Never is the idea that one person's trash another person's treasure more applicable than in the wedding world.

Why? Let's break it down.

-"Used," in this category definitely means "gently used." Like, probably for one night and one night only.

-If you're wedding-planning right now, you know that "engaged" is a synonym for "acquiring." Couples get, get, get, and get some more, and sometimes (oftentimes) end up with things that don't use simply because they changed their minds or ended up with more than they needed.

-There's a goodwill spirit weaving through this community; their wedding was wonderful, they want yours to be, too.
