Buy and Sell Pre-Loved Wedding Items!
I have been to the Original Bridal Swap multiple times (read the recaps here and here) and what you can expect is a large crowd and lots of stuff and if I were to give one piece of advice… Buy the Early Access ticket so you can get first dibs on what’s for sale. Once it’s gone, it’s gone and there’s no guarantee someone else will have the same kind of item, colour scheme, etc… There will be lots of decor items for you to look through including some amazing DIY that brides have done. I remember last year, I saw a bride-to-be score on this amazing looking wooden seating chart frame. Maybe you can find your own treasure at the show and have the DIY look without actually having to go through all the trouble Here are links to my Facebook albums of the previous shows I checked out so you can see what kind of items have been popping up at the swap: 2013 and 2015. Past brides, for $50+tax you can reserve your own table and sell all your goods to the many budget brides there who will hopefully have the same great taste as you. Register for a table here.
Sell Your Old Wedding Dress or Buy One for Cheap!
Back by popular demand is the Wedding Dress Pop Up Shop. If you’re a past bride looking to make some room in your closet (and some money at the same time), why not consign your dress? Set the price, let DreamGroup sell your dress to hundreds of potential brides-to-be and receive 65% of the sale price. If it doesn’t sell during the Pop Up on April 2nd, you will get a second chance to sell it on April 3rd with the option of adding a further discount to see if that will get it off your hands. Brides-to-be, you’ll want to get first crack at these dresses on the Saturday morning. There may even be some Designer Dresses up for grabs which you can purchase for just a fraction of the price. I’m told there will also be a selection of dresses donated to the Bridal Swap which, if purchased, the Bride will get to select from DreamGroup’s list of charities to DONATE ALL THE PROCEEDS TO. How awesome is that? It’s all about give and take Consign your dress here.
