He’s proposed, the ring is gorgeous, and now the wedding planning begins. Most brides-to-be start by filling a Pinterest board with gorgeous wedding inspiration, and eventually realise that a dream wedding usually has to come with a pretty generous dream budget. However, since most wedding items are only used once, some savvy brides have started to realise that there’s a treasure trove of affordable preloved wedding items on Carousell.

A mobile marketplace that lets you snap, list, sell in 30 seconds, Carousell is becoming a popular resource for brides to fund their dream wedding, or to let go of wedding pieces as they’ve been holding on because #hugot, but have run out of storage space.

Filipino Carousellers also seem to be warming to the idea of using Carousell to help them prepare for the biggest day of their lives.

A few quick searches and you can find several Carousellers looking to declutter and pass on their pre-loved items as they prepare for a new stage in life.

With more than 1.6 million listings, navigating Carousell sounds daunting. But we’ve narrowed it down to some key categories to get brides-to-be pointed in the right direction.

1. Find your dream dress (and it’s a steal!)

It’s your big day and all eyes will be on you. Carousell is a savvy bride’s dream, with thousands of listings for preloved wedding fashion. Most of these have only been worn once, so there’s a good chance you’ll find your dream dress at a great price, and in almost-new condition. We’ve got our eye on this Vera Wang inspired wedding gown. There’s also a sizeable collection pre-loved shoes you can go through to find the perfect match to your outfit.

2. Finishing touches

You’ve got the dress to die for and those killer heels. Now you’ll want to complete the look with flawless skin. Pamper yourself with that makeup set you always wanted at a fraction of the cost brand-new. Or that perfect shade of lipstick so you will look gorgeous on your special day.

3. Dressing up your venue

Once you’re all dressed for the occasion, you’ll need to make sure your wedding venue looks just as sharp as you. Looking to add those final touches to the location? Look no further than some of these sun jars or even a string of fairy lights on Carousell to really give your wedding and reception that x-factor.

4. Don’t forget your helpers

Bridesmaids and groomsmen will pay an integral part in pulling your wedding together. So make sure you reward them with a nice set of dresses, and they can look awesome even while helping you ensure everything runs smoothly.

5. Paying it forward

Once the festivities have died down, the couple will finally have more time to pause and take it all in. When it’s time to clean up and go home, you probably don’t want to find a place to store all the leftover decorations or souvenirs at home, or even worse throw them away.

Your items can go on to serve other weddings down the road, continuing to be meaningful to the next wedding couple.

Carousell lets you sell some of the excess accessories that you no longer need. Just snap a photo, list it on our marketplace and you’re all set to sell.

Now, your items can go on to help someone else have their dream wedding. Don’t forget to share your wedding experience with us on Facebook or Instagram
