DreamGroup’s Original Bridal Swap Recap – April 7, 2013

DreamGroup's Original Bridal Swap Recap - April 7, 2013

It may have been pouring last Sunday but that didn’t keep me from checking out DreamGroup Productions’ Original Bridal Swap at the Roundhouse Community Centre! To sum it up… it was PACKED and I can only imagine how busy it was for the Early Access ticket holders (I arrived after 11AM). There were lots of great deals to be had… show producer Geneve McNally was telling me about brides who have bought dresses at such a steal… some for as low as $50! Someone even found her dream Vera Wang for $600… regularly over 2 grand! One woman’s trash is definitely another woman’s treasure at this event and budget brides-to-be need to look forward to this every year. Good times and even better when I see some familiar faces like Vancity Vendors Melissa Montgomery, Denise Elliott, Isabelle’s Bridal, and Uniquity Design, and many more.

There were a few vendors that caught my eye at the swap… let me start with Endure Upcycled Designs by Karen Yaremkewich. She makes upcycled burlap banners from reclaimed coffee bean bags from a local roaster as well as cute garters made from men’s neckties. Like her Facebook page and check out what else she’s got in store on Etsy.

I was walking around and fell in love with the gorgeous fascinators by Anemone. They are made with both new and vintage materials, perfect for a bride wanting something one of a kind. Check out their Etsy page to see the rest of their inventory.

Last but not least… I found out there’s a vintage rental place on West 4th called Meuse Boutique. They’ve got some gorgeous items available for rent for weddings and events as well as refurbished antique furniture. I really loved the white glassware that they had on display… just add a few flowers, even something as simple as Baby’s Breath is well… breathtaking.
