Toronto’s Original Bridal Swap | a huge success!

{ The Original Bridal Swap – Toronto West }

A few weeks ago we were so excited to share that The Original Bridal Swap was making its FIRST-EVER appearance in Toronto this year!

Well, not only did the Swap take place in Toronto this past week, it was an absolutely amazing success! So much love and heartfelt happiness is being sent out to the fierce-spirited Vicky over at Perfect Planners for lovingly stitching this incredible event together.

If you haven’t heard of The Original Bridal Swap before – here’s a peek at the awesomeness that went down in the 6ix last week.

It was a wedding show unlike all other wedding shows. At THIS show, PAST BRIDES sold their previously-loved wedding items (decor, fashion, accessories and DIY gems) to FUTURE BRIDES! – like a super fancy flea market with way better music. The oh-so-talented Jessilynn Wong was there to capture the fab.

{ Previously-Loved Bridal Fashion }

We all know that gone are the days of superstitions around wedding day frocks.  Bridal gown prices at The Original Bridal Swap ranged anywhere from $300-$800 - do you know a blushing bride who said “Yes!” to a dress at the show?

{ DIY Gems }

Another wedding day To-Do that’s awesome to pick up previously-loved? Signage and table numbers! You can never go wrong with class, timeless gold or white… and you might just be lucky enough to come across a Newlywed who’s already made beauties in your exact theme.
