Past Brides Selling their Wedding Items (click here)

An 8 Foot Clothed Banquet Table for Past Brides Selling their Decor and Wedding Treasures is $45.00 plus tax.

 

You should price your items at approximately 50% of the retail price that it was bought for.

Brides to Be are looking for a great wedding deal.

 

No problem! Join up with a recently married friend and share a table!

Past Brides are getting creative with how they display their treasures on their table.  They often use height to display their decor items or are including a few photos from their wedding to help Buying Brides imagine the possibilities.

We would love to have you come and sell your wedding treasures to Brides to Be.

Past Brides Consigning their Wedding Dress

We suggest selling your dress between 40-80% of the retail price. The higher the discount the better chance you will have to sell your dress.  Brides attending this event are looking for a great deal on their wedding dress!

No. You just have to drop it off in the morning and we will consign the dress for you.

If your dress doesn’t sell, you need to pick it up at the end of the event OR you can mark it as “Donate” during registration and we will donate it on your behalf to a terrific local Vancouver charity called My Sister’s Closet… https://www.bwss.org/

At the end of the event some of the donated dresses will be carefully stored for next year’s Bridal Swap and marked as a “Pick Me” Dress with 100% of the purchase price donated to a charity of the buying bride’s choice.  Buying a dress never felt so good!

There is a minimal administration fee of $5.00 plus tax plus tax to consign your dress. You just need to fill out a registration form and then bring your dress to the event.

Consignment registration closes 3 days before the event so be sure to get your registration in early.

If your dress sells at The Original Bridal Swap you will receive 70% of the selling price less any credit card handling fees.

Consignment through most retailers is 50/50. We take a smaller percentage in order to encourage Past Brides to price their dresses to sell!

When you consign your dress at a retail shop or online it can take months to sell, however, with The Original Bridal Swap you will have your dress exposed to hundreds of interested Brides in one day!

We definitely take precautions with the dresses.

There will be attendants overseeing the dresses,  fitting room attendants with the Brides, and we also post signage asking Brides to take care while trying on the dresses.

Keep in mind that multiple Brides may be trying on your dress and walking around in it so there is a chance that your dress may be exposed to minimal wear and tear.  Our track record is excellent though!

YES! We started to get requests from Brides asking if they could sell their Vera Wang or Monique Lhuillier dress at The Original Bridal Swap and we said ABSOLUTELY! Your dress should be priced at 40-60% off the retail price.

What people are saying

I went last year to source out some ideas for my wedding and check out a few vendors. This event is a great idea to find your "something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue" for the big day. And where else are you going to find a never worn designer wedding dress at discounted prices??? I got some great deals and ideas at the last event. TIP: get early-bird access if you are serious about finding a dress. It was crazy busy last year.
