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 really enjoyed The Original Bridal Swap – it was fantastic! Wedding shopping can be almost painful on a tight budget but the Bridal Swap made finding things fun and affordable. There was an excellent selection of bridal bargains and lots of beautiful gowns at budget friendly prices. Best of all-I found my dress! It’s a gorgeous designer gown and way nicer than I could have otherwise afforded. Thank you for putting on such a wonderful event!
