, Redemption Handiworks.

 

Marketing & Social Media Support

Misty Eilar

used wedding decorWhen you work behinds the scenes and love it, things happen! I have met the wonderful founders of Wedding Recycle through another client of mine. I was excited to start a journey with them to help make this business better. I handle social media, newsletter, ads and more. I will also be working on Wedding Recycle Concierge, our newest venture! You will probably be talking to me a lot! I actually went to college for Special Education and have an A.S. degree. I love people and working with everyone. My husband and I decided I should stay home with our little girl (toddler years are fun, with another on the way) and it was a blessing. I now run my own business and help people with theirs. I love my job and all my clients. So look forward to more of me 🙂  Reach out at misty@weddingrecycleconcierge.com at anytime!
