Fraser Valley Wedding Swap – October 30

Fraser Valley Wedding Swap - Oct 30

Attention bridal bargain hunters! The Fraser Valley Wedding Swap is back on October 30th in Fort Langley. Here’s your chance to grab some deals! Vancity Vendor Chrissy Lambert from Makeup Infusion is a co-organizer of this event and thanks to the success of the previous swap, she and Leanne Ward are happy to bring it back for new brides-to-be in the fall.

A Word From The Organizers

“The second Fraser Valley Wedding Swap is sure to be another fun event for local brides in the Fraser Valley and Greater Vancouver area who are looking to save money.  Our aim is to connect former brides who have new or gently used wedding items with brides-to-be who want to purchase wedding items for their own upcoming wedding at reduced and greatly discounted prices.  Not only does this offer frugal brides a way to see the items for sale (rather than taking a chance with online ad listing websites) but it promotes a re-use, recycle and do-it-yourself (DIY) mentality.”
~ Chrissy Lambert, Makeup Infusion

The Details

Where: Fort Langley Community Hall, 9167 Glover Rd, Fort Langley – map

When: Sunday, October 30, 2011 – 11 AM to 3 PM

Price: $5 at the door, cash only

What to Expect

Some of the items that may be available for purchase or that former brides may want to sell at their own personal tables are chair covers, accessories, vases, mirrors, guest books, favors, candy buffet jars, invitations, and more.

They are hosting a Dress Booth where former brides and bridal party members can consign their previously worn (and cleaned) wedding or bridal dresses.  This means that brides-to-be can find greatly reduced pricing on new or almost new wedding dresses.  A score for brides on a budget!

There will also be a select group of professional vendors on hand who offer unique services at lower prices, like one of a kind men’s rings for less from Black Tie Rings or “faux” wedding cake rentals from Buttercream Couture.  These are just a few of the businesses you’ll see. Spindoctor DJ Services will be playing some tunes to keep the mood lively and fun and snacks and drinks will be available for purchase in case all that shopping makes you hungry :P You’ll have chances to win some lovely door prizes as well so get there early to snag the stuff you want for a steal! Like their Facebook page and follow @FVWeddingSwap on Twitter for more information and ticket giveaways!

Speaking of ticket giveaways…

I will be giving away 2 pairs of tickets to the Fraser Valley Wedding Swap next week! Keep an eye out on the blog or my Facebook page for updates!!

    Does this event currently still exist? I see this was from 2011. I am looking to sell my wedding dress and trying to find a way other than kijiji to do so. This event sounds like the perfect way for both buyer and seller
