We love that we can give back to our community through this event!
Once all the fun is had, and the brides have shopped until they dropped we are so thankful and proud to be able to donate many of the dresses and accessories left over to My Sister's Closet, a local Vancouver thrift shop with locations in Yaletown and on Commercial Drive. Revenue generated from the sales of the clothing help fund violence prevention and intervention services operated by Battered Women’s Support Services which support over 11,000 women every year.

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.
