BridalSwapPlanning a wedding? Trying to stay on a budget? If you’ve answered yes to both these questions, you may wish to check out The Bridal Swap happening at the Croatian Cultural Centre this Sunday, March 11th. If you are unfamiliar with this unique concept, it brings together past brides, brides to be, decorators, wedding planners and craft artisans all under one roof.  For brides to be, you have the opportunity to purchase gently used items from past brides and past brides have the opportunity to sell items from their weddings which could include the ‘dress’ and wedding décor including centerpieces, candles, linens, glassware and vases and much more.  So instead of buying all new, it’s a great opportunity to re-use and repurpose items. The Bridal Swap will also have on hand an array of artisans offering handmade items or services for your wedding day including photographers, jewellery, cakes, wedding favours, flowers, invitations and so on.  The Bridal Swap takes place on Sunday, March 11th from 10:30 am to 3:00 pm. Tickets are available through Eventbrite and you have two options $25 for early admission at 10:30 a.m. for first choice on all available items and this is a popular time for the used items, or $15 for admission after 11:30 a.m.
