What’s New

The Bridal Swap Pop Up Shop Something new and exciting is coming… If you’re looking to find your perfect dress for less, you’ll want to check out The Bridal Swap Pop Up Shop from Thursday, April 9th until Saturday, April 11th. This is your first chance to look through once loved wedding dresses and perhaps find one for a great price… you may want to look through the Designer Dress Series as well. How awesome would you feel if you were able to snag this amazing Lazaro number for $1,495 (regular $5,500)? There is also a Monique Lhuillier & Jenny Packham dress up for grabs as well, and there may be more to come! Dresses not sold during the Bridal Swap Pop Up Shop will also be at the Original Bridal Swap on April 12th and at this point, sellers have an option to add another 20% off on their dresses so you might get it for an even better deal! The location… the Croatian Cultural Centre! You can also register on their website to be the first to know when they make the announcement.

Give Back While Getting a Dress

A selection of wedding dresses have been donated to the Original Bridal Swap, to sell with all proceeds going to charity. These dresses will be marked and you get to choose which charity it goes to. You can select from Streetohome, Canadian Cancer Society, or BC Children’s Hospital.

What’s Back

Sell Your Once Loved Wedding Treasures

Brides-to-be aren’t the only ones benefiting from the Original Bridal Swap. Past brides can register for a table and try to sell off all their old wedding decor that’s taking up space in the storage room. If you have a wedding dress to sell, you can consign it! From past experience, they’ve seen brides try to sell their dress at their table but to no avail. You can take advantage of their consignment service where your dress will be properly displayed and attendants will be on site to specifically sell the dresses… plus people can try on your dress too!
