This weekend you don’t have to hit Craigslist or an online preowned wedding goods website to find some bargains from brides who’ve already been through the process. Instead, you can find your way to the Fraser Valley Wedding Swap and search through the goods in person.
Hosted by a couple of Vancouver wedding vendors, the Fraser Valley Wedding Swap gathers vendors, brides and brides-to-be for a swap meet-style wedding show. You can browse the tables of past brides offering up their wedding items at seriously discounted prices (the founders recommend a 40-50% discount off the original price) and even peruse used gowns in the Dress Booth, where the now-married can sell their wedding dresses through consignment.
This year’s Fraser Valley Wedding Swap takes place this Sunday (March 25th) from 11 am to 2 pm at the picturesque Fort Langley Community Hall, and you’ll only have to pony up $2.50 to enter—just make sure you have cash—and possibly win some great door prizes.
Happy (bargain) hunting!
