Ideally, we only get married once. Many of the items you purchased for your wedding (bird cage, card box, ring pillow, etc) will never be used again. Rather than throwing them away, sell them. Before purchasing them, look to past brides who may be able to donate their gently used items to you for a fraction of what they paid or for free. Check with relatives, family, and friends. Also look to places like Craigslist, wedding message boards, and bridal barter websites. Bride Share is a new site that allows you to exchange goods and ideas to make planning a little easier on your wallet!
