Today’s average wedding can cost tens of thousands of dollars and can result in so much unnecessary waste. Luckily, soon-to-be-married couples have a way to both save some money – and go green at Yarra Valley Estate’s Eco Bride Market.
This is the 2nd year we are hosting a Recycled Wedding Market which is like a garage sale – of sorts – for all things wedding related. For newly-married couples, the event is an opportunity to recoup some of their wedding costs by selling their gently used wedding items.
For recently-engaged couples searching for bargains or a way to make their wedding a little less wasteful, the Eco Bride Market is a chance to pick up needed items – from décor and linens to even a wedding dress – without paying the full retail price.
The event also features professional wedding vendors at our Open Day, so it reduces the stress and carbon footprint of wedding planning by offering a one-stop shop!
“The Eco Bride Market Day is an excellent resource to potentially save money and to cut down on waste from a wedding” said Courtney McConvill, a future bride and Wedding co-ordinator at Yarra Valley Estate.
While the practice of reusing wedding items is by no means a new one, the vision of the Eco Bride Market Day is completely on trend, as is the use of vintage, repurposed and DIY wedding items. Couples increasingly are looking for stylish up cycled items like window panes, furniture pieces and doors, as well as mismatched china, hand made pieces and something a little unique.
Getting these items easily and inexpensively, however, can be a challenge. Online resources often require a shipping fee and don’t allow for the opportunity to see, touch, smell and inspect the item before purchasing.
At Yarra Valley Estate; we are committed to being a sustainable events business and love to see our bridal couples embrace our philosophy and Reduce, Reuse & Recycle. This is what inspired the day!
The Eco Bride Wedding Market takes place from 11am – 3pm on Sunday 22nd September at Yarra Valley Estate, 2164 Melba Hwy, Dixons Creek.
