Win Tickets to DreamGroup’s Original Bridal Swap: April 7, 2013

Win Tickets to DreamGroup's Original Bridal Swap: April 7, 2013

Great news! Remember, last month I posted about DreamGroup Productions’ upcoming Original Bridal Swap? Well, show producers Sarah Shore and Geneve McNally gladly offered up some tickets just for my readers! To recap, the Original Bridal Swap is a fantastic event where newlyweds can sell their gently used, unwanted wedding items to brides-to-be who want to save a buck or two on their upcoming nuptials. Past brides can sell anything – vases, candy buffet items, props, even their wedding dresses! Brides-to-be will have a chance to peruse through countless items and even meet some elite wedding vendors in the process! Check out my previous post for everything you can expect at this show.

    If I have a gorgeous new designer gown that I haven’t used, could I just sell my dress at the swap?
    I just bought it 2 wks ago at a store
    And then was offered to wear my moms shortly after- which I have loved for years!

    It’s a Hayley Paige ivory lace overlay, fit and flare?
    And never worn!

    Or do I have to have a whole table?
    Thanks Lisa :)

    Hi Lisa!

    Dreamgroup’s Bridal Swap lets you consign your wedding dress… you’ll have to inquire with them directly though… I’m just a blogger who wrote about them :)

    Here’s the FAQ about consigning your dress:
