With the average wedding costs in the UK soaring above £30,000, upcycling has become a great way to rebel against this trend and keep costs down while doing your bit for the environment. Choosing to upcycle your wedding doesn’t just help you to have an eco-friendly, budget-conscious wedding, it’s also going to give you so much more freedom when it comes to styling your big day.

Whether you choose one or two key aspects to upcycle or are going for a more ambitious upcycled wedding project, here are a few of our favourite wedding day upcycling ideas to inspire you.
