DreamGroup’s Original Bridal Swap – November 20

DreamGroup's Original Bridal Swap - Nov 20

DreamGroup Productions has an upcoming event that can satisfy both newly engaged and newlyweds alike! They will be hosting a Bridal Swap at the Villa Amato ballroom in Vancouver.

Newlyweds, this is your chance to unload anything wedding-related that’s been cluttering up your house! Simply register for a table ($25 for a small table and $50 for a large) and sell, sell, sell! You can even list your items on the Smartbride Boutique for even more exposure prior to and after the swap. Dress consignment is also available and you’ll be able to get 70% of the selling price back, as opposed to 50% at other stores (less credit card processing fees). This is a great opportunity for your dress to be seen by hundreds of women in one day! Remember to price your items well for a higher chance of selling them :)

For the newly engaged, this is your chance to take advantage of some awesome deals on used wedding decor, dresses and other various items! Not only that, you’ll be able to check out a potential wedding venue and talk to a select group of industry professionals. Isabelle’s Bridal, Uniquity Invitations, A&B Party Rentals, and Photobooth Vancouver are just a few vendors you’ll be able to meet at the swap. There will be door prizes up for grabs too!


Where: Villa Amato, 88 East 1st Avenue, Vancouver – map

When: Sunday, November 20, 2011 from 11AM to 3PM
(early bird access for advance ticketholders – 10:30AM)

Price: $12 online

I also want you all to know that I’ll be consigning my wedding dress at the swap too. It’s a size 6 ivory Ella Rosa BE64, worn once & newly dry-cleaned, cups and French bustle added. Check out my Smartbride Boutique listing for more information. If you want to try it on, you’ll have to go to the swap!

So past brides, gather up your old vases, linens, unused invitation supplies, and anything else you don’t need and reserve a table! Brides-to-be, happy shopping!
