First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes combining households and figuring out how to say, "That’s not going in the living room" nicely! As a newlywed this is fresh in my mind. I got married in September and have had to dance this dance often.
A natural progression with couples these days is date, get engaged, and move in together. Whether its before the wedding or after this conversation comes into play. The good news is there is a way to soften the blow and it has to do with consignment stores! Who would have thought??
Consignment stores are a great outlet for couples to sell "un-needed" furniture and create a little extra income (which can be hard pressed to find while planning a wedding). Another way consignment stores can assist is allowing newlyweds (or soon to be newlyweds) in outfitting their new digs without breaking the bank. We allow new couples to get quality, high-end furniture at a reduced, affordable rate. Plus it’s something that both partners can be apart of and eliminates the "his" vs. "hers" syndrome that can take place when choosing what stays and what goes.
