You spent a lot of time finding the perfect wedding decor for your special day – it would be a shame to only get to use it once. Not to mention, a lot of wedding accessories can be quite expensive. In some cases, you may decide to skip buying something you really want for your special day since decorations are only used once. 

Fortunately, there are some ways that you can reuse your wedding decor afterward that can bring new life to your favorite decorations. Windows on the Water is here to help ensure that you get the most out of your day – including how to use your wedding décor. 

The Best Ways to Reuse Your Wedding Decorations

Here are seven ways to reuse popular wedding decor items.

1. Wedding Partner Signs

Planning a wedding involves attention to detail, including personalized elements like signs that say your and your partner’s names or titles after getting married. After the big day, these signs can be repurposed into charming home décor. Hang them in your bedroom or living room as a sweet reminder of your special day. You can also incorporate them in your photo displays, garden or patio, or in various other ways so that they can seamlessly transition from wedding décor to everyday décor.

2. Cake Topper

The cake topper is a significant part of any wedding cake, but its usefulness doesn’t end on the wedding day. Repurpose your cake topper as a decorative accent in your home. Display it on a shelf, bookcase, or mantel for a stylish touch that will always remind you of your wedding day. You can also incorporate the cake topper into a shadow box display with other mementos from your special day. 

3. Candles

Tea lights and candles are essential for creating a romantic ambiance at weddings, but their glow can continue to enhance your home decor long after the celebrations are over. Repurpose these items by placing them in decorative holders or lanterns to create cozy lighting in your living spaces. 

4. Hanging Lanterns

When it comes to hanging lanterns, consider adding them to your outdoor patio or balcony to create a cozy ambiance for evening gatherings. These versatile pieces can also be used as unique table centerpieces for future dinner parties or even styled as a focal point in your living room to add a touch of romance to your home décor. 

5. Fairy Lights

One of the most popular wedding décor items, fairy lights, can easily be repurposed to bring a touch of whimsy to your home long after the wedding day is over. String them along your balcony railing for a cozy outdoor space or drape them over a canopy bed for a dreamy bedroom atmosphere. These versatile lights can also be used to create a magical ambiance for a romantic dinner at home or festive gatherings with friends and family.

6. Beverage Dispensers

Continuing to use your wedding beverage dispensers is a creative way to add a touch of elegance to your home entertaining. Fill them with infused water and fresh fruits for a refreshing drink station during summer gatherings, or use them to serve cocktails at your next dinner party.

7. Donate Decor to Non-Profit Organizations

If you’re looking for a more practical way to reuse your wedding décor, consider donating it to a local charity or nonprofit organization. Many organizations are in need of decorative items for their events and fundraisers, and your wedding décor could be just what they’re looking for. By donating your decorations, you can give back to your community and help those in need while also giving your wedding décor a second life.
