The Original Bridal Swap Vancouver, BC

The Original Bridal Swap is a unique concept that brings together recently married Brides & Grooms, Craft Artisans, Decor Sellers, & Professional Budget Savvy Vendors with future Brides & Grooms who are on the hunt for their perfect wedding treasures and dresses!

"Her Something Old is Your Something New" ~ Bridal Swap has changed the way Brides & Grooms Shop & Plan for their Wedding!


Past Brides Selling their Wedding Decor

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 original purchase price.

Brides to Be are looking for a great wedding deal.


Yes! Reach out to recently married friends and brides on the forums to see if someone wants to share a table with you! We don’t mind! As long as all your stuff fits on the table the more bride love the better!

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 manage the dress sale. If it sells we will give you a call. If it doesn’t pickup is same day between 5:00pm and 7:00pm.

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.

There is a minimal administration fee of $20.00 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 and we only take up to a certain number of dresses so be sure to get your registration in as early as possible.

If your dress sells at The Original Bridal Swap you will receive 65% 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 have found that attending brides are very courteous and careful with the dresses, however, we definitely take precautions to help reduce wear and tear.

There are attendants overseeing the movement of the dresses, fitting room attendants in the change rooms, and we also post signage asking Brides to take extra special care while trying on the dresses. We maintain a clean floor and a no shoe policy in the change rooms to reduce dust and dirt.

That said, 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.

Price your Dress to Sell!
