DreamGroup’s Original Bridal Swap: April 7, 2013

February 18th, 2013 by Jeannine

DreamGroup's Original Bridal Swap - April 7, 2013

Newlyweds, it’s time to clear out your closet of wedding stuff you no longer need because there are some brides-to-be that may be willing to give you some cash for it! You can do so at the upcoming Original Bridal Swap put on by DreamGroup Productions… and it’s happening on April 7, 2013! It’s a fantastic event and show producers tell me they are anticipating 400-600+ attendees this year – sounds like a good place to sell or buy, doesn’t it? They’ve got a LIMITED amount of Early Access tickets and for events like these, they’re quite important. With Early Access, you’ll get first dibs on all the best finds and once they’re gone… they’re gone so it’s well worth it to get it now!

Partial proceeds from ticket sales and Odds and Ends table sales will be donated to Streetohome – an organization that DreamGroup supports.

Past Brides:
Sell your items!

Here are a few ways the Original Bridal Swap can help:

  • Got lots to sell? Rent a table! – Small tables are $25, and $50 for a large one. Set your prices and sell your items to hundreds of interested brides! Register for a table here.
  • Got a wedding dress you don’t need? Consign it! – Bring your old wedding dress to the Original Bridal Swap and if it sells, you’ll receive 70% of the sale price! Some tips – your dress must have been purchased between 2008 and 2012, have it drycleaned beforehand, and price your dress to sell (they won’t accept a price higher than $800). Register your dress here. For more information on dress consignment, click here.
  • Only have a few items to sell? Sell it at the Odds and Ends Table! –  Bring your unwanted wedding items and DreamGroup will sell it for you at the best price they can and then donate the proceeds and any leftover items to charity.

Brides-to-Be: Get some great deals & meet vendors!

There will be lots of gently used items for sale at the Original Bridal Swap including glassware, linens, table runners, stationery items, and favour packaging… the best part is that you don’t have to pay retail prices for them! As I said earlier, consignment wedding dresses will also be available at prices no higher than $800! There will be some wedding vendors on hand as well for you to meet and get to know… who knows maybe some of them will be selling a few of their wares too! The vendor list includes Vancity Vendor Melissa Montgomery Photography & Isabelle’s Bridal, and other Vancity Bride favourites such as Uniquity Invitations, Photobooth Vancouver, Budget Blooms and more! There will be some great door prizes up for grabs too – for the entire vendor list, click here.
